From writer Michael Mallory; Universal Studios Monsters: A Legacy of Horror was originally released in 2009, and a new edition is on the way. The Revised and Updated 2021 Edition of the book celebrates some big anniversaries, including the 90th anniversaries of both Dracula and Frankenstein.
The year 2021 is a milestone anniversary year for horror’s most iconic films–Universal Studios’ Dracula, Frankenstein, and The Wolf Man. Those landmark movies–as well as Universal’s new releases–are celebrated through this beautiful and frighteningly informative volume, newly expanded to include what the present and future holds for these venerable characters. With a foreword by Jason Blum that places horror in the context of our modern culture, the monster movie is new again–and no fan can afford to be without this book.
From the 1920s through the 1950s, Universal Studios was Hollywood’s number one studio for horror pictures worldwide. This official illustrated history is the comprehensive and definitive volume of cinema’s most enduring genre. Lavishly illustrated with production stills, posters, and rare behind-the-scenes shots, the book tells the complete history of these fascinating characters and the captivating films through which they achieved international recognition.
This new edition also features a new intro from producer Jason Blum. The book is due for release September 14th 2021.
