Movie Monsters (1974-1975)

Post  BoG on Thu Apr 15, 2010 12:40 pm

Movie Monsters - a simple title for a simple magazine. I happen to have all 4 issues; that's right - it lasted only until its 4th issue. I also thought the covers were interesting. This thread can also function as a quiz - can you name the creatures on each cover and what movie they're from? (answers in the next post)

Creature:__________ Film:___________ Creature:__________ Film:___________

Creature:__________ Film:___________ Creature:__________ Film:___________

The magazine was published in late 1974 to early 1975, over a period of about six months. Each issue had 7 - 8 articles on Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror films, as well as TV. The interior stills were all in black&white.

There was some minor controversy right from the first issue, which had a somewhat negative article on the
Star Trek phenomenon (belittling Trekdom & Trekkies; this was before even the first Trek film, remember). The mag received the expected barrage of letters in protest and a follow-up article was in the 4th & final issue, this time more favorable to 'balance the scales.'

The covers were by ...oh, wait. This is a chance for a 2nd quiz.
Can anyone name the artists of the above covers?
