I happen to own a copy of this on tape,and it's simply an awesome documentary. It's a retrospective on the history of "Classic film monsters" such as Dracula,Frankenstein,The Wolf Man,Dr.Jeykel and Mr.Hyde,and more It's hosted by Jack Palance,whom is perfectly cast for this collage of classic clips. His delivery of lines is creepy and campy,but is perfectly suited for this type of special.
The clips are divided into each decade,from Edison's version of"Frankenstein", thru the classic "Universal Monsters",the "low-brow,low-tech" monsters of the 50's,a salute to Hammer films and more.
So if you have a chance check it out.
