Legendary all-stars of cinema bring to life the evolution of science-fiction and special effects films from the wild and funny days of B-movies to blockbusters that have captured the world's imagination. This is the story of the Sci-Fi Boys, who started out as kids making amateur movies inspired by Forrest J Ackerman's FAMOUS MONSTERS magazine and grew up to take Hollywood by storm, inventing the art and technology for filming anything the mind can dream Written by

Boy, this one brought back the memories. I was one of those kids who grew up collecting FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND and watching Shock Theater (in our area, hosted by "The Bowman Body") around Midnight on Friday or Saturday nights. I read THE MONSTER TIMES and MONSTERS AND HEROES (which often featured the amateur filmmaking efforts of a kid named Don Glut) and ran home every Monday through Friday to see DARK SHADOWS. When I could finally afford a car (which usually turned out to be a lemon), I spent my weekends at the drive-in (usually watching a horror double feature; rarely anything that WASN'T horror or science fiction). THE SCI-FI BOYS brought it all back. For that, I can only say THANK YOU ALL.
