Totally enjoyable
19 October 2008 | by ericsuperstar-1See all my reviews

I collected Famous Monsters back in the day and used to argue with my older brother that the magazine WAS, certainly worth the paper it was printed on. That being said I may be biased in my rating, The DVD brought back many great prepubescent memories that I had when I would watch and read about monster or science fiction films. Like hoping aliens or some kind of monster would do something, anything, so that the teacher would have to postpone the test! Really, the childlike knowledge,(does that make any sense), that I still have which now I suppose we call Optimism are certainly caused by my early exposure to the products these people were offering. Respect to the cast!
