Overview

This whopping big McFarland Classic brings together 43 interviews with horror and science fiction movie writers, producers, directors and the men and women who saved the planet from aliens, behemoths, robots, zombies, and other sinister, stumbling threats—in the movies, at least. The interviewees reminisce about some of their great (and not so great!) films and tell their stories.

This classic volume represents the union of two previous volumes: 1994's Attack of the Monster Movie Makers ("anecdotes are frank and revealing"—Video Watchdog); and 1995's They Fought in the Creature Features ("a fun book for all SF film enthusiasts"—Interzone). Together at last, this combined collection of interviews offers a candid and delightful perspective on the movies that still make audiences howl and squeal (though fear has long been replaced with sweet nostalgia).
