An exercise which, by its very nature, deems to buck the prevalent trend in fan created publications, Millennium Monsters openly champions the divisive subject of contemporary fantastic cinema. A refreshingly nostalgia free venture (with scarcely a mention of Universal or Hammer), through Millennium Monsters , our aim here is to encourage an appreciation for the more recent entries to the horror, sci-fi, and fantasy genres. Having collectively been around film fandom for over four decades, one of the most disturbing trends I found in film commentary was the often baseless predilection towards reviling the new. Something of a knee-jerk reaction (specifically in respect to the remake or reboot) Millennium Monsters is of a mind that this rather blinkered approach revealed more about the stubborn nature of film fandom than it did about the films themselves. Re-visiting the genre film of the last 17 years, Millennium Monsters embraces Neil Marshall's Dog Soldiers and The Descent and, en-route to an appreciation of Halloween friendly popcorn fodder, alights at the fog-bounds streets of Victorian London. Film junkie and Artist extraordinaire Mr Ash Loydon takes a look at Legendary's monster mashes GODZILLA and KONG: SKULL ISLAND and we proudly feature an exclusive interview with DEMON director Mark Duffield. To round out this first issue of Millennium Monsters, we take a critical look at such 21st Century terrors as THE SHALLOWS, BONE TOMAHAWK, QUEEN CRAB, and HARBINGER DOWN, to name but a few. While the marvelous remake of Stephen King's IT takes centre stage , the most recent Tom Cruise entry THE MUMMY also receives a fair crack of the whip. Featuring original artwork and previously unseen photographs. MILLENNIUM MONSTERS deems to give some love back to the largely maligned 21st Century creation.

In this, the second specifically themed issue of MILLENNIUM MONSTERS, we lift our gaze skywards and to our eternal fascination, not with outer space, but with what Earth destroying forces may reside therein! It should probably go without saying that the ongoing 20th Century Fox ALIENS franchise takes centre stage in our second compendium of all things monstrous. Besides revisiting the ALIENS VS PREDATORS double-header, regular contributor Ash Loydon takes in the glories of Ridley Scott's rebooted entries, PROMETHEUS and ALIEN : COVENANT. Award-winning journalist and author/founder of FANTASTIQ, Tony Earnshaw covers the urban shocker ATTACK THE BLOCK whilst film guru Leon Nicholson revisits the sleeper smash-hit CLOVERFIELD. Andy Ross takes a long look at the PLANET OF THE APES movie franchise, focusing specifically on the the most recent trilogy beginning with the sublime RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. A tentacled Earth-conquering menace and stable-mate to The Inaugural Halloween Edition, Keep Watching the Skies features original artwork from Ash Loydon and Andy Ross with additional illustrations provided by Paul Draper, Vince Rodriguez and Kevin Thompson.

Creatively spent and politically irrelevant, the American horror film is a mere ghost of its former self-or so goes the old saw from fans and scholars alike. Taking on this undeserved reputation, the contributors to this collection provide a comprehensive look at a decade of cinematic production, covering a wide variety of material from the last ten years with a clear critical eye. Individual essays profile the work of up-and-coming director Alexandre Aja and reassess William Malone's muchmaligned Feardotcom in the light of the torture debate at the end of President George W. Bush's administration. Other essays look at the economic, social, and formal aspects of the genre; the globalization of the U.S. film industry; the alleged escalation of cinematic violence; and the massive commercial popularity of the remake. Some essays examine specific subgenres-from the teenage horror flick to the serial killer film and the spiritual horror film-as well as the continuing relevance of classic directors such as George A. Romero, David Cronenberg, John Landis, and Stuart Gordon. Essays deliberate on the marketing of nostalgia and its concomitant aesthetic, and the curiously schizophrenic perspective of fans who happen to be scholars as well. Taken together, the contributors to this collection make a compelling case that American horror cinema is as vital, creative, and thought-provoking as it ever was.

In 1870, Louis Zistel began ferrying passengers from Sandusky to the Cedar Point Peninsula's beer garden and sandy beaches. In 1888, the Grand Pavilion was built, housing a massive theatre, bowling alley, photographic studio, and kitchen, and shortly thereafter, the resort's first roller coaster was installed. George Boeckling transformed the resort into a self-sufficient city and amusement park, but the park suffered badly in the 1930s economic depression. However, after Cedar Point changed hands several times in the 1950s, it became one of America's leading amusement parks. Today, the park is best known as the world's largest amusement park and the "Roller Coaster Capital of the World."

Robert Ervin Howard (1906-1936) was an American pulp writer of fantasy, horror, historical adventure, boxing, western, and detective fiction. He is well known for having created the character Conan the Cimmerian, a literary icon whose pop-culture imprint can be compared to such icons as Tarzan of the Apes, Sherlock Holmes, and James Bond. Voracious reading, along with a natural talent for prose writing and the encouragement of teachers, conspired to create in Howard an interest in becoming a professional writer. One by one he discovered the authors that would influence his later work: Jack London and Rudyard Kipling. It's clear from Howard's earliest writings and the recollections of his friends that he suffered from severe depression from an early age. Friends recall him defending the act of suicide as a valid alternative as early as eighteen years old, while many of his stories and poems have a suicidal gloom and intensity that seem prescient in hindsight, describing such an end not as a tragedy but as a release from hell on earth.

Prequel to the best-selling phenomenon Trainspotting, this exhilarating and moving novel shows how Welsh’s colorful miscreants first went wrong. Mark Renton’s life seems to be on track: university, pretty girlfriend, even social success. But, in this prequel to Trainspotting, after the death of his younger brother, Rent falls apart and starts hanging around with his old pals, including Sick Boy, Spud, and Begbie, and being drawn irresistibly into their wacked-out plans. Set against 1980s Thatcher-era Edinburgh—with its high unemployment, low expectations, and hard-to-come-by money and drugs?Irvine Welsh’s colorful crew lunges from one darkly hilarious misadventure to the next. Gritty, moving, and exhilarating, Skagboys paints their dizzying downward spiral with scabrous humor and raw language.

“Current fans and recovering Hulkamaniacs alike should find [Sex, Lies, and Headlocks] as gripping as the Camel Clutch.” —Maxim Sex, Lies, and Headlocks is the ultimate behind-the-scenes look at the backstabbing, scandals, and high-stakes gambles that have made wrestling an enduring television phenomenon. The man behind it all is Vince McMahon, a ruthless and entertaining visionary whose professional antics make some of the flamboyant characters in the ring look tame by comparison. Throughout the book, the authors trace McMahon’s rise to power and examine the appeal of the industry’s biggest stars—including Ed “Strangler” Lewis, Gorgeous George, Bruno Sammartino, Ric Flair, and, most recently, Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock. In doing so, they show us that while WWE stock is traded to the public on Wall Street, wrestling remains a shadowy world guided by a century-old code that stresses secrecy and loyalty. With a new afterword, this is the definitive book about the history of pro wrestling. “Reading this excellent behind-the-scenes look at wrestling promoter McMahon . . . is almost as entertaining and shocking as watching the most extreme antics of McMahon’s comic-book style creations such as Steve Austin and The Rock.” —Publishers Weekly “A quintessentially American success story of a cocky opportunist defying the odds and hitting it big . . . Sparkling cultural history from an author wise enough to let the facts and personalities speak for themselves.”—Kirkus Reviews From the Trade Paperback edition.
