FAMOUS MONSTERS MAGAZINES #02
Famous Monsters of Filmland is an American genre-specific film magazine, started in 1958
by publisher James Warren and editor Forrest J Ackerman.
Famous Monsters of Filmland directly inspired the creation of many other similar publications,
including Castle of Frankenstein, Cinefantastique, Fangoria, The Monster Times, and Video
Watchdog. In addition, hundreds, if not thousands, of FM-influenced horror, fantasy and science
fiction movie-related fanzines have been produced, some of which have continued to publish for
decades, such as Midnight Marquee and Little Shoppe of Horrors.
