I'll come up with something in a minute.

Famous Monsters of Filmland

Does anyone else remember reading old Famous Monsters of Filmland mags? It stopped running in ’83, so I didn’t really get to read them when they were new.

It was just recycled articles about old monster movies, but it was interesting. Sort of like the Crestwood Monster books, only in magazine form.

I remember they had ads for things like pendants that had soil from Castle Dracula in them. Also, pet monkeys for $18.95! I so wanted a squirrel monkey. And yes, the ads were real. You could really buy a monkey and curse yourself for the trouble it would bring.

That’s not the point of the story though, the point in the magazine. Surely, I cannot be the only person who remembers these mags, can I? Lots of people read them, yes? Anyone?
