Scary Monsters #120
« on: February 22, 2021, 03:02:20 PM »
Scary Monsters #120 presents Castle of Frankenstein, a tribute annual dedicated to the beloved monster magazine originally published sporadically from 1962 to 1975. As fans of earlier monster magazines filled with puns and bad jokes grew older, many turned to Castle of Frankenstein as it was considered a more serious take on genre films. This issue includes memories of Castle of Frankenstein, Frankensteinís Scary Lab Assistants, Whatever Happened to the Bride of Frankenstein?, Hammer Goes Hollywood, revisiting the Karloff classic Tower of London, 1922ís Nosferatu vs. 1979ís, an exclusive interview with Lynne Lugosi Sparks on the 90th anniversary of the release of Dracula, and much, much more! 144 fantastic foto-filled pages. COMING end of FEBRUARY 2021.

If that cover is any indication, it looks to be a great issue. I never owned an issue of CoF. Our local newsstand always carried FMoF.

How extensive is the write-up on Castle of Frankenstein? How many pages? Is it a good historical account? Are many covers reproduced?

The whole issue is a tribute to CoF.  Mainly the look and feel is similar to CoF, with several articles referencing the original mag.  Here is the Table of Contents:

Great magazine
    "They come from the bowels of hell; a transformed race of walking dead. Zombies, guided by a master plan for complete domination of the Earth."
