Description by OLDIES.com:
Welcome to the world of the Monster Bash conventions - the premiere annual "Classic Monster" movie event - where fans from around the globe gather to talk, meet celebrities, and share memories of growing up with monsters!
This video is a behind-the-scenes look at how the Monster Bash convention began, a glimpse into the world of the monster movies that thousands of kids enjoyed while growing up in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. The event brings together people who built the classic Aurora monster models, collectors who avidly hoarded 8mm horror films, die-hard fans who eagerly awaited the latest issue of Famous Monsters magazine at their local newsstand, and the legions of kids who stayed up late on Saturday nights watching their favorite old horror creatures shamble and flicker across their television screen.
Actors like Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney Jr., Vincent Price, Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing and John Carradine left their adoring fans hungering to find out more about the movies that made them famous. This is the Monster Boom Generation that never outgrew the intense fascination fueled by monster movie merchandising and way-out TV horror hosts.
BONUS! Over 60 Minutes of Classic Monster Previews
