Monster Madness: The Golden Age of The Horror Film/Mutants, Space Invaders, And Drive-Ins

A clip-heavy multi-part documentary of the early history of the horror genre, Monster Madness: The Golden Age Of The Horror Film concentrates on the Universal Monsters, with Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, and the rest of the gang.

It's probably the better of the two films I watched, but I enjoyed Monster Madness: Mutants, Space Invaders, And Drive-Ins the most. Get prepared to see lots of strings! Featuring Plan 9 From Outer Space, The Giant Claw, Attack Of The Giant Leeches, and Beast From Planet Arous, crudely fashioned monsters from the golden age of horror dangle about, and there's a few drive-in intermission clips, too. The film hops around in time, and some of the star interviews seem out of place, but that's ok. Monster Madness is a fairly comprehensive primer on the beginning of horror film.
