Magazines #15: More Horror Magazines

Monsters Unlimited Magazine

Here's a few more magazines for you to download and enjoy. The first one, Monsters Unlimited (1965), utilized a form of humor which was (oddly) very popular back in those days: "black and white monster movie still" plus "cheezy speech bubble" equals solid gold entertainment.  In other words, take an old picture of Godzilla and make him say something "funny", and you've got yourself a magazine!  Cracked magazine was perhaps the best at it.

Shriek! Magazine

Despite its somewhat amateur looking cover, Shriek! magazine is actually quite good.  If you're into the British horror films of the sixties, this 1966 issue is definitely your magazine.

Scream magazine

Scream magazine is one of the millions of horror themed comic magazines that came out of the sixties and seventies that bypassed the censorship of the Comics Code Authority by being a "magazine" rather than a "comic".  "Voodoo", "Witch's Tales", "EERIE", "Creepy", "Psycho" are just a few of the grisly magazines/comics that pushed the envelope of black & white.  Scream is perhaps a lesser known title, and it's not as over-the-top as some of them, but it's still worth a read.  Enjoy this 1974 issue.
