More exciting news from the Bram Stoker International Film Festival! Many of the crazy 1950’s-style B-movies of Christopher R. Mihm will be screening during the festival in Sultan’s Sci-Fi Suite alongside a veritable cacophony of vintage creature features! Mihm’s award-winning monster movies have achieved a cult following over the years and mimic the style and content of those classic fifties fear flicks we all know and love! The majority of these films have never been screened in the UK so make sure you don’t miss out on these unique and exclusive movie screenings!

The festival takes place in the spooky town of Whitby, North Yorkshire (the home of Dracula!) from Thursday 24th October until Sunday 27th October and tickets are now on sale from the Bram Stoker Film Festival website.

For an exclusive interview with Christopher R. Mihm and a closer look at his brilliant B-movies make sure you grab a copy of Space Monsters issue 2 which is on sale soon and will also be available at the Bram Stoker Film Festival along with the remaining copies of Space Monsters issue 1!

Helena smiling 2

Space Monsters magazine would like to wish Barbara Bain a very happy 82nd birthday today! Barbara will always be our favourite Space Babe for her wonderful portrayal of blonde beauty Doctor Helena Russell on the classic Gerry Anderson television show Space:1999. Born September 13th 1931, Barbara had a successful career as a model before turning to acting where she achieved fame (and three Emmy Awards) for her performance as agent Cinnamon Carter in the hit spy series Mission: Impossible opposite her husband Martin Landau. The pair left the series at the height of its success and went on to co-star in Space:1999 which ran from 1975 – 1977 and was a smash-hit around the world. Bain has continued to have a successful career both on stage and screen and has also appeared at Space:1999 conventions over the years.

You can read much more about Space: 1999 in issue one of Space Monsters magazine which is on sale from various outlets across the UK and the United States or you can order direct from the publishers courtesy of the Classic Horror Campaign website.

Here at Space Monsters magazine we can barely contain our excitement at the news we’ve just received from those super space cadets at the Bram Stoker International Film Festival in Whitby, North Yorkshire. Not only are they screening a whole graveyard full of UK and world premieres of the latest horror films from around the globe but festival life president Sultan Saeed Al Darmaki has created Sultan’s Sci-Fi Suite, a room devoted entirely to classic sci-fi, monster and B-movies! Some of our favourite crazy creature features will be screening during the festival which takes place from Thursday October 24th – Sunday October 27th including the hilariously “so bad it’s good” cheese-fest Robot Monster!

Robot Monster (1953) tells a terrifying tale of an invasion of Earth by a space gorilla in a diving helmet who menaces the planet’s surviving inhabitants with his trusty bubble machine! Directed by 25 year old Phil Tucker and made on a budget of just $16,000 the film actually took an impressive $1000,000 at the box office although it has the reputation of being one of the worst films ever made – but that’s just the way we love ’em!

As well as Robot Monster, the Bram Stoker International Film Festival will also be showing Them! (1954), Earth Vs. The Flying Saucers (1956), Invasion of the Saucer Men (1957), Forbidden Planet (1956), It! The Terror From Beyond Space (1958), Quatermass and the Pit (1967) and many more sci-fi classics! Not only that, but there will also be live theatre, special guests, live music, the legendary Vampire Ball, gothic cabaret and the groundbreaking Dark Art exhibition!

Make sure you get your tickets and passes before they sell out! Just follow this LINK….
