This is a great new DVD release that should be of interest to all the cool monster kids out there. Check out The Aurora Monsters DVD gang!

A tribute to "The Aurora Monster Kits", and the talented people responsible for bringing them to life during the "Monster Craze" of the 1960's, starting with the 1957 release of the classic horror films to TV, called "Shock Theatre". Join legendary horror host, "ZACHERLEY, The Cool Ghoul" and sidekick. "GORGO", as they discover the fun and excitement of model building. Finding inspiration along the way, through interviews with Aurora's cover artist: JAMES BAMA, sculptor: RAY MEYERS, and project developer: ANDREW YANCHUS. Including actors DANIEL ROEBUCK and JEFF YAGHER, as well as other artists & illustrators sharing their thoughts and memories of those endearing models that have left an indelible impression, earning a special place in Americana. This two hour DVD features in-depth interviews, a wax sculpture demonstration, rare photos, sketches & promotional material related to Aurora, never seen by the public. - 1hour 45 minutes, plus a "Zacherley, behind-the-scenes" bonus feature. First volume in the series - "LEGENDS OF FILM & FANTASY" presented by "THE WITCH'S DUNGEON" (See our other documentary, "THE WITCH'S DUNGEON 40 YEARS OF CHILLS")

I see it's available on Amazon, and also through Scary Monsters Magazine. I plan on ordering my copy right now!


  1. This is a great find. I was thinking I'd love to see some of the old monster films.

  2. I had Frankenstein and The Wolfman when I was a kid back in the 60's. Unfortunately, I lost them sometime back in the 70's. Still, it would be great fun to watch some of the people involved in their creation - as well as the fans - talk about these classic kits. Hey! Zach as the host is just a creepy cool bonus!

  3. That's sooo cool! I had The Mummy, Frankenstein, Dracula and The Wolfman...Godzilla, King Kong, King Ghidorah and Rodan too! I've GOT to get this DVD!
