Children of the Night
Kids like me who grew up in the late
50's-early 60's are the first generation of American children to experience a massive
TV/movie merchandising campaign. After the release of the Shock Theater package
to television networks across the country, the monster craze really took off,
initiating one of the earliest television-inspired fads. Magazines, models, records,
costumes, and fan clubs appeared almost overnight--all devoted to the wonderful
world of monsters. And today, close to half a century later, horror films still
inspire a host of fans to hold conventions, swap or sell memorabilia, and dress
up like their favorite creepy characters.
This section of The House of Wax takes a look at horror nostalgia and fandom. You'll also find some biodata on the macabre Charles Addams lifestyle of the Tower Master himself! And please stay tuned for more features about monster fandom in the future.
