We already know that Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine is making a return. Now it seems they’re the inspiration for a news series of creature features showcasing five of cinema’s most iconic monsters being produced by the ambitious low budget production company Halcyon International Pictures under the banner Famous Monsters of Filmland: Reboot.
Halcyon has announced the slate of films on its website, and with the Cannes Film Festival just wrapping, I assume we should be hearing more information about budget-conscious horrors in the very near future. For now, here’s the official announcement:
For decades they roamed cinemas, video stores, and late night TV, haunting us, exciting us, and inspiring us. Now the Famous Monsters are back…in five ALL NEW movies ready to entertain an all new generation.
NOW IN PRODUCTION
They’ve also made available the promo art seen below. Why none for The Creature Returns, I wonder?
Halcyon even has a promo trailer composed of footage that should give us a taste of what to expect. Cannot say for sure how much of this footage is from the actual movies or if it’s just a promo reel reflective of what to expect when the movies go into production.
