Filmmaker Harry Chaskin’s Bygone Behemoth imagines the loneliness of a Godzilla-like movie monster whose career has long since ended, and whose fame has faded from show-biz memory. The stop-motion is wonderful, and the details (d’aww ... Mothra obituary!) are surprisingly moving.
When we previewed some art from Bestiary 5 a few weeks ago, it merely looked like a cool book of monsters. Now that we’ve got our hands on it, we’re convinced that even the most jaded, been-there-done-that gamer is going to need a copy. This is a killer creature collection.
Tim Burton’s Edward Scissorhands, which came out 25 years ago this week, is more than just an updating of Frankenstein. It’s the story of a gentle robot who tries to live among regular people—and when I saw it as a little kid, this movie meant everything to me.

Mike Mignola gave us Hellboy, so it’s probably not surprising that he’s designed a totally bizarre new monster, which you can glimpse above. But what the hell is it? That’s an excellent question, since it’s on the cover of a new anthology called What the #@&% Is That?
