Win Tix to See New Forrest J. Ackerman Doc in Santa Monica!


When it comes to influential figures in the monster magazine universe, the godfather to us all is, without a doubt, the late Forrest J. Ackerman, founder and loudest voice behind the periodical that started monster culture, FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND.

THE ACKERMONSTER CHRONICLES, filmmaker Jason V. Brock’s critically acclaimed documentary starring and celebrating the life and times of Uncle Forry, exemplifies Ackerman’s influence and quirky, warm and one-of-a-kind personality and will be having its world theatrical premiere at Santa Monica’s Aero Theatre on Sunday, November 24th at 5 p.m.

FANGORIA is giving away two pairs of tickets to see the film, the likes of which stars not only the late, great Forry but also John Landis, Ray Harryhausen, Richard Matheson and Ray Bradbury.

The screening will be hosted by Brock, his wife and collaborator Sunni, George Clayton Johnson, William F. Nolan and Diane O’Bannon who will engage in a lengthy Q&A after the film.

To win, email chris@fangoria.com with the words FORRY FOREVER in the subject line. Winners will be chosen at random.

For more on the screening, head to American Cinematheque. Good Luck!
