No thread yet regarding the sad demise of Forest J. Ackerman? That needs to be remedied immediatly.
I don't believe I ever met the man, but as someone who grew up on his ground-breaking magazine, FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND, I do feel like a little piece of my childhood just passed away. FAMOUS MONSTERS inspired a generation fans, including, I believe, the likes of Steven Spielberg and John Landis.
It's a sad day for us old-time horror fans.
