Letter-size saddle-stapled Cinema Semiprozine printed on high-quality paper. Published by Jim and Marian Clatterbaugh with Steve Kronenberg. Editor: Jim Clatterbaugh. 34 issues from 1995 to 2015 plus one Special Edition. Publication schedule: biannual.
This publication strove to focus on the vintage mode of Horror and sf films from the 1930s to the 1950s rather than their modern gore or Splatter Movie counterparts. In addition to the expected film articles there was some Television coverage; reviews of cinema books and DVD film releases frequently appeared. Covers were generally painted artwork of good quality. While never a huge success in terms of distribution and sales, Monsters from the Vault was consistently interesting. The decision to end the magazine resulted from rising production costs and editor Clatterbaugh's persistent health problems; it is possible that occasional special issues may continue to appear.
