John Landis knows a thing or two about monsters. He's created a few and always speaks with wisdom when discussing cinema's darkest creatures. So when he writes a book about movie monsters, it's a good idea to read it.
I plan to pick up the book as soon as I can. In the meantime, Wired.com has a short preview of what's in store when "Monsters in the Movies" hits bookstores.
And for more of Landis talking about a subject he knows a lot about, watch this video.
