So I have been eager to see their follow-up work, THE ACKERMONSTER CHRONICLES, a film about Forrest J Ackerman.
To just about everyone in science-fiction fandom and the related fields, Forrest J Ackerman is one of the most famous personalities the genre produced. He was a classic huckster with a powerful ego who was as instrumental in the promotion of genre literature as Stan Lee has been to the comic book industry.
|Lifelong pals: Harryhausen, Bradbury, Ackerman.|
"Uncle Forry" as he was commonly known was a true character. He was often generous, always friendly, and a natural born promoter.
|John Landis, Jason Brock.|
If you were a long-time fan of Mr. Ackerman, this documentary will be a pleasure. If you're unfamiliar with his life and works, then you should see the film. As David Schow once said, "All of us are Forrest Ackerman's mutant children."
It couldn't be better said.
