The world’s No. 1 booster of horror, fantasy and sci-fi (a term he coined), Forrest J. Ackerman spread his love of those genres through the pages of his magazine, Famous Monsters of Filmland. His AckerMansion in Hollyweird, Karloffornia, housed one of the greatest memorabilia collections in the world, and for years before his death in 2008, “Uncle Forry” held court there. This loving documentary of his life and work features interviews with the man himself and such friends as Ray Bradbury, Ray Harryhausen and John Landis.
