About Monster Manor with Scott Fensterer

One of my earliest inspirations that I remember was Universal Pictures' 1931 film, Frankenstein starring Boris Karloff as the "Monster". I saw this when I was four years old on a Castle Films super 8mm reel. As the light and shadow created images on the wall, I saw Karloff for the first time. Those eyes! That flat head! those long, gangly arms! I was in such trouble... that night was the one moment that set the course of my life. I wanted to do THAT!

I have been in the commercial arts/Special Effects/sculptural industry for over 25 years, with one of my first sculptural pieces based on Universal Pictures' 1941 Wolfman. A local effects artist saw it in a neighborhood comic shop and invited me to intern at his shop. again, monsters opened doors I could never imagine!

When the world changed in 2020, theme parks shut down. Movies stopped playing in theaters and sets were quiet. Plans we all had dramatically changed and things were just... different. There were no more conventions to meet up with friends and see celebrities. During a visit, my cousin (and co-creator of Monster Manor), made a comment that my house was like a museum... like an Addams Family Monster Manor! And in a few hours, our show was born. We could create a show that entertained in these odd times... maybe bring a smile back to people's faces, and offer an escape for an hour or two each episode.

A show that celebrates classic and neo classic Monsters and the people who brought them to life. I'd ask my friends and people I had met at shows and in the course of my work to come on as guests and talk shop! Surprisingly, everyone we asked said yes! A 13 episode season, became 26! we had over 1,000 followers and the idea for a spin-off was hatched. Boris, a guest reviewer, has a planned spin-off series, Boris's Spooky Fun-Time Movie Show, which will harken back to the horror hosts of old, commenting on classic and B-Horror films. We've had guests like James-Michael Roddy, Michael Berryman, David J. Skal, and more scheduled throughout 2021. 

One thing we realized early on is that running a show like Monster Manor is not a walk in the park! Equipment needed to be improved, sets were needed, makeup was required to bring Boris into the Manor every show! So much was learned in those first couple of episodes! The future looks good for the Manor, but support is everything! We can't do it alone and support from Monsterkids of all ages are the root of our show! 

Please consider supporting Monster Manor and it's mission in highlighting the legacy of classic horror and all those who make it.
