With smash-hit films like The Blair Witch Project, The Sixth Sense, and The Phantom Menace breaking Hollywood records, it's obvious that sci-fi, fantasy and horror films are back--and bigger than ever before.

Updated to include the most recent movie mega-hits, Creature Features has it all--the shockers, schlockers, blockbusters, bombs, cult faves, rare gems, classics, groundbreakers, gorefests, space operas, sorcery, Euro-splatter, and everything in between. From features, made-for-televsion, and straight-to-video, here are all the films you love and hate; the films you forgot about and never knew existed. Horror and science fiction fans will find films that matter and films that splatter in one critical and humorous guide.
