Cover art was by Larry Byrd or Jerry Kay and contents of each issue included the usual mix of profiles of new releases (such as The Beast of Yucca Flats), interviews with stars such as Nick Adams and Glenn Strange, retrospective pieces on classic horror movies (such as King KongMurders in the Rue Morgue), plus lots of images.

Each issue included a colour fold-out poster. Ads included items such as a two disc album of Christopher Lee reading Dracula, monster masks, hands and feet, a Shrunken Head and I-Scream Spoons.
