My friends, what you see above is the glow-in-the-dark Wolf Man poster that a three year old Vic Sage pulled out of his box of Sugar Crisp cereal back in 1975 and was allowed to hang on his bedroom door…is it any wonder that I woke up in the middle of the night and was forced to cower in fear under my covers?

I have been looking for that poster for quite some time now and thanks to the Classic Movie Monsters blog I can share my childhood nightmares with you. It’s actually far scarier than I remember it but even that shock in the middle of the night couldn’t make me love the Universal Monsters any less!

There were three other posters offered as cereal premiums:

Frankenstein’s Monster
Sugar Crisp - Frankenstein's Monster - Classic Movie Monsters

The Phantom of the Opera
Sugar Crisp - Phantom of the Opera - Classic Movie Monsters

The Creature From The Black Lagoon
Sugar Crisp - Creature From the Black Lagoon - Classic Movie Monsters

It certainly looks like the posters are artwork by Basil Gogos from his Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine covers…not positive about that however.

  1. When my Mother agreed to let me hang the poster on the door, she probably should have clued me in on the fact that it glowed. I would end up getting the Phantom and Frankenstein’s Monster and they didn’t freak me out like the Wolf Man did…probably because I had become used to seeing them by then. :)
