Through the the extensive use of movie clips, archival footage and interviews with the biggest names in fantasy films (Roger Corman, Ray Harryhausen, Ray Bradbury, John Landis, Joe Dante, and George Clayton Johnson, among others), this documentary traces Ackerman's 90 year transformation from obsessed moviegoing toddler to sci-fi literary agent (representing the likes of L. Ron Hubbard of Scientology fame) to "deaditor" of Famous Monsters of Filmland, a magazine that inspired some of Hollywood's most successful film makers. Also included is a video tour of the infamous "Ackermansion", which housed Forry's 300,000 piece collection of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror memorabilia, plus footage of Ackerman's many public appearances and signings. Famous Monster offers the genre fan a mind boggling trip down monster memory lane from the man who was there from the very beginning.
