Review – Monster Movie Matinee

10 December, 2014

Monster Movie Matinee provides ten new monsters plucked from horror and other movies and able to be dropped into a Pathfinder campaign.  While some are probably best suited to one-shot adventures, others could be woven into an ongoing campaign.  Pretty much, this product does what it says on the tin, if you want some movie monsters to bedevil your players, this is for you.

Monster Movie Matinee by Fat Goblin Games is a monster sourcebook for Pathfinder featuring versions of famous movie monster for use in your campaign.  The monsters range from CR 3 to 11, a good spread, and while most are lone threats several can operate in groups providing a wide range of encounter options.

Each monster gets a two-page spread complete with full color illustration and it is an interesting collection of famous movie creatures and part of the fun is matching the creature to the source (though there is a watching list in the back that spoils all that).  The adaption of movie abilities to Pathfinder is quite well done and there is some very nice design work here.

While I would have liked some magic items and adventure seeds tied to the creatures, most GMs probably already have their own ideas how to use them so it is not as much of an issue.  A well done and most amusing product.

Disclosure: As a featured reviewer for RPGNow/DriveThroughRPG, I received my copy of this product for free from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
