Monster Manor
Internet Content Creators:  (Horror Podcast)

2021 Rondo Horror Award Nominee, Monster Manor, is an interview series focusing on the contributors and fans of classic and neo-classic horror. Our first season welcomed such iconic guests as Michael Berryman, Daniel Roebuck (Grandpa Munster in the forthcoming Rob Zombie Munsters film), William Crain (Director of Blackula), Universal historian David J. Skal, J. Michael Roddy, PJ Soles, Mimi Craven, and many great artists and creators that have made a mark on the genre we all love!

Now in season 2, even more great guests have given their unique perspective on inspiration, memories, and passions even outside the world of Gods and Monsters!

Scott Fensterer, host and co-creator of Monster Manor, brings with him his great respect for these icons as well as his undying love of monsters that inspired his career in Commercial Arts. A career that has included everything from makeup arts to action figure prototype sculptor, prop fabrication for theme parks and private collectors, and everything in between! His work has been seen the world over in toy shops, theme parks, and on the big and small screens. He owns and operates Scott Fensterer Sculpture Studio. 

Mike Kinald is the co-creator of Monster Manor and writes/performs the sketch segments of the show. He, like many kids of the seventies, grew up watching the old television horror hosts like Zacherly and the Chiller Theater television show, so it was natural for him to couple his love and respect for these great hosts with his love of improv… and "Boris Vyoryetski" was born!

Monster Manor is the official podcast for Fantasm!

Since that time, Scott has been in the commercial arts field for over 25 years, working in film (Madea’s BOO – Special Makeup Effects Department), television (Robot Chicken, Season 5, Face Off/Game Face), toy prototype production (Mego, Proto-Hype Studios, Scott Fensterer Sculpture Studio), theme parks (Universal Studios, Walt Disney Corp), haunts, and more, but is best known for his appearances on the hit SYFY series FACE OFF and its spin-off, GAME FACE.

Skal, and James-Michael Roddy.

Scott and Monster Manor co-creator, Michael Kinald conceptualized Monster Manor following a comment comparing his home to that of Gomez and Morticia Addams… A Monster Manor. With that, Monster Manor was born. By November of 2020, the show page was launched… and by January 2, 2021, the premier episode aired.
