About Us

Monsters and Critics was founded in 2003 and has been one of the internet’s leading sources of niche entertainment news for nearly two decades.

The site has a special focus on Reality TV and Showbiz and caters to a robust, diverse community of readers.

The majority of our fans are based in the USA, as are most of our journalists. However, M&C also has writers located in the UK, Canada and Australia.

Monsters and Critics used to provide anime content but due to its popularity as a standalone niche that is now all hosted on our sister site
