Hellbent For Horror


May 27, 2016

Boo! 

You know those scary monsters that haunt your dreams?  Make-up artists and actors make them come to life. 

Make-up effects have evolved with film from the beginning of cinema. 

Artists delve into the dark parts of themselves to make real horrors we may not have even imagined. 

Sometimes the work is so good that the monsters become iconic in our culture. 

Can you imagine a time when no one knew what the Frankenstein monster looked like? 

In this episode I talk about make-up artists who transformed the craft and in turn transformed cinema.
