2.) Classic Horror
Sculpted by Peter Busch Jensen – Denmark
There is a certain thrill that exists in being scared. Masters of the craft like Lon Chaney, who, in the silent era played The Phantom of the Opera and The Hunchback Of Notre Dame, have portrayed monsters of all sorts on film from the very start.
Later in the classic period of horror, which was the late 1930’s – 1950’s Universal Studios owned the genre of Horror with such black and white standards as Dracula, starring Bella Legosi, and Frankenstein with Boris Karloff. Other features of the time were the Wolfman with Lon Chaney Jr, and The Mummy, also with Boris Karloff.
The monster to have the most versions on film was the Vampire, who started out in the silent era of film as Nosferatu. It evolved more, up through the 1990’s to today with over a dozen different vampire movies making it to the big screen (some even being comedies).
Numerous contemporary artists have played the Vampire role. Including: Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Wesley Snipes, Gary Oldman, Antonio Banderas, Jada Pinkett-Smith and George Hamilton.
