Going back a century the horror films coming out of Universal have set benchmarks. And up through the 1950’s the creatures and figures at the center of these movies became cemented in the minds of movie goers and kids.
For me, my first experience with them was with an early line of toys from the 1980’s.
I didn’t know any of these movies…But I knew those faces. They drew you in, and jump started a kid’s imagination.
I didn’t know that the deal was with The Phantom. But I could stare at the intricacy of Lon Chaney’s makeup work, and be revolted and fascinated. And that sullen creature of Frankenstein’s. The strange gills and scales of that green monster. And the piercing stare of Dracula.
And, eventually, I came across Dracula, late one night.
Playing with an old black and white TV, moving the antenna around and scanning though UHF channels. And then it was there. Grainy as it was, I saw a horse drawn carriage racing through the night. How do you walk away from an invitation like that?
I was fully hooked on the Universal Monster Movies.
