A great German expressionist film! Doctor Caligari and his somnabulist minion, Cesare commit a series of murders in a German village. Everything was going right for the good doctor until Cesare falls in love with a German beauty.

I know what your thinking, that's just a guy in a gorilla suit with a space helmet on. But you'd be wrong, this is The Robot Monster!

I decided to do an illustration that was a bit more humorous. But I am still a big Gillman fan! Ever since I was 6 years old, the Creature has always fascinated me. When I was 8 I was able to go to Universal Studios in California, I enjoyed seeing the Battlestar Galactica attraction, Jaws, Psycho House, and standing on a giant chair that was used in The Incredibly Shrinking Man. But I absolutely loved the Universal Monsters attraction! That was almost 30 years ago but it's still burned into my memory.

Ardeth Bey (aka Imhotep, aka the Mummy), is my favorite Boris Karloff character! More diabolical than Dracula (actually his character is based off of Dracula) and with more speaking parts than Frankenstein!

Acne is the scourge of teenagers everywhere, but combine that with lycanthropy and you've got the crisis of a lifetime! The role of a lifetime that put Michael Landon on every family's television set for the next three decades! Okay, maybe that was a different show, but I Was A Teenage Werewolf must be a close second.

The Crimson Ghost wasn't a horror icon in the strictest sense, mainly he was a criminal mastermind from a 1946 movie serial called "Cyclotrode X". But this iconic figure brings along the sense of horror and the macabre that's perfect for the first day of The Countdown To Halloween! And yes, this is the same guy you see on all of those Misfits t-shirts.
