Actor Doug Bradley, who portrayed the terrifying character Pinhead in Clive Barker's Hellraiser series of films, provides a unique and personal guide to cinema monsters and the men who portrayed them. He also briefly examines the cultural and dramatic history of the mask, from cave art through Greek theatre to trick or treat.
In addition to the classic
horror actors Lon Chaney and Boris Karloff, such unforgettable characters as the Wolf Man, The Phantom of the Opera
and The Hunchback of Notre Dame are covered in detail. Bradley also discusses the European tradition, such as Jean
Marais's beast in La Belle et la Bete, and work of Vincent Price and the Hammer films of the fifties and sixties.
