With discussions about movie re-makes, I got to thinking about classic horror films and why we love them. It's the monsters, of course! Which one is your favorite?

I went Bella Legosi's Dracula, but I've always been more of a fan of Nosferatu, played by Max Schreck in the 1922 Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens. This character and movie are the creepiest of the creepy to me.

I too went with Bela Lugosi's Dracula. Totally agree with Mastermind73 about Nosferatu being so creepy. Really have to wonder about what Max Schreck was like in 'real' life.

Even when they were highly disturbing, the classics were really elegant and very creative. And still hold up over time!

I was about to say Nosferatu as well! The only problem I had with the movie was that the music was badly timed and made the movie less scary. Plus the dialogue at the beginning half of the movie changed to occasional narration by the end of it. He was so creepy, though.

I too went with Bela Lugosi's Dracula. That mansion / castle scene when Jonathan first arrives still creeps me.

I always go for the Monster in the original Frankenstein. The first time I saw it, I was in jr. high and I felt so sorry for him! Karloff was such a good actor that in spite of all that make up, you can still see the pain and turmoil going on inside of him.

Yeah, definitely gotta go with Lugosi.

(and, as a bit of meaningless trivia: The Creature from the Black Lagoon was played by famous underwater stuntman Ricou Browning, who also produced and wrote for the show "Flipper").
