“This is our monster,” writes Susan Tyler Hitchcock:
“This is the monster we know so well, the monster we have taken into our hearts and lives, the monster that makes us tremble and cheer, the monster we fear, we seek, and we have become. This is the monster made by man. This is the monster called by his creator’s name, if at all. This is the monster known as Frankenstein.” – Hitchcock, Frankenstein: A Cultural History (2007)
It’s true: No face haunts not only world horror but also popular culture like the face of Frankenstein’s monster.
And no version of that face continues to compel attention like movie makeup master Jack Pierce’s version, brought to life so perfectly by Boris Karloff in director James Whale’s Frankenstein (1931).
The flat head, the sunken cheeks (created, in part, by removing Karloff’s own dentures), the scarred forehead, the neck bolts, and most of all those dull, deep-set eyes… Pierce and Karloff’s Creature seized the public’s imagination. Eighty-six years later, he shows no signs of loosening his grip.
