Classic Monsters Unmade: The Lost Films of Dracula, Frankenstein, the Mummy and Other Monsters Vol. 1 1899-1955 by John LeMay
Trade Paperback – Bicep Books – Feb 2021 – 421 pages
Seen every classic monster movie from the 1910 FRANKENSTEIN to the 2020 INVISIBLE MAN? Well, here’s some you’re guaranteed to have never seen, either because they are now lost – like DRACULA’S DEATH (1921) – or because they weren’t produced at all, like WOLF MAN VS. DRACULA (1944). This book has got it all: a version of FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE WOLF MAN where Bela Lugosi speaks as the monster? Check. How about Lugosi commanding an army in DRACULA’S DAUGHTER? Got that too. Or, what if Boris Karloff played the Invisible Man instead of Claude Rains? Yep, that’s covered too. More of a Mummy fan? How would you like to see Kharis terrorize a carnival then get sucked into a tornado? It would’ve happened had THE MUMMY’S RETURN been made. If unfinished terrors are up your alley, then this tome is for you!
