What makes a horror film great? A monster. One of the most interesting elements of monsters, beside from the special effects and startling plots, is the face behind the monster. Why would actors choose to do it, how do they nab the role and what it's like to dress up as something scary?! Some faces are a surprise, some we're all aware of, but either way, they've all got a story to tell. Join us and journey into the different motion pictures, discovering the face behind the monster!
