Frankenstein's Monster named top horror movie creature - poll

PanARMENIAN.Net - Frankenstein's Monster has been named the top classic horror movie creature in time for Halloween, Belfast Telegraph said.

In a poll by SFX magazine, the creation - popularly portrayed with scars, a flat head and a bolt through his neck - drew almost a third of the votes, leaving Dracula in second spot.

Fans were given a choice of vintage monsters which feature in a new Blu-ray collection of horror classics, entitled Universal Monsters: The Essential Collection.

British actor Boris Karloff's interpretation of the reanimated creature from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein was first seen on screen in 1931.

Behind blood-sucking Dracula, was the third-placed Creature From The Black Lagoon from the 1954 movie of that name.

Other monsters in the list were the Wolf Man, The Bride Of Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, The Mummy and The Phantom Of The Opera.
