Fear is an instinct so strongly
etched into our society today and many have become desensitized by the horror that is the world.
They have become blank slates, waddling through the chores of everyday existence
who need to be scared back to reality, otherwise they will foolishly
accept the world around them. Horror is the drug to cure this ills and
once injected into our
souls, it frees us and allowing us to escape, if only for a brief time....the darkness of
life. The instruments that fuel our passions are the men, women, and personalities that
have brought these terrors to life on the silver screen and in the safety of our
homes. They are the characters that we cheer
for and those we root against. The ones we hope escape that which lurks in the darkness
and those bastards we hope that die a thousand times over.
The following is a list of
actors, actresses, and personalities that we think have changed the way we watch horror.
Recently, I attended a horror convention and became re-introduced to many of the men who
laid the foundation for modern horror. Men like Lugosi, Karloff, Chaney Sr. and Jr. Men
that many young horror fans may not be accustomed to, but should be. Men who greatly
influenced my love of horror early on, but have been absence from my memory for too many
years. In these hallow halls they will be revered along side many of today's stars,
because without them there would be no horror.
This is a list of my all-times
favorite actors, actress, and personalities. Hopefully through research we can better
understand the men and women behind the movies. We will be adding to this list over time.
Again, as always, anything that you can added to these pages would be greatly appreciated.
