“It’s a perfect night for mystery and horror. The very air itself is filled with monsters.” – Elsa Lanchester as Mary Shelley in “Bride of Frankenstein” (1935)

Special effects makeup artist and on-set animatronic effects supervisor Shane Mahan hosts an evening exploring the evolution of creature technology in feature films and the fundamental role it plays in shaping monster movies.

Film clips will trace the evolution of creature technology, from “King Kong” (1933), “Bride of Frankenstein” (1935), “Creature from the Black Lagoon” (1954), “Horror of Dracula” (1958), “One Million Years B.C.” (1966), “Planet of the Apes” (1968), “The Exorcist” (1973), “An American Werewolf in London” (1981), “Aliens” (1986) and “Jurassic Park” (1993) through the digital age of “Zathura: A Space Adventure” (2005) and “King Kong” (2005).

The evening will include conversations with some of the films’ creative teams who will discuss the role art and technology play in shaping creature design in feature films. Check back for panelist updates.

Complementing the presentation will be a lobby display of historic and contemporary artifacts used to create the visually stunning effects for a range of aliens and creatures from classic monster movies.
