Photographs from behind-the-scenes of famous movies are like gruesome car crashes. They have a magnetic pull about them that forces you to look, but you never like what you see. These photos are amazing, they really are, but they lift the curtain on the magic of the movies. We see the tricks and secrets, and the next time we watch that film, we are a little disillusioned, whether we like it or not. Well, these photos are no different. It's neat seeing the men behind the monsters, but it might change how you look at them in the future. We've given you fair warning, so don't come crying to us if your favorite horror flicks don’t scare you the way they used to after you've seen these photos. You see, it's all fake. It's just a ruse. Monsters don't really exist.
There are plenty of movie monsters that don’t need their masks pulled off or their makeup removed to know who they are underneath. We can see Robert Englund beneath the Freddy Krueger makeup. We can make out Doug Bradley underneath all those pins in Pinhead's face. We watched Lon Chaney turn into The Wolfman, but what about the faces beneath the makeup and the masks that are more concealing? The actors who take these roles are usually a little more obscure. Why pay an A-lister salary when you'll never see who's under the mask? Well, until now at least. We might not know their names or their faces, but we can appreciate the work they've done in costume. Let's take a closer look at these unknowns. Here are 15 movie monsters without masks or makeup.
15 Nick Castle – Michael Myers From Halloween
14 John Matuszak – Sloth From The Goonies
13 Haruo Nakajima – Godzilla From Godzilla
12 Kane Hodder – Jason Voorhees From Friday the 13th & Hatchet
11 John Rosengrant – Raptor From Jurassic Park
10 Tom Woodruff Jr. – Goro from Mortal Kombat
9 Johnathan Breck – Creeper From Jeepers Creepers
8 Roberto Campanella – Pyramid Head From Silent Hill
7 Dane Farwell – Ghostface from Scream
6 Doug Jones – Pale Man and Pan From Pan's Labyrinth
5 Bill Bryan – Stay Puft Marshmallow Man From Ghostbusters
4 Kevin Peter Hall – The Predator From Predator
3 Bolaji Badejo – The Alien From Alien
2 Max Schreck – Count Orlok From Nosferatu
1 Boris Karloff – Frankenstein's Monster From Frankenstein
Boris Karloff as easily the most recognizable name on this list, but there is a great many people who don't know what the Frankenstein monster really looks like. You say, which Frankenstein monster did Karloff play? Well, close your eyes and picture Frankenstein's monster. That's Karloff. Nearly every version that has followed since the 1931 film have tried to replicate Karloff's image in makeup because it's become so iconic in horror. Even though Karloff would go on to do many, many films, it would be his portrayals of this monster that would become his primary legacy.
