Throughout the history of cinema there have been countless imaginative monsters and creepy creatures put on the big screen. We’ve been fortunate to see great monster costumes, from the minimalist designs of the original “Frankenstein” to Jeff Goldblum’s sickening makeup in the remake of “The Fly.” Even today, horror and sci-fi filmmakers are still crafting monsters of impressive quality on varying levels of budget.
