The Wolf-Man is perhaps the greatest of the original monster concepts insofar as, unlike all the other monsters, he’s not a full-time monster. In fact, he just wants to be normal and live in a new town and walk around with a spiffy cane and not be annoying. But, sadly, Bela Lugosi BITES HIM and he becomes The Wolf-Man. This movie came out ten years after Dracula, and Lugosi kind of passed the monster torch to Lon Chaney. As a film, The Wolf-Man is slightly more sophisticated than pretty much all the other movies on this list if only because its themes are more interesting. Don’t we all have a monster inside of us?
