Since Universal Horror ruled the marquee, movie monsters have entertained us with their madcap, bloodthirsty antics. But these villains are not created equal.

Posted by Ben Hurry | Posted 600 days ago.
As an Australian, I am often disappointed to see great local films go unnoticed by a wider international community.
