The movie monsters of yesteryear easily beat out Hollywood’s latest offerings of horror film antagonists, which is probably why they’re a major source of inspiration for Donald Caron. Rendering scenes featuring creatures like Frankenstein’s monster, the Wolfman and the alien from The Thing, Caron captures the bizarre creativity of these movie villains’ character designs and contemporizes them in a faithful, yet refreshing manner. Look through Donald Caron’s work long enough and you will find yourself regressing to a time when special effects and film make-up were potent in inducing fright.
