Film and television have held a fascination with horror nearly as long as they have existed, stretching back to Edison Studios’ short adaptation of Frankenstein. From Nosferatu through Dracula and Creature from the Black Lagoon, the silver screen quickly set about reminding audiences to fear the ugly, the grotesque, and the monstrous.
A certain sub-genre of movies and TV – increasingly prevalent – has sought to turn these horror icons into heroes. The new action-horror flick I, Frankenstein is a particularly over-the-top example of this trope in action.
The film’s release has gotten us thinking about other archetypal monsters recast as triumphant heroes. Join Screen Rant as we consider our favorite heroic modernized monsters.

In This Episode…
The sixth season opens with McKenzie Westmore announcing that this will be a season of extremes, and they are looking for bigger and more extreme makeups.

The episode starts with a foundation challenge, to do a makeup that represents themselves as artists, and inspired by a huge, crazy wig worn by a model. George wins and gains immunity for the week.
The spotlight challenge takes the contestants to a castle, where they are greeted by six princesses in lush gowns, holding a picture of a castle. Working in teams of two, each team must create a Beast to go with his castle and his Belle. »
