Where are the big-screen boogie-men for the 21st century?

                             

Once upon a time there were a group of actors, known as the ‘screen boogiemen’ who created the horror film/monster movie genre (starting in Universal Studios and later in Hammer Studios.) They were specialists who understood the psychology and performance style of horror cinema and became legends in the industry. The first was silent film star Lon Chaney Sr. (Phantom of the Opera, London After Midnight, the Hunchback of Notre Dame, the Unholy Three, the Monster, »

Prolific British actor Sir Christopher Lee dies at age 93

11 June 2015 8:17 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Christopher Lee, an actor who brought dramatic gravitas and aristocratic bearing to screen villains from Dracula to James Bond enemy Scaramanga, has died at age 93.

Lee appeared in more than 250 movies, including memorable roles as the wicked wizard Saruman in The Lord of the Rings trilogy and the evil Count Dooku in two of George LucasStar Wars prequels. But for many he will forever be known as the vampire Count Dracula in a slew of "Hammer Horror" movies - the gory, gothic thrillers churned out by the British studio in the 1950s and 1960s that became hugely popular.

He railed against the typecasting, however, and ultimately the sheer number and range of his roles - from Sherlock Holmes to the founder of Pakistan - secured his place in film history.

"I didn't have dreams of being a romantic leading man," Lee told The Associated Press in 2002. "But I »

Sir Christopher Lee Dead at 93

11 June 2015 6:20 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

After being hospitalized for respiratory problems and heart failure, Sir Christopher Lee has died at age 93. Lee passed away Sunday morning; however, The Guardian reports, Lee's wife waited to inform the public until she let his family know.After a stint in World War II, Lee made his film debut in the Gothic romance Corridor of Mirrors in 1947. His big break would come ten years later, when he played Frankenstein's monster in The Curse of Frankenstein for Hammer Pictures. This role was the start of a long and very fruitful relationship between Lee and Hammer, which included, most notably, his famed turns as Dracula, whom he played over ten times, in films like Horror of Dracula, Dracula: Prince of Darkness, and Dracula Has Risen From the Grave. Outside of horror, Lee had major roles in 1973's The Wicker Man and as James Bond villain Francisco Scaramanga in 1974's The Man »

Christopher Lee, Actor Who Made Dracula Count Again, Dies at 93

11 June 2015 5:09 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Christopher Lee, the second most famous Dracula of the 20th century — an impressive feat — and a memorably irrepressible villain in James Bond film “The Man With the Golden Gun,” in the Star Wars films and in “The Lord of the Rings” pics, has died. He was 93.

Lee appeared in 10 films as Count Dracula (nine if his uncredited role in the comedy “One More Time” is excluded).

His first role for famed British horror factory Hammer Films was not the Transylvanian vampire, however, but Frankenstein’s Monster in 1957’s “The Curse of Frankenstein.” His close friend Peter Cushing, with whom he would co-star in horror films frequently, starred as the Baron.

Lee made his first appearance as the sharp-toothed Count in 1958’s “Horror of Dracula.”

For reasons not quite certain, he skipped the 1960 sequel “Brides of Dracula,” but he returned to the role for 1965’s “Dracula: Prince of Darkness” — a movie »
