This little documentary is a classic inspiration to many.
26 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let it be noted that "Scream Greats volume one" is a seminal documentary that inspired countless modern day filmmakers and make-up artists. Much like Tom Savini's classic story regarding "Man Of a Thousand Faces" Scream Greats volume one offered the same inspiration for so many of today's artisans. They are artists who are crafting and will craft our current and coming deluge of horror films. Savini (as a child) who was obsessed with the magic of movie make-up after seeing the motion picture Man Of A Thousand Faces (Starring James Cagney) continued to become one of the most influential figures in make-up history.

I was very much obsessed with horror movies and "monster make-up" when I was a child but when I watched "Scream Greats volume one" (for the first time) in 1986, I was hooked for life. I was ten years old and I couldn't wait until my birthday when I would receive a wooden make-up chest (shaped like a coffin) that was filled with various paints, latex, blood, and brushes. I wanted to be Tom Savini. He was and still is a total inspiration.

Now I'm making monster movies with heavy make-up and documentaries about inspired horror artists so I blame Mr Savini for this crazy stuff that haunts me every day. The struggle is worth it... I'm still obsessed.

Someone should re-publish this volume on DVD once again with a new doc attached that regards the many people who were inspired by the great George Romero and the one and only Tom Savini. I'd be more than happy to take part and pay proper tribute...

Regards,

Christopher P. Garetano
