How to Make a Monster (1958) Poster

Robert H. Harris: Pete Dumond


  • Pete Dumond : [Trying to justify horror films]  Why, even psychiatrists say that in all these monster pictures there's not only entertainment, but for some people there's therapy. Well, you know, we never get over our childhood fears of the sinister - those terrifying faces we see in our nightmares. Well, through these pictures we can live out our hidden fears. It helps.

  • Jeffrey Clayton : [Surprised that Pete has declined severance pay]  Turn down money? Maybe you've been living too long with these monsters!

    Pete Dumond : Sometimes I find them better company than humans.

  • Pete Dumond : Just remember, an artist must have no fear. Why, a creation is almost a sacred thing - all creations! The Good Lord created saints, and he also created sinners. He created the lamb and the fawn, but He also created the wolf and the jackal. Who can judge which is the most praiseworthy?

  • Larry Drake : [Looking at the horrific heads on the walls]  What are those?

    Pete Dumond : My family... my children!
