The United Monster Talent Agency


I am late to the game on this one, but delighted I found it in time for Halloween. From KNB makeup effects maestro Greg Nicotero comes The United Monster Talent Agency; a short film love letter to all the classic horror movie monster of yore. Presented as an old-timey newsreel, all the familiar faces are here, from Dracula to Frankenstein's Monster to the Creature From The Black Lagoon, and some familiar non-monsters too, including the gleeful Eli Roth, Frank Darabont and Robert Rodriguez. 

I only just heard about this film while watching the fascinating documentary Nightmare Factory (essentially a biography of Greg Nicotero), which also deserves ample viewing, but for now, in the spirit of the season, sit back and have a giggle and a smile with The United Monster Talent Agency.
