Horror fan colourises Universal Pictures classic creature features for these incredible images

You have never seen your favourite monster classics quite like this before.

Long before Freddy Kruger, Jason Voorhees, and Michael Myers slashed up the big screen, we had the Universal Monsters – a group of bad (but often well meaning) guys and girls that forever changed the face of the horror genre. Where would we be today if not for classic films like Frankenstein (1931), Dracula (1931), and The Wolf Man (1941)? It is hard to say, but we certainly wouldn't want to imagine a world without them.

The Universal Pictures creature features dominated the horror scene from the 1920s through the 1950s, and given the time in which they were made, most of that golden era output was of course released in black and white. But what if films like The Invisible Man (1933) and Bride Of Frankenstein (1935) were filmed in colour?

Enter, then, Goatboy. While we have no idea what his real name is, the horror fan and talented Photoshop artist recently took it upon himself to meticulously colourise the most beloved monster movies in the Universal Pictures oeuvre, and the results are stunning. Images that finally bring the classic monsters into the world of bright, vivid colour.
