From King Kong to Avatar, from Star Wars to Lord of the Rings, movie creatures have never been as popular as they are today! Yet the art of creating monsters for the big screen is as old as cinema itself…

From early experiments with apes and dinosaurs to the birth of special make-up effects, from the pinnacle of animatronics to the digital revolution, Creature Designers: The Frankenstein Complex – co-directed by Gilles Penso and Alexandre Poncet, explores a century of human imagination, cinematic thrills and wonders.

Based on interviews of all the greatest artists in the genre and hours of exclusive footage from classics like Gremlins, The Abyss, Terminator 2, Jurassic Park, Starship Troopers, Spider-Man 2…., the documentary focuses on the stunning relationship between the creatures and their makers: like modern Frankensteins, special effects wizards create life out of raw material, art and complex machinery.

“An absorbing study of the evolution of a film-making niche” Andrew Pulver, The Guardian

“An unmissable celebration of the craft” 5 stars, Horror Channel
