How to Make a Monster is a beloved piece of 1950s horror schlock from legendary B movie producer Samuel Z. Arkoff (The Amazing Colossal Man, The Last Man on Earth, The Abominable Doctor Phibes, For God's Sake Get Out, The Island of Doctor Moreau)and his cheese factory American International Pictures. Makeup man Pete Dumont (Robert H. Harris, Peyton Place, Valley of the Dolls, The Man in the Glass Booth), the new owners are taking over the studio that Pete works for (American International). Monster makeup man Pete is given the pink slip, as they no longer need his services, because monster movies are out and musicals are in! The egotistical studio executives treat Pete with heartless abandonment and Harris excels in his role as the psychotic Pete Dumont. He begins to lose his mind, and becomes a homicidal maniac as he methodically kills all who are in his way, one by one and does so with the aid of his mesmerizing makeup.moreless
