With Boris Karloff having abandoned the genre for Broadway, the last of the cinema's great horror stars - Lon Chaney, Jr., Bela Lugosi and John Carradine - gathered together in 1956 to appear in what would be a final gesture to the classic fright films of the 1930s and 40s, a low budget effort, THE BLACK SLEEP.
Between them, these three icons had played Count Dracula, the Frankenstein Monster, the Mummy and The Wolf Man, as well as a collection of mad scientists and their victims.
Now, as this trio waits on the set to act out their brief, secondary roles, old resentments, personal frustrations and insecurities rise to surface, wreaking havoc on a troubled picture that is already behind schedule.
THE LAST MONSTERS is a probing look at the "dark," personal lives of three men who scared us as children and now remain in our nightmares.
4 men. 1 woman; single set.
