Horror Film Hubbub With Lucan

In many ways, Boris Karloff's name embodies all that the horror genre of his times has to offer, and rightfully so. He is best remembered for his performance as the Frankenstein Monster, but he also played a Dr. Frankenstein-like scientist who revives the monster in "House of Frankenstein" and later, a descendant of Dr. Frankenstein in the 1958 film, "Frankenstein 1970". He also portrayed another equally infamous physician in "Abbott & Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde". And no one can forget his interpetation of "The Mummy". But, in this Vampire's opinion, his absolute best, most incredible performance, was his wonderful narration of the animated classic, "How The Grinch Stole Christmas".
