AI makes retro monsters even more monstrous

In the past, classic horror creatures like the Gremlins and Nosferatu used to instil fear in us. Yet, as technology has advanced, we now tend to reminisce about these characters with a sense of nostalgia rather than fear.

With that in mind, AI has been used to resurrect the timeless horrors that once haunted our childhood and breathe new, terrifying life into them! In order to achieve this, the artificial intelligence technology was used to envision how these monsters might look if they were to chase us in today’s world.

Audrey II – The Little Shop Of Horrors (1960/1986)

A low-budget Audrey II first hit the silver screen in the sixties, but its the 1980s movie that took the story to its biggest success when a smash-hit musical was created based on a theatre production. Audrey II, an alien plant form arrives at a florist store during a total eclipse of the sun, and having been fed on blood by Seymore a geek who loves exotic plants – Audrey II goes on to eat human after human, including Audrey who the plant is named after. AI has given the big-mouthed monster a whole new scary look.


Nosferatu – Nosferatu (1922)

The 1922 adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Nosferatu, instilled fear in many, making them dread the creature that lurked in the shadows. While at that time the renowned Vampire looked quite menacing, now AI has awakened him from his eternal rest to evoke terror and snack on a new generation of individuals.


Stripe – Gremlins (1984)

Stripe, the gremlin leader from The First Batch, stands out as more powerful, menacing, and lethal than his fellow gremlins. While his original puppet design could often be more cute than creepy, anyone who encounters this modern redesign is bound to feel fear! In order to ensure that those who encounter him flee instead of seeking an autograph, AI has unveiled a revamped version of Stripe that is bound to give you nightmares!
