Top 5 Scary Halloween Monsters
September 21, 2011
Halloween is one of those holidays that you can talk about all year round. Halloween 2011 is closing in fast, so let's just dive right in with some fun Halloween chatter.
Here's a list of the Top 5 Scary Halloween Monsters (in my opinion). If you disagree, please feel free to submit your own mini-list in the comments section below.
Counting down to #1:
5. Zombies (of any kind)
Zombies can vary in looks. Certainly the more gruesome ones can be considered scarier. But for me, the real fear factor here is that they are just mindless moving creatures bent on one purpose: to eat you. Sure, you likely will become a zombie yourself after it's all said and done, but the fear of having to outrun an opponent which will continue pursuing you regardless of loss of limb is a bit unnerving.
Yes, I know these are 3 different things, but they all have one disturbing trait in common: they are small. I don't know what it is about smaller monsters, maybe something to do with the fact that they look like they should be harmless, but then they start stabbing you . . .. Just think of Chuckie from the Child's Play movies and you'll know what I mean. Scary things come in small packages.
3. China Dolls
Continuing with the theme of small but very scary monsters, the China Doll is a scary Halloween monster if there ever was one. Again, seems like it shouldn't be a problem, but when you visit Grandma's and she has all those dolls piled up in the room you sleep in and they just sit there staring at you while you try to sleep, it's just a little freaky. Plus, they wear you down with their sheer numbers.
2. Demon Dog/Animal
Taking something people generally like, dogs, and then making it into some twisted creature puts this near the top of my list. The sight of an animal that's been maligned somehow is upsetting on its own, but then to have the creature chase after you just sends shivers down my spine. Worse yet, imagine it was your own canine or feline best friend? Now it's scary and sad.
1. Clowns (IT)
Clowns are the scariest Halloween monster there is. Because they are not supposed to be scary in any way. They are just the opposite, fun and bright characters. But of all the monsters on my list which aren't normally monsters, the clown is the scariest because it already looked pretty freaky to begin with. There's something twisted about their appearance just from white makeup and red hair.
There you go! The Top 5 Scary Halloween Monsters. Again, if you disagree, just tell me what your Top 5 Scary Halloween Monsters are in the comments.
