As any lover of horror will tell you, picking a short list of favorite monsters is no easy feat. The most classic movie monsters are those with an element of tragedy; the ones who evoke empathy as well as horror. While I love the classics and admire the craft required to create a sympathetic monster, I don't know that I can call them my favorites.
Kittens, if you love horror movies, take a look at my guest post this week over on Anti-Film School's 3rd Annual Halloween Horror Movie Spooktacular on my five favorite monsters of horror! Let me know in the comments who you would pick - I fully expect an argument on at least one of them. (Oh, and if you like the Spooktacular art, it is all done via Pixlr, which is a great free online photo editing software - currently offering Halloween effects.)
Stay tuned to TYoH tonight for Anti-Film School's pick for their Top 5 Legendary Horror Hosts, and tomorrow for the top 10 Halloween costumes for 2013, plus DIY tutorials and a giant gallery of the best costumes of the year!
