Blog Chain: The Monster Mash

Today’s blog chain was started by Matt. He asks:

“Who is your favorite monster?”

I always liked watching scary movies, but can’t say I loved those monsters. But the monster who always creeped me out was The Rack from Buffy. That’s the dude who got Willow hooked on drugs. What freaked me out about him was that he was real as opposed to monster. Yes, he existed in some different realm, in an area that moved constantly and only those who needed the “magic” could find him, but he looked human. And, he was symbolic of a drug dealer. I always found “monsters” who could exist in our world far scarier than those like Freddy or Jason.

    LOL ditto to what Michelle said. And yes, those real monsters are the most terrifying.

    Great choice. You are so right that real people are scarier than monsters. It’s frightening to imagine what real people do to others. It brings horror home in a real way. Nice post!

    Awesome answer. And I completely agree. There are people out there in this world scarier than any make-believe monster.
