We here at HorrorAddicts.net have decided to celebrate those things real or imaginary that creep into the back of your mind and hang in your dreams. The beast in the forest, the rattling thing under the bed, the scratcher at the window. Creatures, behemoths, demons, and denizens of the dark are our subject for this month!
To get us started today, we asked some of our staff to give us an idea of what MONSTERS scare them.
Here are just a few:
- Emerian Rich , Creator/Owner/Publisher/Hostess of all things HorrorAddicts:
“Banshees scare me the most. I don’t know if it has to do with a video game I played a few years ago that I couldn’t get past the scary banshee girl or if it’s the thought of something standing in my path, screeching so loud and horribly that I can’t concentrate to figure out a way out. They also seem scarier than ghosts and like they might be made of ice and might be able to suck out your soul, like the Dementors do on Harry Potter. They freak me out!”
- R.L. Merrill, Merrill’s Musical Musings and Ro’s Recs Blogger:
“I know it’s silly but zombies scare the shit out of me. The thought of slowly being eaten alive terrifies me!”
- Lionel Ray Green, The Bigfoot Files Blogger:
“Inbred redneck hillbilly cannibals in the woods scare me. There’s just something about their horrendous killing methods and reckless abandon on unsuspecting folks that’s just so terrifying. I think they horrify me the most because they’re humans, and and they could be out there.”
We will share more as the Monster Madness continues, but we would love to hear from you! Tell us about your monster fears in the comments below.
