MONSTERS THAT SCARE ME THE MOST

Thank you for having me on the blog today. I'm truly honored to be here with all of you! With the day of the dead approaching fast, let's have a look at some of the scariest movie monsters ever.

DOPPELGÄNGERS

A doppelgänger is a person's physical double. Seeing one's own doppelgänger often heralds death or serious illness. Paranormal investigators believe that the doppelgänger is an individual's past or future self. In some traditions, the double has no shadow or reflection.

Here are two seriously creepy horror movies about doppelgängers...




EVIL KIDS

There's something undeniably scary about children gone evil whether it's through vampirism ("Salem's Lot"), radioactivity ("The Children Of Ravensback"), aliens ("Village Of The Damned") or just plain insanity ("Devil Times Five", "We Need To Talk About Kevin”, "The Good Son").

The following are my favorite evil kids movies...

The Children Of Ravensback (1980): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8aJDLCFzo8


¿Quien puede matar a un niño? (aka Who Can Kill A Child?, aka Island Of The Damned)(1976): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-GQThxd3DE&feature=related


THE UNDEAD

As Jud Crandall says in Pet Sematary: « Sometimes dead is better. » Many close friends and family members have seen recently deceased people in their homes, but somehow these real-life encounters with the undead are never as scary as in the movies.


Let's Scare Jessica To Death (1971): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cX4eZD3GiL0

Louis' attempt to escape the police will take him on a journey into his own private hell where he is not only forced to confront his worst fears, but also to destroy the lives of those he cares about most.

Thanks for joining me today, Vanessa! I've been a fan of monster movies since I was a little kid. I have to say the alien in the Alien films is one of my favorites.

I think some of the scariest monsters are the creepy, evil children in books & film. Nothing innocent about them at all & that chills my blood.

I have to say that the most frightening scenarios is the evil child - just gives me the willies thinking about them. Maybe this comes from seeing The Bad Seed as a child LOL Thank you for sharing the spooky fun with us today.

When I first saw the question about monsters I immediately thought of Vampires (of course)! Though the monsters that scare me the most are the creepy children in scary movies... *shiver* & now that's what I am thinking about the most after reading this post, lol.
