QQQE for this prompt and boy did it come at an opportune time since I had absolutely nothing for today. Now, thanks to Matt, we have monsters. Here are a few of my favorites:
Alien/Aliens: Just imagine for one moment you've stepped into the midst of an egg field and you hear that icky gooey noise as another egg slides out of the massive mother alien. The walls rustle like a thousand snakes and you're suddenly surrounded by horrifying aliens with nasty little heads that dart out of their mouths. My favorite line? When Ripley says, "You can't hep them. They're already being cocooned."
The Thing: what could be more insidious than a creature who can imitate anything? You wouldn't even know who it was - until it was too late.
The Walking Dead: What can I say? I love zombies well done :)
HP: the dementors. What a perfect and awful monster to invent, something that just sucks all the joy and happiness from you.
Hyperion: The Shrike. Just the name is enough to give you an idea of how unpleasant it might be to meet. Think sharp.
So who/what are some of your favorite monsters?
