I agree; saw Lon Chaney at Trader Vic’s with a really freaky dude once.

You shouldn't talk about the wealthy that way.

Rosie O'Donnell. those fat, stubby, greasy, little fingers scare the god out of me and don't get me started on her voice. When I was young and watched the "Exorcist" alone at 9 years of age, I did not sleep for nights. When I was a few years older and watched "Exit to Eden" (Dana Delany, whom I found very attractive is naked for most of the movie) and saw Rosie wearing s&m gear and almost naked, jessus, I wanted so badly to suffer a bad blow to the head so that I could wipe that image out of my head. Dana was smoking though.....

TOB you are right, It has gotten boring of late. Seems like some aren't writing as much. A lot of stuff removed.

You're right there. What a freak out. An old lady that lives in a round thing (museum?) that is smaller than she is herself (with Rosacea and a Andy Warhol fright wig).

Boomarangtoomarangzoomarang. It doesn't get any scarier. I think it was gin blossoms, not rosacea. She seemed like a mean old drunk.

could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure the flying monkeys were not in Kansas?

Anyhow, my answer is Pennywise.

Pennywise, agreed. He's got to be the freakiest, probably worse because he went after kids.

I am like Jack Frost and his closet. Whatever lurks in my dark bedroom closet is the scariest monster. I cannot go to sleep at night if the closet doors aren't shut. The doors can't be open even a crack. It's been that way for as long as I can remember.

But if he had two claws everything would be okay.

The hand offers more dexterity. Two pairs of claws is easy to deal with. Just shut a door between you and him.

Not a monster (I don't think), but in the mid 70s, whenever there was a storm watch or warning on Channel 13, they'd put up this white background with a picture of a storm on the horizon with the word "WEATHER" across it in big letters...and this mechanical voice would come in to describe what/where the storm was. For some reason, that would always scare me to death. I will never forget that. They did it a lot during the summer.

With that list of supplies, you could get an early start on this year's Christmas wreath project!

The Mothman..... or Candyman.....or IT..... or the Killer Klowns from Outer space..... okay, I'm just a big baby so I guess anything given the right music and lighting will scare me. Oh and I still won't watch Paranormal Activity just for the fact that other people had nightmares from it.

0

Deja Coffin 3 years, 11 months ago

I'm with you there..... I am completely terrified of clowns. I won't even take my kids to the circus because I have such a fear of them.

oliveoyl 3 years, 11 months ago

As a kid the Imperial Walkers from The Empire Strikes Back used to creep me out for some reason. I used to have nightmares that they were chasing me.

The other one that would give me nightmares is Poltergeist. I hated that stupid clown, the tree, the ghost figures, the meat crawling on the counter and let's face it Robbie's teeth were scary as hell.

I still watch both of these movies every year!

Fred Phelps. Now that is a real monster!

Gene Wallace 3 years, 11 months ago

He was wrapped up in burial linen and walking around the Episcopal church as people were arriving yesterday, even walked up the steps to the front door. of the church. But, they disappeared before I could get across the intersection to "encounter" him. Maybe he was just preparing for last night's Zombie Walk.

Not sure if this applies to the ex-loveofyourlife but here ya go:

And Nesferatu. I just saw a picture in a book once when I was in grade school and couldn't get that image out of my mind...ever. Then I finally saw the film itself in high school. I probably shouldn't have.

Thet thing that H. P. Lovecraft came up with in the Dunwich Horror. Both the book and the movie creeped me out and nothing creeps me out. Nothing. Got a weird image from a trail camera stationed deep in the woods that I don't know what the hell it is though.

Was there any unusual scat in the area? That's how you can ID monsters.

Other than that one pile 8' across, nothing else suspicious.

Freddy, Jason, Michael, the Tall Man, Anthony Perkins, the thought of PeeWee Herman reproducing, and last, but not least...

the mystery meat from high school lunches...

Pendragons, I agree completely! For me, the most scary monster is my second ex-husband.
