Manic Monday: Top 3 Creepy Creatures



Source: fanpop

I’ve lately discovered a passion for our new Top 3 section. That is why, on this Manic Monday, we send your adrenaline levels soaring with our Top 3 of the creepiest creatures to ever appear on the big or little scream. These are my personal favourites – or nightmares, depends on how you see it – but who would you pick? Let us know and have a jolly good start into this new week.


Top 3 Creepy Creatures

3. Pennywise the Dancing Clown from It (1990)

Now isn’t this the stuff nightmares are made off? Clowns are scary. End of discussion. I mean Pennywise is actually laughing on this picture and he has colourful balloons in his hand, but don’t tell me that if you happened to cross him in real life your first instinct wouldn’t be to flee asap.


2. Mrs. Ganush from Drag Me to Hell (2009)

This not-so-nice lady with her milky eye and the flying handkerchief is about the last person you want to meet in a parking lot in the middle of the night. Especially not after incurring her wrath just moments earlier. So respect the elderly and steer clear of parking lots after dark and you should hopefully be fine.


1.  The Pale Man from Pan’s Labyrinth (2006)

Guillermo Del Toro’s masterpiece of a dark, twisted fairytale brought forth the number one of my creepy creature list. I’m actually not exactly faint-hearted, especially not when it comes to movies, but I still remember sitting in the cinema hall with my heart racing as the Pale Man came to life. With his flabby, elastic skin, his grotesque, disjointed way of moving and the eyes where they aren’t supposed to be (first on a plate in front of him and then in his palms), the Pale Man makes one hideous sight. And the fact that he loves to devour little children or helpful little fairies leads to the assumption that his character is on par with his revolting exterior.
