So…it is pretty obvious by now that I have no intentions of completing the Monster 50 in the amount of detail that I originally set out with. This is unfortunate but most likely inevitable, when looking at my sketchy history of blogging. However, I do not want to leave my audience in perpetual suspense regarding who, or what, the remaining monsters were.
Therefore, I present a list of the remaining monsters in all their unadorned glory.
Krang, the pink jelly-like alien from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Mothra, the giant moth that is sometimes foil and other times partner of Godzilla. Special nod to the two lovable tiny twins that are the heralds of Mothra (Love that catchy song of theirs).
The Hulk, a monster and hero.
The Thing, a monster and hero, and a great best friend.
Davey Jones, from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. A monster with a heart, just not in the place you expect.
Edward Scissorhands, from a beautiful fairy tale of a movie by Tim Burton.
The Headless Horseman, pretty much all iterations are good, but always imagine him as a headless Christopher Walken for some reason.
The Zombie, the slow kind.
Ring Wraiths, from Lord of the Rings trilogy. Those are some creepy dudes.
Balrog, just ask Gandalf.
Weeping Angels, from Dr. Who lore. Don’t blink.
King Kong, the 8th wonder of the world. Poor guy.
Jaws. The shark, not the Bond villain (but he is an honorable mention).
The Predator, such a cool concept it could only come from the Eighties.
The Bride of Frankenstein, making such an impact with so little screen time.
The Phantom of the Opera, Lon Cheney version over Andrew Loyd Weber, but there is room for both.
Gremlins, never feed them after midnight, Central Standard Time.
Crites, from the Critter movies. A more prickly kind of gremlin from outer space.
Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde, which is the monster?
