Isn’t it weird that we pay money to get ourselves frightened?

Oh well!

Wikipedia considers curiosity as an emotion that drives humans to seek further knowledge.


Since humans are highly-emotional beings, they just can’t resist the temptation to see if the movie is plain scary or super duper scary.

What do you think?

When we were kids (yes, I am pointing at you – those who were born before the year 2000), we’ve been haunted by the images of classic movie monsters we saw in movies.

Don’t deny it!

You might have peed on the bed or screamed in the middle of the night because the moomoos scared the hell out of ‘ya in your nightmares!

So which movie monsters deserve to be on our list today?

Let’s find out!


1. Zombies


They’re many! They’re slow. They’re disintegrating. They’re already rotting but all they want is your body because they find humans oh so yummy. Blame Night of the Living Dead (1968) and Dawn of the Dead (1978) for making zombies a mainstay in horror flicks.


2. Chucky


If the fact that Chucky’s a living doll isn’t scary enough, wait ’til you see him all berserk and homicidal! No Chucky! I don’t wanna play with ‘ya!



3. Alien


H. R. Giger’s alien is perhaps the most yucky and scary of them all! Its body fluids are highly acidic, it can melt through metal. That’s not all. These aliens can incubate inside your body and pop out from your chest! Talk about ewww!

Born: February 5, 1940

You will always be in the hearts of alien fanatics forevah!


4. Jason Vorhees


Jason Voorhees was just an ordinary bloke who later transformed into a scary serial killer! He is known for making a simple hockey goalie mask into a scary Halloween costume. As if one Jason Vorhees movie wasn’t enough. They made a total of 12!


5. Freddie Kruger


Freddie has a unique skill in his resume. He is capable of killing you in your dreams! Include his dreaded fashion ensemble of striped jumper, hat and sharp claws, Freddie couldn’t get much scarier! Try not to sleep!


6. Nosferatu

Nosferatu is capable of scaring you by just using his shadow! Want proof?


What’s so super scary about him? He’s just plain creepy! He also sucks blood.


7. Werewolves

They may look like ordinary men but wait ’til the full moon comes in full bloom! You’ll be getting loads of howling. And if you get bit by them, you’ll be part of their team in no time!


Oh well! I wouldn’t mind if the werewolf was Micheal Jackson.


8. Dracula


He loves blood! Not just any kind of blood. He loves YOUR BLOOD! He is also charming and sophisticated. No wonder it’s easy for him to drain the life out of beautiful young girls.


9. Frankenstein


Although he is not homicidal in nature, compared to Jason Vorhees and Chucky, the fact that he’s made up of body parts from various persons is freaky enough.


10. Godzilla


Godzilla is a daikaiju that was conceptualized by Tomoyuki Tanaka, Ishiro Honda and Eiji Tsubaraya. He’s big. He’s bad. He’s gonna destroy your city if he’s mad!
