The Horror Honeys: Friday Favorites ~ Atypical Horror Monsters!

Friday Favorites ~ Atypical Horror Monsters!



Since the dawn of moviemaking, monsters have been tumbled forth from the depths of Hollywood to terrify us... you've got the Wolfman, Frankenstein, the Mummy, and Dracula... but not all monsters are conventional ones, and some of our favorites just don't fall into these classic monster categories. These monsters are by turns tortured in their own right, with mythical or mystical backstories and in some cases, they can even have a personality and character arc of their own - and in more than one instance, we become more attached to the creature than the lead character, but that's classified as a #horrorhoneyproblem.
