Sadly, today werewolves have sexy six packs, vampires twinkle in sunlight while statutory raping teens, and spiteful ghosts like to harass middle class couples in front of security cameras. Zombies win because they’re still zombies.
Weeping angels. I’m not even the Dr. Who fan in the house, but I take any opportunity to hang out with Spouse, so I’ve seen a lot of eps. The weeping angels – DON’T BLINK!! – frighten me more than any other movie, tv, or book horror monster. Not since I saw Halloween as a kid have I had nightmares after a horror movie… I’ve had multiple nightmares about the weeping angels! And I’m (arguably) a grown adult!! D O N ’ T B L I N K!
@Clumber The thing with the Weeping Angels that everyone seems to ignore: You could just close one eye for a few seconds, then open them both, then close the other eye for a few seconds while you get away.
@ThunderChicken Yes. The children. Kids are scary, but kids wandering the neighborhood in groups asking for protection money candy in exchange for not trashing your house. Halloween is obviously a Mafia plot to train their future Enforcers.
Spouse dressed couple years as Death in a hooded black gown with a black face mask he could see through but from the outside looked blank. Best part of the costume was the full length sycthe that belonged to a great great uncle who worked with the WPA in the Great Depression. Just wandered around our little town sneaking up behind people saying nothing.
