Monsters | Creatures

Monsters and creatures are fantastical beings. They are part of our stories, our folklore and mythologies. The word monster derives from the word ‘monstrous’ which is used to describe something or someone as unnatural, horrifying, or evil. Monsters are non-human entities who have strange and mystical powers or characteristics. They come in all shapes and forms and live in all sorts of places -- some live underground or in the sea, but others live under your bed or in your wardrobe. Frankenstein’s Monster is a really famous monster, but he has always been misunderstood. He was just a little lonely.

What is a monster?

A monster can be defined as an imaginary creature that is generally large, ugly, and frightening. A monster is considered a horror creature, like Frankenstein or Dracula, that often appear in literature and films to scare audiences. Monsters are regarded as grotesque who scare others with their appearance, and threaten society with their powers. Monsters can also be human-like, but they are portrayed as lower class, mutants, and supernatural.

What do monsters look like?

Typical images of monsters include animals with no heads or exaggerated features. Monsters are often ugly, lurk in the dark, and do not look like anything else. Physically monsters sometimes have qualities like dwarfism, giantism, physical splicing with other creatures, extra or missing human features, or more elements that differentiates them completely from what society accepts as normal.

Why are we afraid of monsters?

Humans are afraid of monsters because they challenge society’s standards. We create monsters and they are often a reflection of ourselves. Monsters are also characteristically out of our control and do not follow rules or opinions. Monsters are not predictable and tend to be extremely violent. Also, since we do not know what to expect from monsters or easy to explain and our mind makes them scarier than they actually are.

The Mummy
Collection of illustrations of the Mummy in various horror postures with overall height measurements

The use of the character of a Mummy, an undead creature under wraps and bandages, originates from nineteenth century Britain when they were colonizing Egypt. Originally, the Mummy was a female portrayed love interest. It was not until 1932, when the romantic Mummy archetype was replaced with the monster Mummy by Boris Karloff’s movie The Mummy. Now joining the ranks of Dracula and Frankenstein’s monster, the Mummy has been seen as an antagonist in works of horror despite a slight revival of the romantic archetype towards the end of the twentieth century.

The Mummy, portrayed by Boris Karloff in The Mummy (1932), is 5 foot 11 inches (1.8 m) tall.

Vampira
Dimensioned drawings of Vampira posing in a variety of standing postures

Vampira is a campy creation of actress Maila Nurmi in the 1950s. Inspired by Mortica Addams, Nurmi created a spooky horror television host. On her show, The Vampira Show, Nurmi would introduce different horror films, feign speaking with spirits, and play with her pet spider, Rolo. The show aired from 1954 to 1955 exclusively in Los Angeles, but Vampira’s instantaneous success outlived the life of the show with her being featured in films past the cancellation of the show. The Vampira Show is now regarded as a cult classic and created fan clubs worldwide.

Vampira, created and portrayed by Maila Nurmi, is 5 foot 7 inches (1.70 m) tall.

Dementor
Series of scaled illustrations comparing the height of Dementor with other related Harry Potter characters

Dementors are large, floating, featureless beings that have no eyes and instead use their ‘mouth’ to sense those around them. Dementors are dark creatures. They feed on human emotions and suck every good feeling from nearby people. Get too close to a Dementor, and you will only remember the most terrible things that have happened to you.

Dementors can administer the Dementor’s ‘kiss’ and suck out a person’s soul, leaving them in a vegetative state for the rest of their life. A Patronus charm is one of the only spells effective at keeping Dementors at bay.

Dementors, designed by Rob Bliss, have heights of 9’10” (3 m).
