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.

Dracula
Drawings with labeled height of Dracula in poses ranging from the front, side, and with an open cape

Dracula, a vampire spawned from the imagination of Bram Stoker and the namesake of his 1897 novel, is the most iconic vampire of all time. The story of Dracula and some of his key characteristics became the basis for a whole genre of literature and films to come. Dracula is a vampire that lives Transylvania, but moves to England to partake in his favorite activity of blood sucking and spreading the undead curse. Once in England, however, he is hunted by a group of men and women led by Professor Abraham Van Helsing. Dracula is the basis for Nosferatu, an illegal adaptation of the story due to violations of copyright laws that the studio tried to avoid by slightly altering the story.

Dracula is popularly depicted at 6 foot 4 inches (1.93 m) tall, but was originally portrayed by Bela Lugosi in Dracula (1931) at 6 foot 1 inch (1.85 m) tall.
