Well, Halloween's this month, so I guess I'll ask
What or who do you think is the lamest monster?

This can be any traditional/generic monster
-ex. mummies, werewolves, the bride of Frankenstein

a specific interpretation of a traditional monster
-ex. the gargoyles in Gargoyles, (yeah right, as if they could ever be lame), Angel in Buffy, the haunted house in Monster House

or any non traditional monster from a story, show, game, or movie
-ex. Crites from Critters, Graboids from Tremors, dare I say Killer Clowns from Outer Space

In contrast you can also name the awesomest monster(s), if there IS such a thing.


My gripe against the ghosts and undead types is that they can hurt you pretty easy, but you can't do much back. I suppose that's what makes them monstrous or scary, but still. Appearing and reappearing, levitating objects, turning into other creatures, increased strength...what is it about dying that gives people friggin' super powers? It's just not fair, is all. You'd think being alive would give you the advantage over the dead, but I digress.

I love all sorts of monsters for different reasons--mummies, werewolves, vampires, even zombies. If I do possess a particular gripe about them, it's the Hollywood brand of any...particularly vampires and werewolves. ESPECIALLY werewolves... what ever happened to the traditional chivalrous werewolf who became the companion of a king?

But I digress. As of the moment, I'm particularly facepalming at Twilight and Underworld werewolves and vampires. And J-horror ghosts.

I remember watching a B&W movie once of a woman being chased by a zombie, the zombie lurched forwards at a very slow pace while the woman ran away far screaming, but no matter how far she ran the zombie just lurched at it's dull pace right behind her.

I suppose my least favored monsters would be classic slow moving retarded zombies and whatever you find in the Twilight series.

However I like zombie that retain or pretend to have original human sense.

oks, i'm back!!!

Lamest monster?! too many to count!
but if i had to point one out, then it would have to be the Martians from War of the Worlds. granted that they did a ton of damage untill they realized "OH SHIT SON! WE ALLERGIC TO YOUR GERMS!!!" there are more that most of you have already pointed out like Torgo and Twilight "Vamps",and let's not get me started at now much i hate Twilight!!!

but my most favorite monsters are the Xenomorphs from Alien and the Cinibytes from the first 2 Hellraiser films. they still haunt me in my dreams till this day!

Any monster that sparkles is a lame monster.

Imagine a Godzilla made out of crystal-- he can curl up like a hedgehog and fly from planet to planet like a sparkling UFO christmas ornament. He rules!
