Creatures making their spooky podcast feature!

The spirit of Halloween is upon us once again and for this year’s bone-chilling episode we wanted to celebrate our favourite creatures in cinema! So join Tuong La and his Ghastly Ghouls Angus MacDonald, Sarah MacDonald, and Samantha Leggatt as they lock themselves in a haunted house and won’t emerge until they come up with a list of Top 5 Movie Monsters!

Ground Rules

  • Monsters have to come from a movie (s). No TV, books, games, etc.
  • You can nominate a group of monsters as one nomination if the nomination makes more sense that way (ie. Gremlins instead of just Stripe)
  • Monsters DON’T have to be all evil or scary to be on this list. They just need to play the role of “monster” in the film.
  • Therefore noms don’t have to come from the “horror” genre.
  • Not all aliens are monsters
  • Humans aren’t monsters. If they are possessed by ghosts or demon then its the ghost or the demon that is the monster.
  • None of this “We were the monster in this entire time” or “The monster lives in all of us”
  • Zombies are monsters but….boring.
