May Monster Madness #7

e250e-mmm2013

Thanks again to AnnieEmma, and Ked for hosting this very cool and fun blog hop.  Today is the final day of May Monster Madness.

Also, want to add a disclaimer about the photos I have used this week in the posts. They are all either from wikipedia or fanpop.

I figured I would write about the one character that scares me more than most and that is the clown from IT. I read the book and then tried to watch the movie which I couldn’t do. Even to this day I haven’t watched the movie all the way to the end. There is just something about an evil clown and especially the way Stephen King writes the character that truly scares me. I guess that’s the point of the book and movie. The funny thing is that this book is the one that turned me onto reading, watching, and writing horror.

He was as nasty as they come. He was considered to be Dracula. As the prince of Wallachia in 14th century Romania, he saw that thousands of people were killed by being impaled.

The Lizard Man of South Carolina

e250e-mmm2013

 

The links to other blogs can be found at Annie’s page. For today’s  post I decided to write about a monster that is known around South Carolina. It’s the Lizard Man.

The description varies from witness to witness. The Lizard Man is reported to be 7 feet tall with 3 toes on each foot, 3 fingers on each hand. Covered with scaly like skin as well as dark hair all over its body. It is said that it can do damage to a car.  The show Fact or Faked  has even done a segment on it. Whether he is real or not remains to be seen. He’s kind of like Bigfoot maybe we’ll never know for sure if either of them exist but it’s fun to hear about and read about the sightings of either of them.

Sightings have happened all over the midlands and low country of South Carolina for years. One particular area with most sightings is a place called Scape Ore Swamp. Oreswamp

Monsters on TV

e250e-mmm2013

Thanks to Annie , Emma, and Ked for hosting this fun blog hop. The following are my three favorite shows.

spn4

My favorite show is SUPERNATURAL. One thing I like about the show is we see anything from angels and demons, vampires and witches. Bloody Mary has even made an appearance as well as evil clowns.  A good site to go to for info on the show is Supernatural Wiki. There have been monsters on the show I had never even heard of like a Wendigo 

to a Shtriga

My next favorite show is True Blood. I love reading the books that the show is based on. The show is great in that it sticks close to the premise of the books.

Grimm is one of my favorites as well.  I love the fact it plays on the fairy tale type of monsters.

I also have other favorites like X-Files, Twilight Zone, and Tales from the Crypt. I haven’t seen The Walking Dead yet but it is on my list of new shows to watch.
