Best Halloween Monsters


The Top Ten

1 Werewolf Werewolf A werewolf or lycanthrope is a mythological or folkloric human with the ability to shapeshift into a wolf or a therianthropic hybrid wolf-like creature, either purposely or after being placed under a curse or affliction.

Especially when Michael Jackson had transformed himself into a werewolf in his "Thriller" music video. I love it!

They are badass

Werewolves are awesome. If they were real, they would be (realistically and accurately) carnivorous canine-looking (hominid) apes instead of canines (as it's not possible for a group of animal to turn into another, for example, kangaroo turning into an elephant, which makes no sense). Anyway, werewolves should be gentle and friendly towards salient species, including humans, and only hunt non-sapient species like deer, etc. - DinoLover4242

The most ICONIC costume ever is just as AWESOME as the music video and especially Michael Jackson himself.

It’s both hip and scary!

12 Devils
13 Scarecrow

Scarecrows definitely are great Halloween monsters because they look like jacks except I don't really like the idea that they're plants!

Something weird about them

14 Vampire

A real vampire, not a (shudder) sparkly one! To think vampires used to be so cool, until they were ruined. Sigh.

I so agree with you!

Vamps are awersome

42 Chucky Chucky Charles Lee Ray is a fictional character and the titular antagonist of the Child's Play horror film series.

chucky is a little smart thing I think he should be in the top ten. I don't no y chucky likes to kill people to try to get a child and the parents don't believe their children when they chucky is evil or he is trying to kill dem.

Chucky is the scariest thing ever I'm in middle school and I'm still scared of him :(

I short so this would work. - booklover1

Why does my cousin have a chucky doll? 😐

43 Medusa's Stone 'Art'

In my opinion, Medusa is scary, but if you're trying to go for a matching costume, you could go for Medusa and some of Medusa's stone 'art'. Medusa's stone art is scary if you get the right makeup and outfit. The perfect costume for last minute costumes.

44 Poltergeist
45 No-Face
46 Slenderman

Slenderman is like one of the scariest beings of all time...those tentacles...

47 Undead Bridesmaid

This creepy girl sadly died before having the chance to even be a bridesmaid but on the big day she gets out of her coffin and still wearing her dress comes out like a zombie and joins the wedding
