Does that mean you never saw Ghostbusters 2 with the Staypuft Marshmallow Man?

Yeah but he wasn't a sweet we generally had around the house. The Kandy Man was my Mum's favourite Nor was he commanded by Shiela Hancock with pink hair

I rather liked Staypuft, though.


He seemed to be a cross between the Pillsbury Dough boy, the Michelin man, and in Donald Duck's outfit.

Those scare me witless. Any kind of haunting-type creature scares me actually.

I can deal with monsters (except for Stephen King monsters) easily but ghosty-types have me clutching the duvet over my head.

Re: What horror creatures creep you the Hell out?

I've realised that 70s style lounges -- just lounges -- freak me out a little bit. Those porcelain dogs on the mantle, the blankets over the backs of the chairs...I think it's because it reminds me of the poltergeist story I wrote about. Or just because...70s lounges, man. Weird places.

I think Stephen King scared an entire generation to the thought of clowns....

Or Miles and Flora in The Turn of the Screw (though Quint and Jessel are even more so); or Niles and Holland in Thomas Tryon's The Other... or several of Bradbury's earlier stories....

Re: What horror creatures creep you the Hell out?

Trees


When I was really little there was a show on tv, might have been called nightmares but it was a twilight zone/stand alone episodes type of series, I can't remember if it was a kids show or something I shouldn't have been watching, I moved towns when I was 7 so I was younger than that at least.

One episode a mean farmer clears trees to make room for his flowers or something like that, its all very hazy but in the end he is turned into a tree. I remember the special effects as he changed and that the idea of eternity as a tree in a dark forrest was more scary than any vampires, monsters or aliens.

Ugh, I hated when we came up against them in D&D. Who'd have thought beige dralon would be Armour Class -6?

For me, it's anything you can only see at the edge of your vision, and which disappears when you look straight at it. Especially in a wet wood at dusk. And which you think -- but can't be sure -- might be wearing a top hat.

Actually, the top hat alone might be reason for freaking out.

Re: What horror creatures creep you the Hell out?

I have to say vampires, after the scene in Salem's lot "I'll see you sleep like the dead, teacher"; the written one, not the film though. Partially because I read it in the middle of a dark insomniac night, in halls at uni, and then realised I only ever saw the security guard at night; horror into reality, I've never really got past that... Therapy, anyone?

That guard wasn't a vampire, Springs....


He was the ghost of Mr. George Hobbler McSpoffington the XXXXVIIII of Kent and he was looking for his favorite false teeth.
