While I am away, unplugged from the world to write my novel, you will all have to be satisfied with a video list of 10 terrifying monsters in literature. The #1 monster is the one who shaped my obsession with these creatures of the unknown. As a young child, I used to fear that if I walked past a mirror the Jabberwocky would reach out and pull me into the realm of his Wonderland. The Jabberwocky’s version of Wonderland was much darker than Alice’s version in my imagination. Needless to say that to this day I still have a little fear around mirrors…
I would like to point out that I argue #8 should be #2, just because the Wendigo has to be my favorite monster in existence and the current antagonist of my novels. 😉
GREAT post in anticipation of your hiatus. Will watch this again for fun!

That Wendigo thing is grim! It beats Balrog!
And they forgot Jeepers Creepers! “Every 23 Spring for 23 days it feeds.”
Ugh, I forgot about ‘Jeepers Creepers’ myself. I love that one too,
The Wendigo has been the creature that I have always obsessed over (after the Jabberwock). The Balrog is an interesting demon-monster. I thought he was pretty cool in t LOTR.
