What makes Movie Monsters terrifying? Is it their look? Or perhaps their complete lack of remorse and sanity? maybe their ability to invade your dreams for many, many months? Maybe it's all three?

Greetings, My name is somedude, and I am here to talk about and show you these six monsters that invaded my dreams when I was young. So let's get started huh?

Those Killer Klowns from Outer Space! From the 1988 movie of the same name!

Now I know what you're thinking, "You're kidding right?" No. No I'm not. See, I was deathly afraid of clowns because of an accident at a circus. LONG story. Anyways, I was afraid of this because they're Klowns, and they're killing people! That's reason enough! also, their horrible laughs, those snake-like Klowns in the toilet, and that giant Klown at the end. Plus, this movie put me off of cotton candy for life. If you've seen this movie, you know why.

That creepy-ass Tiki Man from the 1975 movie Trilogy of Terror.

I saw this when I was 12. It's been eight years since I've seen it, but to this day, I can still hear that Tiki Man's "Ai! Ai! Ai! Ai! Ai!" scream when he's running at his victims. Also, he freaked me out because he was tiny. so he could hide anywhere, and attack you anywhere. Plus, he's uglier then hell.

Those little Demons from the 1987 movie The Gate!

They're Demons. They're from Hell. They're small, which means, just like the Tiki Man, they can hide and attack you from anywhere. And they want to drag you TO Hell. Reasons enough to be scared.

Those lovely Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers: C.H.U.D. From the 1984 movie of the same name.

God, those guys seriously screwed me up when I was little. I saw it when I was still ten. It scared me because of three reasons: 1. Their look are the stuff of nightmares! 2. It was set in New York, and we lived in New York at the time. and 3. We had a sewer opening right in front of our house. Great. After seeing it, I didn't go out at night for months, cause I thought that one of them would grab me and pull me down into the sewer. (Shivers)

Those damn werewolves from the epic 1981 werewolf movie The Howling.

Let's see.... I was 10, and home alone. I wanted to watch something scary. That's when I spotted it: The Howling. I didn't see it yet, but I heard how scary it was. Of course, like any hard-headed kid, I thought it was all crap. I was thinking "Hmm, The Howling? Ohh scary!" I went in my living room, turned off all the lights and put it in. Let's say that wasn't the smartest of moves. When my parents came home, I was hiding under my covers screaming "The werewolves are coming to eat me!" I don't care what anyone says, those are one the most realistic and frightening Werewolvs. Ever.

And to end it all, the #1 Monster that made me crap my pants when I was young..

The "suave" Mr. Barlow from the 1979 Vamp. creepfest Salem's Lot!

You have NO idea how many times I've seen this ugly mug in my dreams. I saw it when I was 16, and when they finally showed his face, It was forever imprinted in my subconsious. Even now, when I am taking a walk at night, I get the feeling that he's right behind me, waiting to strike. Once you see his face, You will NEVER FORGET IT.
