What Makes Monsters Scary?

By Jireh Pak, 

Tribune Staff Writer

What makes a monster scary? A monster is a fictional character that is usually the bad guy. These creatures are sometimes described as hideous, humongous, or unintelligent. A zombie is an example of a monster and zombies are scary because zombies eat living, human brains! Vampires are blood-curdling because vampires suck your blood. These creatures will suck your body dry! Werewolves are terrifying because these wolves are human but turn into monsters when a full moon forms.Ghosts are also spooky because they are invisible and they can move objects.
