Whew. I am finally back home from my adventures.
I've been thinking about my next projects, and what I want to build. I have a few designs lined up, but something occurred to me and made me curious.
I want to make monsters..... and Halloween, while pretty far away, is coming. In order to be ready, I should start exploring the scary monster factors that I want to create.
What monsters or creatures scare you? WHY do they scare you? Are they mostly human? Are they completely unrecognizable? Do they move in an odd manner? Is it the sharp teeth, and scary claws, or is it the knife in his hand? Does it have pupils, or is it blind, or does it even have eyes at all? Is it symmetrical? Does it have a name? Is it from something we've seen before, or is it one of your personal nightmares?
I want to figure out what would be popular, but also interesting. What qualifies something as horror? Blood? Missing parts? The creature itself, or the props it has?
I want to dissect what makes a monster scary. What makes you run up the basement stairs a little faster towards the end?
