Welcome to Horror Monster's WikiEdit

Horror Monsters Wiki is an encyclopedia about everything related to monsters. The wiki format allows anyone to create or edit any article, so we can all work together to create a database for the fans of Horror monsters, and you can create your OWN!

IntroductionEdit

We are exploring the dynamics of horror in various disciplines and cultures, ancient to contemporary, with special attention to monsters as cultural dark-side manifestations. What does a particular culture label as "monstrous" and why? What makes a successful monster in a given culture at a given time? What exactly have certain authors and filmmakers captured (or unleashed)? Towards answering such questions, we are exploring myth, literature, pop culture, and film, with particular attention to the most successful monsters in Western culture: vampires, werewolves, the Frankenstein monster, mummies, etc. In the process, we find ourselves questioning the objectivity of paleontology, suggesting original cures for lycanthropy, ruminating about Frankenberry cereal, and deducing what's next.
