What monsters should die? What monsters should we shed more light on?

Post by Ashs_lil_deadite » Sun Mar 19, 2017 11:34 am

As we all know when it comes to movie monsters there are some that are overplayed and some that are overshadowed. I have composed a list of what I think.

Should Die (as a sub genre)
[*]ZOMBIES- They have been popularized for way too many years. Since around 2004 and still going! Overkill?\
[*]Killer Kids
[*]Possesions
What we need to see more of
[*]The Djinn- A bad ass Genie? That is awesome! I am a fan of the Wishmasters, the concept is awesome.

If you havent seen Under the Shadow yet, definitely check it out.

I dont really agree with not using certain monsters anymore, but I do think certain ones like you mentioned need to be more creative when they are used. We have way too many Exorcism of XXXXXX movies out there and most of them are essentially the same movie. I dont want to say no to possession movies completely though, because he have gotten some decent ones like Conjuring and others mixed in there.

When it comes to zombies... they should never die.. just be used wisely. ;)

I get it though..

Let's leave vampires alone for a while. :|

Definitely agree about the Djinn - I read about them in a book by Rosemary Ellen Guiley in connection with the shadow people and thought "why the hell have I never heard of these things before?!"

I also wouldn't mind seeing more werewolf movies - I used to love werewolves when I was a kid and haven't seen many decent ones as of late...

I agree with the Werewolves to and extent. Most of my problem with them is they rely too heavy on CGI. Not only that if I watch a werewolf movie I kinda want a Wolf Man type deal. Just me?

I can't get enough zombie movies. I love em all. Keep em coming.

I agree on the exorcism movies. Let's give those a rest for a while. And vampires could use a break too.

I'd like to see more historical/period horror movies. Like a GOOD Jack the Ripper film or something like that. I'm really looking forward to the H.H. Holmes movie.

I liked the wish master series myself. I used to get vey annoyed though that the obvious things said at the end of the movie to get rid of the jinn weren't immediately said at the start!

I'm tired of demonic possession and zombies. I love zombie films, but very rarely do any of them have any atmosphere and suspense now. I will say the same about demonic possession, most are exactly the same and fail to build the atmosphere. I would like to see more see more regarding ghosts or haunted objects as long as it isn't a haunted doll like chucky directly attacking people.

I'm creating a new style of monster in my new feature! :) Given life from selfie and social media culture! :P
