eSpotlight - Monsters and Creatures and Zombies, Oh My!
"Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win."
— Stephen King
Autumn is my favorite season for a number of reasons. I love the cooler weather and changing leaves, but I also really enjoy Halloween. It's the one time of the year I can easily indulge my love of books and movies about monsters. Starting October 1, I load up my reading list and movie queue with monster classics. While I do appreciate modern monster movie special effects, I have a special place in my heart for monsters created with stop motion animation and actors in 200-pound Godzilla suits destroying miniature city models. If the movie is in black and white, it gets bonus points from me. If the audio and video tracks are a bit out of sync, that's even better!
