Favorite Halloween Monster?

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays of the year.  I remember from the original (and horribly dated now) Beauty and the Beast when Vincent said that Halloween was when “the walls between the worlds grow thin and spirits roam the Earth.”  The holiday is delightfully spooky with ghosts, spiderwebs, and other ghoulish things.

My local Thai restaurant had bobbing ghosts in the entry way–cloth draped over balloons.  Simple and very effective.  There’s also a house down the street with a giant inflatable dragon.

My favorite ghoul of the season is the skeleton.  There’s something really fun about skeletons.  The image below reminded me of a Buck Rogers second season episode where Mark Lenard was an alien being who could remove his head.

What’s your favorite Halloween ghoul?

    Skeletons are cool.
    My favorite creepy ghoul was Christopher Walken as the Headless Horseman in Sleepy Hollow. The yellow eyes, and jagged teeth. But the whole movie was just the right influence for Halloween. And reminded me of when I was a kid, reading the story.
