The Ultimate Horror Monster

I've been waiting to publish this for a while, saved it for a rainy day... I haven't been much for writing recently (ill) but I wanted to update the blog with something and hopefully it gets some hits. It also helps that Halloween is just around the corner.

I won't be featuring any of those weak, punk ass goblins. I've narrowed this list down to just a few.

  1. Michael Myers
  2. Jason Voorhees
  3. Freddy Krueger
  4. The Leprechaun
  5. Leatherface
  6. Chuckie


These are the ultimate horror monsters. They're the most notable, recognizable names in the industry of gore. Of this list, only one character is slightly based on a real life individual, however, not many connections can be made between the two, so the aspect of realism is still slightly skewed and won't play much of a factor in this decision. 4 of the characters are real-world characters, using very little supernatural prowess in their roles. Myers and Leatherface are the only characters not overly exaggerated in order to make them more horrifying.

The first of my eliminations from this list is Chuckie. A killer doll from a transplant by mind and that bleeds the blood of the human whom possesses his body by telekinesis? The scare factor is there for children... but Chuckie isn't frightening or bad ass enough.

Next elimination is The Leprechaun. My Irish blood contributed to my belief of this horrid individual. To take a creature which isn't horrifying, and make him killer of anyone who possesses a piece of his gold? The plot was terrific. However he's a Leprechaun who can appear where and when he wants... yet good luck charms prove to be his kryptonite? Don't abandon the laws of Irish lore.

My third elimination is Jason Voorhees. The monster of Camp Crystal Lake is the all-time body count champion of horror films. Yet my problem is with his supernatural abilities. I dislike the fact that he's a zombie who cannot drown yet cannot swim... but when cast back into the water, panics and drowns. I also dislike the fact that while he's able to return film after film, it also takes him years to make his return, and his ability to regenerate is as absurd an ability as a horror monster can have.

My next elimination is Leatherface. While terrifying, the shock-horror lacks in a very big way. The fact that it could be real almost outweighs that. But we're going to eliminate him based on the fact that it was more of a gore-based action film rather than the typical horror-based potential it could have had.

So the final comes down to Freddy Krueger (perhaps the most supernatural and silly of all horror-film characters) vs. Michael Myers. And the final elimination is...


Freddy Krueger! While Freddy easily could be argued as the most frightening character in horror of all time, the very moniker of killing people in their dreams and them dying the same way in the real world, really dampens the aspect of him being a truly frightening character. Granted, the fact that his targets were adult really gives him a boost... Freddy has scared people of all ages out of falling asleep due to the fear of his kills coming true.


Michael Myers wins this contest because he's simply a human being with an extremely high tolerance to pain. He's a certified loon who, as a kid, murdered his sister on Halloween. He eventually breaks out of the ward with a very ingenious plan, and slaughters his way towards his sister, using brute strength, malicious intent, and a brilliant mind to torture everyone in his path. He's shot, blown up, etc. on his way, but all it does it create a stumble for the man who will eventually make his way back. Besides, it's awesome that he wears that pale mask leaving his eyes exposed so that his victims can see the evil behind an expressionless face.

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

Mock Royal Rumble 2017

I do not have any insider knowledge about surprise entrants into the Royal Rumble. As of me writing this, I believe there are only 22 confirmed participants for the Rumble. I also do not have any insider information about the order of the entrants, or the winner. I am just putting together a mock I think makes sense + what I would personally like to see accomplished in the match. 1. Sami Zayn - Zayn will be the Iron Man in this year's Rumble, building onto his Daniel Bryan-esque push of late with Stephanie making his life more difficult than it has to be for no apparent reason. 2. Chris Jericho - Iron Man #2. I expect both of these guys to go the distance in this year's Rumble, and Jericho's as good as any for spurts of offense in a long match. 3. Big E - We have to add some size early to immediately slow down Zayn & Jericho. In recent years, the first 10 spots in the Rumble have entered and been eliminated quickly, and we haven't seen the ring fill up unt

Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016

Before we begin, these are strictly my opinion for what entertains me. I would love to hear anyone's opinion on my list, along with what their list is for the 2016 calendar year. I am not focusing strictly on the WWE, and this list will not be strictly singles matches. I also have not watched every match from every company, so if I'm missing something you believe is clear cut, there may be a chance that I did not see the match. Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016 2016 was a very incredible year for professional wrestling, in mainstream promotions like WWE and New Japan Pro Wrestling, to independent promotions like EVOLVE and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. British professional wrestling promotions Revolution Pro Wrestling and newly formed What Culture Pro Wrestling have been a refreshing spark in the European scene and have since seen prominence in WWE's Cruiserweight Classic (CWC) and upcoming United Kingdom Championship Tournament. See the list after the break.
