How did monsters come out of our thoughts and into our culture? A multi-billion-dollar movie business is based on good looking heroes in tights who save our world against mega-baddies. Are the villains a metaphor for the personality-altering power money and attention provides? Monsters replace people because we really can’t, or want to believe that Humans could actually do immeasurable physical or emotional harm to each other? Halloween is a family fav. A celebration of monsters is not fun, for me.
