I was playing catch-up and came across The Eagle’s Aerial Perspective post on “What Was Your Childhood Monster?: A Blogfest.”
Golden Eagle mentioned that Gollum freaked her out. A number of commenters agreed. I have to admit Gollum – at least as portrayed in the movies – was pretty creepy. I would’ve had nightmares if I’d seen Lord of the Rings as a kid. But I have to go way back to the winged monkeys in The Wizard of Oz to find the monsters that made me inspect the closet and under the bed when I was young. When WoO was on television, I’d hide behind a chair whenever those creatures were on the screen.
What about you, dear readers? What monsters are under your bed?
