Horror's Top 13 Craziest Monsters

Audrey II- Little Shop of Horrors
"I'm a Mean, Green Mother from Outer Space!" Oh, how true is that song?! As a musical number featured in Little Shop of Horrors, "Mean, Green Mother" is the perfect description of Audrey II. And for those who need a refresher, Audrey II is an alien life-form who appears as a huge Venus Fly Trap voiced by Levi Stubbs of The Four Tops in the film adaptation of the musical. Rick Moranis plays Seymour, the nerdy flower shop worker who finds himself feeding Audrey II blood... and eventually human flesh! Audrey II is flamboyant, outrageous and bloodthirsty! Who could ask for anything more?

Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers. Beings that were once human but now live below the streets of New York and feed on the homeless living there as well. Funny how this all happened right around the whole "Clean Up New York" campaign. Maybe Mayor Giuliani had some C.H.U.D.s on the payroll. Anyway, as will happen, the homeless population started to run sparse, and the C.H.U.D.s began coming topside to feast on the unsuspecting citizens of NYC. Isn't that a kick in the ass? As you would expect with a character as entertaining as this, C.H.U.D. is a cult classic with mentions everywhere from "The Simpsons" to "Archer" to Clerks 2 and even kids' shows like "Phineas and Ferb." Hell, The Misfits even sported a drummer called Dr. C.H.U.D. (he and Dr. Gash actually went to the same medical school). C.H.U.D.s must go down as one of the craziest, and most beloved, characters of all time!

We hope you enjoyed our Top 13 Craziest Monsters in horror, and, by all means, please check out Grabbers, which is available online now!

Helmed by Jon Wright and penned by Kevin Lehane, the creature feature stars Richard Coyle (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time), Ruth Bradley (Flyboys), and Russell Tovey ("Being Human" UK).

Ciarán O’Shea, the handsome though washed up policeman of sleepy Erin Island, has a daily routine consisting mainly of hanging out at the pub with the local drunks and various other charmingly eccentric characters. But his day is about to go horribly wrong.

Teamed up with the unwanted help of Lisa – an uptight workaholic policewoman from the Irish mainland – they suddenly find themselves dealing with dead whales, decapitated fishermen and weird alien creatures or “grabbers”. Like a giant squid with tentacles, fanged jaws and a three-foot barbed tongue, they’re making mincemeat of the locals.

Faced with another imminent attack, O’Shea and Lisa figure out that the only person to survive the last onslaught only did so because he was so drunk his blood was literally toxic to the monsters. So there is only one thing for it: They have to get the entire village as drunk as possible in order to survive the night ... a task that the villagers apply themselves to with gusto.

But one person must remain sober so for the first time in years O’Shea has to face up to things without a drink. When things don’t go to plan, an extremely drunk Lisa and a very sober O’Shea have to reconcile their differences and somehow save the day.

While this list reads like a thinly veiled advertisement for Grabbers, it was still good. I personally would have squeezed the Deadly Spawn in there somehow. Maybe get rid of the Merman. That movie sucked.

It's not so much an ad as kind of a tie-in feature for the film. A lot of our Top ___ lists come about that way with a current film giving Dr. Gash an idea and serving as a jumping off point for him.

Don't hold it against Grabbers - it's great fun and really deserves an audience. : )

Deadly Spawn over Merman? Nah man, that's insane. Hell, Unicorn shoulda been on the list too!
