WHITBY, UNITED KINGDOM – OCTOBER 26: Peter Hatton dons a top hat on the promenade during Whitby Gothic Weekend on October 26, 2007 in Whitby, England. Whitby Gothic Weekend which started in 1994 to celebrate all things dark and mysterious has now grown to a twice yearly event for Goths. Whitby was partly chosen because Bram Stoker wrote his famous Dracula story in the fishing town with the Gothic Whitby Abbey as his inspiration. The weekend has now grown from providing a few bands to include followers of Romanticism and Dracula. (Photo by Christopher Furlong/Getty Images)

2. Dracula

Who isn’t afraid of Dracula? I mean, come on. As kids, everyone is afraid of vampires at some point or another. And if you’re not then maybe you are a vampire? Because really, they’re terrifying. Sexy things that lure you into them and then suck out your blood?

So either if you like Twilight vampires or Dracula himself, they’re scary. Not in the sense that you should fear them constantly but enough so that these monsters are always lurking in the backs of our minds late at night.

Often I used to think I’d wake up and there’d be a vampire that emerged into my room like David Bowie in Labyrinth and then it was going to kill me. So maybe I’m just irrational? Who knows but basically vampires are terrifying because they’re beautiful and they’ll lure you in with their vampire tricks and then you’re dead before you know it.

Which I guess is a great thing about monsters. They always find a way to bring you in and refuse to let you go. Which is why maybe everyone ends up dying but still, the idea that a vampire can either give you immortality without your consent or just kill you without you having a say in the matter is pretty terrifying.
