    Can You Survive off of Fear?

    Can You Survive off of Fear?

    A quick flashback to 2017 and a lot of you will remember the movie IT. I loved the movie due to the new interpretation of Pennywise. Now personally, I am a man of science and I like to rip things apart. As obvious by the title, I was really bugged by the fact that Pennywise doesn’t kill/eat Beverly, but he puts her in a hypnotised state instead. After digging a little deeper, (literally just me watching the film again) I realised that Pennywise only eats “scared” children. He has even gone as far as saying that “frightened flesh tastes better.” Now, this really got me curious, since a monster like him shouldn’t really give a damn whether the child he’s after is scared or not. It should be that he needs energy to survive, hence he feeds on innocent little children. But this clearly isn’t the case because he doesn’t just eat Beverly. So I asked myself the question, what’s so special about someone who is frightened and if Pennywise can survive on “fear?”

    The Full Moon

    The Full Moon

    The worst cramps I have ever had set into my biceps. My arms began twisting. I could feel my ankles popping. It came on so suddenly. I dropped to my bedroom floor. I looked out the window and saw a full moon. I could feel my bones cracking and breaking. Behind me, I heard this voice that said, “Mommy?” I crawled around to face the voice, and it was my little seven-year-old daughter, Emily. Emily started to cry at the sight of me. I tried to calm her down, but all she did was run out of the room screaming.

    Maiden to Monster

    Maiden to Monster

    Growing up, I absolutely loved learning about Greek Mythology. I was always a bit of a nerd and, to me, mixing an ancient history lesson with an element of fantasy or mystique was GOLDEN. So when I stumbled upon the Ancient Greeks, it was a match made in Olympus. The myths and legends fascinated me! The Gods, demi-gods, quests…and let’s not forget the monsters. The Ancient Greeks have some of the most interesting monsters I have ever seen. Some you may know, like the Minotaur, Pegasus, and Cyclops. Others may be more obscure such as the Graeae, Empusa, or the Manticore. But the most popular monster, and the one most discussed, is Medusa the Gorgon. This snake-woman hybrid was said to have the ability to turn man to stone and could only be killed by cutting off her head.

    Czar Hobgoblin

    It is alleged that only a madman would believe such heresies to common logic that are written in this tale. In a world ignorant of its past, all of the tell-tale signs, monoliths dedicated to pagan worship within the city’s ancient inhabitants demolished by power-hungry iconoclasts are plastered on every building new and old; all signs of the universe that lie many fathoms beneath the asphalt-laden earth, of inhuman beings who were vanquished by their greatest enemy, the alien race of mankind. They are a diverse lot, many of whom live like outcasts reveling in Sodom, others having morphed into more feral beasts lingering below, feasting upon whatever living meat they could sink their fangs into, and others who still to this day, after thousands of years, await the day they could wage war on the world above and conquer the earth they once inhabited in freedom. Their transition into the sunlit world varies to this day, perhaps due to their intolerance of the light, or their physical weakness outdone by the might of creatures above them. But what is clear is that they still plague the sewers and tombs underground, breeding like pigeons and waiting, just waiting for the day they will infest the city like viruses and drink the blood of gods.
