As we come to the end of October, I hope you've enjoyed a month filled with family and friends and a bit more normal than much of these year has been. Today's topic is Top 5... Creepy Characters. Here is what I came up with.
Perhaps the creepiest character that comes to mind is Pennywise from Stephen King's It. I never found clowns creepy until I saw this movie. I can't even read the book.
Annie Wilkes is enough to make you not want to do anything that warrants attention. A crazy fan that tries to kill you. No thanks.
Peter Pettigrew "Wormtail" is so sick and twisted that no one liked him even as a kid. He betrayed Lily and James Potter which led to their deaths, chose to live as a rat for 12 years to avoid being caught, and hid out with Ron's family to protect himself from Death Eaters. Even Voldemort didn't like him. That says a lot.
President Snow from The Hunger Games Trilogy and its prequel was a conniving man who believed in the Capitol's treatment of those who lived in the Districts. His cruelty does not discriminate; he sends little children to their deaths and has his rivals and those who disappointment him killed.
Did you ever go to bed the night before a new school year and pray you didn't have a headmistress as dreadful as Miss Trunchbull? She could give you nightmares for years. An excessive disciplinarian, she tortured children and teachers alike.
What did you think of my list today? Would you add any to the list?
