Misunderstood Monsters in film

A Monster in Paris

Feature by Jack Foley

MONSTERS in films are most commonly portrayed as terrifying and evil creatures known to prey on humans and haunt children’s dreams.

Ths list dispels this theory and shows that not all monsters are what they seem and can, in fact, often be misunderstood characters who are friendly and tug at our heart strings with their selfless, heroic acts to ensure their friends are safe.

As people tend to enjoy seeing misfits becoming heroes, many Hollywood movies present a new breed of monsters, ones who go against their history and how they always use to be portrayed, instead showing the softer side of these big characters.
