Reverse Medusa

Jun 24 2013

So, one morning I woke up thinking about monsters (as I usually do), and a thought occurred to me. Why is it that man-animal hybrid monsters always put the human side in charge. Why are the “good features” always on the human side?

For example, why is a werewolf a wolf shaped like a handsome man? Why can’t it be a man shaped like a dog? Wouldn’t that make for an infinitely creepier monster? A creature with a canine posture, but with human skin and head.

So yeah, I used the Medusa as a prototype for this theory by just reversing the snake and human parts. I think I was right. This is way more disturbing than the classic version.
