Monsters, myths, and cautionary tales
There are lots of different types of supernatural creatures, from mythical beings with divine powers and snakes for hair or multiple heads, to grotesque figures with superhuman strength and fictional creatures based on real animals. The word ‘monster’ is related to the Latin words ‘monere’ and ‘monstrum’. Moneo means to warn, and monstrum means an evil omen. Both word relate to the traditional function of monsters in myths and folklore, to instruct people that certain acts and attitudes may have terrible consequences! In modern horror and sci-fi film and literature, much of this cautionary function has been preserved, often reflecting current social fears and anxieties. For instance, mutated humans and reawakened ancient creatures of the deep often warn of the consequences of pollution, nuclear hazards, or unnatural science.
