30 Days Of Horror Challenge Day 5: Your Favorite Modern Monster

While we focused on classic monsters yesterday, today we want to talk about the modern world of horror and monsters! We’ll consider modern anything in the last forty or so years so that provides a good range and variety to choose from, especially as you can see ones that have really found their place in the larger consciousness. There are a lot of good options to choose from out there, both in the darker gory style that comes from Silent Hill or to the still disturbing Xenomorph in the Alien film. Which one is your favorite of the modern era of horror?

Bonus question: Which modern monster can’t you take seriously at all?
