Monster by Gnarls Barkley
"I got a monster in my closet
Someone's underneath my bed
The wind's knocking at my window...
Then I realised it was a mirror...
The whole time the monster was me..."
Mash by Bobby Boris Pickett :
"... my eyes beheld an eerie sight
For my monster from his slab began to rise...
To the master bedroom where the vampires feast
The ghouls all came from their humble abodes...
The zombies were having fun...
The guests included Wolf Man
Dracula and his son...
Igor on chains, backed by his baying hounds
The coffin-bangers were about to arrive..."

How 10 Iconic Movie Monsters Were Created - with movie clips
"Movie monsters have been through an evolution as wild and nuanced as Charles Darwin’s. Back in the days of silent film, they were created with paint and fish gills. Studios eventually graduated to puppets and monkey models, before CGI made it impossibly easy to dream up new terrors. Because it’s almost Halloween and you’re likely watching one of those monsters—whether it’s Frankenstein, Dracula, or The Fly—on TV, here are the secrets behind their creation. If you think they’re scary, you should’ve seen Lon Chaney’s nose on The Phantom of the Opera set."
