The Science of Monsters

‘Defined as horrible to behold and a threat to all who cross them, monsters are creatures we run from and bearers we warn our children about. Yet something about them is enticing, mesmerising, and addictive. Terrible as they might be, we cannot help looking ever closer, parting the fingers that are covering our eyes. There is no getting around it: Something deep inside monsters fascinates us.’

– ‘The Science of Monsters’ by Matt Kaplan
