Happy Monster Monday, fiends! Today’s monster comes from “Blink,” one of my favorite episodes of Doctor Who. While the show is generally more oriented toward sci-fi (and ripping out my heart and stomping on it), Doctor Who also does a damn fine job when it comes to horror episodes.
“Blink” introduces us to the Weeping Angels, living statues that send people back in time to feed off the time energy resulting from their temporal displacement. The Angels only move when you’re not looking; you have to keep your eyes on them at all times without even blinking (hence the episode title). This is extremely difficult to do, especially since seeing a Weeping Angel’s face will make you want to look away in terror. And don’t even get me started on the creepy giggling cherubs from “The Angels Take Manhattan.” Brrr.
Behold the Weeping Angels, kiddies, but remember: don’t blink. Don’t even blink. Blink, and you’re dead.
Have a good week, fiends. Keep it creepy.
