If fiction were real life which character would you least want to meet? Cthulhu comes to mind. Godzilla really isn’t all that bad. In some contexts he’s the hero.
ALIEN - Sigourney Weaver's nemesis comes to mind. Even if you cut off an arm or something - the blood will melt through the floor, nevertheless your hand. And being placed in a cocoon to be used as baby food is really gross as well. And no one's coming to help because in Space no one can hear you...well...SCREAM!!!!
I'd volunteer the 'Thing'. It's more the paranoia than any outright fear, but then there's all those tentacles and teeth...
Something from history. I'd hate to be on the receiving end of the Inquisition.
The Alien from the original Alien was indeed frightening. That thing and Freddie Kruger would be two things you don't want to see standing over your bed when you wake up in the middle of the night. But I'll go with the T-1000 from Terminator 2 because it looks nice and friendly, then suddenly it's killing you.
I think I would fail to fear the T-1000 until it was too late to fear anything, for precisely that reason... I think I would most fear the baby-thing from a short story I read about a guy who uses people's pity against them... Well, you'd have to have read the story, but it just keeps coming, and is incredibly creepy.
boo boo foo
You're kind of creepy, too.
