OK, the Daleks from Doctor Who are badass. They exterminate anything and everything thats not of their kind. And, those voices of theirs, high pitch, monotone and mechanical. These guys are some scary ass mother fuckers, but GREATEST monsters of Science Fiction? Well, that’s what a poll from SFX magazine says. 8,000 sci-fi fans took park of survey to determine the best Monsters, Supernatural Beings and Fantasy Creatures as part of the mag’s 200th issue celebration. And, apparently Daleks took the top spot over Star Trek‘s Borg, Godzilla and even the Aliens from the Alien films!
Here’s how the results played out:
1. The Daleks (Doctor Who)
2. Lorne (Angel)
3. Aliens (the Alien franchise)
4. Death (Discworld)
5. Gollum (The Lord of the Rings)
6. The Shadows (Babylon 5)
7. Gizmo (Gremlins)
8. The Thing (The Thing)
9. Aslan (The Chronicles of Narnia)
10. Predators (the Predator franchise)
11. The Borg (Star Trek)
12. Pilot (Farscape)
13. The Cybermen (Doctor Who)
14. Godzilla (Godzilla)
15. Ludo (Labyrinth)
16. Pinhead (Hellraiser)
17. Nibbler (Futurama)
18. The Great Dragon (Merlin)
19. Frankenstein’s monster (Frankenstein)
20. Slimer (Ghostbusters)
If I may go out on a limb and say this is the stupiest list ever. OMIGOD is it such an EPIC FAIL!. Alsan, FAIL. Pilot, FAIL. The Great Dragon, FAIL. None One but two Doctor Who Characters, FAIL. And as much as I love Lorne he’s a FAIL too. Seriously, not one creature from Star Wars made it to the top 20? That in itself makes this an absolutley awful list.
What do you think? Who do you think should have made the the list? Who do you think should not be on the list?
