Daleks, Lorne Top List of Favorite Science Fiction/Fantasy Monsters

August 18, 2010

(ChattahBox) – Who doesn’t love Doctor Who? Apparently not the fans of SFX magazine, who have voted Daleks as the best “monsters” from any Sci-Fi or fantasy movie, TV show or book.

A full 8,000 people voted on the poll, which included 20 different choices for them to select. This was from a wide variety of sources, including some rather strange ones you may not have thought about on first thinking of monsters.

Of the selections, the number one choice was Daleks, followed by the Lorne from ‘Angel’, and then the aliens from the ‘Alien’ Franchise. But these were only the top three choices.

Probably my own favorite came in at number four, Death from Terry Pratchett’s comedy fantasy book series ‘Discworld’, and five was Smeagol dark side, Gollum, from the ‘Lord of the Rings’ series.

Also feature on the list were ‘The Thing’, The Shadows from ‘Babylon 5’, Gizmo from ‘Gremlins’ and last was Slimer, the green spook from ‘Ghostbusters’.

    Well, if it was the new berry flavored Daleks who EVERYONE hates or the season earlier version that looked like it meant business then I would agree. The Dalek design change seems more about making toyes easier to replicate, then to make something that could destroy the universe.

    But then again who’s to say what quality control went into the survey…. and where or when the sampling came from.

    Anything BUFFY would be at the bottom of my list… just on principle. (Thank god for Vampire Suck movie, about sums up my opinion of vampires movies lately.)

    But maybe if they had the poll they should include a lengthy description, and it would not surprise me many Americans are NOT that familiar with Dr Who.
