We talk about the monsters and villains of horror movies and television all the time, the Michaels, Freddys, Draculas, Predators, etc. It’s understandable, since the villains are often the most memorable parts of these tales, and many characters in the horror genre are forgettable stock types. But every now and then, there’s a hero/heroine who pops up and stands out in our minds, whether it be by the strength of the actor/actress playing them or by the fact that these characters show strength of any kind while others cower in fear as the monster picks them off one by one. These heroes are the ones that stand up to the monsters and throw themselves right into the perilous fray when no one else is willing to stand up or believe their claims of danger. Here is a video I created to celebrate them:
August is a 23-year-old aspiring film critic and college graduate in Film/Media who hails from New Jersey. He began developing his taste and passion for film after starting high school, and just in the past few years has gotten back into television too. He also enjoys a good video game every now and then too when he isn't doing a Netflix marathon or keeping up with news in the entertainment industry. Often finds himself collecting books and comics more than he actually reads them. He started his own blog for film reviews entitled License to Review, on account of James Bond being his favorite series and character, and then followed that up by becoming the Entertainment Editor at his college newspaper. Ask him what his favorite anything is and he'll immediately jump to Aliens, Seinfeld, Led Zeppelin, and everything from Blizzard Entertainment and Naughty Dog.
