To celebrate the upcoming release of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, the Sleep Matters Club have rounded up 40 bedtime monsters for a fearsome fact file.
As far-fetched as it may seem, some of the most menacing monsters aren’t from the pages of books or the silver screen; they’re from real-world myths and legends. To create the infographic, we’ve scoured the darkest dungeons and most frightening fortresses across the globe.
Each monster has been awarded a danger rating, so you’ll know how safe it is to approach it. You’ll also discover their key traits and where they’re most likely to lurk. It’s short and sweet so you’ll be able to quickly identify them when they’re coming at you!
On the lower end of the scare scale is Frankenstein’s Monster. He’s generally a good guy, but his anger is unleashed when tormented by mad scientists. We (The Sleep Matters Club) think he deserves a danger rating of two.
If you ever visit Greenland, the Amarok is one local you don’t want to bump into. He’s a terrifying local who pursues and eats those foolish enough to be out hunting along at night. For this reason, we’ve given him the maximum danger rating of five.
Newt Scamander would be proud!
