Darkman;; im also a horror hoe for freddy krueger so that's self-explanatory LMAO) but YEA thanks n have a nice day !! luv u !! - 👻 anon

Ah sweet noodle anon, welcome to my inbox! First off I hope you have an awesome nice day as well. As a side note I have always been meaning to watch My Demon Lover because the plot synopsis is so right up my alleyway, so I’m gonna have to try to find that one sometime soon.

As for monster lovin’ movies I enjoy/know of it’s not a long list because sadly there just isn’t many really ‘teratophilia’ movies out there.

Friday the 13th series What can I say I am a Jason Voorhees gurl.

The Demon Lo/Lo (2009) A wonderful weird campy slightly horror/romance and just a heart twisting story about a man looking for his girlfriend that was taken by demons. Whole movie takes place one room with a low budget but man… The demon LO and the twist at the end of the movie… Perfect terato film.

Strange Magic (2015) An animated film but monster dude King Bog is very monstrous and the movie is cheesy but dang, really good monster romance movie for sure.

Wishmaster (1997) Solely cause I ship the main character and the Djinn lol There is chemistry there dang it.

Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954) Is an oldie but a goodie though I assume you have already seen it (and alas we know the monster doesn’t get the girl).

Spring (2014) I have not seen this one but I have heard it is a really good movie involving a girl with a rather monstrous cycle and is a love story between her and the main character.

Demon Seed (1977) I have not fully watched this one either but basically a robot/computer takes interest in a woman so that it can be reborn/evolve as a human being. Waning non-con/dub-con issues-it is not a consensual relationship really.

Creep (2004) A movie I saw when I was younger about a girl ending up sleep in a subway platform and quickly hunted by this disfigured man living in the tunnels. Okay no romance what so ever but as a young teratophile I took what I could get.

Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters (2013) Might just be my opinion alone but the troll character Edward and one of the main characters-Gretel… Well, their relationship (whatever it is) is too cute not to include.

District 9 (2009) Got cute alien prawn crab like race of beings with the main character turning into one. One of my favorite movies ever.

There are probably more but I can’t think of them off the top of my head. I am going to watch a movie I found tonight that might be a good Terato movie, but I will repot on that later. I’m always on the hunt and usually do post when I find something new!

any recs for some good female driven narratives? i feel you with the sick of the sausage fest with leads

Yesss!

Books

  • Sabriel by Garth Nix, though the whole Old Kingdom series is female-driven; I’ve only just finished reading the first book and I LOVE it.
  • The Inkheart trilogy by Cornelia Funke; I confess I only read the first two (because those were the two that were out when I read them), but they have been imprinted on my memory forever. Amazing books.
  • Any of Lisa See’s novels. They are all historical fiction books featuring Chinese women in different time periods both in and outside of China. All of them are gorgeous, all of them are heart wrenching. My personal favorites are Snow Flower and the Secret Fan and Shanghai Girls.
  • Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier. One of my favorite novels of all time.
  • The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. A classic, but rather good seeing as it explores the life of someone who is not neurotypical.
  • Memoirs Of A Geisha by Arthur Golden.  It was brought to my attention that Golden grossly depicted certain Geisha practices and violated the promise of anonymity for Mineko Iwasaki, whom he interviewed for the novel. Read her autobiography instead, Geisha of Gion, because the story of a Japanese woman will always be better told by such than by a white man. I’m gonna pick it up as soon as I can!
  • A Song Of Ice and Fire series, by George R.R. Martin. Though I (rightfully) rag on him for the excessive violence against women in these novels, he still writes women’s POVs extremely well.
  • The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. The books are 19083980420x better than the movies, esp since you can imagine Katniss as someone who isn’t white and played by an average-at-best actress.
  • Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. The film is great, don’t get me wrong, but the book is really special too. You also see more of Sophie’s sisters and step-mother in the books too.
  • The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison. A BEAUTIFUL heart-breaking book that focuses on white standards of beauty and how it affects the self-esteem and psyche of a young black girl living in a time rife with racism and oppression.

Films

  • Mad Max: Fury Road. Truly one of the best female-driven narratives I have seen in film in a long, long time.
  • Gone Girl. Obvious reasons here. I love murderesses who are also sympathetic characters and not just a secondary character who is described, at best, as “psycho” by the leading male. 
  • Late Spring and Early Summer, both directed by Yasujirō Ozu. Both deal with the role of women in post-war Japan, both star the brilliant and talented Setsuko Hara, and both are beautiful in such nostalgic, subtle ways. I cried watching these films.
  • ANY. STUDIO. GHIBLI. FILM. Most are female-led (and even those that are male-led feature women in important non-romantic roles), almost all of them feature no romance or romance in a platonic way and/or as a very minor plot point. There’s even a heavily implied lesbian relationship in When Marnie Was There. Spirited Away and Kiki’s Delivery Service both feature girls who take control of their destinies and both Chihiro and Kiki are personal heroes of mine. Princess Mononoke has Ashitaka, an exiled prince, as it’s main hero, but this film is nothing without San, and Ashitaka is far from your average male hero. He is smart and kind and sympathetic, and his love for San is gentle and sweet. San kicks ass and rules her own destiny while saving what she loves.
  • The Women. THE ENTIRE CAST AND EVERY SPEAKING ROLE FEATURES WOMEN. THIS WAS A MOVIE MADE IN 1939. WATCH IT.
  • Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? Here you have two of the most brilliant actresses of Old Hollywood, Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, both who were touted as rivals by the media at the time, and both who are FLAWLESS in this film. I can’t even remember a man showing up in the film, lol.
  • Jackie Brown and Kill Bill are my fav Tarantino films for a reason.
  • La Vie en Rose. An intimate look into the tragic life of Edith Piaf. Easily Marion Cotillard’s best role to date.
  • La passion de Jeanne d'Arc. This is a silent film whose main focus is Maria Falconetti’s beautiful, emotive face. She is BRILLIANT despite the trappings of the silent film medium.
  • Persona. This film will fuck you up, I promise you. Features mainly two women for 99% of the film, focuses on a very unique nurse-patient relationship.

There’s a bunch I’m forgetting, I’m sure, but I’d wager that this is a good place to start, lol.
