to a realm where creatures roam and where monsters dwell.  IN SEARCH OF MONSTERS is a site celebrating the fantastic beasts of movies, mythology, and other media.  Monsters of all sizes and shapes lurk within.  From Kaiju to Cryptids, Ghosts to Ghouls, and Aliens to Apes; if it is inhuman, it will have a home here.
