We’ve finished the first round of Monster Madness! It’s time to move onto the second round today. This is where the decisions get tougher and the match-ups get all the more exciting.
First off, I’d like to offer a quick apology. Monster Madness has been on a brief hiatus the last couple of weeks. I had a family emergency and couldn’t get any work done during that time. Then the holiday season hit, which pushed back the tournament a bit more. Finally, here we are, ready to get the second round of bloody monster mayhem cranked into full gear.
Now here’s an interesting match-up. Both of these monsters are city-wrecking behemoths that don’t seem to be phased by gunfire, missiles or any other conventional weaponry that human armies can throw at them. One lays waste to the Tokyo skyline while the other takes out Manhattan with brutal destruction.
Colverfield – It’s said, or at least hinted at (I can’t really remember), in the movie that the Cloverfield monster is just a baby. This triggers the obvious question: What the hell would an adult Cloverfield look like? Either way, he’s a monster with immense power who can surely put up a fight against Godzilla.
Tools of the Trade: Besides being a gigantic roaring destructo-machine, Cloverfield also unleashes blood-sucking parasites. Could an army of those monster fleas be the difference maker in a battle against the mighty Godzilla?
Godzilla – He’s probably the most famous movie monster. Godzilla has lived through numerous eras of cinema, destroying every concrete structure that he comes into contact with. So many years of terror, so many smushed Tokyo citizens.
Tools of the Trade: Godzilla boasts enormous power and strength, but also has a trick up his reptilian sleeve. Nuclear fire! That’s right, he can breathe nuclear fire. That’s pretty badass.

Huh. Now here’s a match-up I never thought would take place. A demonically possessed children’s doll battles an evil telekinetic tire. This one should be interesting.
Chucky – I saw ‘Child’s Play’ at far too young an age. I cowered in fear as my once beloved My Buddy doll stared at me from across the room after the lights went out. It was an unnerving feeling to think that your doll could come to life and murder you.
Tools of the Trade: Sporting a healthy dose of Satanic mojo, Chucky uses any type of weaponry to dispatch his victims. Mostly, he’s just really freaky.
Tire – It can cause your head to explode just by thinking about it. One wonders how the tire thinks without a brain, but there you go. However, you have to question its ability here. Tire has only been shown to explode living heads. Chucky’s head is plastic. Will Tire’s deadly trick work here?
Tools of the Trade: Telekinesis and serious road tread.
