What's the least scary Stephen King monster?
I vote for the monster in "The Library Policeman." Takes the human form of a library policeman, like in Bookhunter. NOT SCARY. Actually looks like Trumpy from the MST3K movie "Pod People". NOT SCARY. Can only be stopped by [OMG MASSIVE SPOILERS] throwing Red Vines up its snout. NOT SCARY, also HUH?
Actually, the description of the Red Vines was the scariest part of the story. All glistening and sticky and gross. Ugh, Red Vines. If the evil clown from "It" was eating Red Vines, that would be about the scariest thing Stephen King ever came up with.
