The mythological origins of the image of a fantasy monster are traced, the mechanisms of creating monstrous images are identified, the most famous literary and screen representations of monstrous are analyzed. A comparison of literary and screen text, revealing by their means the problem of attitude to Another in culture. The conclusion is made about the ambivalence of fantasy-monstrous images that filled the modern mass culture from the point of view of the role in the formation of the relationship to the Other in culture and society.
