In honor of the most delightfully ghoulish month of the year, we have pitted our favorite monsters of all time against each other in a 32-monster bracket contest. Think of it as March Madness, only October style.

Best of all, you decided the winner — the greatest monster of all time.

In a series of single-elimination battles between the monsters, voters decided online which advanced.

We announce the winners here. Now, Halloween can officially begin.
