But you can theoretically shoot the guy hiding behind the door (although it's more likely that you'll end up stabbing him with his own knife after you just managed to reach and grab it off the floor while he is trying to suffocate you) and he will die. But, with a ghost, bullets don't work. You don't know what kills the ghost (or other supernatural being). It might be something very specific and hard to find. And even when it seems like you've killed it, it still might come back. You just can't know for certain.

Here's how I see it:

psycho killer < natural disaster < non-regenerating aliens < Xenomorphs < Predators < Regenerating aliens < raptors < werewolf < vampire < witch < The Creeper < zombies < ghost < regenerating zombies

And all of that < regenerating raptors.

There's an error in the [edit]second-to-[/edit]previous post on this thread. It shows a point as if it were new, though it has been pointed out already.
Thought I'd just nitpick.

A fun coincidence, the comic number is 555 (symmetric number, comic about mirrors, etc.)

They can recruit the dead into their ranks; your fallen comrades will be join in the attempt to devour you. A single bite and you're fucked. The zombie virus takes over the host's dead body and uses it to spread the infection. I cannot give zombies enough credit.

Regenerating raptors can't be real. If there were regenerating raptors, everyone be dead. Not everyone is dead. Therefore, regenerating don't exist.

Regenerating raptors can be discounted anyway, from Occam's Razor... Regenerating raptors and their non-regenerating brethren would, after all, behave identically in all situations, where they don't get damaged badly enough to need regeneration. So since any difference between the two is immeasurable, Occam's Razor says we shouldn't consider them distinct.

Really? The reason I don't use the bathroom at night with the lights off is that I'd likely end up pissing on the floor if I did.

ZING!

My sister showed me a series of Bloody Mary videos when I was 7. Thus started a nine-year war with the fear of the dark. Yeesh.
