One can’t argue that Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein monster does, and rightfully should reign supreme across a lot of the states. However, it’s quite a flip from last year where Johnny boy, Jack Torrance reigned as King of the Horror Hill in Google trends- whereas this year, he only shines in Stephen King’s home state of Maine. You can compare last year’s result here.
