The Personification of Death
I was watching Hogfather yesterday and I was intrigued by a lot of what was said in that movie and how humans need to create fantasy in order to feel human. What got me was the personification of Death, a largely amusing character within the Discworld series, but I loved the portrayal in this movie.
The thing that is most interesting that people tend to forget is that nothing loves life more than death. So I kind wanted to see other personifications of death in other movies/tv shows. There are a lot more but these are the ones I personally found intriguing on how they portrayed Death.
