The Victorians managed to invent monsters, why can't we eh?
I mean how hard can it be?
for invention of monsters, try this (SFW)
Are we looking for general monster types like zombies and werewolves, or individual horrors like dracula and frankenstein's monster?

Respectable looking businessman that goes into an uncontrollable frenzy whenever he sees the amount of national insurance that has come off his paycheck and eats the lungs of his office workers. The temping agency love him, but wonder how he gets through so many staff. Occasionally seen staggering through the high street in the evening towards the end of the month covered in blood and sobbing inconsolably.
Obviously we can work on these details.
but it's a modern-day office worker update. Lots of room for scoial and political satire maybe.
I like the temping agency angle. Not enough dramas about transitional employment...
Stick with what you know, i'm an office worker!, etc.
A disgruntled ex-KFC worker who was disfigured after falling into a deep fat fryer, now wonders around the streets in a white linen suit, waving a walking stick around. He batters his victims to death then leaves their bones in a bucket.
there's always the potential for feeding the victims to innocent fools.
I like the whole web spiders thing, i couldn't believe it when i found out they were real. GREAT mythologising.
and having a lunatic that keeps their hoods as trophies? Has got a dog that doesn't seem like much until it's biting their faces while he clubs them with his tire-iron. Never gets close enough to be hassled by a group, but hangs around in the shadowy distance until they start to break up and go home, when he picks one of them off.
Maybe he could have a wife that cooks them? Or a tragic backstory? (caution required, this is getting pretty heavy-handed here...)

more mummies are needed.

take that vampire scum
A drama about a beautician so obsessed with her looks, that she starts murdering people by extracting all their fat and life force, injecting it into herself instead to feed her anti-social habit.
She ends up coming a cropper when Joan Rivers pops in for a bout, but unbeknown to our 'heroine' it turns out that Joan is a fat-feeding-fiend as well and the two cancel each other out, draining each others life force and leaving behind 2 mere skeletons.
Of course, as the titles roll you catch a brief glimpse of an arm emerging from the piles of wanton human flesh on the floor, which may or may not belong to David Gest.
Wasn't that Death Becomes Her?
They sneak into your mobile and whisper interference over your calls at vital moments.
A Time-travelling mutant comprised of the body of a slug and many tentacles. It's quest to absorb and eradicate important moments in history, but more importantly, it desires the destruction of...salt. Victims are killed in many ways, from strangulation by it's vicious tenacles, to gelatenous digestion, or to being dragged into it's gaping maw of doom.
Or is it a slavering beast? If the latter, then i suggest some sort of crazed/cultish follower intent on fulfilling Octo-Slug's destiny. Their devotion to Oct-Slug may well be... THEIR DOWNFAll.
Perhaps people who've been chosen by octo-slug and gifted with an extra arm...or the ability to squirt ink! It could spread it's informants throughout history to set up safe areas for when it appears from it's time-travel exploits.
and either a tv mini-series or a sunday morning cartoon show depending on the budget we've got here. Do kids still have branded lunchboxes these days?
