Who's Scarier than the Grim Reaper?

No one is scarier than the Grim Reaper. He strikes fear into the heart of every person or thing.

This page serves up information on the Grim Reaper, Grim Reaper Home Decorations and Grim Reaper outdoor decoration for people looking for a good dose of fear or even Halloween fun.

Who or What is the Grim Reaper?

The Grim Reaper is death personified. Our current version of death as a skeleton character in a black cloak carrying a scythe originates in the 15th century. The Grim Reaper is either death himself or acting as agent of death transporting the dearly departed to their new supernatural home. There are two schools of thought on the Grim Reapers role. He either has no power to affect change in a persons destiny or he does have a choice making him susceptible to trickery as seen in Greek myth with Sisyphus.

Notably the Grim Reaper has become synonymous with the Angel of Death.
