- Inferno by Dante
Dante and Virgil run into the Minotaur in the seventh circle of Hell, home to some very violent souls. Asterion is not super psyched about their appearance.

Want to hear Asterion's side of things? Here's your chance: he speaks in the first person in this short story. And he's not too happy.
- The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis 1950 - 1956
There's more than just one minotaur in the world of Narnia. (We were really set with just one, thank you very much.)

Percy gives the Minotaur no mercy in this take on the story. Hey, he had it coming.

As creepy as you thought the Minotaur was, this movie has got you beat. The movie cover alone has given us nightmares.

Epic tale? Check. Novel? Check. Movie? Check. And now, he's made his way into the world of video games.
- Immortals 2011
Sorry, Asterion. This one is a story about Theseus, but hey, it's in 3-D. We couldn't pass it by.
- Wrath of the Titans 2012
This flick might not be super accurate to the myth, but you know what they say: there's no such thing as bad press.
