Umm, that's not the monster movement we're talking about. We're talking about the special cards that move monsters according to the rules printed on those cards. Question 2 in the OP is rather clear about that; he's not asking about Monster Turn movement, which as I recall obeys strict rules and involves no decision-making.

Logical deal is to let the player move them also. He should get to figure out the screwed up movement. But then we haven't run into a problem yet. If they can't move, they don't.
True (and not what we were referring to) but:

"It doesn’t matter who moves the monsters, because their movement is
controlled by the colored Monster Movement Arrows on the rooms."

My personal view is that monsters only move closer in a normal, linear, 2-D fashion. No moving through the darkness to wrap around on ya, and no "moving along the path which physically takes me further away from you but decreases the number of rooms I have to travel through to get to you".

If an imaginary line segment connecting the two gets shorter by moving the monster, it moves (if it can). Otherwise, it stays put.

/my thoughts, anyway
