Suddenly, I snapped to attention for an awesome creature, ugly or misshapen was moving up the alley.
What word should I use to replace the word 'awesome'? The choices are remarkable, frightening, amazing, splendid.
The answer given is 'remarkable'. However, I think that it should 'frightening'. Am I correct?
As an aside, is 'for' redundant?

"For" is not redundant. It is there instead of the word "because". You need something between "attention" and "an" if it's going to remain as one sentence. If you wanted to split it into two sentences then you could remove "for" but it wouldn't necessarily be clear that the creature's approach was the reason for your snapping to attention.
