In going with the theme of Halloween, here is a list of 10 of the best movie monsters throughout the years.
10. The Deadly Mantis, The Deadly Mantis
This time the stick-like predatory insect known as the praying mantis, which for some reason has grown to 200-feet in length, has developed a penchant for eating remote weather stations and Eskimos.
9. Megalodon, Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus
Although this is probably one of the worst movies I have ever seen, it is still pretty impressive when a 200 ft. shark jumps out of the water and takes down a Boeing 747.
8. Boggy Creek Monster, The Legend of Boggy Creek
It’s basically just Arkansas’s version of Bigfoot. What made this low-budget 1972 docudrama so scary was not the monster (which you never really see except fleetingly and usually out of focus) so much as the fact that it was supposedly a true story.
7. The Cloverfield Monster, Cloverfield
It basically destroys all of New York City by itself—can’t top that.
6. The Thing, The Thing
It’s an extraterrestrial creature that can perfectly copy a human’s DNA and look like them. The film takes place in isolated Antarctica, which is a recipe for paranoia.
5. Godzilla, Godzilla
It’s hard to argue that Godzilla isn’t the best-known Hollywood critter in the world.
4. Predator, Predator
These guys have no desire to invade the planet; they just want to come and hunt humans. This one in particular goes toe-to-toe with a whole platoon of marines before finally falling to, of course, Arnold Schwarzenegger.
3. Jaws, Jaws
While the great white shark from the 1975 blockbuster hit Jaws wasn’t a monster in the typical sense (oversized, radioactive, fire-breathing, etc.) he (Or was it a she? We’re not ever told for sure) scared an entire generation of beachgoers out of the water.
2. King Kong, King Kong
This one is my personal favorite. Arguably the second most popular monster of all time, this fifty-foot-tall ape first appeared on the silver screen back in 1933. He was a huge hit and went on to inspire several sequels and a couple of remakes. Also, when you can take on three Tyrannosaurus Rexes and win, you deserve a spot on the list.
1. Creature, Alien
What could be better than a creature that crams embryos down your throat which burst out of your chest when they come to term and then have the baby get big enough in a few days to carry you off to its lair?
