I just watched the HOST last night.....yep that creature is uuuuuugly! I thought the special effects were pretty good in tht movie where the beast/creature was concerned. UGLY, UGLY monster. Comparable to Ripley's ALIENS.
Yes, those are good ones. How about these? The Blob - both the '80s and the '50s versions. In the '80s version the blob sucks a guy down a sink drain. I was frightened of the kitchen sink for weeks after seeing that as a kid.
Invasion of the Body Snatchers - any version. I like the '70s version most. There's a fun '90s version by Abel Ferrara, too, set on an army base.
The Thing - again, there are two versions. The original '50s version, by Howard Hawks, is a classic, possibly THE classic, creature invasion story. It involves scientists and army men in an arctic station working out how to defeat the intelligent plant-like alien that attacks. John Carpenter's '80s remake is one of the scariest movies of the '80s. I think everyone's heard of it.
Oh hell yeah I love those movies, notice that Demons and Demons 2 are essentially the same film, just set in different settings, the first one in a cinema and the second in an apartment block....I think it's funny when the black man shows up in both films....he's a bad ass shaft character...er until he gets killed that is!!
Here's an obscure one I haven't seen in a couple of decades: 'Tarantula' with Leo G. Carroll (Mr. Waverly on the Man from U.N.C.L.E.).
Naturally enough it's about a lab experiment that gets out of hand, and a mutant tarantula gets so big..so fast, it breaks out of the lab and just keeps growing, eating any humans in its' path. Wooahhh...scary.
Oh yeah..how about 'Creature from the Black Lagoon'?
It's a South Korean flick about a family with all of their quirks, humors, & personal tragedies losing their youngest to a mutated beastie. I thought it had some of the best special effects of any monster movie made in the past few years, and the story line (though cheesy) is endearing. Like many monster movies, at least in the atmospheric '70s style, it does have overtones of government conspiracy, but considering the flick's country of origin this adds a certain amount of charm & perspective to the story.
If we want to discuss killer creatures in a literal sense, then it has to be the ever lovable vampire. The thought of fangs taking life and returning it (figuratively) is the means of human anhialition.
On a figurative note, What about "Jigsaw"? One person so freaking sick as to have this sadistic masterplan to kill from the afterlife is utterly fantastic.
There are so many others I plan on reposting after doing some more research....There are thousands of possible entries. More to come....
Well I'm a werewolf junkie so I have to say dogsoldiers. its the rare monster movie that isn't afraid to show you the monster.
On another note, movie's didn't really scare me as a kid (hoenst to god it was logic puzzles that creeped me out) but I took a nephew to see Star Trek First Contact as being a trekkie runs in the family. I touched him on the back of the neck about halfway through and he flat out screamed... my bad.

I would have to honestly say that it would have to be a CHILDS PLAY!!!!! Nothing is more alarming than a killing childs doll.... lets be serious now. Although Jeepers creepers I could never watch alone at night for a while after it came out... well don't laugh... it was 7 years after it came out is when i could watch it alone
when I was kid, I watched Child's Play and couldn't sleep many nights, was very scared. But now I really enjoy watching such movies Doom is one of my favorite movie. I've also played its game and really enjoyed. I also used to read horror novels from different authors, and found that Stephen King places his ideas in novel very well.
Haha tell me about it! I laugh everytime I watch those trailers... By the same company too! They seem to have an obsession with "mega" sized sea creatures. Actually they wanted to do one about a giant sea horse...
Oh my god!! There is probably nothing LESS scary in the water than a seahorse! hahahaha what on earth are they thinking!! I think the last one i watched was mega croc or super croc, whatever name it was and the CGI work was so bad at parts it truly looked like a cartoon croc! So stupid!
Although the effects aren't that good, I like a few monsters in past movies.
I like "The Body Snatchers" About pods that duplicate humans while they are sleeping (the real person dies)
2. The Blob-An alien that reminds me of liver. He crawls on you and consumes your flesh. When they pulled it off of an arm or something, all would be gone but the bone. It grew larger as larger and if a piece was cut off it became another one.
3. There is a real old movie I watched when I was about seven called "Cyclops" a one eyed man. A few stories tall.
These days the aliens are all robot, or funny looking humanoids
I'm kinda shocked you agreed wit me being a chick yourself and the 99% of fans for twilight being women, but i can see your a true blue creature/monster/slasher movie fan which is interesting. The movie industry should promote me in creating a horror flick, I believe I would not disappoint, HAHAHA.....
Oh yeah all my friends are obsessed, I was forced to watch the first one and didnt find it to be anything worth watching again thats for sure! I would have to agree you with you about your movie! I would def support any horror film you might dream up, as long as I get the first screening, haha
Yeah i must have missed this comment post 5 weeks ago, yeah i was slipping, but you be more than welcome to screen a horror movie if i would ever create one and it's always good finding a follow true blue horror fan......
I like the Dawn of the Dead that Zack Snyder directed The running Zombies scares me a lot. (Run for your life!) And of course the classic slow moving Zombies (Braiiinnnssss!) The King of Zombie flick "George A. Romero" is awesome!
So many to choose from! I love zombie movies! Alien was awesome!! As far as vampires go, Nosferatu, the old silent horror movie, by far has the best and creepiest vampire. The Mist was great, though I liked it more for the psychological aspect as apposed to the creatures.
