Best Horror Movies!!! Killer Creatures Series!!!
Which do you think is the Ultimate Killer Creature Movie??
Now I know a lot of people consider Zombies, Vampires, and Masked Muderers part of a "Monster Movie" list, that's why i put "Creatures" This list is made up of the other terrible alien/animal/human things that go bump in the night. Zombies & Vampires will get their very own Hub soon Believe Me! :)
FEAST is about the hard-drinking patrons of a small-town dive bar who are forced to fight for their lives when a vicious family of flesh-eating creatures arrive looking for their latest meal. When they find themselves trapped in the isolated tavern, they must band together in a battle for survival against the flesh-hungry creatures that lay siege.
This movie is funny,scary and action packed.The characters were human and willing to lie and cheat to save there own skin.Most horror films are predictable in terms of who is gonna die.In feast however you're always guessing who's next. Now this film was part of HBOs Green Light project so with the films razor thin budget I believe you should take this film for exactly what it is which is just good horrifying fun.
The Descent is about six girlfriends who meet in a remote part of the Appalachians for their annual caving trip. Deep below the surface of the earth, disaster strikes when a rock falls and blocks their route back to the surface. The girls soon learn that their leader has brought them to an unexplored cave and that as a result no knows where they are to come rescue them. The group pushes on, praying for another exit. But there is something else lurking under the earth - a race of monstrous humanoid creatures that are adapted perfectly to life in the dark. As the friends realize they are now prey, they are forced to unleash their most primal instincts in an all-out war against an unspeakable horror.
It starts out with a bang, slows down a bit and then we get into the cave. 6 women climbing down into what they think is a tourist type cave but soon find out they have been deceived by their own friend who seems to want to prove something. Well being trapped underground with no idea of how to get out is bad enough but the plot thickens when they find out they are not alone. This movie has some really shocking scenes and moments that make you jump out of your seat. The acting is great for a bunch of unknowns. You really feel their fear as they perish one by one. Complete with the not so Hollywood ending this film is well written, well acted, well shot, and a must for any horror movie lover.
Pitch Black is set in the not-too-distant future, a docking pilot makes a forced crash-landing of her spacecraft on a distant planet. As the survivors explore the uncomfortably hot planet, they must band together. The planet is eerie, arid, and lifeless. But as the sun sets and the planet plunges into total darkness, other inhabitants emerge, a group of terrifying alien monsters that have come out of their hibernation with only one thought of their mind.... Where to find their Next Meal!!
Good ideas, interesting characters, nice and dark and atmospheric. The monsters are very life like and certainly strike fear into the viewer and are able to keep the suspense up throughout the movie. My only quibble with the movie is that it starts painfully but If you enjoy Monster Sci-Fi films then you can sit back and enjoy a very good film that gets stronger as it goes along.
Gremlins is about a wholesome, All-American town that is turned upside-down, when "gremlins"--some impish little creatures--are accidentally unleashed and wreak havoc.
Now I know I know, calling this a horror film may be a stretch but lets face it, when we were young and this movie came out then was nothing scarier then thinking you had a gremlin inside your house or hiding in your Christmas tree!!!! One of the best Christmas films, ha-ha, and just a classic film all around. The Gremlins have a few "POP out of nowhere" moments that still can make me jump and there just isn't anything cuter then their furry and mild mannered cousin GIZMO, who ends up being the cute and cuddly heroine of the film.
Jeepers Creepers is about a girl named Trish and her younger brother Darry who are driving home for Spring break -- it's a routine road trip home from college. They soon recall a spooky tale of a teenage couple from their old high school who disappeared twenty years earlier along the same stretch of road. As the story goes, they found her body but they never found him...or her head. Later, driving past an old church, they see a mysterious cloaked figure, who chases them before vanishing. Soon, their road trip is turning into a heart-stopping race for their lives, as they find themselves the prey of an indestructible force that relentlessly pursues them
This movie will most definately appeal to people who have driven across country or at least a few states....because when you are in an unfamiliar place anything and anyone can be scary. The creeper is a serious killer. He is like a great white smelling blood in the ocean. The creeper creature was a intresting concept. He must eat certain body organs, to keep his going, otherwise he dies. The only thing I dont like about this film is that not much is known of the Creepers origin. Why is he damned to walk on the earth every 23 years for 23 days? But If anything, this movie is purchase worthy just for the stunning visuals and the shots of the monster.
In ALIENSRipley (Sigourney Weaver), the sole survivor from the original ALIEN, is awakened after 57 years of drifting through space, her stories disbelieved by Company executives who tell her that the alien's planet is now inhabited and colonized. When contact is suddenly lost with the colonists, Ripley returns to the planet with a squad of marines. Once on the planet, no survivors can be found except for Newt, a little girl who awakens motherly instincts in Ripley just in time for the acid-blooded aliens to attack in what quickly becomes a one-sided battle for sheer survival.
I do give many props to the original film ALIEN, but I have to say that the sequal trumps the original by miles.
1'st the story is classic, one consisting of a deep devious plot with several twists and turns to keep things interesting. Overall it's a rescue mission that turns into a survival one but several other stories unfold.
2nd, the acting for this type of film has still yet to be surpassed. Ripley paved the way for female badass heroines. Paxton gave one of the most memorable supporting roles of all times in any film. People today 15 years later are still quoting some of his lines as well as the classic "Get Away From Her You BITCH!!"
3rd the directing is a standard I hold all other films too to this date, The pace of the action was furious and this film started a momentum of it's own that seemed to build up steam throughout the entire course of the movie. Talk about being on the edge of your seat.
The visuals are still some of the best ever from hollywood,With not jut one horrific alien running around but hundreds and the sheer size and power of the incredible Queen Alien is enough to make it my favorite movie of all time! When watching this film you actually get the feeling you are on an alien world being pursued by a vicious alien species. Couldn't have been any better especially for the time this film was made.
Cloverfield is about Five young New Yorkers who throw their friend a going-away party the night that a monster the size of a skyscraper descends upon the city. Told from the point of view of their video camera, the film is a document of their attempt to survive the most surreal, horrifying event of their lives.
So when going to see movie we all knew it was a monster movie which would involve lots of chaos, screaming, destruction and mayhem. It provided all of that with gusto and I would find it difficult to make a movie of this genre follow a storyline other than that. Part of me appreciates the plot or lack there-of. True there is much left out and unaccounted for, but this also must be considered. The director was trying to put us in a first person POV and the characters had no clue what was going on so with that in mind why should the audience? The visuals were stunning. I would have to say this is the films strong point. No cheesy special effects; they really spent some money in that department. Both the large and small monsters were very life-like and believable. Overall I think that this film achieved what it set out to. A good watch and rental.
TREMORS is about Two country handymen who discover that their desolate town of Perfection, Nevada is infested with gigantic man-eating wormlike creatures that live below ground. The slightest vibration caused by movement attract the creatures to attack without warning, exploding out of the ground with jaws opened to swallow with deadly precision. The race is on to overcome these slimy subterraneans as the two unlikely heroes team up with a couple of zany characters,
Tremors wasn't much of a box office success but has since gone on to have a strong life on video, to the point where it even inspired other knowingly goofy creature features. The film's also got its own sequels, the first of which I remember as being pretty fun but certainly inferior. But overall with fun characters, a good amount of guns, humor, and tons of action, "Tremors" is a great movie for any fan of scary creature movies.
In The Thing Kurt Russell heads up an all-male cast, stuck and bored at a research centre in the wastes of Antarctica. But, when a wolf hound flees to their base, the men unwittingly play host to something monstrous, a malevolent alien that can take the form of anything it comes into contact with. An alien organism then infiltrates the Antarctic research station and takes over the crew at a cellular level - the cue for an orgy of some of the most gory and disturbing special effects ever put on the big screen.
Now I put this movie also on My Deadly Virus Movie Hub list because it has both. It is a sort of virus in the blood that turns people into these disgusting monsters. Now this film is probably as classic as you get because even years after it was releasedit still manages to keep you terrified and cringing from gore and total mayhem. This one me that i actually dont suggest you rent, I suggest you BUY!! A Supberb horror film to have in anyones movie collection.
Attack of the Killer Tomatoes is a music, comedy and spoof horror are all combined in this uniquely low-budget attack on conventional horror movies. When a high-level government experiment goes terribly awry a group of giant, mutated tomatoes roll through suburbia on a spree of mayhem and murder.
Now I know this is more a comedy then it is a horror movie but I got so many people sending me a message to add to my list that I just had to! This movie is one of the best stupid dumb crappiest movie ever made. This is a movie that you will either hate or love it. only people who like kung pow, super troopers, or not another teen movie would like this movie. I have to say that one of the most memorable scenes is when there is a whole group of people swimming and you get the whole jaws movie view of peoples feet and then you see a whole butt load of tomatoes coming to eat them. its hilarious.
The BLOB, is a remake of the 1958 horror sci-fi about a deadly blob from another planet which consumes everyone in its path. Teenagers try in vain to warn the townsfolk, who refuse to take them seriously. Until everyone in the town starts dieing horrific painful deaths and then its to late!!
A great 80's creature feature film! This film was a hell of a lot nastier than I had expected. And MAN did they make this remake brutal with the blob. That blob would beat the living crap out of everybody it attacked. Honestly the gore and effects are probably the main reason to watch this film but with that it makes it a good movie.
The Mist begins following a violent thunderstorm, artist David Drayton and a small town community come under vicious attack from creatures prowling in a thick and unnatural mist. Local rumors point to an experiment called the 'The Arrowhead Project' conducted at a nearby top-secret military base, but questions as to the origins of the deadly vapor are secondary to the group's overall chances for survival. Retreating to a local supermarket, Drayton and the survivors must face-off against each other before taking a united stand against an enemy they cannot even see.
Fans of King will love this flick, but, even King fans will shudder at the ending. You should know that it deviates from the original story (but then King fans already knew that would be the case). The adaptation was wonderfully done. The story line, the tensions, the terror--it was all top notch. The only, and I do mean, ONLY, disappointment was the ending. Of all the ways to end the movie--the director chose this one? It was sooooo bizarrely out of character with the individuals involved that it just fell flat and empty. But with all the crazy creatures in the movie it makes up for the ending bringing it an incredibly creative dynamic.
Always looking to add more movies to my list, leave a comment if you have any ideas for me, Thankyou :)
