Can we have a monster movie thread?
Just rewatched Del Toro's mimic. Still pretty good
>Good performances all around
>Spooky bugs, great concept and design
>Dated CGI but thankfully only used for wide shots
>Tons of religious imagery (typical Del Taco), gives it a unique look tho
Bumping with another one
The Host (2006)
>Fish monster looks great, actually looks like a mutation/abomination instead of a well designed killing machine
>Dysfunctional Korean family humor's kinda funny
Krampus wasn't that scary, but great practical effects and monster designs.
I remember watching Mimic on TV when I was younger. The dead kid will be something I'll always remember because I'd never thought about someone dying so young. Watched it recently and I loved the monster design. Also appreciate it a bit more.
>watch Snowpiercer for Song
Night of the Creeps was cheesy, but fun
Shivers. Old Cronenberg is best Cronenberg. Rabid is better imho, but it's not exactly monsters.
Incubus (1982) The lone monster is off-screen most of the time, but I still liked it.
Independence Day had a really cool Alien design. The autopsy scene still holds up in terms of suspense and effects.
I just hope they don't fuck it up too much in the sequel.
Creature movie subgenre is best horror genre. Fuck the human/serial killer/zombie subgenre.
Alien (1979) - Aliens (1986)
The Thing (1982)
The Burrowers (2008)
Black Sheep (2006)
Galaxy of Terror (1981)
Critters (1986) - Critters II (1988)
DeepStar Six (1989)
Forbidden World (1982)
Bump for fuck sake. To get a movie discussion thread above the fucking filth that is /tv/. Meme threads are bumped constantly and threads like this drop off the board quickly.
Neither one was The Thing and Mac was in the sequel video game at the end.
>mfw it snows like hell outside, boot up both The Thing movies just for the mood and enjoy them both equally
I also downloaded The Relic, about to watch it later
the actual movie is as colorful and pretty as the cover
>tfw watching a giant warthog movie and suddenly it goes full patrician
Well Japanese movies would be an obvious choice.
But I think some American monster movies from the 50s are real masterpieces of this genre.
The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms (1953) (and actually most Harryhausen movies)
The Blob (1958)
There's also British-made The Abominable Snowman (1957) which is seriously chilling
The Gate did really have creative monsters, but they were scary as fuck
Underrated. The original tv-movie is solid too.
Question about MIMIC 3.
Did it really end with
the guy surviving an explosion in a fridge?
I watched it incredibly high and it was the comfiest shit ever, but I don't remember much of it.
>Deep Rising will never get a sequel
Fuck, I really wanted to see what's on that island
I wasn't even aware they made sequels. I read about some of it and it says the bugs now have realistic looking human skin? haha
another "buncha guys chasing monsters around town" movie, also Monster Squad
og predator design just walking on through
Anyone ever see monster man? I saw it late late night one time on scyfy years ago. Dude and his buddy on roadtrip pick up some chick hitchhiking. Can't remember much else plot wise, but there's one scene they go into a bar and everyone has a leg or arm or multiple limbs missing. Later you find out they all "donate" them to the creature so he'll spare them or he takes them or something. There's this unkillable creepy ass looking thing that drives a monster truck. It chains some guy up like on a dog run, maybe two guys, and runs over ones head with the massive wheels. Then the other dudes legs. Its pretty brutal and scared the shit out of younger me. It was a tense flick for scyfy, but like I said its been years and I was a kid
>always loved giant crocodile movies, no matter how shitty
>They captured a giant croc in Philippines
>fucking pinoys didn't take care of it and it died
Well like I said I don't totally remember if they offer up their parts willingly or if he took them and just let them live. I do remember the scene is tense as shit and everyone in the bar makes a move on the main characters
most recent one I saw was Krampus, which I can only recommend for the beginning and the design of the Krampus himself - his little helpers are cool, but most of the film is fighting off monster versions of toys, which wasn't great.
>In 2006, "Wizard" magazine made a list of the 100 Greatest Villains of All Time, Dracula was ranked as #30 on the list. But, surprisingly, it was for Duncan Regehr's performance in this film. His performance was chosen over all other versions of the character. Regehr's Dracula is still considered to be one the absolute best interpretations of the character.
Fun fact about Mimic, OP.
Del Toro's father was kidnapped by a cartel down in Guadalajara during the filming, so his best friend James fuckin Cameron just gave him the million to give to the cartel and everyone got out alive.
>AND WHAT THE HELL IS THAT SMELL?
>superior to Christopher Lee
Talk shit about my mobile cellular device
Nah, you are talking out of your ass, every "famous" creature had 10-20 prototype versions before final was chosen, you do know that whole Alien design was supposed to be vagina's and dicks?
Not only that, they had to move in the rythm of the sex. Pictures dont give credit to what Gaiger had in his sick head. It was felatio from anal to oral to vulva all mixed together
>paying absolute attention to a movie i've seen numerous times
>not dualboxing for ultimate media intake
i believe the shithead here, sir, is you
oof. big mistake
prime Bacon, based original movie, fun turn of the decade fashion. what was the last Marvel movie you saw boyo?
>Nah, you are talking out of your ass, every "famous" creature had 10-20 prototype versions before final was chosen
The difference is, anon's pic was the final Predator design, well into production - they actually started shooting with it, with none other than JCVD in the costume.
Based James Cameron saved the production's ass when he came up with the mandible look while taking a flight next to Stan Winston.
Man Cameron is based as fuck.
What is his next movie? I have been out of the loop.
Im no fan of Avatar, but that was based as hell. He didnt even ask for the money back. He just gave it to Guillermo. How fucking nice is that?
It really would not surprise me if Jim helped GDT behind the scenes on some of his bigger projects.
This is another cool new monster movie.
Them! is a personal favorite, as is The Monolith Monsters, The Magnetic Monster, It Came From Beneath The Sea, Kronos, and Five Million Years to Earth (a.k.a. Quatermass And The Pit)
What about Avatar 2?
I dont mind low budget films, thanks for the recomendation.
Body Horror Incarnate.
I was too young to watch The Fly when it came out, had nightmares for weeks. Re-watched it a couple years ago; turns out I'm still too young to watch The Fly. God in heavens it's not only a brilliant horror or monster movie, it's a brilliant movie Period. Great drama, some humor, some action, some science fiction, you end up feeling sad for one of the most horrible creatures ever described, it's got it all.
>I'm an insect who dreamed he was a man and loved it... but now the dream is over, and the insect is awake. I will hurt you if you stay.
Can anyone help me identify this monster movie from my childhood? The details are kind of blurry but the plot was basically it was about this guy and his kid that go to an island research lab with this bitch whos doing experiments on sharks and eventually the shark gets turned into a shark monster thing that can walk on land. Please anyone know what I'm talking about?
