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

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.

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)

Them! (1954)
The Blob (1958)

There's also British-made The Abominable Snowman (1957) which is seriously chilling

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

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.

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

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.
