Monsters : Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

I have On Demand through cable with about 5,000 horror movies and it seems like monsters are not the most popular genre and yet they are my fave. I don't care if they are old or new films.

I love ones like Alien, The Thing, The Descent, The Relic. Preferably with a scary monster that goes around chasing everybody wreaking havoc. I've probably seen most of them already, but I know there's probably a few hidden gems I haven't discovered.

Oh and just not The Blob. I've been terrified of that thing ever since I was a kid and it still gives me periodic nightmares….

House (1986)
Trollhunter (2010)
Tremors (1990)
The Howling (1981)

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

Thanks Zolo. The Howling was good, but not sure I've seen the others.

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

The other 3 are quite good. I think u might enjoy them. I'll try to think of some more and post them here.

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

i endorse the golden age of monster.horror: black and white 1930-1950s classics.these are as much psychological reaction you the viewer feel and the physical stuff on screen.

dracu;a, Frank, wolf, invisibles and all the sequels are always worth a watch. i think the acting, writing, and directing all top shelf. unlike today and digital trickery, those films had to rely on the performers' skills to scare you.

1950s more about political monsters and monsters created by the then very real threat of atomic mutation.

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

I think I've seen that some of those oldies are on here. I'll have to check though.

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

Not really Panther. I've mentioned the best already multiple times.

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

Stick around here until Mechanic kicks off.

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

Have you seen the 1986 remake of Invaders From Mars? Haven’t seen it in years, but seem to recall that it wasn’t too bad as far as remakes go. Looks like you can watch it for free, and I provided a short sample clip. Just don’t blame me if it sucks :)






If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

I'll check that out. Thanks!

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

Nightbreed (1990)

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

I may have seen that one I have to look.

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

It gets darker and creepier towards the end, IIRC. It was pretty good.

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

Leviathan

DeepStar Six

The Ghost and The Darkness (this is actually about 2 Man-Eating Lions)

Predator

The Thing (2011)

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

Leviathan was scary and disturbing at the same time. Loved The Thing 2011. Haven't seen the other ones.

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

You have never seen "PREDATOR" ?

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

I've seen the Alien vs Predator series, but not the Predator movies by themselves.

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

"It Came From Uranus" (1936)

You don’t know the power of the Dork Side.

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

Lair of the White Worm (1988)

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

The Host. A decent South Korean monster flick. Bet you ain't seen that one.

Providing nuke style solutions to hand grenade size problems since 1999.

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

I have not seen that one I don't think. Will check it out.

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

Thanks for all the recommendations guys! I've made a list and will check them out. :)

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

Every Godzilla movie ever made, except that 1998 trash with Matthew Broderick.



Groovy

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

Yeah that 1998 one was pretty bad.

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

Oh it was awful!

When I was in HS, I used to have one of these. I miss it lol

It's Going To Be A Bumpy Night!

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

Panther, PumpkinHead is a terrifying monster movie. The design is fearsome.

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

I love Pumpkinhead! I watch it every Halloween.

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

That's the perfect day to watch it, too.


Some others that scare me




This guy changing in the movie The Howling scared the crap out of me. It still does. It's mesmerizing. You want to look away but you're too frozen in terror like her. And the way he was talking to her as he was changing. He wanted her to stay right there and not run. She was his prey.

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

Yes the werewolf transformation in The Howling was one of the best I've seen.

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

😎

If you haven't seen The Monster yet. You should. It's survival horror monsters movie, and I thought that the relationship between a mom and daughter was bittersweet.


Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

Yes I loved that movie.

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

Right?? It's actually one of my favorites. I don't tell that to people often because I have that tough girl image. But this movie had heart and soul. I cried at the end.

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

Yes it was actually more of a heartfelt drama then a full monster movie which is what I liked about it.

Re: Can anyone recommend some good monster movies?

Srsly go watch love and monsters on netflix rn! It has cool looking monster insects, Micheal Rooker and lots of awkward comedy!
