Best Monster Movies

This list compiles the greatest monster movies ever made.

The Top Ten

1 Godzilla (1954)

A great movie. Awesome effects and a good message.

A small evolution towards terror

This is the Best! Should be #1!

So good

2 Jurassic Park

For years, I wondered if Hollywood could ever make a realistic looking dinosaur movie. Then Jurassic Park came out and it exceeded my expectations by a mile! Great all around movie.

I like dinosaurs and best film

3 Alien

Really good movie with one of the best movie posters I have ever seen


Pretty good and nasty

4 Frankenstein (1931)

One of the best films every made. Such a classic!

5 Godzilla (2014)

Very nice reboot.

6 Jaws

This film has many bites

A fun and gory film

7 Jurassic World
8 Gremlins

Mell made classic. Gizmo is so cute!

They're based on the Gremlins and Hopkinsville goblin encounter.

9 Godzilla: King of the Monsters

This will be very high

10 The Thing (1982)

Conducted much horror and suspense

The Contenders

11 King Kong (2005)

I love this movie. It is handled so well. I liked the original fine, but it isn't the classic everyone says it is. This movie is everything I wanted the original to be. Skull Island is more intimidating. The action is much better. The characters are more interesting. Kong is at his best. His relationship with Ann is well done. This is an amazing film, and definitely my favorite monster movie and second favorite film of all time.

A master copy well made and well directed
