Top Ten Scariest Movie Monsters

So often the perfect ingredient in a good (typically cheesy) horror movie is a fantastically monstrous beast on the prowl for blood. This list compiles the best scary movie monsters ever to terrorize teens on the screen!

21 Clover

Matt Reeve's 'Cloverfield' (2008) was a refreshing return to monster movie form during a decade where these types of movies didn't really exist (we had remakes of 'Godzilla' and 'King Kong' in 1998 and 2005, respectively, but both used pre-established monsters while Clover was something new and unseen). The best thing about it was it's mysterious nature. It never really clearly showed its face over the course of the movie, although we got a good look at him once, and that was plenty enough. I always say that the scariest things in life are the things you don't (really) see. - BKAllmighty

22 David Kessler's Werewolf

When one thinks of a movie werewolf, if it's not Lon Chaney Jr's 1941 version, it's probably the werewolf seen in 1981's 'An American Werewolf in London'. As poor David Kessler suffers through the film haunted by his dead friend and frightening nightly visions of he and his family being butchered by Nazi monsters, he is also spending every full moon-lit night as a massive, hairy beast of a werewolf slaughtering British locals like a kid eats M&Ms. The sequence where we really see his transformation fully happen is easily the highlight of the film but every waking moment of monster mayhem is a "feast" for the eyes (mind you, a horrifying one). - BKAllmighty

23 Velociraptors (Jurassic Park)
24 Freddy Krueger Freddy Krueger Fred "Freddy" Krueger is the main antagonist of the A Nightmare on Elm Street film series. He first appeared in Wes Craven's A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984).

So scary he had to appear twice

25 The Mummy (1932)
26 Slappy the Dummy

Really creepy. He has the ability to escape the book himself in Goosebumps.

27 Godzilla Godzilla Godzilla is a giant monster originating from a series of tokusatsu films of the same name from Japan.
28 The Indominus Rex
29 Doomsday (Batman vs. Superman) Doomsday (Batman vs. Superman) Doomsday is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, usually depicted as an adversary of Superman.

Doomsday is not scary (maybe a bit)

30 Michael Myers Michael Myers Michael Myers is a character from the Halloween series of slasher films. He first appears in John Carpenter's Halloween as a young boy who murders his older sister, then fifteen years later returns home to murder more teenagers.
31 Jason Voorhees Jason Voorhees Jason Voorhees is a character from the Friday the 13th series. He first appeared in Friday the 13th as the young son of camp cook-turned-murderer, Mrs. Voorhees.
32 Trantor (Ernest Scared Stupid)
33 Weeping Angel

Holy cow, I've never seen anything scarier! Doctor Who's weeping angels are incredibly fast statues that oh, by the way, move towards you when you're not looking. When they get close enough, they bare their fangs and scare the absolute crap out of you before sending you back in time. However, the weeping angels have been known to kill people by snapping their necks. Definitely the scariest Dr. Who monster, and arguably the scariest movie/T.V. show monster ever!

34 Giant Ants (Them!)
35 Valak (The Conjuring 2)
36 Pumpkinhead
