Top 20 Scariest Movie Monsters of All Time


Cinematic monsters come in many shapes and sizes, from amorphous blobs to giant apes to Swamp Things. Some are manifestations of their designers’ deepest hang ups or emblematic of the biggest fears of society at large.

Others are uncomplicated beasts that desire to kill either for food or just for the fun of it.

Obviously, in putting together this list of the best monster movies ever made, we had a lot of options to choose from. So we put a few parameters in place. First off, no zombies or vampires.

There are simply too many, and those warrant lists of their own. Secondly, no ‘humans are the real monsters’ stuff. (Sorry, Freddy, Jason, Michael and Henry from Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer.

You’re monsters, but you’re not monsters, if you catch our drift.) Instead, we opted for all the killer rabbits, killer plants, killer fish, killer clowns, killer aliens and killer giant sandworms. Here are the best monster movies of all-time.

These terrifying creatures will haunt your nightmares! For this list, we’ll be looking at the most frightening monsters in movie history.
