Top 10 Giant Movie Monsters

I incidentally watched a clip about the Top 10 Giant Movie Monsters on Youtube.

Top 10 Giant Movie Monsters

Here is the complete list.

  1. Tadpole Thing - The Host (2005)
  2. The Kraken - Clash of the Titans (1981)
  3. Brontosaurus - The Lost World (1925)
  4. Reptilicus - Reptilicus (1961)
  5. Stay Puff - Ghostbusters (1984)
  6. The Beast - The Beast from 20000 Fathoms (1953)
  7. Gamera - Gamera Series (1965~2006)
  8. Godzilla - Godzilla Series (1954~2004)
  9. King Kong - King Kong (1933)
  10. The Giant Claw - The Giant Claw (1957)

I still remember how I was amazed when I saw Gamera in big screen and I couldn’t stop laughing when I saw Stay Puff stumbling alone the main street.

But I wonder which monster is the very first movie monster. I bet it’s the dragon in Fritz Lang’s Die Nibelungen: Siegfried.

What about Kitten Kong from The Goodies?

Birth of a Nation had the Klan. No, wait: In that moview they were supposed to be the good guys.

I see they have Harryhausen’s Kraken in there. His films are a guilty pleasure of mine. for example. Nobody watches that film for anything except the skeletons at the end. I’ve seen that film shitloads of times and can never remember which guy Jason is.

I thought Gertie (1914) was the first one.

She’s not scary though.

I watched Cloverfield this weekend and they had a good one, but they didn’t show it clearly enough.

Triffids as in Day of the Triffids … (TV_series

Yeah Cloverfield, why do monsters never attack on a sunny clear day?
