Godzilla is by far the best monster ever along with the following:

Rodan
Planet of the Dinosaurs

Re: Big Animal Monster Movies

no one got Tremors on there list.

i say check out Tremors 1 if you have not see it
here the plot of the movie
A small town gradually becomes aware of a strange creature which picks off people one by one. But what is this creature, and where is it? At the same time, a seismologist is working in the area, she detects _tremors_. The creature lives underground, and can 'pop up' without warning. Trapped in their town, the town-folk have no escape

it one of the best funny/horror movie ever,
i love this movie when I was 5 and 15 years later, i still love it

Re: Big Animal Monster Movies

Tremors was a good film Bassi, I bet you like Eight Legged Freaks, that was pretty good too.

Re: Big Animal Monster Movies

Don't forget Food of the Gods.

Re: Big Animal Monster Movies

What about Anaconda and Lake Placid those were pretty good. Well Lake Placid was good anyway.

Re: Big Animal Monster Movies

Completely forgot about Tremors and for me the whole series..  Anaconda and Lake Placid...eh.

What is Food of the Gods about Greg?

Re: Big Animal Monster Movies

Wasn't that the giant rat movie where people were trapped in a cabin fighting off a horde of giant mutant rats. If I remember right the FX were kind of cheesy but it was a pretty good flick.

Re: Big Animal Monster Movies

Thats the one Hard2Kill, it is full of cheesy goodness.

Re: Big Animal Monster Movies

What about Night of the Lepus? You can't go wrong with mutant bunnies.

Re: Big Animal Monster Movies

The Blob and it's subsequent Chuck Russel remake are always fun.  Avoid the Larry Hagman-directed sequel "Beware! The Blob!" like the plague, though.
