What with the 100 lists being popular (maybe one day we'll have our own "100 essential b-movie '100 essentials' lists"!), I thought why not do one dedicated to the Amazing monsters of b-moviedom.

Rules: (1) Be sure to NUMBER your entries. It helps to cut down on the confusion, especially for me since I'll be the one sorting out the list. (2) When I say "monsters", I mean it in the literal sense. No human characters, no matter how monstrous or evil they might be. However, supernatural slasher characters who do superhuman things (Michael Myers, Jason Voorhees, etc.) are eligible. (3) ONE monster per reply. If you shovel out four or five picks, only the first one listed will count. And now, for the first entrant...

2 - The "Id" Monster from Forbidden Planet. A 50s monster that makes an impression even today.

The creature from The Bone Snatcher.  Can't find a descent picture, but it was made of ants that used human skeletons as well, a skeleton.  There was one scene where a guy looks at the thing through his rifle scope and it just looked cool as hell.

7. Gamera
The giant turtle you all know, and love.
It can travel in space, it eats fire, and it is the friend of all children.

Gamera could kick that lame Cloverfield monster's ass.*hint to Matt Reaves*

10 - The Blob - although I can't decide. The 1988 Blob might be a more amazing monster, but 1958 was the original, classic Blob, and more of a traditional b-movie. Thoughts?

I love all the entries so far folks, great list! Though Jack didn't number his entry, I can't pass up the Bone Snatcher ants, so we're actually up to number 15 now, so..

No.15 - The Brain - Many times have there been killer brain monsters in movies (though not nearly enough for my liking...), and though I was going to nominate Gor as the first for the list, it's the evil '80s killer brain monster that takes the gold medal in my heart.


Also, I enjoyed Jack's suggestion so much that I found the trailer for The Bone Snatcher and took a pair of screen grabs so everybody could see the creatures' coolness for themselves:

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
