If we're going to exapand the list to include cryptids how about the Mokele-Mbembe from folklore of west-central Africa?  It's described as a "half elephant, half dragon" creature that modern cryptozooligists seem to think may be account of a sauropod, so I suppose technically that would make it a dinosaur, but just imagine the crazy CGI critter a sciffy original movie would give us for this thing!!

Already been done.  It was called Baby:  Secret of the Lost Legend.  It was an old disney movie where the dinosaurs were played by unconvincing puppets and guys in suits.

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

The Mokele-mbembe is too tame.  If we're gonna have a movie about a cryptid, how about the MONGOLIAN DEATH WORM?  Now there would be a cool movie monster!

I'm not sure if it has or not but I'd love to see a movie with The Minotaur in it.

I believe there was a Sinbad (or other Harryhausen movie) that had one.

Also "The Chronicles of Narnia: the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" has a Minotaur in it. Actually, he's the leader of the White Queen's army, and he is one bad dude.

The Sinbad movie of which you speak is the GOLDEN VOYAGE of SINBAD...I've fond memories of seeing it at the Strand in the 70's.

Also...if I recall...a 1953 movie called the MAZE involved a large maze...and at the end of it lurked a Minataur! (I saw it as a kid...but my memory is hazy....I AM sure of the Minataur ....I'm pretty sure it's the MAZE (1953). I gotta check it up in some of my old film books.

Small correction:  the Sinbad film with the mechanical minotaur was "Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger."  I do not remember any other Harryhausen film with a minotaur.

Of course...you are correct! I'm thinking of the Cenataur!!!!

But...it got me to do so research...and Peter Cushing starred in a little known flik-(by me,at least!) called the DEVIL's MEN...aka the LAND of the MINOTAUR (1976)

Also...and I remember a pic from this in an old FM mag...a peplum type Itailion film...the MINOTAUR (1960).

A Disney film you say?

Never heard of it.

Sadly most creatures of traditional folklore and myth have been thoroughly mined for, if not always well represented by, cinema.    That's why I chose an obscure cryptid.  Sure it's all been done before, but then again no it hasn't.  Same with the story of the Minotaur.  We've seen it, yet we haven't really gotten the full story.  Google Pasiphae and cross referece with Daedelus and/or "white bull".

Sadly given the subject matter we're not likely to see this particular myth brought to life any time soon.  Shame.  There's a excellent Milo Manara graphic novel that would make a great movie adaptation.   Then again I think the same of his GULLIVERA.  TeddyR

Alas the MONGOLIAN DEATH WORM has also technically been done.  The movie was called DUNE.   Or was it TREMORS?  Either way those were movies with big f---ing deadly worms!  Wink

But I agree.  A movie specifically about the MONGOLIAN DEATH WORM would be fun.

This movie is actually quite good for a Disney feature.  Back when it was released, there were some "concerned" parents who were whining not about the machine guns or violence towards the end, but about the tribeswomen's breasts!  Did they want them wearing Victorian Era dresses or something!?!

Anyways, the should make a movie about the water panther or Dohbar-Chu.  Giant killer otters seem like a fun idea.

Especially when the giant killer otters grab a person, flip onto their back, and then crack the human's skull open against a rock balanced on the otter's stomach.  Or maybe the giant mutant otters could naturally have armored plates on their stomachs.

I remember seeing "Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend" in the theater.  William Katt insinuating a bit of hanky-panky with Sean Young really freaked me out.

Say what now?

Speaking of rare seldom heard of cryptids have cats with wings appeared in any movie?  I've always been fascinated by those reports.

Yep, occasionally I'll see a news report about a winged cat - doubters usually try to explain it away with some nonsense about "matted fur".

My vote for a cryptid in need of some movie exposure is De Loy's Ape (Ameranthropoides loysi), supposedly a South American great ape. It's certainly NOT a spider monkey with its tail hidden.



When explorer François de Loys came upon a couple of these creatures roaming the jungles of Columbia the apes responded by flinging feces at him. Typical.  Lookingup
