I've got a soft spot for the Aussie film "Razorback" about a giant, fast moving wild boar on the rampage in the Outback. I also derive plenty of enjoyment from "Alligator".

As I've said before here, "Night of the Lepus" pretty much tops the genre --

I'd give "Megalon 3" a vote too, though --

Giant killer bunnies are one thing, but badly enlarged Great White Sharks are something else entirely.  Both films full of cheesy goodness --

   There's a lot of good ones out there. I love Robert Forster in Alligator and I also like Swarm and Pirahna and of course Shatner in Kingdom of Spiders. There's also a littel film called Day of the Animals. It's got cougars, grizzlies and Leslie Nielsen

The original Willard. A friend brought a bag of mice that he bought from a local petshop and dropped them from the balcony during the scene when the rats eat Ernest Borgnine. He practically emptied the theatre. Good times.

A tossup between "Strays" (1991), with killer house cats, and "Squirm" (1976), with killer earthworms. Of the two, "Strays" is slightly more plausible. Anybody who's ever lived with a cat knows they want to kill you and might be capable of it. But earthworms? What exactly is it they're supposed to do to you when they attack?

It's been a number of years since I saw "Squirm", but I think they were mutated by electricity(!?!) when a power line goes down, and they develop nasty pincers.  "They bite!"  was one of the taglines of the film, I seem to remember.   Some people eat them by accident in salads, and they burrow out from the inside.  Plus they eat people who fall on them.  I recall it had some good unintended laughs along with some intentional humor, and parts were genuinely suspenseful.

Hard to pick one, but I have a soft spot for Kingdom of the Spiders. I have good memories of watching it with my best friend as a kid, and thinking it was a kick-ass movie, and of checking it out later and finding a lot of unintentionally funny stuff in it. Good memories, cheesy fun, and I can watch it again and again. I guess its my favourite.

I believe it wasn't earthworms but rather bloodworms shown in that movie. Bloodworms are big, nasty-looking and have teeth.

Apparently, you can find anything at all on YouTube these days -- Bloodworms!
But weren't the "Squirm!" worms thick and black?  I seem to remember thinking they'd made them out of snorkling hose or something similar.  The edible ones were probably molded from liquorice --
I just thought of another fave:  "Them!".  Can't beat that scene with the giant puppet ant stading over a pile of skulls --

I remember them being reddish brown, but I can't say for sure. The closeups of the ones with teeth were bloodworms.

The Wikipedia entry for bloodworms actually mentions Squirm. Apparently, they used some 250,000 live bloodworms in that movie, in addition to all the surgical tubing.

Attack of the Crab Monsters (1957)  - classic! What's not to love about giant, intelligent, 'talking', brain-eating crabs?

    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.
