Many people consider this a horror film


admittedly I'm not one of those people. But this movie still has some of the best CGI in it.


That was the first thing I thought of, and yeah, not technically horror. 
It is interesting though, that a movie that's almost 20 years old has better looking CGI than movies that came out 6 months ago.  Shows what can happen when you use technology as a creative tool rather than a replacement for the creative process.  (Guillermo Del Toro seems to grasp this concept pretty well, so does Ridley Scott to some extent.)  Which is part of why this question is so hard to answer.  An effect, in and of itself, can't really "fix" a movie.

One monster with extra cheese, hold the plot.

I think the quirk with horror creatures/figures is that they're most effective when you can't see them or don't know where they are at any given moment. From my viewpoint a practically done monster or cosmetic effect has the same impact as either being done digitally. Sounds that make you jump and sudden horrific images produce the scare, even a chase scene thought for the most part this is typically the dorkiest part of any horror movie. The creature itself can look unsettling but, at least for a monster lover like myself, the resulting emotional response is almost always "that's awesome!" rather than "#$%^!!! OMG!!!".

I can think of plenty of scifi, action, and fantasy movies where a creature made the movie great but it'll always be tougher to fill that order in horror because because an effective horror doesn't give you scares, it takes them from your mind. Muhahahaha!

I think The Lord of the Rings trilogy has some creepy CGI, particularly the giant spider.  No, it's not a horror movie, but it does have some effective FX, even if it is slow.

    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.
