I know a lot of people seem to disagree but I personally thought the shark in JAWS was excellent.

it got progressively worse from JAWS 2 onward. also new fangled CGI sharks are generally rubbish

Firstly all 3 of Chaos Theories picks are perfect examples of practical fx.

This infamous kill from Maniac still holds up today.

Fulci240 took the words outta' my mouth with the mentin of the transformation scene in American Werewolf In London.  And yeah, when I saw Maniac in the theatre and got to see the shotgun scene for the first time, that really blew ME away too!

Allegedly, Savini was the stuntman for the scene, blowing the head off of his own dummy, with great effect. And in another mention of Savini's talents, I nominate the zombie who lost the top of his head to the chopper blade in the original Dawn Of The Dead.

Hey, when you compare it to the rubber shark that hung off of Adam West's leg in the 1966 Batman movie, the Jaws shark is very credible  BounceGiggle

The scene is Moses parting the Red Sea in The Ten Commandments (1956) directed by Cecil B. DeMille and starring Charlton Heston, Yul Brynner, Anne Baxter, Edward G. Robinson and John Derek.

I must mention:
 Ben-Hur, for matte paintings (1959);
Journey to the Center of the Earth (1959), for having the only realistic lizard-dinosaurs you'll ever see;
The pre-special edition Star Wars trilogy (1970's-80's) for spaceships, and puppetry;
E.T., for puppetry;
Indiana Jones I, II, II;
Back to the Future I,II,II;
Planet of Dinosaurs, for stop-motion that still looks good (1979);
and King Kong (1930's).
