Top 5 Movie Monsters

There’s a new Lair of the Beasts post from me at, in which I talk about my top 5 movie monsters. Here’s how it starts…

“‘So, what are your favorite monster movies?’ That was a question put to me in January of this year, when I was lecturing on the mystery of Bigfoot at the Austin, Texas-based Museum of the Weird. Well, first off, I can tell you which ones aren’t my favorites.

“You know the ones I mean: I’m talking about those cheaply-made, predictable productions filled with awful special-effects and over-the-hill actors who have gone to seed and can’t get work on anything else. They’re on the TV all the time and I make sure I avoid each and every one of them like the plague. Why do these production-companies even bother?

“But, with that said, I most certainly do have some firm favorites when it comes to Hollywood’s monsters. In no particular order (since it depends on the mood I’m in when I’m watching them), here’s my top 5.”

And here they are…

    Interesting choices. For me there’s only two that stand out……’King’ Kong and the shark from Jaws. Everything else pales, although I do love me some of those on the list as well.
