With the creature feature Creature hitting cinemas September 9th, we figured this was the perfect opportunity to take a look back at The Scariest Creatures in Film. From Ridley Scott's classic Alien to horrifying beasts in less-than-classic films like Society, here are our picks for the creepiest monsters that defied conventional monster categorization (vampires, werewolves, zombies, and giant animals need not apply). They are, for lack of the better word, creatures.
HONORABLE MENTIONS: The Predator (more badass than scary), The Graboids from ‘Tremors,’ The Gremlins, The Ghoulies, The Nightbreed, the thing from the end of ‘The Evil Dead 2,’ Gwoemul from ‘The Host,’ the monster from ‘Cloverfield,’ the Gill-man from ‘The Creature from the Black Lagoon,’ the Bioraptors from ‘Pitch Black,’ the giant worm from ‘From Beyond,’ The Creeper from ‘Jeepers Creepers,’ Pumpkinhead, and Alex Winters from ‘Freaked.’
WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE SCARIEST CREATURE IN FILM?
