The Monster Movie’s heyday was the fifties with creatures from black lagoons, blobs of goo, and all manner of science fiction/horror crossovers that screened on big outdoor drive-ins across America.
While we don’t see as many monster-flicks these days, there are still some fantastic movies from the last few years to check out. Humour is a big part of the monster genre - sometimes even on purpose!
Here’re a fun bunch of links to trailers, scripts, and scenes that’ll give you a taste of monster without the hair-ball scare after taste:
- Teenwolf (Trailer)
- Ghostbusters (Trailer)
- Godzilla (Wikipedia)
- Mel Brook’s Young Frankestein (Script)
- Angry Red Planet (Scene with Rat Bat Monster (so good))
- Predator (Preview)
- Tremors (IMDB)
- The Mummy (First Mummy scene)
- The Fly (Compare and contrast 1958 version with 1986 reboot)
- Alien v Predator (Fight scene)
