If you’ve followed Sci-Fi & Scary for any length of time, it’s no secret that we absolutely love B-Movies around here. These (mostly) low-budget purveyors of cheese, chuckles, and charnel put us both in our happiest of happy spots. In our humble opinions, you haven’t experienced true film bliss until you’ve spent at least a few hours rotting your brain on these preposterous plots.
So, for this Top Ten Tuesday, we’ve rounded up our favorite fiends and most magnificent mutations of the B-Movie screen. (All the links will take you to IMDB.)
Best B-Movie Monsters: Snakes
There aren’t nearly as many truly awesomely horrible snake movies as there needs to be. At least not ones that are very well-known. If you feel the need to expand your repertoire, though, we definitely recommend starting with the movies below. (After that, MoviesGalore44 has a great list of snake movies you can work your way through.)
Best B-Movie Monsters: Spiders
Arachnophobia is the King of Spider Movies. We all know that. But it’s actually legitimately scary at points, whereas the movies we’ve listed below just weave a web of wackiness with an apparent zeal.
Best B-Movie Monsters: Sharks
Believe it or not, there are other bad shark movies out there that are much better than Sharknado. The devils of the deep practically have their own sub-genre of sci-fi/horror films. The thought of these leering leviathans is enough to make sure some of us can never truly enjoy the ocean. So it would only make sense then that they feature in so many of these silly stories.
No doubt there are many lovers of the genre would argue belong on here, but these are the ones that really tickle our toes.
We’d like to give special mention to gems such as Lake Placid and Deep Blue Sea which were a little too good to earn themselves a place on this list. In our hearts, though, they are amongst our favorite monster movies.
