Another vote for Count Orlock.


He and Godzilla are the two go-to movies for drive in skirmishes.

So, my second nomination is Godzilla (1954). The best looking 'zilla and … THE road!

Frankenstein's monster (Boris Karloff).


P.S. Karloff (William Henry Pratt) was a cousin of Italian comics creator Hugo Pratt.

Creature from the Black Lagoon.

Hiter from the great dictator, the truest monster of them all….

I'm actually not a huge fan of those classic monster movies, but I do have a sore spot for Dracula(Christopher Lee)

15mm and 28mm Fanatik28 Apr 2019 9:52 a.m. PST

The Blob. After watching that as a kid I stopped eating Jello.

Glengarry528 Apr 2019 10:37 a.m. PST

Godzilla! I named my cat Gojira (the orginial Japanese name for Godzilla).

Another vote for THEM!

If I had to pick a particular singular monster it would be the Blob.

chuck05 Fezian28 Apr 2019 1:14 p.m. PST

Creature From the Black Lagoon was my favorite as a kid.

Joan Crawford with a wire clothes hanger.

Musketballs28 Apr 2019 4:37 p.m. PST

If this was extended to the Sixties, it would have to be the Carpet Monster from 'The Creeping Terror'.

But for the 50's…got to be the Tingler.

djbthesecond28 Apr 2019 4:53 p.m. PST

The 50ft woman…

Narratio28 Apr 2019 7:24 p.m. PST

Lon Chaney as Phantom of the Opera (1920's)
Karloff as Frankenstien (1930's)
The 1940's are tough, not much class there. So Lon Chaney Jr as the Wolfman.
Godzilla as… Godzilla (1950's onwards)

Gotta pull for the Wol'Man

Coelacanth07 May 2019 5:26 a.m. PST

Creature effects by Ray Harryhausen

Honorable mention: The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms, 1953.

Not by Harryhausen -- see the difference?

Dishonorable mention: The Giant Claw, 1957.

I always liked the Creature from the Black Lagoon. If nothing else the human female he had a predilection for was a "quite a dish"!!!!

And very nice Drive In "e" !!! thumbs up

"The Tingler!" scared the HELL outa me as a 11-12 year old.

No longer interested05 Jun 2019 6:52 a.m. PST

Aliens!. Specifically: Martians!.

I remember getting scared by the 1953 movie: "invaders from Mars" as a kid (in the 70s).

War of the worlds also had good scary moments.

JimSelzer06 Jun 2019 6:50 p.m. PST
