List Rules Vote up your favorite monster films that were released in the 2000s.

As you’ll note on this list of the top 2000s monster movies, the longer a genre exists, the more liberties a filmmaker will take. Two of the more interesting entries you'll find here are the animated comedies Monsters, Inc. and Monsters vs. Aliens, which were both very funny and charming children's movies that adults loved too.

Also among the films on this list of the best ‘00s monster films you’ll find the zombie comedy Zombieland, the eerie and all too possible 28 Days Later, and the comics-based Hellboy, featuring a monster as its main character. And make sure to check out Shadow of the Vampire, a movie about the making of the classic vampire film Nosferatu.
 

So, which of the movies on this list of good ‘00s monster films left you wanting more? Vote up the top monster movies from the 2000s and feel free to add any movies that we might have left off.
