List Rules Vote up your favorite monster films that were released in the 1960s.

The ‘60s may have been about free love, burning bras and dodging the draft, but for a whole lot of people it was about sitting in the dark watching some of the most creative monsters in history. On this list of the best 60s monster movies, you’ll find the film that started another genre completely – zombies! George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead wasn't just one of the best monster movies from the 1960s, but one of the most iconic and influential movies of all time.
 

The ‘60s also saw the continuation of the Godzilla brand, on this list of 60s monster films you’ll find King Kong vs. Godzilla, Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster, Son of Godzilla and Godzilla’s Revenge. And don’t miss two comedic takes on the genre, Roman Polanski’s The Fearless Vampire Killers and the animated Mad Monster Party
