The Best Monster Movies

List Criteria: Only movies with monsters as characters

A list of the best monster movies of all time. Monster movies have been with us for over a century now, starting with Thomas Edison's 1910 "Frankenstein". While every genre is included in this list, monster movies tend to focus on horror, science fiction, and fantasy. Often, the genre depends on the monster itself and its origin. Trolls, Bigfoots, and other legendary monsters are likely to be fantasy, whereas space aliens are likely to be science fiction. In fact, the novel "Frankenstein" is widely considered the birth of science fiction. Japan has a well known affinity for giant monsters, which they refer to as "Kaiju". Whatever your monster movie tastes may be, there is bound to be a monster film on this list of the best monster films that you will enjoy. If you don't see your favorite monster film on this list of the best monster movies, make sure to add it so that some day another person might claim it to be the best monster film out there.
