List Rules Vote up your favorite monster films that were released in the 1990s.

For all the horror and action nerds, here is a list of the best ‘90s monster movies, ranked by other movie fans on Ranker. This decade boasts new, high profile versions of both Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and Godzilla. Hollywood’s commitment to the monster genre only increased in the '90s, as special effects gradually got better and better.
 

Also on this 1990s monster film list are originals The Relic, Mimic and Tremors. You’ll also find three more films in the Godzilla brand (all from Japan), a film called Frankenhooker (the title should tell you what that’s about), and Leprachaun (plus three sequels in the decade).
 

So, which of the movies on this list of good 90s monster movies would you recommend to others? Vote up the top 90s monster movies and make sure to add any we might have missed.
