Monster movies have been around since the beginning of the motion picture industry, and the effects for those movies have... evolved. Initially, most movie monsters were little more than people in rubber suits, but advances in special effects have made it possible to integrate actors into shots with seemingly massive creatures. From there, monsters became more terrifying via stop-motion animation and other techniques that made movie monsters appear more lifelike and frightening.
Still, it wasn't until the invention of CGI that movie monsters managed to improve to the point that they looked real. Granted, that took a long time to perfect, but these days, it's difficult to tell that a CGI monster isn't real. Of course, that's not true of every example, but some films have managed to truly terrify audiences through the use of CGI. When movies embrace the tech, the SFX artists often go the extra mile by including intricate details, many of which are easy to miss on first viewing.
Every so often, a fan notices one of these CGI details from monster movies and posts them to the Movie Details subreddit. When other folks see these, they often demand a rewatch so they can be seen in the film themselves. This list highlights some of the more interesting CGI details in monster movies that demand a rewatch.
