Monsters have always fascinated and scared us. Some people believe they exist, while some don’t; but we all have heard their stories from our parents, who in turn, have heard them from their parents and so on. We have mostly based monster stories on the figment of our imagination, giving them all kinds of superpowers and hideous personalities one can think of. But Hollywood has gone one step ahead of us and turned our monster tales into movies, giving our imaginations a shape and form. From far away in space to deep down inside the earth, filmmakers have brought out monster stories from every comprehensible (sometimes even non-comprehensible!) corner and given us memorable films, a random list of which is presented below. We don’t know whether monsters exist for sure, but these films have only made our beliefs stronger. Here’s the list of top monsters movies ever. You can watch some of these best monster movies on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.
16. The Blob (1958)
While science defines the microscopic amoeba as a single-celled organism that moves forward with tiny projections and even eats that way, the independently-made 1958 sci-fi horror film ‘The Blob’ saw a similar creature, which appeared from outer space, crashing into the earth with a meteorite. It devours everything that comes in its path and keeps growing bigger each time he swallows a human, turning deep red in color. The monster from outer space gave other directors the inspiration and they started coming out with their own versions of the single-celled blob that spares none.

15. Piranha 3D (2010)
Although the myth has been busted several times over that this freshwater fish can tear apart a human or an animal in seconds, Hollywood filmmakers haven’t given up on that legend yet! Depicting the predatory fish with sharp, serrated teeth and jaws powerful enough to sever down a human into pieces, many movies have been made on the South American native fish. The recent in the collection was Alexandre Aja’s ‘Piranha 3D’, which was more of a sleaze fest than a horror movie, yet portraying the fish as monsters fully well. Nonetheless, the carnivorous fish have fascinated movie makers enough to come up with more such gory depictions of the toothed water dwellers.
