    Jaws. The one that started the trend is still the best in my opinion.

    I'm also a fan of the remake of Willard starring Crispin Glover.

    It may be mainstream, but it is one of the greatest movies ever...JAWS!
     
  3. Tarantula is the movie I really like. The creature is made so lovely and the idea with the serum and what happens to people when they take it is still unmatched.

    I also like Formicula, because I have seen it as a child and have still the chilling childhood memories of that movie (the sounds of the ants gave me the creeps).

    Such a hard one to decide!!

    I'm going to have to go with Empire of the Ants. Just rewatched this the other day and it was just as cheesy as I remeber it when I was young. Joan Collins being terrorized by giant ants you say?? I'm there!!

    I have to give an honorable mention to Ants!. I found this at a grocery store in a 2-pack with Tarantulas: The Deadly Cargo for $6 and the quality on it is amazing. It's just another one I loved from when I saw it at a young age. :D

    I'm going to have to go with Jaws. One of my favourite movies ever, and one that I will watch anytime whether it is on TV or just watching the DVD for the hundredth time. Love everything about it from the great story and acting to the chilling score. Some say it's not a horror movie, I disagree, it's a giant shark killing people for god's sake!

    Honorable mention goes to Alligator and Slugs.

    I'll have to say The Birds. It's my wife's favorite also.

    I'm another one for Jaws, although The Birds and Them! are high on my list as well.

    Jaws for many reasons:
    The fact that everytime I go go the beach, at some point, I look around just to make sure there are no evil sharks around.
    The famous 'Jaws shot' (Dolly in while zooming out) has been replicated several times, including once in my early short film.
    The fact that Speilberg created such a suspenseful masterpiece with a rather moderate budget.
    Just for the sheer entertainment value of the film.

    There are way too many Creature Features to choose from for me. Right now I have to go with Peter Jackson's King Kong. Also in the running for me was Jurrasic Park, Squirm, and Creepshow. If I thought about it longer I could come up with many more.
     
  12. I'll go with Jurassic Park. It was my favorite movie for a long time when it first came out, and I still think the fx are some of the best around.

    Mine is Squirm. This movie is just insane ammounts of fun, and incredibly well made to boot. Jeff Lieberman rules!

    Jaws is probably my favorite but Grizzly is a close second. I had a blast with that movie! Devil Dog is great too but for different reasons.

    I'd have to say either Grizzly or Slugs. Both are the cheesiest of 80's cheese.

    The Deadly Spawn gets my vote. I was expected some low budget, cheesy flick after the opening sequence, but what I found was a film that was actually a bit scary and had awesome effects! Just a really good film and I wish I had picked it up sooner.
     
  19. If it counts then I gotta go with Night of the Creeps. That movie is just so much fun.

    If it doesn't count then I'm going with Jaws. It's just a all around great movie.

    I always had a soft spot for the low budget.

    I'll go with The Black Scorpion. The effects were by the great Willis O'Brien.
