    Not to pick but I believe you need to say Frankenstein's Monster and not just Frankenstein. Anyway, my choice is definitely the Creature from the Black Lagoon. Great creature design. This movie needs a remake, but hopefully any CGI would be kept to a minimum as only to enhance scenes and not be the Creature entirely.

    Why, aren't you happy with the original?

    I think only bad movies should be remade... with a few exceptions(IE Body Snatchers, The Thing)

    I like The Wolf Man the best. To me, he was just the coolest of the monsters. Plus, I think his makeup is the best. Frankenstein comes in close, however.

    I'm sorry, but I just think the movie Dracula with Bela Lugosi sucked. :( I never saw the original Nosferatu but saw the remake, which I really enjoyed.

    That's retarded. What qualifies as a bad movie and who passes judgement on it? The fact is that if someone has the rights, they have every right to do whatever they want with it. Freedom of speech and the like, they can piss all over it if they want. We don't have to like it, but there it is.

    I was happy with the first one. I just think with all the other classic movie monsters have movie after movie.They need to give the Creature some respect.

    Good point. But it still doesn't alterate my right to say The Giant Claw was a very bad movie. Even if I'm a fan of those kinda 50's movies, I didn't like this one at all.

    I seen no reason to remake Creature from the Black Lagoon. Clearly you all love it as it is - so what is it you'd want from a remake?

    As to the question - a favorite? I just don't have one. I like a whole bunch. Horror just wouldn't be the same without the big names (Frankenstein, Dracula, Wolf Man and The Mummy). And they're just the most well known names.

    The moth out of "Blood Beast Terror" is a lot of fun.
