Monsters

Is there something breathing under the bed? Check the closet. The monster category is possibly the oldest and most original horror genre of them all. In essence every horror film is a monster film. Typically the monster is a big, harry, drooling, creature with razor sharp teeth and nine inch long claws. But this is not always so. A monster can be as esoteric as a biological plague, as elusive as a phantom spirit, or as twisted as a human serial killer. Good monster films don't hold anything back and leave you with a slightly sick feeling at the end.
