Movie Monsters by Deimos-Remus Movie Monsters by Deimos-Remus
Drawings I did of my top 5 favorite movie monsters/creatures.

5. Mugwump

From David Cronenburg's film, Naked Lunch. A movie way too bizarre to follow, but the creature effects were outstanding.

4. Nightmare Demon

Appeared in a nightmare of protagonist David Kessler from An American Werewolf in London, one of the best horror movies ever made.

3. Brundlefly

Also from a Cronenburg movie, The Fly, starring Jeff Goldblum at the title role. Great film, and unconventional as horror films go.

2. The Thing

John Carpenter's The Thing remains and will most likely remain one of my all time favorite movies, a suberbly done minimalistic horror.

1. The Alien

As many of you know, Alien is not only my all time favorite sci-fi AND horror film, but my favorite movie of all time, for too many reasons to list. Perfectly crafted, it will never be surpassed.

Brilliant work on all of them, you name some of my favorite movies and I'm not even a horror fan. Would LOVE to see your rendition of Kessler's transformation!

Thanks! I'm not even the biggest horror fan myself, the vast majority of the genre is pretty awful unfortunately. :/

I agree. Most of the time it's just some monster killing people and the story has no brain or heart. "The Fly" had both.

Exactly, that's what I liked about The Fly so much, you could feel for the characters.

not familiar with #5 but, 1-4 represents an awesome period for movie creature design.

I didn't like the movie it was from, but the creature effects were great. Same makers of the Fly.

Definitely, from the mid-late seventies to the mid-late eighties, the most memorable monsters emerged. Great movies!

Saw the original Alien and it's sequel Aliens after first seeing Alien vs. Predator which got me hooked and interested in them because it reminded me of watching old giant monster movies like the original Godzilla film series.

I just rewatched AVP actually, I did not like it, haha. Glad it got you to see the originals though!
