  1. Great list. Ah, #50… I just reviewed Half Human a few weeks ago. Feind without a Face is one of my all time fave 50’s sci-fi/horror. The only one I haven’t seen on this list is, El Baron of Terror. And the only one I disagree with is The Legend of Boggy Creek, I thought it was god awful, terribly narrated, horrible music that lent no mood to the film, no plot, no pacing or character development… I really don’t know what people like about it.

    I like the way you have The Fly twice… both great versions 🙂

  2. Great list, The monster that challenged the world is a gem. I would have included Killer Shrews, Creeping terror, Bucket of blood (with the great Dick Miller) and every Vincent Price horror flick ever made. Obviously there are more than 50 great monster flicks. You put together a thoughtful list that is hard to argue with. By the way I saw the Legend of Boggy Creek when I was a kid, It’s the scariest movie ever made. Stay away from the windows!
