The 10 Weirdest Movie Monsters in History

Maybe it’s just us, but this season gets us to thinking about monsters — from the terrifying to the cute to the just plain weird. We’ve already taken a look at regional American monsters, but lucky for anyone who loves a good horror flick, there are even stranger creatures to be found on the big screen. We’ve grown accustomed to monsters like werewolves, vampires, and zombies, but as we’ve learned, there are so many more possibilities out there. Some of these monsters make no sense, as if they’re just a bunch of parts slapped together to be as intimidating as possible, and some of them are just bizarre from concept to execution, but all of them are completely weird. As you probably know, there are tons of bizarre movie monsters out there, so click through to read our list and then let us know your own favorites in the comments!

The creature from The Host

At first, the floppy, amphibious mutant in this South Korean New Wave film is kind of hilarious — ostensibly a product of hundreds of bottles of formaldehyde being dumped into the Han River, it clearly was not meant to have all the appendages it does, and it moves like a deranged gymnast. You stop laughing when it starts regurgitating the bones of all the people it’s eaten, but the monster is still unlike any we’ve ever seen before.
