    Dracula from the 1992 movie is a favourite. And ludo from labyrinth too, I love him. Katla, a dragon creature in "the brothers lionheart" (Swedish children's movie/book) used to scare me so much. I don't watch a lot of monster movies..

    There was a Godzilla movie back in 1999 (I think it was) and it was featured in New York City. It really did not make me happy because it wasn't the Godzilla we know and love. It didn't have the roar that is familiar only to Godzilla. That is what I love about the old Godzilla movies and the most recent movie and new one that is coming out. It is staying true to Godzilla.

    Agreed. When I was a teenager, a local tv channel used to do a "4:30 movie" on weekdays and sometimes it was Godzilla week. That's when I first saw all those golden oldies! I loved the two tiny singing women in Mothra, too. Another old fave of mine is "Dinosaurus", a very primitively made movie from the '60s about a caveman and dinosaur thawing out from a glacier. It's done in that old stop-motion style that's really laughable today, but I loved it as a kid.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

(Or there abouts...I don't 100% remember who introduced Gaston).

    My answer would depend on the definition we are using for 'monster'. Classically, Bram Stokers Dracula. But I really love transformative characters in film or literature. Jaime Lannister from GoT, for instance. He's generally repulsive, but becomes more and more relatable as time goes by and some semblance of humanism is portrayed.

    I really like any monster that explores the idea that the darkest parts of ourselves created the monster.

    But I guess that's more in literature. I honestly don't really watch films.
    I'm with you on all of that. I love that as well.

    It's there in films as well. Good film uses the same story-telling elements as lit does. Like, some of the older Frankenstein movies (especially Bride of Frankenstein with Boris Karloff) explore the humanity of the monster and the more monstrous aspects of the humans in the stories.
