Top 10 Horror Movie Animals You Must Watch
They’re murderous creatures with a lust for human flesh. We’re counting down the top 10 most memorable horror movies that starred animals.
Number 10: The mosquitoes from “Mosquito”
Kicking off our list is a film that’s so bad, it’s good. This movie answers a timeless question: What happens when ordinary mosquitoes feed on alien carcasses? The answer involves a campy, good time filled with horrible dialogue, bad acting, terrible effects and buckets full of gore. If you thought you hated these pests before imagine meeting one this big, without a can of bug spray.
Number 9: The crocodile from “Lake Placid”
This film is a similarly funny, yet scary tale of animal cruelty on man. A 30 foot crocodile has begun snapping at victims in Maine. This water dwelling amphibian is a vicious killing machine that not only devours people but also loves munching on cows.
Number 8: The sheep from “Black Sheep”
In this off-beat horror, the dangers of genetic engineering are explored when experiments turn harmless sheep into bloodthirsty killers. As a result, these modified animals go on a rampage of a New Zealand farm, bringing new meaning to the term “Baaad”.
Number 7: The snake from “Anaconda”
A National Geographic film crew is taken on a trip to hunt the world’s largest giant anaconda in the Amazon rainforest. Unfortunately for them, this snake is so massive, it is capable of consuming a live person. They strike, wrap around you, hold you tighter than your true love then you get the privilege of hearing your bones break before the power of the embrace causes your veins to explode.
Number 6: The ants from “Them”
Now we’re getting serious and delving into the real questions of radioactivity. Here, atomic testing in New Mexico causes regular sized ants to mutate into massive man-eating monsters that are hell-bent on devouring human civilization.
Number 5: The piranhas from “Piranha”
In this 70s horror flick, military scientists have genetically modified piranhas for use in the Vietnam war However, these man-eaters are accidentally released into the river and find their way to a day camp, where they begin to multiply and feed on the guests.
Number 4: The spiders from “Arachnophobia”
A Venezuelan spider stows away on a boat to America It mates with a local spider and their offspring eat their way through the inhabitants of a small town in California. This is easily the scariest flick to ever star 8-legged freaks with large fangs.
Number 3: The St Bernard from “Cujo”
In this Stephen King tale, a rabid bat bites a friendly St Bernard named Cujo. As a result, the dog becomes incredibly violent and goes on a killing spree through a small town in America.
Number 2: The birds from “The Birds”
Terror from the sky reigns in this iconic horror film by the master of suspense himself, Alfred Hitchcock. The anticipation of a feathery attack never lets up and is especially nerve-wracking when the winged killers decide to converge on a child’s party.
Number 1: The shark from “Jaws”
Rounding out our top 10 list is the great white that made us afraid to go to the beach.
The film combines an excellent score by John Williams with suspense and pools of blood.
Jaws will grip you and never let go.
