    An American werewolf in London is obviously up there. I also enjoyed dog soldiers.

    There was also some australian movie in the 80s about a huge wild boar that I remember being cool. EDIT it's called RAZORBACK. There are a couple modern wild boar movies aswell. any cool animal horror movies you can think of?

    Came here to post Dog Soldiers.

    Ginger Snaps is actually underrated.

    The best one I've seen recently is probably the Shape-Shifters short from Love, Death & Robots.

    Might catch some flack for this, but I thought the first couple of Underworld movies were alright.

    Dog Soldiers was awesome, really nailed the design and brutality of a Werewolf.

    It's too bad the new Wolfman with Benicio Del Toro was such a let down.

    While it’s a super cheesy movie I actually love Van Helsing and it’s by far my favorite visual representation of a werewolf .

    Also Ginger Snaps, Dog Soldiers are great and one that’s a different take on werewolves but still great is When Animals Dream.

    I've always really loved Silver Bullet.

    Also agree with @TheWorm that the first couple of Underworld movies had some awesome monsters. Rise of the Lycans was a fun story and I thought very much flushed out the backstory adding to the lore.

    An American werewolf in London is still the king IMO. The use of practical effects for the transformation is why people still remember that scene. Today’s CGI still can’t touch it, perhaps someday but not yet. Silver Bullet was ok, but the werewolf looked rather bad. Dog soldiers is a close second followed by the howling. I was pretty let down by the wolf man remake.

  16. Posting to post later -- hopefully. This is one of my favorite genres and the B movie world is filled with so many choices and hidden gems. Problem is I cannot remember the names of most of them.....

    Tremors is good-- even the sequels are good till the last one which is not.

    Tern wolf. Dude could van surf and sniff out weed like a champ. And also the special fx when he changed to the wolf in the washroom was epic

    I LOVE creature features my favorite genre
    of movies.

    When it comes to Werewolf movies An American
    Werewolf in London is my favorite.

    The transformation scene still looks great after
    all these years

    Forgive the length, but Frank Zappa liked creature features. This is how he prefaced a live performance of his creature feature homage, "Cheepnis".

    "Let me tell you something, do you like monster movies? Anybody? I LOVE monster movies, I simply adore monster movies, and the cheaper they are, the better they are. And cheepnis in the case of a monster movie has nothing to do with the budget of the film -although it helps- but true cheepnis is exemplified by visible nylon strings attached to the jaw of a giant spider...

    ...I'll tell you, a good one that I saw one time, I think the name of the film was "IT CONQUERED THE WORLD," and the . . . Did you ever see that one? The monster looks sort of like an inverted ice-cream cone with teeth around the bottom. It looks like a... like a teepee or . . . sort of a rounded off pup-tent affair, and, uh, it's got fangs on the base of it, I don't know why but it's a very threatening sight, and then he's got a frown and, you know, ugly mouth and everything, and there's this one scene where the, uh, monster is coming out of a cave, see? There's always a scene where they come out of a cave, at least once, and the rest of the cast . . .
    it musta been made around the 1950's, the lapels are about like that wide, the ties are about that wide and about this short, and they always have a little revolver that they're gonna shoot the monster with, and there is always a girl who falls down and twists her ankle.
    Heh-hey! Of course there is! You know how they are, the weaker sex and everything, twisting their ankle on behalf of the little ice-cream cone. Well in this particular scene, in this scene, folks, they, uh, they didn't wanna re-take it 'cause it musta been so good they wanted to keep it, but they . . . when the monster came out of the cave, just over on the left hand side of the screen you can see about this much two-by-four attached to the bottom of the thing as the guy is pushing it out, and then obviously off-camera somebody's goin': "NO! GET IT BACK!" And they drag it back just a little bit as the guy is goin': "KCH! KCH!" Now that's Cheepnis. Awright."
