Since this is primarily a monster movie website. I thought it would be fun to compile a list of the most popular monsters of 2008. Amazingly enough, with all the new monster films being made this year, the list is dominated by classic creatures.
Here we go! The "Hottest Monsters of 2008!"
10. King Ghidorah
The appearance of King Ghidorah on a "Best of 2008" list is a surprise to say the least. The last time our three-headed friend made a movie appearance was back in 2004. Yet here he is. I can only guess that the appearance of a three-headed dragon in "The Mummy: Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor" had something to do with new interest in good old King Ghidorah. See: Ghidorah: The Three-Headed Monster (1964) or search: King Ghidorah
9. MothraOkay, we are two monsters in and already we have our second Japanese monster. Once again we would have to go back to 2004 for the last time Mothra was in a film. I guess this just goes to show that Toho's giant monsters are just as popular as ever. Oh, before I forget. This is the only female monster to make our list. See: Mothra (1961) or search Mothra
7. The Mummy
Okay, here we go. A monster that I can expect on on 2008 list. With the release of "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" starring Brendan Fraser this year. You would expect major interest in resurrected Egyptian dead. Of course I had to use a photo of the Boris Karloff version of "The Mummy". You know I love the classics. See The Mummy: Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor (2008)(Universal) or The Mummy (1932) or search: The Mummy
6. King Kong
5. Creature From The Black Lagoon
