      How are you defining modern? About the last 15 years? There's a few films from the early 90s I would have liked to have seen in there. Nightbreed for instance. It might be ridiculously flawed, but it hints at genius throughout and the Nightbreed are a misunderstood fantastically realised race of monsters.

      I missed "Deep Rising" here...a great little flick. Tons of fun!

      Deep Rising is excellent. CGI tentacles have never been more fun.

      Oh and, er, Splice just isn't Vincenzo Natali's debut - Cube, Cypher, Nothing, a bit of Paris je t'aime - he's a bloody ace director!

      Couple of things... the second Lord of the Rings Movie is called the Two Towers, not the Twin Towers. Also, Deep Blue Sea? In a list of greatest anything? Behave!

      Twin Towers or Two Towers? Did New York double for Middle-earth? Speaking of which, I would like to throw in Q- The Winged Serpent, little seen but enjoyable nonetheless.

      Why does everyone always forget The Relic? Fun little movie. Linda Hunt makes anything she's in better & a brilliant monster by the king Stan Winston.

      District 9 definitely my favorite on the list. It shows how bringing creative and well made creatures into filmed locations makes for a better and more involving movie. James Cameron could learn something from the "rookie" director. Spelling and factual mistakes ruined the list. Splice's "eyes" comment stumped me for a while as I figured out what is wrong with her yes. Twin Towers? REALLY? And are you going to say that LL Cool J is in Deep Blue Sea and leave out Sammy J? S'wrong witchu?

      What about Alien Vs. Predator? They're pretty awesome film monsters. Not to mention the "zombie" like creatures from I Am Legend, they're creepy forms of humans!

      Was Clover an alien? I'm sure they say on the DVD that it was down there already and got awoken by that satellite crashing into the ocean. I'd check, but I'm right lazy.

      @Shelbiie the list is about great modern monsters.... the s****y cgi creatures in I am Legend are some of the worst ever in recent history... completely ruined the film. Winning again!! nice list but proof read, proof read, proof read! At least have the decency to change the awful Two Towers mistake!

      Vincenzo Natali directed Cube, Cypher and Nothing before Splice. Short answer Splice is NOT his debut!

      Unless of course you just A) didn't like it or B) simply haven't gotten around to seeing it. In which case: A) I'm sorry that you didn't like it, but I thought it was brilliant, or B) YOU MUST SEE IT, FOR IT IS BRILLIANT!
