Re: Guess the movie monster...

I always enjoy these types of quizzes. I usually guess a couple real quick and then have to come back to it a short time later. It can be tough when getting the right answers depends on you spelling things exactly as they want you to. And I've already seen one where I named the monster, but the correct answer was actually the name of the film.

Which one is 14? That claw is driving me nuts and I think it's from a film where people mutate into that? Reminds me of the Doom creatures, which it isn't.

Since the number 14 has already been mentioned, that's how many I got right.

Hey, I got #6 right, but they sure are picky about the spelling.

#4 threw me off big time. I kept on thinking it was a wing.

First one I got, but perhaps only because I just watched all of the Kaiju films.

I suck, monster movies are my favorite genre by far, and I only got 6 right. Too impatient to research or even think hard, so I looked at the answers right away.

Re: Guess the movie monster...

I got 8. My hats off to you guys getting the double digits. The first threw me so bad that it wrecked my game. Now that I see what it is, I feel that one is kind of a cheat. Oddly enough:
Spoiler:
I kept thinking what kind of monster has got Mickey Mouse hands. It didn't occur to me that it actually was a Disney movie monster.


Update: Now that I have looked at the answers, I see I missed a few because
Spoiler:
I put the wrong sequel title in.

Officially: 1, 3, 7, 9, 10, 14, 15, 18 and 21 (9 of 21).

Giving myself 5 and 11 due to spelling issues ...
