Love monsters? If you're like us, then sure you do. But which is the best one ever? Well, that’s what our epic 100 countdown tries to work out. So come along and delve into a vast bestiary of iconic monstrosities, filled with all manner of Pinheads and Predators and Things, plus plenty of lesser visual effects nightmares...

Note: to save on load times, we've split this over four pages. We're not trying to get you to click lots of times to read the material on the site, but it seemed logical for a list this long.

When the Puttermans, a middle-American family (who may possibly be swingers) buy a new satellite system, things go insane when the dish accidentally beams down a huge gelatinous blob brimming with teeth and dubiously shaped eyes on stalks. The thing is voiced by Megatron himself, Frank Welker.

When the Hungry Beast Alien starts ransacking the local neighbourhood and chomping its way through the family, it’s (as always) up to the teenagers to try and kill off this lump of latex, with the help of an insane grandparent and an Elvira-like late night horror hostess. Sheer 80s madness, the film is full of weird colours and strange sets, and honestly, what sort of ordinary American family has a large mist-filled swimming pool in the middle of their house?

A creature created from the pages of a comic book, this minotaur-like creation is the result of what happens when teens get their hands on ancient magical texts, party too hard and have a little too much imagination. Combining comics and horror as it does, you might have thought this film would have been a little more popular, but seeing it again recently, I can see why it wasn't a major cult hit. There are, however, some good kills, and the monster itself is actually quite impressive, even if it does have a rather rubbery look to it.

These gremlin-like monsters are just one of several miniature creatures to star in sci-fi and fantasy films of the 80s. And while the more alien Critters or lamentable Munchies could have made the list it, has to be the Ghoulies that get the credit, just for the fact that one of them comes out of a toilet on the front of the video box, and that FX guru Stan Winston also did the effects.
