Pan's Labyrinth

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 95%

No one does monster like Guillermo del Toro, and Pan's Labyrinth is the film to watch for all the best del Toro critters. Following a young Spanish girl who discovers a fantastical world in a mysterious labyrinth, this dark fairy tale is less about creature battles, and more about the wondrous and strange beauty to be found in terrifying monsters.

Hellboy (2004)

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 81%

Thankfully, it is not the 2019 Hellboy on Netflix but Guillermo del Toro's far superior 2004 take on the Dark Horse Comics demonic beast-turned superhero, starring Ron Perlman as the grumpy half-human. And yes, Hellboy is perhaps more of a superhero film than a monster film, but being king of monsters, del Toro delivers plenty of weird and wonderful creatures.


Backcountry, a 2014 Canadian film from director Adam MacDonald gets to the heart of the fear that drives all monster movies: Man vs. beast. In this case, the beast is all the scarier because it's real--a black bear, loosely based on the true story of a man-eating bear in Ontario, Canada and the two campers who faced him. Fair warning: This is a very violent and gory film, so don't watch with kids or kids-at-heart.
