Movie Monsters

As long as there have been movies, there have been movie monsters. Some are scary (the Mummy, the shark in Jaws), some are silly (Harry in Harry and the Hendersons), and some are even cuddly (Sully in Monsters, Inc.). Whether your kids love a good scare or need something a little gentler, you're sure to find something monstrous on this list.
