Top 10 Iconic Monsters 1920-1950 [Horror Obsessive]

Monsters. They are the heart and soul of every single horror movie. Whether they’re created in a lab, are a haunted house possessed by demons, or a deranged scarred maniac stalking your dreams, without monsters at the forefront horror movies would just be about a group of people doing everyday things with no imminent threat to their welfare. And we couldn’t have that now, could we? So in celebration of the ghouls, the beasts, and the things that go bump in the night, I’ve decided to compile a list—or three, depending on how well this one goes—celebrating what I consider to be the Top 10 Iconic Monsters from a specific period.

Now, remember, this is my own opinion and even though I doubt everyone reading this will agree with me, I’m not trying to put the cat among the proverbial pigeons with my choices. Yet having spent the best part of half a century—or at least from an age where I knew what scary ass monsters were—hiding behind sofas and pillows, drinking in the late-night madness glaring out at me from my TV screen, I feel as if I have enough knowledge to at least offer up who I consider to be the Top 10 Iconic Monsters of All Time.

So let’s step through the door, into the fog, and try not to get eaten along the way.
