17 Menacing Movie Monsters: CGI That Scared the Pants Off of You

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Do you have monsters that infiltrate your nightmares? Have any of them come straight out of the movies?

If so, we're betting some of them might be found in this slideshow. Jurassic World is steaming up the box office right now with a man made dinosaur, the Indominous-Rex. Would mankind ever be so stupid to create something hell bent on their destruction? If they're writing it in a screenplay, it's probably crossed the mind of someone in real life.

Flip around the slideshow and let us know who we missed!

1. Indominus-Rex (Jurassic World)

Indominus-Rex (Jurassic World)
It's hard to beat the original 90s CGI of the T-Rex from Jurassic Park, but the I-Rex definitely managed to wow audiences if the soaring box office sales are any indication. It beats the animatronic dinosaurs from earlier movies, that's for sure!

2. Davy Jones (Pirates of the Caribbean)

Davy Jones (Pirates of the Caribbean)
If this guy doesn't count as a monster, then I don't know what does. Davy Jones and the rest of his crew were part man, part fish, and Jones' octopus face in particular was perfectly disgusting.

3. Fellbeasts (Lord of the Rings)

Fellbeasts (Lord of the Rings)
Somewhere between a dragon and a snake, these flying monsters were nearly as terrifying as the ring wraiths that rode them. Over the course of three movies, we only got a few closeups of the Fellbeasts, but they had some impressive CGI, nonetheless.

4. Optimus-Rex (Transformers: Age of Extinction)

Optimus-Rex (Transformers: Age of Extinction)
Come on, how can you beat Optimus Prime riding a robotic dinosaur decepticon? The Transformer movies are practically 90% CGI at this point, but if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

5. Chitauri (The Avengers)

Chitauri (The Avengers)
Forget little green men, these aliens were merciless killing machines with huge flying slugs on their sides. Most of the Chitauri were played by stunts guys, but gems like this were flawlessly animated!

6. Toruk (Avatar)

Toruk (Avatar)
Everything on Pandora seemed to be a new and exciting creation, straight out of the mind of James Cameron, but Toruk in particular was damn impressive, and he absolutely makes this movie monster cut.
