Movie monsters come in all shapes and sizes

Pixar’s Monsters University started its semester this month. Set a decade before the events of the 2001 hit Monsters Inc., the prequel sees John Goodman and Billy Crystal reprise their roles as Sulley and Mike; cartoon critters who head off to college to learn the art of scaring.Of course movie monsters come in all shapes and sizes and whilst Pixar’s digitally rendered duo are at the cuter end of the movie monster spectrum, beyond them lays all manner of iconic beasties that have terrified film fans down the years. So from plane-swatting gorillas to city-stomping lizards, join us as we run down some of the most iconic monsters to grace the movies. Killer creatures that have stomped, chomped and romped their way into moviegoers’ nightmares.
