Okay so in all reality this list could go on forever with the countless cheesy monsters from the drive-in era and the the over the top puppet era that was the 1980's. I decided that the main focus of this list would be more on the fun side of cheese and not the bad, well too bad anyways. So here are some of my favorites.

1. The Brain

A giant evil brain with razor-sharp teeth that could swallow a person whole, pretty standard stuff for 80's horror. B-movie fans are still waiting for a re-release of this, as of now it is only available on VHS.

2. Carnosaur

Horrible dino puppets in all of their cheesy splendor. Carnosaur is often considered a gory rip off of Jurassic Park. Both are about genetically engineered dinosaurs and both films were based on novels. However Carnosaur hit theaters a full month before Jurassic Park And the Novel predates JP's novel by about five years.

3. Ghoulies

This list just wouldn't be complete without Ghoulies! There have been a number of the little creatures over the multiple films, all gross looking little guys, but let's face it, when you think of Ghoulies you think of the toilet scene.

4. Terrorvision

An alien monster beamed to earth through a satellite dish, eats a bunch of people then makes some friends. This movie is weird but super fun! Oddly enough the monster isn't the weirdest thing in this movie, that honor goes to the very odd set design.

5. Attack of the Killer Tomatoes

I really don't know what I can tell you about this one that the title hasn't already.

Killer Tomatoes...yep.

6. The Deadly Spawn

Super fun B-movie classic here! another involving an alien as well. This grotesque alien does exactly what any self respecting alien should, eat, grow, eat, get bigger still. A must watch for fans of cheesy horror.
