We all love *ahem* a good B-Movie film. Those creature-feature films that look like they have been put together by a class of kindergarten kids.

But love them or loathe them, you have to admit that they are pure entertainment (intentionally or not).

Sometimes, however, life imitates art, especially in nature. Depending on a LOT of circumstances, such as size, age, etc, the battle can swing either way. Below is a list of six "Vs," films that have been captured in the wild, and we get to see who won these real life battles of the beasts!

Be warned, spoilers about the outcome of these films are included in the article too.

Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus (2009)

Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus (2009) was directed by Jack Perez (as Ace Hannah). The director, writer, producer, actor and editor has previously worked on the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys (1995–1999).

The film stars Debbie Gibson, Vic Chao, Stephen Blackehart, Michael Teh, Mark Hengst and Lorenzo Lamas.

In the 2009 film, the California coast was terrorized by two enormous prehistoric sea creatures that battled each other for supremacy of the sea.

Towards the end, the two creatures engage in a fierce fight, where the octopus strangles the shark after it dismembers some of its tentacles, causing it to bleed to death. The two beasts die and sink into the murky depths, still locked together from their battle.

Below features some footage of a shark encountering an octopus out in the wild. But who will win when the two creatures meet?

Mega Python vs. Gatoroid (2011)

Mega Python vs. Gatoroid (2011) was directed by Mary Lambert, who also directed Pet Sematary II (1992).

The film stars actress/singer Tiffany, A Martinez, Kathryn Joosten, Robert R. Shafer, Arden Cho and actor/stuntman Carl Ciarfalio.

In the 2011 film, a crisis occurs in the Florida Everglades as giant pythons are threatening the alligator population.

The following video even made the news when a person stumbled upon what they thought was a strange python/alligator hybrid. On closer examination, it was revealed that they were, of course, two separate animals. But what the hell happened? Some thought that the snake had eaten the alligator, but it was still alive and managed to claw its way out of the 'gator's stomach. In reality, the most plausible reason was that the 'gator was already dead when the snake found it. When the snake started to swallow it, the 'gator started to bloat as rigor mortis started to set in. As the 'gator started to expand, the snake tried desperately to regurgitate it, but it was too late, and the snake exploded!

Komodo vs. Cobra (2005)

Komodo vs. Cobra (2005) was directed by Jim Wynorski which he also wrote along with Bill Munroe.

Stars of the film include Delpaneaux Wills, an actor who has starred in How to Get Away with Murder (2014– ), and Roark Critchlow, who's credits include Pretty Little Liars (2010– ) and Arrow (2012– ).

The 2005 film involves scientists who accidentally create man-eating monsters that jeopardize the entire planet!

The film concludes when the komodo dragon and the cobra begin to fight each other. The two animals are both killed in a military bombing on the island, still in mid-battle.

When a King Cobra came into contact with a Komodo dragon in the wild, there was only one winner. Check out the footage below to see one of them lose the battle in dramatic fashion!

Eagle vs Shark (2007)

The 2007 film Eagle vs Shark was directed by Taika Waititi, who has worked on Green Lantern (2011) and is currently attached to the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok (2017).

The film stars Adam Gardiner, Craig Hall, Joel Tobeck and Jemaine Clement.

OK, so it's not a horror film, but it revolves around a wallflower called Lily, who is attracted to a loser called Jerrod. He's nursing a decade-long grudge against someone who teased him in high school; she's just out of a job. She goes home with him to a seafront town where he intends to have it out with his nemesis. She meets his father, his daughter from a one-night stand, and other family members - then there's the memory of his talented (and dead) brother. Jerrod treats Lily, invents a relationship with a women he had a crush on years before, and gears up for his fight. Will she finally have enough and go home?

The video below shows a bald eagle and a shark coming into contact with each other. Will the eagle receive a watery grave? Or will the shark get the sharp end of the eagles beak? Click play to find out.

Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus (2010)

Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus (2010) was directed by Christopher Ray (as Christopher Douglas-Olen Ray) and was written by Naomi L. Selfman and Micho Rutare. Rutare's credits include Z Nation (2014– ) and Sharknado 2: The Second One (2014).

The film stars Nicola Lambo, Gerald Webb, Robert Picardo and Jaleel White.

In this 2009 film, a megalodon battles with a crocosaurus causing massive destruction. The US Army has to try and destroy the havoc-creating monsters.

Towards the end of the film, a sonic emitter is drooped in the sea as part of a plan to lure the creatures near to an undersea volcanic range. The volcano explodes, killing the shark and crocodile, and they both sink into the volcano.

Below is footage of a massive crocodile having an encounter with one of the deadliest sharks known to man, the bull shark. The bull shark is very tolerant of low salinity, which means they can be found in lakes and have even been known to swim up rivers.

If you don't believe me about the bull shark, check out this video!

Lake Placid vs. Anaconda (2015)

Lake Placid vs. Anaconda (2015) was directed by A.B. Stone and was written by Berkeley Anderson, who also worked on Jarhead 2: Field of Fire (2014).

The film stars Nigel Barber, Heather Gilbert, Laura Dale, Oliver Walker, Corin Nemec, Yancy Butler and horror favorite Robert Englund.

The 2015 film sees a giant crocodile going head-to-head with a giant anaconda. The town sheriff must find a way to destroy the two monsters before they kill the whole town!
