I'm trying to think of a list of common types of movie monsters from the 50's/60's and would like some input. So far I have:

Werewolves
Vampires
Ghosts
Zombies
Aliens
Creatures (from black lagoon, from 20k fathoms)
Robots
Constructed monsters (Frankenstein)
Giant insects
Mummys

I know I'm missing some.

I have (and read the book, to which the movie bears a passing resemblance). My point is that Triffids are plants, thus the category should be plants..

* big piles of rocks



I'm not kidding - I remember watching this movie. Piles of rocks from a meteor that grow when they're watered, fall over, crush stuff, and grow some more. Why don't they make movies like this anymore? Oh, wait, there's SyFy originals!

Speaking of giant insects, "The Beginning of the End" is on right now, on MeTV! It's on the Svengoolie show, a tribute to the old chiller theater TV movie shows of the 60's and 70's!



Nothing better than a swarm of giant radioactive grasshoppers on a Saturday night!

Actually my next question was going to delve into monsters in other cultures. That was the part of Cabin in the Woods that I found very fascinating and it was barely touched upon.
