The 5 Best Killer Animal Movies

The 5 best killer animal movies is putting on some protective gear and heading out into the wild to find the best movies about killer animals. Check out our picks in the gallery below!

A good monster movie like Godzilla or The Blob is impactful because of the sheer size and strength of the creature on-screen—creating something brand new and unleashing it onto the general public is a truly horrifying thing to consider. However, an alternative to these kinds of scares is the idea of a real life creature wreaking havoc. Instantly, the horror is grounded and the threat seems all the more real.

With the upcoming release of killer croc movie Crawl, it’s hard not to look back on all the killer animals that have blessed moviegoers over the course of film history. Of course, you’ve got the more absurd ones like Creature from the Black Lagoon and Frankenstein, but—for Crawl’s sake—it’s worth taking a look at the creature features based on actual animals. No matter their size, these guys have brought nothing but terror to the world around them… and that’s why we love them.
