I love, love, love Lizards (all reptiles and amphibians actually) and spiders! As a matter of a fact, we have a few house spiders that keep the fruit flies at bay. Thank you spiders! However, not everyone can deal with one or either of those things. That folks is why they continually show up in horror movies!
As a kid, and to my mother’s dismay, I was constantly picking up frogs and snakes. On several occasions I tried to bring them home. I was really intrigued by them. My sister, on the other hand, was terrified of snakes and being the jerk kid I was, I once threw a green grass snake at her. She STILL brings it up to this day. I can still hear her screams.
Below are my favourite killer lizard and snake b-movies. For fun I threw in a few killer snake and killer frog movies.
The Giant Gila Monster
Giant Spider Invasion (1975)
Earth vs The Spider (1958)
The Snake Woman (1961)
Oh and don’t worry, I didn’t forget the biggest lizard of all, Gojira! AKA Godzilla!
Each month I run a b-movie night called Killer B Cinema. Join Lizzie Violet & Zoltan Du Lac for a monthly evening of b-moves from the 1950s to 1990s! There will also be trivia with prizes & much more! Please follow us on Instagram and Facebook!
