The 1950's and 60's were something of a "golden age" of B-movies - even the biggest theatrical ventures were full of claymation and sock puppets. But in the generation of revisiting older films, which of these classic "cheesy" horror flicks do you think would be the best modern remake? Just remove the campiness and picture the creatures in CGI. Note: This list excludes "Godzilla" or "King Kong" and any of it's sequels/spin-offs, since those are being brought back currently.

I have a weak spot for werewolves, so I go for "The Curse of the Werewolf".
A small note for Reptilicus, which is the only Danish attempt in that genre!  My late husband was one of those fleeing from the monster over the bridge!

Yes on the werewolves!  They need to make a new "Wolfman" movie, seriously.  P.S. Your husband did a great job!  ;)

...with the great Ray Harryhausen as a later pioneer of creature effects.

Bump.  I wonder of these monsters ever have to pay for their damages?
