The Return Of Man-In-A-Suit Monster Movies: (The List)

It seems lately that every other week I'm bumping into news that someone has made a monster movie where they have eschewed the now"traditional" use of CGI in creating their monsters for the good old fashioned man-in-a-suit effects, and/or animatronic FX. Fine by me, since I grew up with dudes donning monster suits in movies. Here's a list of some of the recent movies I'm looking forward to. To date, however, none of them have been released on DVD. Though, there is some confusion where SHRIEK OF THE SASQUATCH is concerned. There actually is an Amazon listing, but it says it's unavailable for purchase, and, yet, I came across a review on the web where the reviewer said he found it in a bargain bin, or something.
  1. SHRIEK OF THE SASQUATCH
  2. DEAR GOD, NO! (Bigfoot)
  3. SNOW BEAST (2011)
  4. NIGHT CLAWS (Bigfoot)
  5. CREATURE (2011) (Swamp Monster)
  6. HYPOTHERMIA (Gill Man)
  7. SUCKER (Man Into Mosquito)
  8. THE MILLENIUM BUG (Giant insect monsters)
  9. DIRE WOLF (aka DINO WOLF)
  10. MUCKMAN (Swamp Creature)
The Bottom list may, or may not, have CGI augmentation. Hard to tell, but for the most part the "monsters" in question look to be animatronic/puppet effects.
  1. PARASITIC
  2. CONTAGION (aka BIO-SLIME)
  3. ATOMIC BRAIN INVASION
I'll try and keep this updated when, and if, another movie that fits in here gets announced. Hope this is a sign filmmakers are finally understanding that cheap and crappy CGI looks exactly like cheap and crappy CGI. And, who the hell wants that?

I agree with you. I love these types of films, so please keep posting as you get more news.
I think seeing the original Creature From The Black Lagoon cemented my love for these types of movies. From Humanoids From The Deep To Night of the Demon(1980), I've always enjoyed the heck out of them. I hope to see more in the future.
I recently watched Assault of the Sasquatch and quite enjoyed it's over the top nature and man in an ape suit aesthetic. Good stuff.
Thanks for the great thread.

I'd rather watch a bad rubber suit movie anytime over a crappy CGI movie like they show on Sci-Fi.

Roger Corman REALLY should go back to using practical and rubber suits again, as his latest movies for Sci-Fi channel uses the worst CGI avalible

Though I doubt he gives a damn about making GREAT B movies anymore

I've seen The Millennium Bug. Great fun! It's like Godzilla meets The Hills Have Eyes.

I had the pleasure of seeing the film at a film festival, and if anyone is interested here's a audio interview I conducted with director/writer Kenneth Cran: http://reeltoreelradio.blogspot.com/...interview.html

I saw the movie, too. It's excellent. According to their facebook page, they're gonna do a sequel set 1000 years in the future, with the BUG stomping through a town this time. I asked them if they thought they could pull something like that off, and they assured me they could.

Yeah, Ken actually discusses the sequel in the interview I posted. As well as a prequel. They are planning on a trilogy.
