Movie monsters battle it out for top scare

Jabba the Hutt, The Fly, King Kong, The Terminator and Freddy Krueger have made it on to a list of the most infamous movie monsters of all time.

Radio Times magazine has compiled 50 of the most frightening creations from film history.

They include the alien from the film of the same name (inset right), the Skeleton Army from Jason and the Argonauts (1963), the shark from Steven Spielberg's Jaws (1975), T Rex from Jurassic Park (1993) and Blair Witch from The Blair Witch Project (1998).

Early film monsters include Dracula (1931) and Mr Hyde from Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (1931/41).

Radio Times film editor Andrew Collins said: "Whether they emerge mutated from atomic sludge or haunt our dreams in human form, the best monsters stay with us long after the credits have rolled."
