DINOSAUR films and other giant creature movies

An Overview

Here’s a listing of the dinosaur films I have reviewed on Parlor of Horror.
I’m mostly concerned with older movies that make up the history of dinosaurs in film and the special effects for these films.

Also included here are links to my reviews of: Kaiju, American Giant Monster films, Giant people, Giant Apes, Giant Bugs

  1. This is great. I’ve read a bunch of these before and will try and work my way through the rest. From this list, give us a few that you really recommend as very fun ‘good bad’ or B movies. Would be keen to take a look at some of them.

  2. Nice work, Mike! Love these films! Will go back and check some of these out. You never reviewed Valley of Gwangi? I thought that you had.
