Almost as if Lovecraft developed them himself, the creatures shown in Frank Darabont’s The Mist never fully reveal themselves, but enough visible hints give us the gist of an insect-like, primordial creature with all sorts of hidden parts left to haunt your imagination.  Perhaps the Cloverfield monster would have made this list if The Mist hadn’t done it better and earlier with their monsters.  The lack of a face calls attention to the dread created by the monsters, not the monsters themselves, in order to amplify the human element and make their invasion seem more like a state of mind (or insanity, rather) than reality.  I imagine a bigger, more gruesome Mothra.
