THE THING!

Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air and deep beneath the rolling waves, in labyrinths of coral caves, The echo of a distant tide comes willowing across the sand and everything is green and submarine...

You're neither. You're an errand boy, sent by grocery clerks, to collect a bill.

Kind of old school for me...

Dracula (the Christopher Lee version is my favorite) - absolute evil - with class...
The Monster - From "Young Frankenstein" - the zipper in the neck was perfect!...
The Creature from the Black lagoon - Kind of felt sorry for him/it
The Alien - From "Alien"
The Pod People - From "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"

This is more along the lines of the OP as far as the Toho movie monsters, but mine, maybe only in second to Godzilla, would be the Green Gargantua from 'War of the Gargantuas'.  It's a cheezy 60's movie but probably has more scenes of the monsters themselves than any of the era (not sure about the Gamera movies though, never was in to those).  Anyway, the Green Gargantua was the only giant monster from the Godzilla pantheon that I'm aware of that actually ate people, and he was scary looking on his own.  At the age that I first saw it, perfect stuff for many nightmares.

Godzilla definitely. Although I rather like the 90s iteration (especially the "meltdown" one).

I have a soft spot for both Anguirus and Baragon, but probably because Baragon's a wee bit ridiculous. King Ghidorah too, and that giant robotic funky chicken Gigan :)

The Alien from Alien.

Pumpkinhead (hell yeah!)

Is it racist to include Jawas? Because... you know... they're a fully realised alien species... ?

I have to admit I also have a soft spot for werewolves: Dog Soldiers, Lon Chaney Jr (it's common knowledge he was, in fact, a wolfie), the wolves from A Company Of Wolves (which are essentially wolves that take on the guise of people).

Gwangi!!!!! In fact nearly any Harryhausen creation: Medusa (who scared the crap out of me as a pup), Talos, the hydra, the gryphon in Sinbad, the sea monster in Titans... the list goes on forever... Oh and Bubo!

And since Cthulhu was in his own movie by the HPLHS; Him too!!! :D

Ha!!  Thanks, I knew he had a name, I was thinking 'Sanda' or 'Saida' or something like that, maybe that's the brown one.  Terrifying stuff though, even when Godzilla was mean he didn't eat people, he might burn or stomp you or smash you with his tail.  Definitely nothing along the lines of looking in a window, reaching in and grabbing someone, and stuffing them in your mouth and chewing; as far as terror, that's on a whole other level compared to things like giant flying spinning flaming turtles.

Yes, War Of The Gargantuas has plenty of horror elements and I like the dualism between the two monsters too. Gaira is a horrific kaiju creation with a frightening appearance and his scream is chilling. This film scared me too as a child watching it on Saturday afternoons. It is one of my favorite if not very favorite kaiju monster films. Maybe a tie between it and Godzilla vs Hedorah.

There is only one other kaiju film that approach the horror of this film to me as a child and that was Rodan with those giant mutant grubs in the flooded mineshaft that would pull people under the water.

I like the old ones too..... Frankenstein, Swampthing, and the Wolfman rocked.

Now that communications technology has made it possible to give global reach to the bizarre and archive it forever, it is essential for men and women of reason resolutely to counter the delusions of the fringe element. James S. Robbins

I remember checking out the TV guide in the paper every week and would check the weekend horror/creature feature listings hoping for War of the Gargantuas, it was to me the tops at the time.  In almost every other kaiju from that era it seems that there are long stretches where the monster is not in the scene, even some of the later ones also, but Gargantuas does not have that problem.  The only criticism I have is that the middle scene with Gaira vs the military is a bit long, but other than it's solid all around.  Ha, I had forgotten about that Rodan scene, that is another nightmare-inducing one.  I saw Gargantuas when I was probably way too young, maybe 5 or so, those are about the earliest repeat nightmares I recall ever having.  They didn't last long, but then my older cousins took me a few years later to see Jaws (PG my butt) and that was the end of restful sleep for another while.
