Creature characteristics have been making millions since 1933 King Kong and director Steven Spielberg Jaws is even often called the first modern blockbuster. However, the monster movie story does not end there. The 2018 $530 Million Salary The mega won at the box office proves that the horror subgenre is still doing impressive business decades later, and its upcoming sequel hopes to continue that momentum.

While the abyss is more than a standard monster movie, that descriptor still certainly fits director James Cameron’s ambitious 1989 effort. the abyss sees a team of divers encounter aliens on the high seas when they reach the bottom of the ocean in a film that is by turns claustrophobic, scary, and surprisingly awe-inspiring. On the other hand, Meg 2: The TrenchThe trailer for promises the sequel will deliver a simpler brand of blockbuster thrills. However, the thalassophobia-inducing image of Jonas’ crew walking on the surface of the trench slabs underwater resembles similar scenes in this classic.

7 The deep blue sea


1999 B-movie by director Renny Harlin The deep blue sea could be filled with references to the Jaws franchise, but that doesn’t mean it’s a worthy homage to the previous blockbuster. The deep blue sea is a bit too silly to be taken seriously and features fewer effective scares than most Jaws movies (except for the sadly bad Jaws: Revenge).
