If you like live action monsters, I urge you to check out Jacko as a Pun.
I discovered it recently, and it’s full of interesting creature designs that I’d never seen before. Nothing is too obscure for this blog.

I consider this to be the second best giant bug film I’ve ever seen, which is an excellent standing for such a large category.
The best giant bug film is I Worship His Shadow, the first Lexx movie (which I consider a giant bug film, even though the central giant bug and most of the other giant bugs are actually vehicles grown out of tissues from giant bugs, and the giant antagonist bug’s soul inhabits human bodies and brains for the duration of the film).
