As we demonstrated here , the writers of Toptenz appreciate a good movie monster. But we also appreciate a really bad movie monster . Not just a lazily made, overdone monster like the sharks from any number of Jaws ripoffs or some SyFy original movie. These are hilarious creatures that were truly deranged in design or execution and then put into a serious movie.

This is a 1954 movie, supposedly starring Peter Graves as a traumatized test pilot who sees eyes during hallucinations. The real stars here are the aliens, even though they’re on screen for only about five minutes. During that time, they do a good enough job of trying to act scary and superior to the imprisoned pilot to be absolutely hilarious with those ping pong ball eyes. They make the pajama-clad aliens in the notorious turkey Plan Nine from Outer Space look like the Predator.

In this 1956 movie from Roger Corman, the town of Beechwood is subjected to mind-controlling bats while (again) Peter Graves runs around trying to figure out what’s going on, giving symbolic speeches about the evils of communism. This movie has a reputation for being better than most of its time and type as far as suspense and pacing go which makes it so much better when the monster shows up, looking like an adorable evil celery plant . And it looks so happy to be evil!

There are more than eighty other names associated with the kappa in different regions, including kawappa , gawappa , kōgo , mizushi , mizuchi , enkō , kawaso , suitengu , and dangame . [3] Along with the oni and the tengu , the kappa is among the best-known yōkai in Japan. [7] [8] These various names of the creature vary by region and local folklore, while the term "kappa" remains the name most well known outside Japan. [ citation needed ]

Kappa have been used to warn children of the dangers lurking in rivers and lakes, as kappa have been often said to try to lure people to water and pull them in. [6] [9]

Kappa legends are said to be based on the Japanese giant salamander or hanzaki , an aggressive salamander that grabs its prey with its powerful jaws. [10] Other theories suggest they are based on historical sightings of the now extinct Japanese river otter as seen from a distance, otters have been known to stand upright and a drunk, frightened or hallucinating person may think they are seeing a humanoid entity and not a wild animal.
