What are you favorite Pre-CGI stopmotion creatures from Film?

When younger movie goers think of stop-motion they think of Clay-Mation cartoons. However though before CGI Existed, cartoons were not the only place where stop-motion was used. Back in the day, film-makers like Ray Harryhausen, Willis O'Brien, and Dennis Muren used stop-motion to create creature effects for movies that were mainly live-action. I'd like you guys to post your top 10 stop-motion creature effects in film!See More
