Whether based on real animals or something made up, these 15 killer animals from movies will give you nightmares. No, they won’t just give you nightmare, they may even cause you to look at your own pet differently. When Fido licks your arm, you may be wondering if he’s trying to find out what you taste like. When Whiskers falls asleep on your neck you may think he’s trying to suffocate you.

While you may not find giant sharks when you go swimming, or giant snakes for that matter, some of these killer animals are real. Remember, take your bear spray when you go camping, try not to look like a seal when swimming in the ocean, and always make sure you can run faster than the people that are with you!


The Anaconda franchise started in 1997. It was in that year that Jennifer Lopez and Ice Cube did everything they could to fight off a giant anaconda snake that was killing everyone around them. Since then, there have been more of these movies created, including Lake Placid vs Anaconda, which came out this year. You’ll want to avoid the Amazon River after this one.


Backcountry is a new movie that is based on real life events. It revolves around a couple backpacking through the Canadian wilderness, and the dangers of bears in the wild. You’ll think hard next time before you go hiking in the woods after you watch this movie.


Cujo is a 1983 film based on a Stephen King book of the same name. In this movie, a young mother and her son stop to have their car fixed only to find no one home at the repairman’s house, no one except their rabid St. Bernard, Cujo. Be prepared to be frightened — you’ll never look at this dog breed the same again.
