20 best B-movie beasts

1. Snakes on a Plane (2006)

The beast: Snakes... on a plane

Killer feature: Lots of lethal bites.

The movie: When a passenger plane is attacked by a group of blood-thirsty snakes mid-flight, only FBI agent Neville Flynn (played by Samuel L. Jackson) can bring down the slithering swarm. Snakes on a Plane didnt rake in the revenue studio bosses had hoped, but its ridiculous and riotous storyline went onto inspire several parodies and drummed up a significant cult fan base. The films simple premise does exactly what it says on the tin, so if a group of snakes attacking a plane sounds right up your street, you cant go wrong.
