It Came from Beneath the Sea

71%

Take a heaping helping of nuclear paranoia, add a dash of Ray Harryhausen magic for seasoning, and you've got 1955's It Came from Beneath the Sea, in which a giant octopus torments San Francisco after hydrogen bomb tests turn it into an enraged super-beast whose radioactive tentacles destroy the Golden Gate Bridge. It takes the heroic efforts of an intrepid submarine commander (and, ironically, a nuclear torpedo) to bring the movie's many-suckered antagonist down -- an inevitable defeat that was sort of a shame, according to critics like DVD Verdict's Erick Harper, who wrote that "The rest of the film -- plot, characters, script, and so forth -- is really just window dressing in this showcase for Harryhausen's amazing stop-motion puppetry."
