Famous Monsters is a 1999 album by the Misfits. It is the second in the post-Danzig era of the band, and the last album with new frontman Michale Graves who would quit the band in 2000. The album's title is an allusion to the horror magazine Famous Monsters of Filmland.

The song "Scream!" was turned into a music video directed by George A. Romero. In addition, the band appeared in Romero's film Bruiser. Kong at the Gates was the theme music for WCW alumnus Vampiro.
