I'm ashamed that I didn't recognize Them, i keep looking for War of the Worlds or Plan 9 from Outer space hidden in there.

Limited to 18, could have done many more. I have one for the 1970s which features 23 films which I will post fairly soon.

All correct. Just four left to identify. An American sci-fi film that had an 80s remake, an American film noir that was directed by a famous actor (his only film directional job), a French noir love triangle film with a nasty twist, and a film based on an M.R James story (with a famous line of dialogue sampled in a Kate Bush song in 1985).

Wait, hmm, is the M.R. James one Night of the Demon a.k.a. Curse of the Demon? I vividly remember Niall MacGinnis (from Jason and the Argonauts and Island of Terror) playing the villain in that, but I'm blanking on the hero.

Correct on The Blob and Night of the Demon - Dana Andrews was the hero in that. You'll find the answers to the other two in some of the other responses. They are both more noir thrillers with horror elements than out and out horror films.

I wanna say the first one you mentioned is The Blob (?), since that kinda looks like McQueen between Godzilla and the giant octopus from It Came from Beneath the Sea. The others I'm blanking on.

I see the fly in there, i think that other is a mummy, the center in invasion of the body snatchers, i want to say the one next to Godzilla is the blob? I'm ashamed I should know all of these.

The guy in the upper left is an American actor in a British film, an adaption of an M.R. James story. The Man with X-Ray Eyes is not correct (that's 1963 anyway), it's from a noir French film dated 1955. The rest are absolutely correct.

Ah, it must be Diabolique then. I don't recognize that exact moment from Night of the Demon but, if it's from a James adaptation from the fifties, then that must be it.

The 11 you've named are correct. There's a third Christopher Lee in there too.

Let's see...At the top, we have Godzilla 1954, the giant octopus from "It Came From Beneath the Sea", and the Gill-man from "Creature from the Black Lagoon".
I can also identify a soldier using a flamethrower on one of "Them"s" giant ants, the transforming Victor Caroon from the Quatermass Xperiment (called The Creeping Unknown in America), The Rhodosaurus from the "Beast from 20 000 Fathoms", the Thing from another World being set on fire, Christopher Lee as both Dracula and Hammer's first Frankenstein monster, Peter Cushing as Hammer' sociopathic Baron Frankenstein, The Incredible Shrinking Man, and the spider being napalmed at the end of Tarantula.

This is absolutely outstanding. Love the subject matter. Let's see, how many can I name?
Godzilla
The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms
It Came From Beneath The Sea
Creature From The Black Lagoon
The Fly
Them!
Um... Is that The Thing From Another World on the bottom right, just below the scissors? I haven't seen that one yet.
And I'm guessing the legs burning down there are from one of the spider movies? Tarantula or Earth vs. The Spider? Neither of which I've seen yet.

The Thing from Another World is in there, but not where you have located it. The figure below the scissors is from a Hammer horror film. :-)

Taranturla, The Fly, Godzilla, The Creature from the black lagoon, Them. There are more that look familiar, but I can't pinpoint them.

Interesting Fun Fact: "Them" is called "Formicula" here in germany.
