Obviously, someone much smarter than you or I determined that many more people in your neck of the woods would be attracted to "monsters" as opposed to "Humanoids"
This is probably among the many decisions made about film marketing such as dubbing the movie Mad Max
from Australian English into American English or putting quotation marks aound the word "Crocodile" in the movie Crocodile Dundee
so that American audiences wouldn't think it was about a real crocodile. I'm frequently insulted by marketing changes. I'd like to see the works are the directors/producers/writers intended but sometimes it's just not to be.
