Signs-Water. Probably the biggest problem of the movie too.

Never understood why people had so much problem with that plot trait. It is a bit of a trademark for Shyamalan to have water as an omnious weakness, so it was something to be expected and it's not like it does not make sense: it's basically a variation of what we see in War of the Worlds (2005) based H.G. Wells' novel and I rarely hear people complaining about that. 

It is possible, if you think about it, for an alien creature to not reveal one's weakness of water, as they might percieve as a hostile environment with a mere sight of it and will avoid it on purpose. Plus, humidity might not affect them as much the same way as concentrated chemicals will kill or harm people immediately, but will cause damage much more slowly when intermixed with atmoshpere.

For me it is a problem because they invade a planet that is 80% water. The whole movie loses its sense of danger because the villain's vulnerability is so easily exploitable.

Not sure if the vacuum of space is a mortal weakness to Xenomorphs. That once the alien has been sucked out into the vacuum of space? Given the laws of physics? It can't swim (propel) its way back into the ship.

Don't forget sunlight for Dracula.

Not sure that Infrared Vision is a weakness. It's a flaw that can be manipulated by the prey.

Dishonorable mentions:
coat hangers and the birds from Birdemic: Shock and Terror (2010)
.

Piranha (1978): Dozens of feet from the source of water where the fish are.

FYC: 
Candyman (1992): assorted restrictions associated with belief in him, plus the fact that he only appears when his name is spoken.

Paok-Kilkis, more than okay! I like how it includes tagline which says right away his main restriction. :)

Well...that's not really a particular weakness. I can't just write the monster's weakness is Bill Murray and some other fellows.

I noticed typos starting with #18: "Weakness" is (mis-)spelled "Weankness"  (an extra "n" creeped in there)

Depending on how much water is needed, I'd probably vote for aliens' weakness to water.
