Monster of the Day #937

I always thought bugs this size were more disturbing than really giant ones.

  • Eric Hinkle

    I used to have nightmares about buggies like that one crawling under my bedsheets and, well, never mind. *shudder* I can;t guess the film but I imagine this is from the 80’s by the look.

  • Beckoning Chasm

    “Alien Predator” again, maybe? It’s a pity that film isn’t available anywhere, it looks worth a watch.

    Primitive facehuggers still have some evolving to do to get the big monkeys.

  • Flangepart

    Yeah, sure the big BIG bugs get all the attention, but a swarm of these nasty critters will get in where the big BIG bugs can’t. Kinda like the Blob, but with less slime.

  • Rock Baker

    I believe this one to be the film TICKS from about 1990.

  • Rock Baker

    Yeah, I always thought something that would be REALLY creepy would be a tarantula the size of a coffee table, rather than one the size of a barn.

  • Marsden

    Sometimes, the oysters fight back.

  • Eric Hinkle

    You mean like the first time we see the spider in the classic TARANTULA?

  • Rock Baker

    Supremely creepy stuff!

    My nightmares usually feature cat sized spiders. Giant bugs will kill you quickly by crushing, stabbing with their giant pincers (which might as well be construction equipment), etc. Smaller bugs will kill you slowly. How long would it take for a cat sized spider to liquify your insides and suck you dry?
