Monster of the Day #992

OK, that’s genuinely nightmarish.

  • Seeing that in real life would be a heady experience.

    Putting the puns away for a moment, as I recall this doesn’t make a lick of sense narratively speaking. Why is Nessie growing these heads at all? Much less all the characters from the circus? Magic is fine and dandy, but even it needs some basis in logic.

  • SteveWD

    I always took it as just an affirmation that all the characters that were part of the circus (including Nessie) were Dr. Lao and vice-versa. Just a literal way to represent that idea.

    Boy…better hope he don’t run into Nick Fury.

    I only remember most of this film vaguely though I do remember I liked it, really need to re-watch it before too long!

    I believe you are correct except didn’t Nessie swallow Dr. Lao and it was kinda doing a rip off of “Little Shop of Horrors?”

    Nessie is the only circus feature where you see both it and Dr. Lao at the same time.

  • Sure it was. It’s just clumsy. A neat looking moment, but clumsy.


  • bgbear_rnh

    Well if D. Lao was inside it kinda makes sense, using his transforming magic inside the beast.
