Monster of the Day #1241

A very good job of representing the monsters accurately while not revealing that they are basically made of garbage bags.

Mr. Kallis must have used a model for the woman like the one in the foreground, because otherwise not emphasizing Yvette Vickers more seems inexplicable.

  • Ah, a horror movie about politicians. Now that’s a chilling flick.

  • CaptNemo

    The screenplay was originally titled “Class Action Lawsuit.” Then it was titled “The Night of the Councillors” and then it was titled “Attack of the Attorneys.” Then it was shortened up to the current title.

    The least cute movie blood suckers ever. Still, budget wise…nice use of a plastic bag and some tape.

  • bgbear_rnh

    dude, that is so macro-aggressive

  • bgbear_rnh

    I bet these are the suckers that got George Washington.

  • CaptNemo

    I’m saving my best stuff for Michael Landon’s little-known werewolf sequel “I was a Twentysomething Social Parasite.”

  • bgbear_rnh

    aka “Little Louse of the Dole”

  • Rock Baker

    Actually, the suits were made from plastic raincoats!

  • Rock Baker

    Well, Yvette is on the poster. She’s the one hugging the rock. When I met Yvette, I noticed that she had some special stills made up which had one of her pinup shots superimposed over the one sheet.

    Sweetest, most charming and gracious lady I have ever met. I will always count that meeting as one of the top ten moments of my life on this earth.

    Plastic bags seem so much a part of modern life we forget they were not really sold for general home use until about 1968-69.

  • The inventiveness of S/F artists knows no bounds.

  • I have nothing further to add. I just came back here from Ain’t It Cool News, because I wanted to bask in the presence of a comment section that didn’t make me want to bash my head against my desk.

  • Marsden

    I understand. I tend to avoid most other sites comments, I wonder why I wasted that amount of eye strength and time reading something so annoying. I’m grateful we have this little haven.

  • Eric Hinkle

    Given some of the comments I’ve just seen elsewhere relating to last night’s events, I agree with you 110%, sir.

  • Amen, and thrice AMEN!!!

  • Although I can’t decide which is worse, the comments sections that make me want to claw other people’s eyes outs, or the brilliant ones full of smart people that trap me for hours reading their fab material and refusing to make the section dumber with my own contributions. Case in point, since the whole Sad Puppies thing this year I’ve been addicted to Sarah Hoyt’s blog. Great stuff, but I can get lost for hours in the (admittedly fabulous) comment threads.

    “Respectful Insolence” (for the medically inclined) does me the same way. Great articles on Science Based Medicine, even better long-winded discussions of same in the comments, I get lost for days.

    I’d get lost for days here, but you asshats aren’t nearly long-winded enough lately. Y’all need to get on the ball!

    Disclaimer for this getting WAY off topic: GJ is bored, 2/3 of the way through an extremely long, excessively stupid drill weekend, and has no sense of scale or decorum left. Also she can neither confirm nor deny that tequila is involved at this very moment. Bad officer. No biscuit.

  • Biscuits are bad for me anyway. Although I think I know where I can find a Hardees.

  • Now I really want biscuits. Dammit!

  • Luke Blanchard

    This one is gorgeous. And the monsters really look like that!

  • sandra

    The movie is terrible but Bruno Ve Sota ( hope I got the name right) gives a good performance as Yvette Vickers’ cuckolded husband.

  • rtpoeman

    With or without gravy?
