So many made for video movies following the 80s, although as least this era featured monster suits rather than horrible SYFY CGI. And they often assembled pretty good casts. This one boasts Peter Riegert (was a sarcastic police detective, which he seemed to play a ton of), Joan Severance, William Hickey, Laurence Tierney and Alexander Godunov.
Speaking of suits, is it possible that’s a reworked version of the monster from one of the Watchers movies? Or am I completely misremembering that beastie?
