Monster of the Day #1698

Sorry for the disappearing act. Obviously a lot of it because of B-Fest (which was terrific), but there were also a few days where I just woke up late, etc. Also, it’s harder to just come up with a quick idea after 1700 of these.

This was the last movie at B-Fest. These guys are so hilariously human they barely seem like aliens. There were plenty of other monsters at the Fest, but again, they’d all been covered here before.

    I don’t know what it is about this movie, it just doesn’t resonate with me. Everyone else seems to love it, though.

    Very human. they actors really come through the make up. Without looking up was it Christopher Lloyd, Dan Hedaya, and Vincent Schiavelli?

    I still wonder about that watermelon.

    I loved these guys. I first saw this movie when I was in college (actually I’ve never seen it since) and for days afterward my friends and I would call each other “John – [whatever our particular vice was].”

    ‘REAL SOON!!!!!’

  • I don’t think you’ve done anything from “Blake’s 7” yet, but they are rather short on monsters and aliens. There’s quite a few good sci-fi / horror short films out there (see the YouTube channels “Dust” and “CGBros”, for example), but that would be getting really, really obscure.
