THE DEADLY SPAWN / Filmline - 1983

It's Raunchy Monster Monday with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. We gots an insane little flick shot in Gladstone, New Jersey, made for a puny $25,000! They obviously spent every last cent on teeth for the biting invaders.

Eegah!! sent over a little soundclip of the theme and more, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there by the big set of alien braces, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula! Here's our audio offering for... THE DEADLY SPAWN!

Well, the story starts off really great, we get to check out the eighties wallpaper, that girl's see-thru nightgown and her permed, big hair!

Then, all Bloody Hell breaks loose!! The basement in the house is now infested by a hungry alien that came in as a spore on a meteorite from space!

And, there are lots of these little ones swimming around in the water!! ALIEN had come out just four years earlier.

In an odd situation, the young kid seems immune from the terror beasts, he's able to stand there and watch the destruction without the fear of being chomped on!

Later, one of the little varmits got into this lady's blender and her girlfriends get a nasty taste of it in their food!.. GROSS!!

Then, what do you think happens next?.. Correct!

Two things about this photo... 1. Look at that great poster of THE SPIDER! 2. And, look at that guy's embarrassingly dorkafied overalls!

A friend drops in for a minute and gets her head bitten off in two shakes of a monster's tail! To add insult to injury, her body then falls out the window!

The kid figures out that electric shock is the thing's worst enemy. He puts a broken lamp into a monster mask and feeds it to the monster, then plugs it in!

Barbecued alien's ready to serve, grab your plate and come a-runnin'!

The cops show up and bring their industrial strength electrodes to stun kill the things, the neighbors help gather up and burn all the little critters that ended up getting out of the house!

Oops, sequel anyone?!.. See you again on Wednesday when Eegah!! will invade this space!

My brother and I saw this in the theater. As we were walking out, one of the Ushers going in to clean up must have seen our faces and said, rather sarcastically, "Glad you enjoyed the movie, guys". I've come to appreciate the film a little more since then

Whoa! I thought this type of movie was far too gruesome for the dungeon!

Hey Greg, we're trying to be as complete as possible with the subject and have more coming, it's my job to deal with the later stuff.
