Here's a flick that seems to be a mix of ALIEN and THE INCREDIBLE MELTING MAN! After these and STAR WARS came out, Hollywood didn't have a brain of their own any more, original thoughts were just crammed into a black hole somewhere and stealing ideas became the norm. This story's about toxic waste being dumped near a small Idaho town that turns a young boy into a slimy mutant monster. The police chief and a government scientist team up to stop the monster, which is quickly killing off the town's citizenry.
^^This film was made in 1980 as EASTER SUNDAY, but, sat on the shelf for three years before finally received a brief theatrical release as THE BEING!
I have a sound clip for your approval, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button located there by our mutant bean, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula!.. Here's a sample from... THE BEING!
Have you ever been to a drive-in movie?.. There aren't many left, they were a real trip. Here, there's a horror flick playing and all the teens are there, it features nudity!!
Anyway, it looks scarier than Hell...
These hick dudes are getting high on weed... Far out, man! When the driver is dragged off by the monster, that's the look on the stoned out hippie's face!
Here's Martin (SPACE: 1999) Landau giving an interview to the TV reporter, there's also a parade going on in Pottsville, Idaho, today.
We love Ruth Buzzi, here's a nice shot of her as social busy body, Virginia Lane.
Martin is thrown to the monster for a sympathy kill (Oh, no... not Martin!). Killing off a hero is an old gimmick for audience sympathy, like in THE BRAIN EATERS, THE FLAME BARRIER and THEM!
Bill Osco is Martin's helper, things don't look that great for him either!
Beat the Hell up, Bill grabs some bottles of sulfuric acid and break them on the monster's head, slowing the thing down a few notches.
Bill finishes the job by using his trusty ax to chop it to pieces, bringing the movie and this post to an end! Now, we can only imagine what Eegah!! has for us on Wednesday...
