“Climate strange”

Films: Heatstroke (2008)

Alias: None

Type: Alien

Location: Jungle

Height/Weight: That of average humans.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Aliens didn't even have to wait for a very special something to kill us all. We are of course talking about climate change. No matter how much those stubborn boomers (not all of them, mind you) try to moan about how it doesn't exist, it's right f*cking there. Or, you know, aliens could weaponize it.

History: Not too long ago, a bunch of saurian aliens showed up to speed up global warming so that not only would they have a more suitable environment for themselves, but because they knew we wouldn't stand a chance. Except insects. They need those.

Notable Kills: All it takes is one talon to kill someone dead.

Final Fate: After their base is exposed, the aliens are all killed either by gunfire or that missile that blew their facility up, saving the Earth.

Powers/Abilities: These aliens can generate enough heat to make them hot to the touch. They also have large and disgusting worms to control people with.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 2-The CGI is probably the most laughable thing seen in this entire year. Not once do the otherwise weird lizard aliens look like they're in the picture at all. Also, for all their mastery of heat and mind-control, they go out like chumps.

Trivia: -This film was made mostly by the same crew behind the "Farscape" series. Trust us when we say that that's a better usage of your time...probably.

-This film premiered in the US in 2008, but didn't show up in Europe until all the way in 2014.

Turns out, they could have just waited for us to burn our planet alive. But no.
"You see, anime was not a mistake."

"Who makes these outdated things anymore?! Anybody who drives a jeep is bound to be a lesser species!"
"Now, listen her-OH, GEEZ! I am so sorry!"

"The rest is silence..."

They must have missed out on the invention of the gun.
