Films: Night Fright (1967)
Height/Weight: Slightly larger than an average human.
Summary: Sending animals out into space usually accomplishes...well, it seems fun. After all, if an animal can do it, so can we. Then again, we aren't sending them out to get mutated these days, are we?
History: Project Noah's Ark was an experiment to see how different animals reacted to cosmic radiation. After spending six months in space, one mutant alligator in the pod rose above the rest, ate them, and waited until the pod came crashing down into a place called Satan's Hollow. Predictably, it helped that place deserve its namesake with a killing spree. Also, it looked like an ape for some reason.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: The beast is eventually led in by the authorities by a fake mannequin of a girl victim...with bombs attached to it. Both go boom.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 2.5-Perhaps it would be more frightening if we could actually see it?! The darkness is so bad in shots that only a select few scenes can properly show it. And even then, it stinks! An okay monster, though.
Trivia: -Sending animals into space is a very trial-and-error thing. Remember Laika? Turns out, no one expected the dog to survive, and she went out within hours of being in space. Bummer.
-Satan's Hollow is an actual place, but it's really a nickname given to some drainage tunnels in Blue Ash, Ohio that are allegedly the gathering place of a bunch of Satanists.
