Films: The Crawling Hand (1963)
Location: Civilized Area
Height/Weight: That of an average human arm.
Summary: Someone give this alien a medal for creativity! Despite being, well, an arm, this thing managed to kill people at a fairly decent rate.
History: The ripped off arm of a deceased astronaut, a teen managed to get ahold of this thing for his own reasons. Unfortunately, a malevolent alien had possessed the arm, and was starting to possess him (making him look like a crack addict) as the arm began its own killing spree.
Notable Kills: This thing can strangle without a body to propel it. Neat, and a little dumb!
Final Fate: The teen breaks free, eventually, and begins to wail on the crawling hand with his fists and broken glass. The bloodied arm is then feasted upon by a bunch of stray cats.
Powers/Abilities: The alien possessing this arm can possess others in a current form as well.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 3-When someone's out to strangle you, at least you can see the one trying to do it. This arm relies on sneak-attacks most of the time, and looks rather unsettling as it crawls across surfaces.
Trivia: -This film was co-written by Joe Cranston, the father of Bryan Cranston.
-This was the last film to star actor Syd Saylor.
