"Cloudy with a Chance of Monsters"

Film: The Crawling Eye (1958)

Alias: The Trollenburg Terror

Type: Alien

Location: Mountain

Height/Weight: As big as Thanksgiving parade floats, but heavier.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Not all aliens come in fancy spaceships. Some prefer a stealthier approach. So why not conceal yourself as a big radioactive cloud, why don't you? That won't raise suspicion, right?

History: In Switzerland there is the Trollenberg mountain. It's nice for hiking, skiing, and even invading! Actually, that last one was instigated by a group of unearthly monstrosities that hovered over the mountain in their cloud form, waiting for the perfect time to attack and enslave the puny humans.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: After revealing themselves, it isn't long before they're bombarded with napalm and fire, destroying them all.

Powers/Abilities: The eyes can dissipate into a cloud for transportation and hiding. They can also control and manipulate those who are alive and dead.

Weakness: Anything conventional, but fire is the best.

Scariness Factor: 3-Despite a grotesque appearance and impressive array of powers, the fact that they blew their cover so quickly is a bit of a stain on their reputation, especially since they can be killed so easily.

Trivia: -The film was originally released as a 1956 Saturday serial.

-This was the last film produced by Southall Studios.

It began on Scary Face Mountain.

Nothing that some eye-moistener can't solve.

The Demon Brain, we have yet to see...
Why would you, ma'am, be indifferent to THIS?!


That's a bit...too close.

When H.P Lovecraft directs movies...

Some movies should NEVER be put to color.

"So, ready to be enslaved, you APE?!"

I knew the cloud was bad, but jeez!

"Knock, knock! Who's there? 'Tis EYE!"

"Great spot to chill and enslave, eh?"
