"Don't Tell Him That's Just a Lowercase L on the Head"

Films: Goke, Body Snatcher from Hell (1968)

Alias: Goke

Type: Alien

Location: Eldritch Location/Desert

Height/Weight: Formless without a host.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: If you thought the body snatchers from those Pods were bad...then you'd be very right. But get a load of these nuts. Japan, as usual, doesn't screw around when it comes to a bunch of foreign foes doing the hostile takeover.

History: The Gokemidoro are a race of vampiric, formless amoeba-like creatures that have presumably annihilated countless other species before. And now Earth was their target. When they show up, the sky turns a Hellish orange-red, some survivors of a plane crash are targeted, and the nightmare begins.

Notable Kills: See Powers/Abilities for how they go about "body-snatching".

Final Fate: After the Gokemidoro is done terrorizing the survivors, it returns to its ship to tell the others how easy that is. In no time at all, swathes of people have been infected and killed by the hoard, which warns a couple that their time as the dominant species on Earth is done. And judging by the army of saucers headed towards the planet, they aren't bluffing...

Powers/Abilities: Gokemidoro enter the human body by telepathically ripping vertical wounds in the human's forehead, and enter through there to assimilate the brain. When they're finished, they exit through the same way, and leave the body to literally crumple into dust.

Weakness: None.

Scariness Factor: 5-Nothing has been shown to kill the Gokemidoro, and they can kill of hundreds within minutes uninterrupted. These creatures sought out to do what the Pods couldn't, and they SUCCEDED! The most terrifying alien out there, and it's a pile of sentient silly-putty.

Trivia: -Based on some accounts, this was Quentin Tarantino's favorite film.

-The Gokemidoro at the end was voiced by Keiichi Noda, who would go on to voice Tetsuya Tsuragi, the main character of the Great Mazinger anime series.

And you thought the Daimon was bad.

A flight into the Hell from space...

No-one is safe.

Finally shown your pathetic true form?
Turns out, the alien was smart enough to not look like a decaying corpse monster.

Not ghothic, really. Apocalyptic is more like it.

It really can't.

Would you believe he's coming back with MORE?
