"Get Martha and the Vandellas on the Line"

Films: Night of the Big Heat (1967)

Alias: None

Type: Alien

Location: Eldritch Location/Cave

Height/Weight: That of a cave.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Gee, it sure is hot out there. Might as well wait this heatwave out for some-wait. What do you mean the heatwave is following you guys? What could you possibly...what the Hell is that?

History: A nomadic race of creatures, these jellyfish-like aliens came from the stars, seeking a world they could envelop in pure energy and heat. They made landfall on the Scottish island of Fara, where their ensuing heatwave immediately became a problem.

Notable Kills: They literally make you so hot, you cease to exist. It's almost as bad as the sweat stains on the shirts here!

Final Fate: After a dynamite-related scheme fails, the aliens are almost immediately felled by copious amounts of rainfall. Gee, some invasion.

Powers/Abilities: These aliens can cause full-scale heatwaves that cause lots of damage in the right circumstances. They can even focus this heat into a weapon for direct combat, and are immune to bullets and the like.

Weakness: They are attracted to heavy energy sources, and cannot stand water, or anything else cold.

Scariness Factor: 2.5-They had so much potential, with their heat-related powers, but in the end, a weakness to water is just unacceptable. Maybe it would have been grander while it lasted if they came during a dry season.

Trivia: -The human body can withstand temperatures up to 131 degrees Fahrenheit before giving out (so long as he/she is not dehydrated).

-The original title for this film was "Island of the Burning Damned", but due to confusion with "Island of Terror", the title was changed to "Island of the Burning Doomed".

Too late for Lee, I guess.
You can see why they changed the title to something less ridiculous.
