"The trash of the Elder Gods"

Films: The Curse (1987)

Alias: None

Type: Alien

Location: Civilized area

Height/Weight: As big as a small boulder.

Affiliation: Neutral, leaning on Evil

Summary: Well, we can say one thing about this homicide-inducing meteor. At least no gooey monsters came out of it. But then again, would have that been better?

History: In the rural lands of Tennessee, a strange meteor crash lands near a farm. Pretty soon, it's leaking a bubbly liquid that seeps into the local water supply. This liquid poisons the water, renders crops large and rotten, and drives anyone and anything who ingests it completely insane.

Notable Kills: One person is mauled by liquid-infected dogs.

Final Fate: Eventually, everyone who's been infected with the liquid is killed in some way or another. However, the liquid shows signs of spreading.

Powers/Abilities: Spreads a liquid that destroys the life and sanity of anything it infects.

Weakness: None, though anything conventional works for those infected.

Scariness Factor: 4.5-In typical Lovecraftian fashion, the cosmic horror is one of the worst. It spreads easily, turns man against man, and is showing no sign of slowing down.

Trivia: -This film was based on H.P. Lovecraft's "The Colour Out of Space". It is one of the more faithful adaptations of his stories.

-Although it takes its plot mainly from a cosmic horror story, the director claims that it was properly inspired by the average farmer's social crisis during the Ronald Reagan years.
