"The Killer and the Kinski"

Films: Creature (1985)

Alias: None

Type: Alien

Location: Haunted home

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Xenomorphs are cool and scary. Xenomorph impersonators trace a thin, thin line on being any of that. But you can't ever fault them for trying.

History: Somewhere on the Jupiterian moon known as Titan, an ancient lab houses a ferocious monster. A crew of researchers accidentally brought it with them to our own moon, where a distress signal is sent from. A few brave rescuers soon find that not only are most of the people there dead, but the beast is still there, infecting the dead and the living with mind-controlling parasites.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: The creature gets a bomb strapped to it, and even after being almost cast into space, it takes a bullet to set the bomb off, killing it.

Powers/Abilities: Its parasites put anyone under its command, living or dead.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 3.5-It's a wannabe Xeno, but any pretender to those horrors has got something going for them. This toothy monster won't stop at killing you. So long as it has some parasites, you can look forward to being its puppet.

Trivia: -Ironically, the effects artists for this film would go on to help with "Aliens".

-As if the monster wasn't a big enough nod to the deadliest creature in the galaxy, Kinski's character has the same initials as H.R. Giger.

Enroaching humans are such a bad alarm clock.

Even Klaus Kinski wants out.

Jupiter ain't hospitable. Human flesh, on the other hand...

Who invited him?

SomeBODY told me that Titan's gonna roll me...
Two sides, both horrifying enough to run away from.

Are they talking about the creature or Klaus Kinski?

Keep in mind. This is its handiwork.

A surefire sign that you're f&@$ed.
