Films: Pod People (1983)
Alias: Trumpy and his moom
Location: Cave/Forest/Haunted home
Height/Weight: That of average humans.
Summary: Well, who'da'thunk that some wiseacre would try and capitalize on the success of "E.T."? Sounds really unlikely...not. Though in all fairness, that alien wasn't this murder-happy...
History: Somewhere in the forests of what we presume is California, something came from somewhere around the Big Dipper and crashed. Then an alien popped up in a cave with a clutch of eggs. Only one survived a hunter attack, and it somehow fell into the hands of a small child. While the mother alien went around killing everyone in her way, the egg hatched into a curious little thing called "Trumpy".
Notable Kills: At least one victim has the Big Dipper engraved on her head.
Final Fate: Mother and son reunite, but then she's gunned down by hunters. Trumpy is forced to part from his human friend and stake out a living in the woods.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 2-This thing looks like someone tried to give an old "Star Wars" background character his own movie. It hardly looks like something that could kill a man, even with those weird powers.
Trivia: -This film was actually meant to be a straight horror flick, but then "E.T." happened, and we got a tonally incoherent mess out of it.
-Honestly, the only reason we've heard about this film is the crew at "MST3K". And like them we say, "It Stinks!"
