That's the tag line for the 1982 camp classic Parasite, which was basically a bargain basement ripoff of Alien, and which featured the bizarre cast of Demi Moore, Cherie Currie, and Vivian Blaine.

But it's a great tag line.

Let's think of some other great lines that could sum up a movie (whether real or imaginary).

Before you do that, let me whet your kitsch quotient by telling you some other actual ones I found on a shelf somewhere by the highway:


*"The dogs of hell walk the earth--the devil strides beside...."

(A Killing Affair with Peter Weller and Kathy Baker)


*"A hearing impaired football player encounters prejudice."

(Choices with Demi Moore--yep, her again--and Victor French)


*"He bought a miracle of science...with his soul."

(Chiller with Paul Sorvino and Michael Beck)


Your turn.

Holy hell!  Viviane Blaine and Demi Moore?  Am I dreaming?   Actually I'd rather seen Viviane Blame co-staring in Strip Tease

I actually saw Parasite at the movie theater when it came out!  It was in 3-D!  I was already familiar with  Demi Moore from General Hospital.  God, I'm old.
