It, the one that came form outer space

First appearance: It Came from Outer Space (1953)

Some weird-looking space monsters accidentally crash on Earth. The commit identity theft on some of the locals, because they know that earth people would attack and kill them because they are weird-looking, in order to repair their space-ship. The locals don't take kindly to the identity theft and attempt to attack and kill the aliens. So the aliens threaten to blow up the planet.
It's kind of like a cross between The Brain from Planet Arous and The Day the Earth Stood Still. Just not as Bizarre as the former and not as preachy as the later.

This movie was originally in 3-D!

First appearance: Gremlins (1984)

A horrifying film about not following the instructions that come with your Christmas presents.
Things in Kingston Falls are pretty rough, even before the cute little critter spawns its horrifying malevolent brood. There seems to be a large number of people who're are close to loosing their homes to a woman who wants to throw a dog in a drier just because he broke a cheap looking snowman. A woman hates Christmas because her father died in a chimney. A man is forced to work in a bank even though he's trying to be an illustrator.  Its always been one of my favorites.

This is the second time I've payed tribute to this movie. First time I went with the Mogwai stage of the creature. Geez, it was six years ago:
