  • This Time Terror Comes From Below
Movie Quote(s):
  • Jenny: It almost got Lisa. Lisa: No, it wanted Deputy Wargle first, it wants men like him most of all. Jenny: What do you mean it wants men like him? Lisa: Well, its the devil don't you think, come up from hell tonight? I think he wants to dance with us.
  • Copperfield: Just what is this thing? Flyte: Chaos, chaos in the flesh.
  • Sheriff Bryce Hammond: All right, enough. [shouts] Sheriff Bryce Hammond: Enough! It's not a god, it's not a devil. It's just a fucking animal, and any living thing can be killed. Timothy Flyte: But this thing is what wiped out the dinosaurs! Which were pretty tough fucking customers!
  • Hammond: If we keep our heads straight, we'll get out of here, I promise you. Jenny: How can you be so sure? [Hammond shows her a candy wrapper fortune that reads "Luck is on your side."]
  • General Copperfield: The first thing we'd like to know is what we're dealing with, biological, chemical, or other. Sheriff Hammond: Well, I'm leaning towards other.
Movie Trivia:
  • The "flatworm theory" used in the movie (that flatworms can eat the remains of their own kind and absorb their knowledge) is based on actual tests given to flatworms which involved seeing how quickly they would make the "correct" turn at a Y-intersection after eating the previous experimenters. The results were more inconclusive than the film says.
  • The lizard that the creature's "tissue sample" takes the form of is a leopard gecko.
