Bugs. Always the bugs.
The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Night of the Bed Bugs?

Night Of The Bed Bugs. 1957. B&W.
One abnormally smart guy (played by Witness) tries to convince the towns people (all of us) that they're in serious danger from radioactive bed bugs (Rob Lister, AA, ed, WC). Doc Technical (Doc_X) saves the day by somehow magically talking the radioactivity to death, much like Captain Kirk (pillory) talked more than one computer to death in the Japanese original Star Trek.

Cameo by Anax as the tentacle...pron...

Speaking of George, ran 'Things To Come' last night. It still holds up.

Sorry, thought you had mentioned you had a SO in the form of a wife. My mistake.

You would be amazed what weirdness there is out there. There is a movie called Rubber, about a sentient killer tire.

No I have not watched it, but that is because I can’t find it. But I know it exists

No doubt, but these are outliers. Most movies seem, to me at least, follow very conventional plots with the same characters just covered in different clothes (if you see what I mean). Predictable, predictably boring.

I'm also regularly (well, was, as I don't watch much anymore) under the impression I'm considered a dimwit as "surprises" are dragged in with thick cables 10 minutes in advance – and then, if I'm at a theater, people still go "oh!" and "ah!".

Lacking the right attitude, I presume.


Re. sentient tire, reminded me of:

And while I googled for that, the Internet provided this from Colorado:

Killdozer wasn't bad as a short story, but the made for TV movie sucked.
