I just watched the 1988 remake of this classic. I’d forgotten what a great little creature feature this is. The cast of character actors really rises to the occasion in this uniquely self-aware film. What really makes it, though, are the physical effects. They’re fantastically vile and gross, and therefore perfect. Skin gets melted, arms are ripped off, and organs liquefied. In other words; my definition of a good time.
