Storyline

A teenage couple making out in the woods accidentally runs over an alien creature with their car. The creature's hand falls off, but it comes alive, and, with an eye growing out of it, begins to stalk the teens. Meanwhile, Joe the town drunk wants to store the body in his refrigerator, but some of the alien's buddies inject alcohol into his system, and Joe dies of an overdose.

What a classic !
28 May 2003 | by ishmel51See all my reviews

I was 6 years old when I seen this film. It has to be one of the all time classic Science fiction flims. Low budget, campy,very very funny. A true fond memory of my past entertainment. It is worth seeing just because of the now, old cars in it !I wish more Science Fiction would stay like this.This is a must see for all you science fiction fans! BW flim fans!
