A group of young shopping mall employees stay behind for a late night party in one of the stores. When the mall goes on lock-down before they can get out, the robot security system malfunctions, and goes on a killing spree.
Two campers in the New Jersey woods have their outdoor fun interrupted by the arrival of a meteorite crashing nearby. They go to investigate the crater, but are suddenly attacked and devoured by alien parasites who have hitched a ride to Earth. After finishing off the campers, the hungry space monsters head for a nearby town, where they make their domain in the basement of an old house soon begin polishing off one hapless inhabitant after another. Four young teenagers, plus one pre-teen boy, try to find a way to stop the angry space monsters before they reproduce and literally eat humanity.Written by

[looking at Bunny's ceramic animals]
I've never seen this giraffe before.
Don't you just love him?
Do you know what I've always wanted?
A really handsome gorilla.
A gorilla! But, they don't seem to make fine ceramics of the great apes, for some reason. They are our nearest relations, you know, the great apes. But they never left the proverbial Garden of Eden like we did. Did you know he's a vegetarian?

The Synapse DVD release includes a cut of the film that is slightly extended. Near the film's conclusion, we see a number of 'reaction' shots of the surviving characters being taken away in ambulances and police cars, including a very shell-shocked Charles. An alternate opening sequence is included as an extra and not as part of the complete film, but it's nearly identical to the original version, with a few minor changes to the special effects, sound effects, and the opening titles.

Before the Slugs, Slither n Night of the Creeps, there were these slimy creatures with hell lottuva teeth. Watch out for the decapitation n defenestration scenes.
I first saw this in the mid 80s on a vhs.
Revisited it recently.
The initial kills r offscreen with jus blood on the ground, on the spectacles, on the bulb n on the wall with lots of slurping noise but the film does get gory later but nowhere tensed or fast paced.
A woman's face gets munched upon by an alien suffering from bruxism.
An old uncle gets devoured by the aliens offscreen.
A teenager gets decapitated by an alien's teeth n the aftermath defenestration scene of the rubber body will make u lol.
The salad scene from the film Slugs was inspired by a similar scene from this film.
Inspite of the running time only 82 mins, the film gets tedious considering the old ladies' chit chat n the teenagers conversations.
