What the Hell was that Movie?

During the Mid-90s era of The Wave, I spent a lot of time alone in front of the TV watching whatever movies were on Showtime and The Movie Channel. I watched a shit load of late night karate movies, but an alarming amount of monster flicks. One of those films revolved around a humanoid monster roaming through a small town killing people. For one of the kills, the monster shoved its arm through a person’s chest from behind and then pulled it back out. When the body was discovered by the local cop he exclaimed, “the force required to remove your arm after that is impossible! No human could have done that!”…or something to that effect. In my mind’s eye, I see a 12-14 year old me watching this. That puts us at ’94-’96ish. However, being that it was most likely on a cable movie channel, it was probably at least a few years old by that point. I’ve been hunting for the name of this movie since, and have made it a goal to watch every creature feature from 1999 and before until I find it.

If anyone has any ideas that may end my (but mostly Amy’s) pain, please let me know…

Below is my hell…

P.S. Most of these flicks have an impression tied to them on one of the site’s movie posts. I highly suggest checking those out. We’ve watched a bunch of movies in recent years…

It does have one of the most epic fight scenes I’ve ever seen, though. Also, J. J. Abrams worked on both Sound Department and Original Music.



The expedition continues…

  1. Pumpkinhead is one of those token 80’s horror films that doesn’t get a great deal of praise. Anyone that watches this will realize it’s one of Stan Winston’s best.
