What's better than watching movie with a vagina-shaped alien dismembering humans in a basement during a thunderstorm? Typically, the answer would be "NOTHING!" But in the case of this movie, the answer is: "NOTHING! Unless it was made for less than the price of a new washer/dyer combo." You're in luck.

Douglas McKeown's THE DEADLY SPAWN is the epitome of 1980s homemade horror filmmaking. When an extraterrestrial meteorite unleashes a carnivorous beast on an unsuspecting New Jersey town, no one is safe. Grandmas, a horror-movie-obsessed-little-kid, and everyone in-between are fair game for this unstoppable eating machine and its leech-like minions. Crammed with ambition, unbelievable latex effects, and brutal gore, DEADLY SPAWN builds a special, self-contained universe and holds no ties to rational thought. If perfection existed, this movie would eat it for breakfast. (Joseph A. Ziemba)
