(rubs hands together) “Bwahahahaha. My GM spiders will soon spread around the state”
With a black and white version, it would fit nicely into a Quatermass episode. :-)
When they hatch, the cuites will be an anticlimax.
As we know, every monster movie ever made ends with a shot like this. “Oh my god, IT LAID EGGS!!!!”
I’m a little disappointed at the lack of a good jump-scare at the end, however. I think even some kind of old-school, practical effect would work here.
Sadly, the egg hatching trope has been ruined by the Alien prequels.
That Canadian SF author wrote a novel maybe 20 years ago about rather benign arachniform aliens, maybe they could make a film of that.
New idea: Feliform monsters. They would not even have to be too different from real cats.
Van Vogt’s The Voyage of the Space Beagle even had one of those, rather ruined by the unnecessary tentacles he added. No feline has ever needed extra tentacles to wreak havoc!
Hopeful twitching. Soon they will burst out and FEED
@ birgerjohansson : Er, one word :
Actually, been done quite a few times including the Cheetah People in Doctor Who (Sylvetser McCoy & Ace – last episode ‘Survival’ of the old Doctors pre Ecclestone reboot.), one of the humanoid-animaloid species onMongo with Flash Gordon (at least in animated cartoon TV series from the late 1970’s – early 80’s ) among others.
Eccleston! No final e!
Sorry to pick on you, StevoR, but it’s a pet peeve of mine that my first Doctor and still arguably my favorite is so prone to getting his name mangled.
I love McCoy too, though, and really appreciate the shoutout to ‘Survival’ and its Cheetah People (though I feel it’s worth adding the caveat that it would make a terrible introduction to 20th-century Doctor Who for anyone with no previous experience).
Neither spiders nor AI are as bad as humans
(Having said that, I would like to bring back Reagan, Pol Pot and Yaya Khan in this way)
Goddamn typo. It should have been “cuties” hatching in @2.
Seriously, you should GM them so they inherit the memories of the mother, like the offspring in Dune did if I recall correctly.
This raises challenges about brain size and complexity, oxygen transport et cetera, but if a bajillion B-films could pull it off, so can PZ.
