Gosh, I love the weekends when SciFi channel shows movies with the most remarkable films. Don't you just love the giant bugs? The movie industry has been creating bigger and badder bugs ever since I was a little kid.
Makes you wonder what goes on in the minds of the people who make these flicks. I know I would hate to be scooped up by a giant spider, injected with her eggs, and wrapped up in layer after layer of sticky silk. Makes my skin crawl.
The thing about scifi movies is that they are not nearly as scary as monster movies, you know the ones, where demented or infected people actually go off the wall and mutilate other specimens of the human race. Those pics are really scary. One of those defectives could really hurt you and they aren't so far-fetched that one can't imagine one such living next door.
I don't worry so much about scifi bugs. They may be big. They may look mean, but they are gone when you shut off the tube and go make tuna sandwiches.
OK, so you don't like bugs. You don't have to. Just stay on the sunny side if you can. Cheers! Terry
