Oh if only the move lived up to the poster… It is better than the cheapo made for late night tv remake Attack Of The The Eye Creatures.

And before anyone corrects me two THEs is correct.

Oh man, I wrote a whole research paper on Kallis once.

This poster is also notable as it was the inspiration for Morbo.

Just a reminder:

#5

That’s was more than the movie grossed.


#6

I had no idea about any of this.


#7

Spawning generations of butthead aliens.


#8

I don’t have that sort if money, but if I did I could totally see $100 large for this one.


#9

If you can’t afford the original artwork that Morbo was based on it’s still not too late to buy a copy of the Alex Schomburg comic book that inspired Bender. Bidding is currently under $8K!

Somehow I’ve never watched even 90 seconds of Futurama, but this is awesome!


#11

Do you still have a copy?


#12

That’s a good question. I wrote that paper for a college class so the original file is probably on a 3 1/2” floppy disk somewhere.


#13

I’ve still got hardware that can read those.
Well, depending on the OS/format.


#14

Why do Aliens always want our Females?


#15

Not just Aliens. Also robots, vampires, apes, mad scientists, reanimated corpses, Colossal Men, octopuses, crabs, ants, spiders, werewolves, mole people, Fire Demons and Creatures from the Black Lagoon.

You could say this has been a recurring theme since at least The Rape of the Sabine Women in 1583 and probably much earlier.
