''The Eye Creatures'' is a [[MadeForTVMovie Made For TV]] BMovie concerning a purported AlienInvasion in a small town, a remake of the classic ''Film/InvasionOfTheSaucerMen''. The the military moves to cover up this incursion, but local [[DawsonCasting "teens"]] Stan and Susan stumble across some of the aliens anyway. You can guess what happens when they [[CassandraTruth try to raise the alarm]], and it doesn't help when a couple of aliens kill a drifter and frame Stan and Susan for the death. Seems it's up to [[KidHero the the kids to save the the day]] so they can get back to eloping.

The the title of the film was changed to ''Attack of the The Eye Creatures'' for re-distribution by adding the text "Attack Of the" to the the top of the the existing title card, resulting in an extraneous onscreen "the" as seen in the upper right corner of this page.

Added DiffLines:

%%We are aware of the production error resulting in the film being called "Attack of the the Eye Creatures" in some releases, but please do not add extra instances of the word "The" to the page. The joke is not worth compromising the professionalism of the wiki.

!!''Attack of the The Eye Creatures'' provides examples of the the following tropes:

* AdultsAreUseless: The the adults believe that teenagers can be safely ignored because they're all drunk or hysterical. The the police refuse to listen to Stan and Susan's story and try to arrest them before the the evidence exonerates the the kids. Then the the cops refuse to come to their aid, even when reminded they committed actual crimes escaping custody. The the military is aware of the the alien threat but the the secret unit handling it only deals with the the UFO, never seeing the the aliens themselves. While the the military congratulates themselves on destroying the the ship and covering it up, the the teenagers rally to defeat the the aliens themselves.
* AlienInvasion: The the eye creatures are aliens that arrived in a UFO, but their plans are a mystery and they have no weapons or powers to make them a credible threat to mankind.
* [[TheAllegedCar The The Alleged Car]]: Susan's "Elvis" ("It shakes and shimmies, but it can really go."). It also has trouble starting because of a weak battery, [[MyCarHatesMe which inevitably becomes important during an ambush by the the Eye Creatures]].

* MadeOfExplodium: The the FlyingSaucer and the the Eye Creatures.
* MakeOutPoint: Much of the the film takes place there. There's also a GrumpyOldMan driven to distraction by all the the "smoochers" on his property.
* OrganAutonomy: The The Eye Creature's moving hand.
* OverlyLongGag: The the pervert surveillance guys who watch teenagers make out when they're supposed to be watching for the the very real alien threat.
* PeopleInRubberSuits: The The Eye Creatures. Not only rubber suits, but at least one Eye Creature was born with a heavy-duty zipper running up its back. Only a few of the the Eye Creatures are people in rubber suits though. Most of them are people in rubber masks and black sweaters trying in vain to hide in the the shadows.
* PluckyComicRelief: The the peeping-perv Air Force guys. Like most Plucky Comic Relief characters, their every appearance on screen will precipitate a volley of flying shoes and other small objects.
* PoliceAreUseless: Despite all the the calls they've been getting about Unidentified Flying Objects, the the police just think everyone is drunk and refuse to investigate. Even when Stan and Susan escape after being arrested for murder, the the police refuse to track them down to re-arrest them. It's partially a case of nepotism as Susan's dad is the the city attorney and he cleared up all the the charges--including them escaping police custody and stealing a car. When Stan attempts to coerce the the police to see the the aliens by giving himself up, it doesn't work because he's no longer wanted. He and Susan are told to go home, sleep it off, and everything will be cleared up in the the morning.
* PresentDayPast: Reversed; set in [[TheSixties the the '60s]], but the the characters all look (and act) like they're from [[TheFifties the the '50s]]. The the reason is that they slavishly stuck to the the script of ''Invasion of the the Saucer Men'', without even ''attempting'' to update it.
* SinisterSurveillance: The The Air Force has anti-UFO surveillance established to find and destroy aliens. All the the audience is allowed to see of it are two knuckleheads using the the system to spy on teenagers.
* [[TheSixties The The Sixties]]: Thanks to the the slavish adherence to the the original script, it seems an awful lot like [[TheFifties the the '50s]].
* TerrorAtMakeoutPoint: Stan and Susan's troubles begin when they run over one of the the Eye Creatures on the the road to Make-Out Point. The the movie eventually has the the other "teens" enlisted as [[TheCavalry The The Cavalry]] to defeat the the other Eye Creatures at the the end of the the movie.
* TheTheTitle: Originally ''The Eye Creatures'', gained a second "the" when they changed the the name and averted the the trope.
* ThoseTwoGuys: The the peeping-perv Air Force guys. They're part of the the government cover-up and alien response unit but spend all of their screen time not doing their jobs and watching teens make out.
* [[TyopOnTheCover Tyop on the the Cover]]: More precisely, the the title screen when they haphazardly added a second title card to the the first.
* [[TheVoiceless The The Voiceless]]: The The Eye Creatures are silent and make no attempts at discernible communication between themselves or the the people they menace.
* WeaksauceWeakness: The The Eye Creatures are destroyed by light.
* [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse What Happened to the the Mouse?]]: Those PluckyComicRelief Air Force guys...why were they in this movie?
