Not to be confused with Spalding Gray's ''[[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0102467/ Monster In a Box]]'', which is a ''completely'' different film.

A 1986 monster movie spoof by {{Troma}} in which the eponymous creature emerges from its lair (guess where [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin that is]]) and begins slaughtering citizens in a small Californian town. It's up to would-be newspaper reporter Richard Clark and scientist Diane Bennett to find a way of killing it. Very very campy, but doesn't take itself at all seriously, and is amusing if viewed in the right frame of mind.

* FridgeLogic: Why would a blind person have a lamp on in his house?
