* SkywardScream: Dr. Coleye does this during his EvilLaugh
to:
* ShoutOut: Many references to the original 1960s television series. ** The design for the alien monster [[spoiler: Lizzie]] turns into near the end of the film is actually based on the "monster from The Id" from [[Film/ForbiddenPlanet Forbidden Planet]]. * SkywardScream: Dr. Coleye does this during his EvilLaughEvilLaugh.

Added DiffLines:
* SkywardScream: Dr. Coleye does this WhatTheHellHero: [[spoiler: Lizzie during her time as an alien monster after chewing on Veenox 7 gum.]] During her time as the monster, she apparently had no problem swallowing a SETI {{Mook}} whole, even though he was defenseless and running for his EvilLaughlife. The fact that the incident is never brought up again afterwards is jarring.

* TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody: Not directly stated, but there are implications that Nerplex does simply more than alters one's physical appearance into another being. The most notable incident is when Lizzie chews the Veenox 7 gum, and seems to have no problem with killing one guard, and eating another while as that alien. This even seemed to carry over when she reverts back to being human. ** Though this may only be trait specific to Veenox 7, which would explain why Martin was so heedful when mentioning it.
