The story is about an UFO that releases a giant caterpillar-like monster who begins eating random people. It turns out that [[spoiler: the monsters (there's a second one inside the ship) are actually robots sent to analyze human beings for aliens. Although the monsters are destroyed by the end, the spaceship still beams its collected data into space]]...

* HollywoodTactics: Apparently infantry engagement rules in the 50's required soldiers to stand tightly clumped-together and fire at the enemy from ''seven feet away''. Col. Caldwell only thinks to use a grenade after his entire squad is eaten.

Added DiffLines:

* SoundtrackDissonance: Most of the scenes with the monster eating people are set to jazz music. Completely takes away from the scariness of the situation.

* SocietyMarchesOn: Of course, but it's amusing to see a car with "23 Skiddoo" and other archaic jargon painted all over it.

* TokenRomance: During the party, one character is stewing about her boyfriend standing her up, then a pair of guys duking it out while the monster rampages. [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment This subplot is suddenly introduced and vanishes just as quickly.]]

* TooDumbToLive: Almost all of the victims tend to stand in place and scream rather than flee the easily outrunable creature, except the ones in cars. [[UpToEleven They just kind of sit there and scream, even though they could outspeed the monster by at least 1000%]]. The monster design pretty much makes it impossible to eat anyone without their willing assistance.
