Monsters Toying with Trains YKTTW Discussion
|Monsters Toying with Trains|
A stock scene in horror movies involving a giant monster playing with a train like a child's toy.
- ''Helpless people on subway trainsScream "My God!" as he looks in on them...
- Blue Öyster Cult, "Godzilla"
- The Trope Maker is probably the original Godzilla, at least in the sense that almost every other portrayal since is probably an homage to this film.
- Happens in the 1976 remake of King Kong during his rampage while looking for Dwan.
- One that riffs on the whole idea:
Godzilla: Have you ever eaten train before?King Kong: It's just like lobster; you crack it open and eat the insides.
- The music video for The Apples in Stereo's "Signal in the Sky (Let's Go)" has a monster which does this.
- As noted in the page quote, this trope is lampshaded in the Blue Oyster Cult song "Godzilla."
