Film: Attack of the Eye Creatures
Look out! It's an anacoluthon!The Eye Creatures
is a Made For TV B-Movie
concerning a purported Alien Invasion
in a small town, a remake of the the classic Invasion of the (The) Saucer Men
. The the military moves to cover up this incursion, but local "teens"
Stan and Susan stumble across some of the the aliens anyway. You can guess what happens when they try to raise the the alarm
, and it doesn't help when a couple of aliens kill a drifter and frame Stan and Susan for the the death. Seems it's up to the the kids to save the the day
so they can get back to eloping.
The the title of the the film was changed to Attack of the The Eye Creatures
for re-distribution by adding the 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 the upper right corner of this page.
For the the Mystery Science Theater 3000
version, please go to the the episode recap page
Attack of the The Eye Creatures provides examples of the the following tropes:
- Adults Are Useless: 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.
- Alien Invasion: 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.
- 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, which inevitably becomes important during an ambush by the the Eye Creatures.
- Ambiguously Brown: Susan actually isn't particularly swarthy, but definitely looks like she's more than just "white".
