YMMV: The Creeping Terror
  • Ass Pull: Seriously, the twist at the end does not make sense. It just comes right the fuck out of nowhere.
  • Nightmare Retardant
    Mike: The "creeping" part is apt, but the "terror" is just not happening.
  • Special Effect Failure: The titular "terror" is a space creature who eats people has people climb up into its maw.
    • A monster made primarily out of carpeting. Supposedly, the people operating it often suffered from heatstroke.
  • Troubled Production: The original monster design was lost, the original soundtrack to the movie was lost (Or simply never recorded. A debunked rumor was that it was lost in Lake Tahoe), there were arguments between Allan Silliphant and Vic Savage over the direction of the film, and Savage himself being sued for fraud before the film's release!
  • What an Idiot: In an attempt to stop the transmission of humanity's biological data, Martin rushes into the UFO, loaded gun in hand—then tries to ''pistol-whip'' the computer. Needless to say, this doesn't work.
    Mike: Hey, there's bullets in the other end of that thing!
