"It Slithers. It Slides. It Nibbles. It Gnaws."
That's the tag line for the 1982 camp classic Parasite, which was basically a bargain basement ripoff of Alien, and which featured the bizarre cast of Demi Moore, Cherie Currie, and Vivian Blaine.
But it's a great tag line.
Let's think of some other great lines that could sum up a movie (whether real or imaginary).
Before you do that, let me whet your kitsch quotient by telling you some other actual ones I found on a shelf somewhere by the highway:
*"The dogs of hell walk the earth--the devil strides beside...."
(A Killing Affair with Peter Weller and Kathy Baker)
*"A hearing impaired football player encounters prejudice."
(Choices with Demi Moore--yep, her again--and Victor French)
*"He bought a miracle of science...with his soul."
(Chiller with Paul Sorvino and Michael Beck)
