I know I am late to this party but a few things I noticed that I did not see mentioned. First, worst representation of a comet in a sci-fi movie. Even in 1985 there must have been tens of thousands of stock photos of actual comets to work from. They went with a solid neon green smudge.

Second, Lots of sweating. Guys were sweating in almost every scene. But who could blame them with hot space girl walking around?

Lastly on the naked female dehydrated corpse - the film's puppet makers made sure the carpet matched the drapes. I guess 25 million will get you that kind of attention to detail.

One more thing that made me laugh. When Carlson was descibing a patiient to the Patrick Stewart he starts with, Older gentleman, grey hair, large man, then adds, with a mole on his face. Later when we see the patient the mole covers more than half his face. Maybe lead with that?

That should be a new segment on the mini episode, "would this have worked better as an adult film?"

Some of the films are pure nightmare factories anyway, so I don't want to have to imagine what an adult film version of "Goobie" would be. Now YOU'RE thinking of that too. You're welcome!

The San Francisco based porn company Kink.com, kinda already did that with a scene where a girl dreams of having a gangbang with a bunch of guys in panda outfits, acting like pandas. And there is a whole site dedicated to girls banging people in panda outfits. So I guess the lesson to remember is that for the internet, always Rule 34.

Come on, if there's one thing we know about pandas, it's that they DON'T want to fuck. There are so very few left of them, and apparently they're all ugly.

To be fair they might not want to fuck other pandas, not chesty ladies.

Just recently saw this for the first time in 20 years.

Wow I forgot just how much of a DRAG the 2nd act was. 1st act has naked Mathilda May and crazy energy ghouls. 3rd act has tons of crazy energy ghouls and naked Mathilda May again.

The 2nd act has neither. Worse, it's all just exposition dumps by the 2 scientists talking to the astronaut. All the information they dump in the dull 2nd act was mostly stuff we already knew from the space ship scenes, and the ones that weren't could have easily taken place on the space ship's return flight which would have been way more interesting than 3 guys chatting on a helicopter and a hospital office.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre is still a brilliant movie. The use of sound in it is incredible. It's a constant attack on your brain. It wears you down. By the time you get to the business end of the movie you're shoulders are in your ears you're so tense. It heightens the madness of what's on screen so much that you're almost begging for it to end. And when it's over you're exhausted. Not many directors achieved that but Tobe Hooper did it on his 3rd movie when he was 31!!!
