Happy Hallo-Meme!

Rick MacPherson (any relation to Dick?) tagged me with this meme about the worst science-themed horror movies over the weekend. I was too busy being warmed by the glow of victorious New England sports team to respond until now.

Now that the dust has settled, I'm happy to oblige.

I'm not sure that this counts as horror, but this one certainly is frightful

(update: for those of you who need to replenish some brain cells after watching that, go check out the real deal about fireflies over at the Other 95%)

Seriously now, I have to admit that I was never a fan of horror movies, even the cheesy silly ones, so I really can't pick out a favorite. I do however remember watching the Creature Double Feature on Channel 56 WLVI when I was little. So in honor of those really awful shows, I give you the the following clip:

I think Rick tagged everyone I would have tagged myself (my blogocircle is rather small), so I'm going to pass on passing on this meme.

"and no relation to dick, sorry"

That's good. He was an awful coach.

That was the scariest creationist movie I've been witness to. Seriously, it was wrong on so many levels. Fireflies don't flash because they are looking for mates when they are LARVAE. Hello! jesussuckedahorsechrist, many other false statements in general of course, but for real science on lightning bugs, I refer you and your ilk to my recent post on the evolution and costs of light production in fireflies.

You didn't actually watch the entire thing did you? Quickly, go wash your brain!
