I vaguely recall a scary movie that I watched, as a kid, approx around 1970.

In the movie there were these giant (maybe 1 meter long) slug-like creatures, complete with a tentacle to better terrorize folks.

The only memorable scene is when two people were in a car and PLOP! one of the creatures landed on their windshield.

Any ideas what this movie could be?

  • I'm confused. Did you watch it around 1970 or 1960?

    Do you mean Island of Terror? There was a similar question on M&TV recently, and the movie does contain giant slugs with a tentacle (who at one point slide down a windshield).

Whilst it sounds like a classic, I don't remember windshield scene but your description of the creatures sounds familiar. Technically, they're brains and spines with added tentacles but I can see a kid in the 70's seeing them as slug-like.

The wonderful, brain sucking creatures from the 1958 classic "Fiend Without a Face"

A Brain Sucker is for Life, not just for Christmas

You've been hanging around the atomic plant again, haven't you!

I would have gone with jackets, pants and sturdy boots but I suppose you can fight brain sucking creatures in a towel.


Are you referring to The 1988's remake of The Blob?

I remembered there's a car scene where a couple gets eaten by a creature with tentacles in that movie. I always thought that movie is creepy.

  • Unlikely, as OP is asking about a movie he saw around 1970.

Island of Terror. 1966. Peter Cushing.

An isolated remote island community is threatened by an attack by tentacled silicates which liquefy and digest bone and tissue.


  • Can you provide any more information that show's similarity betwen these two works?
