This scene has bugged me for years:

  • It's night time IIRC
  • Guy is outside, leaning against a car, probably a parking lot
  • He eats something, most likely a burger/sandwich
  • Feels something strange, reaches his hand for his belly
  • His hand is wet with blood or green goo IIRC
  • Creature comes out and flies away
  • He watches as it flies away
  • IIRC there's no panic, he doesn't freak out
  • Most likely an American production
  • Watched on TV, in the 90's, could be older though

This is probably my memory playing tricks on me, but the movie may end with a old man and a boy watching a movie in an old cinema or something.

I posted this same question years ago on a website focused on horror movie and it got 1 comment saying they were looking for the same scene. But the website is long gone (archive https://web.archive.org/web/20120803214930/best-horror-movies.com/little-monster-comes-out-of-guys-tummy-and-flies-away.html)

  • I wonder if this is from Fringe... Do you happen to remember if it was a movie, TV show, or mini-series? Apr 16 '18 at 19:50

    Most likely a movie, but expanding the scope, I considered the possibility of being part of an anthology like Creepshow or tv series like "Are you afraid of the dark?" I'm currently looking through a list of movies by year, starting from the 1980, so far nothing.

Lobster man From Mars (1989)

Around the 26 minutes mark this scene comes up. It's not exactly outdoors. It happens inside a garage while the doors are open. The guy, a small town mechanic, is leaning against the garage's work table when he eats the hamburger.

Regarding the old man and boy watching the movie, the IMDB movie summary says:

Young film student tries to sell his weird movie to a desperate film producer who is in need of a tax write-off. The producer screens the film "Lobster Man From Mars". What follows is one of the most bizarre and funny film within-a-film sendups: Mars suffers from an air leakage, and send the dreaded Lobster Man to Earth to steal its air. The plot is foiled by a mad scientist, a girl, and an army colonel. The producer buys the movie, but it makes a huge profit and the producer is sent to jail, with the film student taking his place as the studio hot shot
