There’s this really terrible movie and I loved it.

There were these evil praying mantis aliens that attacked Earth. And one at the military place bit off a guy’s head. And you see a tube with blood squirting out. And people are hiding behind a fence, watching, but the camera doesn’t hide it well enough that there’s not enough fence so it’s just one panel.

It’s in color, so it’s not the 50s movie I looked up. It played on the old Sci-Fi channel that played really bad B movies. And I’ve always wanted to watch it again.

  • The Deadly Mantis (1957) is what springs to mind; youtube.com/watch?v=uSJgoaDJ1cA – Valorum May 26 '19 at 11:09

"Alien Apocalypse" (2005 TV movie)

It sounds similar to this movie that was shown on the old Sci-Fi channel and had aliens that looked like praying mantises. The scene with an alien biting off the head of a human occurs at about 1:42 of the trailer/clip video from YouTube posted below.

  • @Valorum. And yet the op said it was a 'really terrible movie' so this must not be it. – the guest May 27 '19 at 15:00
