I've been looking for the name of a movie for over a year now, this is my last chance.

Here are the details which I remember:

  • I watched this movie a few times when I was younger, I'd say 80s to early 90s. Might be early 80s when the movie actually came out.
  • It had an alien/humanoid/moster that was always in a bed covered until towards middle/end. He looked normal from waste up its what was covered that was monster/alien.
  • There was a swimming pool with slight fog in the movie at some point - if I recall correctly.
  • It was slightly humorous but not a full-on comedy.
  • I remember this alien/humanoid thing that was always in the bed - was a big bed.
  • There may have been one scene where there were a few scantly clad women around the monster/alein thing. Someone walked into the room and the covers was moving about then the humanoid/alien/monster popped up, then the girls popped up besides him. Party scene??
  • The rest of the family was normal looking - if I recall correctly.
  • It was just the father who was like this.
  • The monster/alien might be the uncle or grandpa

What is the name of this movie?

I'm hoping that someone has seen this and remembers it so I can see it again.

    This fits the description almost perfectly; en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Empire_Strikes_Back

  • If it was a wheelchair instead of a bed it could be Charles Bands's "Head of the Family", (1996). imdb.com/title/tt0116503 Oct 14, 2014 at 23:07
  • Could you try to make the title a bit more descriptive and 'searchable'? It would really help the question's exposure.

  • I think Richard meant "Return of the Jedi", not TESB.

This is the 1986 film Terrorvision - I had been trying to find the title for forever, myself.


  • The movie is from 1986

  • The movie contains a monster that can imitate the heads of the people it eats. In one scene it imitates five different people poking their heads out from under the blanket of a single, large bed at a swinger's party. The blanket is undulating wildly through the whole scene, and there are two kids looking in through the door

  • There is a large, indoor swimming pool completely covered in smoke

  • The monster eats and imitates the heads of the father and the grandfather of the family


  • The bed scene is relatively brief, and it's the only time the monster is in a bed

  • The monster is seen completely many times before and after the bed scene

  • The monster is not even remotely humanoid

  • It's most definitely an over the top, full-on comedy

  • The monster eats the whole family
