E.T.N.: The Extra Terrestrial Nastie (1967)
I stumbled on this last night and it made me chuckle.
Released in 1967, the film’s original title was “Night Fright”. In the early 80s (here in the UK) it was re-titled E.T.N.: The Extra Terrestrial Nastie for its VHS release, presumably to cash in on the success of E.T. the Extra Terrestrial (1982).
Talk about a blatant rip off!
If you fancy giving it a go the plot summery is as follows:
“A government space experiment into the effects of cosmic rays on animal life goes horribly wrong, creating a mutant monster that terrorizes a rural community.”
It has a 2.7 rating on IMDb.
I love that tagline! 👌
“What’s 12ft tall and eats people” 😂
