My God, What Is It by jbwarner86 My God, What Is It by jbwarner86
Why, it's number 22 in my countdown of my top 25 MST3K episodes, of course! It's the only movie to star a monster made up almost entirely of carpet samples - 606 "The Creeping Terror"...

Synopsis, from the MST3K Amazing Colossal Episode Guide:
"Vic Savage and Shannon O'Neill are young newlyweds terrorized by a huge caterpillarlike monster who lands on earth in a spaceship. The monster creeps and terrorizes, ingesting whole humans (who help him out by crawling into his mouth/hole/opening/thing/deal). In the backfilled epilogue, the creeping terror - who looks like a bad Chinese dragon - is declared "a creature from beyond our solar system", a highly specialized test animal sent to Earth to eat humans and record their data in its internal computer. A grenade finally destroys one of the creeping terrors, but another one has been loosed, and Sheriff Vic Savage runs his car into the other. Most of the dialogue has been replaced by narration which goes off on odd tangents."

"Well he's not shy." I love this episode so much because they can't even keep in riff mode. Several times they just break out in laughter.

This should have been Dr. Forrester used to take over the world. It SUCKED so bad I can't even describe it.

I just got into MST3K and this was one of the best episodes of them I've seen. So many great lines I can't even start.

"Hey, if you could help me out by climbin' in..."
"Are we inside Television City?"
"There is just plain no need for sex!"

There's three to get you started :D

"Apparently they hadn't invented running away yet"

This was my first MST3k movie. No lying. I'd ask why you didn't illustrate the main characters, but they really don't do anything.

I thought it looks like a giant carpet myself, haha! I love these drawings, I love the way you do the character's expressions ^^;

You do such an awesome job on these. I'm gonna probably end up faving all of them.
AshleyPomeroy Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2011
If I remember it right, the victims were always eaten head-first, because the director had a bizarre fetish for filming women's legs (as they are eaten). Also, "swim! let the current take you away!". Bhabby! etc.

Believe it or not,I just got done watching the straight(non-MST3K) version of this movie 3 times in the past week!It's so mesmerizingly awful I don't even know where to start.Even though it was made in 1964 it almost seemed like a 1920's silent film,like it was made for hillbillies who were so impressed just to see a moving picture that they would be enthralled by anything! Thank you for this tribute.

Y'think maybe you could help me eat you by just climbing in my mouth?

The narration in this movie makes you wonder how bad it would have been with dialogue.

Great pic!! Waugh! :noes: Here come the Creeping Terror! Should we run or something??

"Yeah, if you could just help me by crawling into my mouth, that'd be great."

My God, this movie was one of the worst they every showed. I mean it's up there with Hobgoblins and Monster a Go-Go as one of the all-out suckiest. Brilliant artwork; you do a great job capturing scenes from crappy movies.
Ashkihyena Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2008
I still think Manos: The Hands of Fate takes the cake as worst movie ever, but this one does come pretty damn close.

Creeping terror is one of my favourite episodes.

I can't listen to that quote without cracking up. The Creeping Terror is an excellent pick for the top 25.

"Hey quit it with the subplots, I'm trying to eat you guys!"

I remember Tom Servo's line, "I think this might be a weird little turn-on for the director.

Seeing the voraphiles on deviantart, he created a real terror. The Creeping Terror was the alpha of vore, making me wanna kill the director more than ever.

Actually, I heard the film tanked so bad, the director had to run from loan collectors. Har har!
TheEliCash Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2010  Hobbyist Artist
If Tom said that, then he must be psycic! I mean wtf is the problem with vorephiles? Me:Dude, your girlfriend just got eaten by a snake!
Dude:I know, isn't it hot?
Me: :wtf:

Heck, a good car was enough to destroy the monster. Run over em!
TheEliCash Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2010  Hobbyist Artist
How 'bout something that could last longer? Let's say the strongest possible tank, maybe?
TheKoboldNecromancer Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2010  Student Writer
You know, those monsters were just people under carpet. A good kick would be enough. Heck, the only reason people were eaten was because they sat there and CLIMBED into his mouth!
TheEliCash Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2010  Hobbyist Artist
Yeah I know; movies were fricken' retarded back then. Heck, there's still some b movies that have the same "dumb chick lets herself get eaten" tactic. There's this one movie where one blonde chick pretty much ran into a (giant worm?) monster and got swallowed.

Me: Dumbass! Watch where you're... too late.

It likes like a mutated Pokemon or something. I have yet to see this one, and kudos to the Pete Townshend references (I'm a massive Who fan).

They're being attacked by a giant carpet!
Grizzled-Ink Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2008
A surprisingly stealthy 12 foot long carpet monster. If only people knew how to run back then, and didn't climb into the monsters mouth.

Oh man, I saw part of that episode, but unfortunately I never got to finish it... I plan to finish it one day, though...

I LOVE this episode, and I love MST3K! THANKS!!
shinragod Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2007
Oh the horror...the world's slowest,slowest, and SLOWEST monster on Earth devouring people willingly climbing into it's maw. XD What really cracked me up in this movie really was it virtually had NO dialogue, and the main character was the narrator. Also the 'roller rink' organ music added to the hilarity. a painful but wonderfully funny movie to watch. XD
fixman88 Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2007
I remember how weird the end of this movie was. It was like the Director couldn't decide how to end it so he made up something at the last second.
FractiousLemon Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2007
I knew which movie this would be solely by the title. "My God! What is it?" One of the most wonderfully uninspired, stilted deliveries in any old film.
JuniperIsis Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2007
The completely blase "My God! What is it?" is my favorite stinger.

I remember this episode being so bad it was almost unwatchable. It's like someone decided to craft monster out of old area rugs. It was like the people were so bored with the inherent 1950's blandness of the movie that they WANTED to be eaten by the monster.
