View Full Version : Vague movie memory...

Hi, I remember seeing a movie while I was a child, and I've always wondered what it was.

It is about a strage ape creature from a crate that was killing people. The ape was exotic looking and white in colour, as far as I remember. I think it was loose in some sort of high rise building, but I could be wrong.

Also, there is another movie from my childhood.

The scene I remember was a naked woman running away by some trees in a field, she was rather busty. I think the movie was a redneck horror movie, although it is hard to remember. It was likely from the early 80s. Could it be any more vague? I don't know, but my memory of it is vivid!

This is my first post, so I'd like to say hello, these forums are awesome and I am always busy watching great bad films!

That one sounds like "The Crate" segment from Creepshow. The crate was situated under the stairs of a building at one point I believe.

Good, it's easy to find, get that AND Creepshow 2! I would personally avoid Creepshow 3 like the plague.

Dustin said "It looks like a Nickelodeon Production", I'd say, that's not too far off...Reminded me of 'The Willies'...Maybe they should have just called it 'The Creepies' or something, and avoided trying to tie it in with the Creepshow movies

There were a couple of good parts marred by poor stories/writing, bad acting, and a childish production (as Dustin said a Nick production but it reminded me of Goosebumps episodes). When I say a couple, I honestly mean two at the most. There wasn't really a lot to redeem this film except MAYBE the gore in the hackneyed story about the mail order bride.

"Just tell it to call ya Billy!"

great sequence, and I honestly think Creepshow is extremely underrated, with "the Crate" being my favorite chapter.

I think the beast is supposed to be a Yeti, even though it's never overtly stated. on the crate itself it mentions that it is from some Arctic expedition from something like a hundred years ago. so an immortal yeti is what Billy and Hal Holbrook are apparently dealing with.
