Question: Spoiler: It's revealed that the first smaller predator was coming to bring a weapon to the humans to fight back against the bigger Predators. If this was the case, then why was it killing people when it first crash landed? It came across a completely different situation going on with soldiers taking out other humans, and it starts killing them, giving Quinn a chance to fight back and steal it's stuff. But why was it killing people to start with if it was bringing us a weapon to help?
Question: During the Vietnamese child-rescue scene (in which Vic Morrow and two child actors were horrifically killed in real life), why on earth did they allow Vic Morrow and the children to perform their own stunt work in what was, without question, an incredibly chaotic and deadly-dangerous night-time shoot? With several large pyrotechnics exploding on all sides and helicopters hovering less than 20 feet over the actors' heads, it was a recipe for disaster. Why did the film makers consider it worth the risk to capture a few frames of Vic Morrow's blurry likeness in a wide, distant shot?
Question: I've been wanting to finally watch the TV series, but I've never understood one thing... I know the movie is technically not 100% canonical with the series, but I've heard they later tried to connect it with the series with a comic-book adaptation. So should I watch the movie before the series? Or should I just go ahead and watch the series on its own, and treat the movie as an entirely separate "thing"? Or can it be done either way?
Question: At one point in the film, Gale and Dewey make the observation that the killer is killing people in a duplication of Woodsboro, going so far as to choose victims with the same names. What happened to that plot point? It certainly doesn't explain the order or the selection of the rest of the victims in the movie. Yes, Randy's murder by Mrs. Loomis and its motive was obvious, but what about the others? Were the first 3 murders set up in a tantalizing pattern in order to lure in Gale, Dewey, and Co.? How did Mickey know they'd catch on to that pattern anyways? Why would he abandon it? Mickey's motive was more theatrical than personal, so one would think he'd stick to patterns, details, and general copycatting.SteveQ
Question: I remember a scene in the movie where a female crew member tell the captain that she always tried to get him to look at her, then she said something like, "look at me" and unzips her suit to reveal something like flesh eating bacteria. But I don't find it in the movie. Was that in a remake or in some other movie? There is a scene like that in a Star Trek episode, but that is not what I am referring to.
Question: Billy admits that he shot his wife and daughters to save them from a more horrible death at the hands of the vampires. Grieving, he says, "I tried to shoot myself, too, but the fucking gun jammed." But Billy is a deputy sheriff, and any competent law officer can resolve a jammed gun in a matter of seconds. Did Billy actually chicken-out of killing himself after murdering his family?Charles Austin Miller
Question: Early in the film, Rawhead Rex kills a farmer, but the farmer's pregnant wife gets Rex's attention and he goes toward the house. She runs upstairs to hide but the monster follows, cornering her in the bedroom. He reaches out to her, but then relents and spares her for some reason. The movie never really explains why. Can anyone explain why he let her live?dewinela
Question: Was miss Ganush alive when she first attacked Christine, or was that the first manifestation and torment of the Lamia? The attack and it's effects seem highly consistent with what happens to Christine later on, and the frail old lady is just too powerful and durable for someone who dies a day or two later.
