"Roger, I can tell you're about to do it again."
"Do what again, Anthony?"
"Deliver another low budget masterpiece! This is going to be your scariest movie since Revenge of the Blood Sucking Zombies from Cleveland!"
"Thanks! Y'know, that one did win Monster Picture of the Year 1955."
"Not to mention Attack of the Fifty Foot Woman with Large Breasts and 50 Million Miles to Earth and Up Your Shorts!"
"Yes, guess I've always known how to scare audiences on the cheap."
"And this new picture has the scariest low-budget monster of all!"
"What do you mean? What monster?"
"The cheesy one right above us."
"But I haven't designed the monster yet for ....."
There's nothing like a 1950's monster picture when you're up in the middle of the night with a bowl of vanilla fudge ice cream until you realize you are old enough to have seen the movie when it opened in theaters and that you shouldn't be eating vanilla fudge ice cream in the middle of the night because now you're going to have reflux until dawn!
Otherwise there's nothing like a 1950's monster picture, especially when it's the subject of your contribution to the Friday Fictioneers based on the picture prompt above. It's almost scary how many other interpretations there are of the prompt by the other Fictioneers, and may you be chased by the Blood Sucking Zombies from Cleveland if you don't click here to check them out!
And what of the scariest low-budget monster of all? It's right above you!
Knew I shouldn't have tried that one again.
