Gremlins

Many returning Air Servicemen swear they saw creatures tinkering with their equipment. One crewman swore he saw one before an engine malfunction that caused his B-25 Mitchell bomber to rapidly lose altitude, forcing the aircraft to return to base.

We caught the tail end of the Twilight Zone movie last night. Lithgow was absolutely amazing in this role (as was Shatner in the original version).

I'll never forget Lithgow as the High Commander on "Third Rock from the Sun". Best 1990's sit-com EVER!

There was a joke about this on Third Rock when Shatner's character first appeared. He made some comment about thinking he'd seen something on the wing of his craft on the way to earth, with Lithgow then commenting "that same exact thing happened to me!". Really funny stuff.

I always really dug the monster design from the Lithgow version. It just LOOKED evil!
