THEM vs. Us

One of those movies I saw as a kid on CPM Theater Sunday afternoon on KCRA 3 out of Sacramento-Stockton. Movies like this scared me when I was a kid...

...And this film ended up influencing my SPLICERS script (about the experiment to create the ultimate tunnel dog to go after Osama in the tunnels of Afghanistan... genetically spliced with a desert scorpion and just a hint of Afghan box spider! Then we decide to skip Osama and go to Iraq, and the danger things are in some "Enterprise Zone" lab in L.A. until a rolling blackout pops open their cages and they end up in the L.A. subway tunnels, eating passengers. So we have to send in a bad-ass Special Forces Team to find 'em and kill 'em.

Man, I really love this movie. I mean really love this movie. But that part at the end where the cop gets killed is the one thing about the film that bugs me. I mean maybe he could die, but his death was so awfully unfair to him. He should have died taking down as many of those things as he could, but he gets grabbed from behind and then they play the Wilhelm scream. His character deserved much better.
