Joe Bob's Find That Flick
This week's medulla-mangler comes from...Christopher Martin of St. Clair Shores, Mich.:
"Though I pride myself on my knowledge of schlock sci-fi films, there is one flick that has haunted me since the tender age of 9. During a family trip to the East Coast, we stopped at a hotel in New York state. While flipping the dial on the room TV, I caught a glimpse of two vaguely British actors talking about something called 'blood rust.' The implication was that this 'rust,' like the Blob, had an appetite for humans. Before I could learn more, my parents yanked me away from the TV and tossed me in the car. Despite my protests, we resumed our trip. (I always meant to go back to that hotel and switch the set off.) To this day, that film has remained a mystery to me. Does it have a scream queen? Does the 'blood rust' ever get around to eating someone? (I'm not fussy; I'll settle for an arm or a leg.) If your readers could supply the title and some details, I could finally close the door on one of those minor traumas that made my childhood a living hell."
A video will be awarded to the correct answer. (The winner chooses from a list of about a thousand titles.) In the event of a tie, a drawing will be held.
