The 14 Scariest Things To Come From Meteor Showers

Meteorites are terrifying on their own — but let's not forget they're often carrying dangerous cargo.

Posted on

14. Superman

DC Comics

As seen in DC comics. I know what you're thinking: Superman isn't scary. But think about all the destruction that follows him around. If you've got a superhero in your city, you've got supervillains, too.

13. Cybersuit

As seen in Star Kid. Believe me, you don't want that kind of responsibility. It's all fun and games until you have to battle a Brood Warrior from the insectoid race waging war against the suit's creators.

12. Zirkonians

20th Century Fox

As seen in Aliens in the Attic. These little guys are probably more annoying than dangerous, but you can never be too careful. One is voiced by the very intimidating J.K. Simmons!

11. 50-foot woman

As seen in Attack of the 50 Foot Woman. The meteor doesn't actually bring the giantess, but it does harbor the alien that turns this normal human into a creature that can crush, kill, destroy.


10. Venom's suit

Columbia Pictures

As seen in Marvel comics and Spider-Man 3. This extraterrestrial symbiote offers some fun powers, but it also makes the people it latches onto super emo. Who needs that.

9. Audrey II

Warner Bros.

As seen in Little Shop of Horrors. The plant starts off cute, but soon it wants blood. If you're not scared yet, remember that in the original ending, everyone dies. And then the plant colonizes Earth.

8. Goofy rapidly evolving organisms

DreamWorks Pictures

As seen in Evolution. They're silly, but they're still deadly and highly adaptive. You can fend them off if you're David Duchovny. But you're not David Duchovny, are you? I didn't think so.

7. Critters

New Line Cinema

As seen in Critters. Remember, size isn't everything. Critters may be small, but they have a lot of very sharp teeth. They're also fast and total pains in the ass — avoid at all costs.


6. Parasitic plants

Warner Bros.

As seen in Creepshow. Poor Jordy Verrill. He just wanted to make a little money from the meteorite in his backyard. Now he's more plant than human. Don't let it happen to you. Also, this shit spreads.

5. Kronos, Ravager of Planets

20th Century Fox

As seen in Kronos. This machine may not look like much, but it feeds off of energy. Which means when you eventually try to kill it with an atomic bomb, you'll only make it more powerful.

4. Parasitic worms

Universal Pictures

As seen in Slither. Gross, right? These creepy little worms will enter your body — we don't even need to talk about how — and turn you into a really unfortunate looking zombie creature.

3. Giant bugs from Klendathu

TriStar Pictures

As seen in Starship Troopers. War seemed like a fun lark until those goddamn aliens sent a bug bomb to Earth. They're huge and hard to kill. Would you like to know more?


2. The Blob

TriStar Pictures

As seen in The Blob. What's so scary about a blob? Everything. Everything is scary about a creature that keeps growing larger while enveloping innocent people and turning them into goo. In the remake, it's also pink, which is a deceptively cute color.

1. Clowns

As seen in Killer Klowns From Outer Space. Also known as the so-called horror comedy that scarred us more than any legitimate horror movie ever. They're clowns, and they're coming for you. Good luck getting any sleep tonight.
