Bug


In case you hadn't recognized him (or if you were born in the late 90s), 
this is Edgar the Bug from the classic SF comedy Men in Black.

This giant insect from space squeezed up inside a less than elegant Edgar suit was probably the best idea for an alien movie since the Xenomorphs from the Alien franchise. That thing was threatening, intelligent, violent, lethal, repulsive and terribly visually disturbing, the perfect combination between a zombie, an alien and a giant bug.
Screw The InvadersThe Puppet Masters and all that mambo-jambo: This is the kind of alien I was afraid to find living among us while growing up.
