I actually kind of want to see this updated, both in the sensibilities of the tribe, making it less horrendously racist, and in the effects and monster. Mo cap could do well to give it a good presence as a frightening monster, and you could use some of the stuff with the fact that it's a tree, like have it sink into the ground and come up in a different area.

That lady has the view of science than the mad scientist from the opening of Robot Chicken: "For shits and giggles!"
But of course they save her because she's white.

They kinda already did something like that.
I would have thought the trick was to pull the knife out.

Wow that costume is pretty stiff! *drum roll*

Also for a bunch of smart scientist, couldn't they used well I don't know fire to kill Tobunga?

He's stiff because his bark is worse than his bite.

Too primitive, They have to solve problems the AMERICAN way.
With Bullets!

This looks like something that I've seen but don't remember watching. I honestly have no idea what to think of it.

Watch in horror as the monster strikes!

Gasp in terror as our heroes battle splinters!

Not just regular splinters, but like, those ones that are kind of small and really hard to see, let along get a hold of with the tweezers...Where was I?

Oh yes, Horray for white people.

Whyn not combine the two? They're smart scientists, surely they can come up with fire bullets!

That monster put in a rather wooden performance.

A monster with a horrific method of murder: rolling his victims down shallow hillsides for a few meters!

THE HORROR.

Allow me to counter with a recent post about Pokémon:

Dickdatduck said:
From the pokedex entry of the new pokemon Phantump: "According to old tales, these Pokémon are stumps possessed by the spirits of children who died while lost in the forest."
Makes me wonder what "wood" happen if Tabonga met a Phantump...*gasp* What have I done?! I've made fanfic bait! Run!

Also, that movie is horribly dated and offensive and the monster looks far too embarrassing to be laughable. Still, thanks for showing us how far we've come, Bob.

Cinemassacre's Monster Madness on From Hell It Came:

http://cinemassacre.com/2010/10/05/from-hell-it-came/

From James Rolfe's description, and from what I saw of the movie and the monster in question, I think this movie might be hilarious, and worth watching just to see how stupid everything is.

-"Can't believe me bloode eyes, Sir!"

-"I shall keep my Webley handy. In case it labouriously shambles this way next."

-"Careful, ye nay wan a splinter, Sir!

How did this movie not make it on to the MST3K lineup.
Maybe It's just too painful.

While the 1950s were certainly a racist time, I actually kinda like the theme of westerners bringing science and modern medicine and having to fight ancient tribal religion and tradition along with semi-xenophobic distrust of outsiders. Especially since there are regions of the world where "traditional medicine" is as commonly used as actual medicine, to say nothing of homeopathy and faith healing back here in the west.

I did a quick google search to see if they did riff this one and while it was considered many times best brains turned it down. Someone should get in touch with ether cinematic titanic or rifftrax to do this one.

While the movie definitely had racist overtones, I find it funny that things have more or less flipped. If the movie was done today, all the villains would be white (and probably members of the military and/or businessmen), they would be there to infect the natives with poison for shits and giggles, and the heroes would be the natives using tribal medicine and whatnot to kill off the creature. And if a white or American character was a hero, they'd have to immediately side with the natives and go all Dances With Wolves within five minutes of being introduced.

Is this seriously meant to be scary? I can't imagine how this ever scared anyone outside of a jump scare from sudden movement, or the closest this tree thing can do.
