'Deep Blue Sea' Moments: H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds (2005)

Hold your collective gasps, people- this segment is back!  It's been a while, I know.

Our hero (C. Thomas Howell) and a priest are hiding out from the aliens.  While the latter is talking, a tentacle-like thing swoops near him.  Thankfully, Howell is quick to stab the thing with some sort of toxin he has made.  The thing makes a weird noise and retreats.

The sudden facing down of death and being saved makes the priest regain his lost faith.  He makes a speech about how there is hope for life and that life will continue...
Naturally, this prompts the alien thing to pop back in, spit some goo on the man and cause his face to melt!  Should have seen that one coming, buddy!
So maybe don't go talking about how life is great until you've made sure that the creature is gone.

See you next time I find one of these.  Ciao.
