Prophecy: The Monster Movie
Nomination Year: 1994
SYNOPSIS: According to Native American legend, Nature will find a way to avenge itself against those who abuse her. Sure enough, in response to some toxic waste dumping in the wildnerness, "Nature" devises its revenge in the form of a humungous, mutant, killer bear.
- "Alas, Poor Yorick"
We have an idyllic nighttime scene: a family of happy campers, cozily asleep near a dying campfire. But here comes the big bear! Chaos ensues, and the little boy can't get out of his sleeping bag. His face is the only thing sticking out, he ends up just hopping up and down in a panic. That's comical enough, but suddenly a massive paw slams him -- BAM! The kid goes flying end-over-end for about forty yards into a huge boulder...and explodes into feathers. Bear 3, Audience 0.
- Stupidest-Looking Monster
Beware the Gummi Bear!
Once aptly described by gossip columnist Rona Barret as "a cross between a bear and a half-melted hot fudge sundae," this hulking beast-on-a-camera-dolly looks like the Mother of All Gummi Bears, except that it eats you instead of the other way around.
