With the giant monsters vs. mechs movie Pacific Rim on the horizon, now’s a good time for Hasbro to bring back The Evil That Lies Within…
In the style of other Hasbro lines G.I. Joe and Transformers, Inhumanoids was both an animated series and toy line that debuted in 1986. The show was also produced by Sunbow/Marvel and animated by Japan’s Toei Animation. A group of human scientists known as Earth Corps are formed to battle three subterranean monsters, collectively known as the Inhumanoids, who suddenly appear.
The Inhumanoids consisted of three main monsters:
Metlar who resides in the Earth’s core and is able to spit balls of flaming lava.
D’Compose is an undead dinosaur that can corrupt flesh and create zombie-fied monsters out of humans. He has a rib cage in his chest that swings open to trap humans and yells out his name… a lot!
Tendril was my favorite of the monsters– a walking mass of seaweed laden with vine-like tentacles who can regenerate limbs when they are cut, similar to a Hydra. Read the rest of this entry

Sir Michael Caine
The name is synonymous with acting. At age 79, with nearly six decades of acting experience and over one hundred films to his credit, Caine is world-renowned as one of the greats in the game. Over the summer, you’ve seen him reprise his role as Alfred Pennyworth, butler and confidante to Bruce Wayne in the final part of the Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy “The Dark Knight Rises” (shout-out to “Michael Caine tears“). However, what you may not know is that my introduction to Sir Michael Caine was at the impressionable age of ten years old, and it gave me nightmares!!!
In 1981, Caine starred in a suspenseful horror movie titled “The Hand“. Based on a novel called “The Lizard’s Tail”, this film directed by Oliver Stone expanded on a phenomenon witnessed right when the picture starts– why does a detached lizard’s tail continue to twitch? Now we ALL know the scientific reason for that (pipe down, armchair herpetologists!), but for young Classick, watching this movie on VHS (up until then, the only tapes I’ve seen on the then new VCR were “The Making of Michael Jackson’s Thriller” and the first “Police Academy” movie) found me immediately stunned!
