The Weirdest Ways To Kill A Movie Monster
Giant rampaging beastie? Try some air-freshener

submit to reddit

Movie monsters, eh? You can’t live with them – think of the fur in the plughole – and you can’t kill ‘em... at least not through conventional means. Just occasionally, however, a little lateral thinking can pay off in monster-smashing results. Not all of the killer critters are as vulnerable to alcohol as the hideous graboids in upcoming Irish horror flick Grabbers, but if you look closely enough, you’ll find some equally weird Achilles heels. As long as they don’t eat your face first...

Monster: The Golgothan
Movie
: Dogma (1999)

Summoned from the bowels of hell – the actual bowels of hell, not the metaphorical ones – Golgothan is a satanic toilet terror that even Trainspotting’s Renton wouldn’t mess with. Fortunately Silent Bob, an ingenious soul lurking behind an inscrutable stoner façade, is on hand to dispatch it with a dose of pocket air freshener in Kevin Smith’s comedy satire. We’d always put Bob down as a pot rather than a potpourri man, but there you are. We never had God down as Alanis Morissette, either, so what do we know?

I've always liked how the xenomorph meets its maker in Alien 3 (no spoiler in case you haven't seen it); much more satisfying than blown out of an airlock or shot. More
