I like your page, I found it by searching for Bunyip, I was really scared by it.
One thing that most scared and affected me was the movie “Jumanji“, which is actually a good movie and I liked it, but there is that scene where this gigantic plant grows and attacks people. I am still scared by it, so everytime I see that movie I start having nightmares about big human eating plants. That said, I still have problems looking at flesh eating plants or at unusually big plants, also afraid to touch them. When I am in the bathtub, I sometimes have got day nightmares, that out of the sink there might come a big plant and eat me…
That is still scaring me.
Find and watch “Voodoo Island” sometime. There’s a scene in there… (*shudder*) People over at IMDB remember it long after they’ve forgotten the rest of the crappy film.
“The Beastmaster”, yes the one with Marc Singer and Tanya Roberts, had these bat like creatures whose wings resembled a Venus Flytrap:
I LOVE the Beastmaster. Great film (and TV show).
