Thinking Outside the "Plot"!
________________________________

~ A Question for the Members: Wow, the premise of this movie is ripe for sequels! What will the world do when they find out that a remote region in Mexico is both rich in uranium and also causes animals and people to grow to gigantic size? Shocked

~ My Theory: Getting that uranium out is a no-brainer, naturally! Cool

But wait a minute! What special property of this region causes animals to grow larger . . . instead of being killed by the radiation? Shocked

The only apparent "mutation" caused by the radiation is the rapid growth rate — with no cancer-like maladies of the type that radiation usually causes!

As far as we know, Gloria Talbot's husband suffered his terrible facial injuries because of some accident which occurred after he arrived in the region. But instead of dying from these terrible injuries (and the inevitable infection), his damaged flesh healed over and he survived — without medical attention of any kind! Shocked

Gentlemen, I submit that this strange region might possess the ability to heal traumatic illness in human beings, as well as causing animals to mature at a faster rate than normal — thus providing a method for farmers to deliver mature cattle, pigs, and chickens to market in less time!

What can you add to this thread that might be fun to discuss?
