Smithee Award Winner! Stupidest-Looking Monster

This Looks Like a Job for Stanley Steemer!
Lovingly referred to by Bad Movie aficionados as "The Carpet-Monster Movie," The Creeping Terror has already enjoyed a long and well-deserved cult following. How to describe the monster? Well, it is, in fact, quite a bit like a cross between a pantomime horse and a carpet draped over two guys, with the resemblance leaning toward the carpet draped over two guys. Somehow, it eats people (counting on the sheer stupidity of its victims, I suppose) by luring them into its maw, a one-foot hole located near the bottom. It then invariably spits out their shoes, perhaps refusing to eat the leather out of respect for the cow costume that went into its construction.
