Movie of the Month - Annihilation (June 2018)

...

In Wolfe's books you have the Alzabo, a extra-terrestrial monster of roughly bear/big cat size and shape that absorbs the personalities of the people it consumes for awhile. It will track down a victims family for example and speak to them with the family members voice/memories to try and lure them to it...
You know who did that idea first, Roger Corman in Attack of the Crab Monsters (1957). Giant predatory crabs can talk to people by telepathy, then consume them and absorb their personalities, into the crab. It's a B movie, but the concept was really cool. As soon as I seen the bear creature in Annihilation I thought of Attack of the Crab Monsters.
