As a SyFy channel addict who loves watching those cheesy movies, I WAS watching that movie and I had EXACTLY the same thought! Instead of, "...please... please, nooo....!" it would be more like, "Click. Boom. Thunk."
Hey, it may work on mutant canibals, but what about "Ice Spiders", "Super Gator", or the "Bone Eater?" Didn't think of those, huh?
