|Meteor crash, Spider-Man 3|
5. Threshold (2003)
...couldn't find a single screencap from the movie
4. Evolution (2001)
When a meteor crashes into the woods (natch), researchers crack it open to reveal a strange blue goo. Of course, the goo turns out to be alien microorganisms that multiply and become an entire ecosystem. This meteor was more like Noah's Ark.
3. Spider-Man 3 (2007)
In the comics, the Venom symbiote is given to Peter Parker during an extradimensional war. Maybe the complicated back story is why the movie just dropped the symbiote into the park in a meteor. The symbiote looked a little like videotape, a suitable symbol for this retro convention.
2. Slither (2006)
1. The Blob (1988, 1958)
The quintessential alien meteor is the one carrying the Blob. In the original, the meteor contains the titular alien blob. In the remake, the meteor actually turns out to be an Earth spacecraft containing a microbe mutated by radiation. Either way, it's nasty.
Which is the grossest meteor? Any other alien meteors you can think of?
