i saw this movie one night long, long ago at 3am on the sci-fi channel..

i can't recall the exact plot - but it is about a laboratory on an island, scientists have been performing genetic / radioactivity experiments and they inadvertently create strange slug-like creatures that move really slowly, are about the size of a dog and seem to be played by RC cars in rubber suits. they have an appendage that sucks blood, and they escape in the beginning of the movie, slowly cornering people who aren't walking fast enough and apparently sucking their blood.

i just recall a breathless scientist telling some woman "they suck blood through your pores!!!!' and i remember being half-creeped out, half-dying of laughter the whole time.

help? please? i need to find this somewhere.

Glad you did, and that's a fun film.  I keep hoping they will release it on DVD.

Interesting thing about the monsters, which are called Silicates in the film:  they are not sucking out the blood, but rather the bones.  That is why the bodies are left as limp husks.
