19. Get drunk.
What are we up against?
A race of furry little man-eaters that are nothing, we repeat nothing, like the Gremlins despite their similar appearance and coincidental release date.
What have we learnt?
To believe crazy old drunks. No one listened to town drunk Charlie McFadden when he said he was getting messages from outer space; but they sure took notice when he saved the day when these fluffy little critters came to town.
How do we get rid of them?
Simple but effective, Molotov cocktails are effective at ridding your local town of its flesh eating alien population - and as an added bonus they're sure to capture the attention of any easily impressed alien bounty hunters who happen to be passing by.
