Thanks to Ulf for recalling this satiric sci-fi gem. The alien-possessed
human also appropriates a boom box and accompanies his "shopping" spree
with really loud rock & roll.
Here's an oldie: in THE BIG SLEEP, to track down a lead, detective Philip
Marlowe (Bogart) affects a lisp and goes shopping for dirty books in what
passes for a swanky bookstore.
