Unless you're a zombie or some carnivorous monstrosity that feeds on Hypothalamus glands. If you know anything about evolutionary biology, you know why Dr. Green's (Penelope Ann Miller) initial idea to kill the creature in The Relic would have worked. Of course, we're assuming you don't.
Put your knowledge of all-things that creep, slither and crawl to the test with the only movie monster survival guide/quiz book of its kind.

What will you do when they come for you?
Live and learn. Learn and live!

20 Million Miles To Earth
(1) The Ymir had no heart or lungs, just a network of small tubes that ran throughout its entire body. The creature also had a respiratory system that could filter out poisonous vapors. (2) The Commissioner of Police (Tito Vuolo) asked Verrico to speak slowly so he could write it all down.
(3) Luck or fate, if you believe in such a thing. The canister the creature was contained in washed up on the shore after the crash. (4) Minerals that could vastly benefit our civilization

(5) Both (6) Lots of raw sulfur (7) No, it wasn't. (8) Their patience (9) The electricity that was used to keep the creature sedated was turned off when the power went out. Give yourself a couple of bonus points if you remember how that happened (a machine that was being hoisted accidentally hit a generator in Dr. Uhl's lab). (10) Part of the Roman coliseum was destroyed.

It couldn't make a psychic connection unless it physically touched someone.

It knows what we're thinking. Do you? It's the answer to a question we haven't asked yet - to confuse it and you. How was the creature in this film able to read the thoughts of some, but not others?
Two monsters enter the pit, only one survives. Place your bets. How far a Ymir or any other creature could go in just such a tournament would naturally depend upon which creatures it faced and the wounds it suffered in each round. If you forgot what made this one,
one tough son-of-a-you-know-what, your next assignment will be to dissect it.

2. We don't expect you to remember everything that happened in this film, just the important stuff so you'll know what to do if and when another Ymir ever comes to earth looking for one of it's own. When Verrico (George Khoury) recalled what happened the day of the crash, he spoke slowly. Why?

3. If no one pulled the creature out of the ship before it sank into the Mediterranean Sea and it didn't escape on its own, how did it end up in the village of Gerra?

4. The task of finding the creature wasn't to kill it, but to study it and to find out how it could survive and flourish in such a hellish environment. Not until that secret was learned could another expedition return to Venus. For what, we ask? What did the crew of the XY-21 hope to find 20 million miles from earth?

5. When Marisa (Joan Taylor) asked the Colonel (William Hopper) about the specimen that was brought to earth and the disease that killed the XY-21's Chief Scientist (Arthur Space) and eight others, he replied, "I
can't (answer those questions)." Was that because he couldn't or wouldn't?

6. If we knew where we could buy a monster of our own, to keep as a pet, we probably wouldn't be at liberty to say here. What we can tell you is that you'll end up spending a fortune to feed a Ymir if that's what you want in your home. What did the creature's basic diet consist of?

7. Anyone who has ever had a toothache knows how excruciating the pain can be. The reason why that hasn't caused more (or any) monsters to run amok is because of the work of Herbie Frockenstein, M.D.E. Monster Dentist Extraordinaire. That is until one bit off his right hand. Now he just spends his days lecturing those who want to follow in his footsteps on the dangers of teeth and tongues alike. Was the Ymir's forked like its tail?

8. Somebody pinch us with a Ymir claw. The government informing anyone about the existence of an escaped alien life-form only happens in dreams. In this film, the press was even thanked, for what?

9. Restraints are usually a crapshoot when dealing with monsters and creatures
from other worlds. Even those that do work eventually fail for one reason or another, usually because someone underestimates the creature's strength. If that didn't happen in this film, how did the Ymir escape from the Giardino Zoo?

10. Why is it always so costly for man to move from the present to the future, and to kill a monster that just wants to be left alone? The first part of that question was asked in the film's closing sequence. They were also the last words spoken in the film. At what cost was the creature vanquished?
