This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

I'm thinking it was an evangalion movie.

You also need to tie your answer to how Heavy Metal inspired me to choose my movie...


Both are animated.

No, it is more specific. :)

Bigfoot runs around in a costume that's a joke
while drinking cans of a drink we call coke
animals run around all day
while the park rangers laugh awkwardly and play

This part should refer to "Pepsi", as it is produced by BigFoot Beverages.

I will say that the movie I'm thinking of does have a bigfoot who drinks cans of coca-cola. So maybe I should edit that, but I guess its coke on the shorthand and coca-cola in the long form. It's not horror.

Welp, the movie I was hinting at was "Cry Wilderness", a movie I'm only aware of because of MST3k.

Mine was "Alien" so Battlemaster discarded the right answer.

Freudian nightmare, as in a dark mirror ---> Alien has been described as a movie full of freudian fears and perversions (the Alien spying on Ripley at the end while she undresses), with everything surrounding him being a dark mirror of our reality (Organic vs. Technologic...)

Genders reversed, bones on the outside ---> it is a male astronaut that is "raped" and impregnated; the Alien has bones on the outside - another example of "dark mirror".

Parasites infect flesh and machines ---> Kane is infected by the chestburster; the Alien "infects" the Nostromo.

In the dim glow of lovecraftian stars. ---> "Alien" is considered one of the best lovecraftian stories ever made; the stars in its universe are distant and remote, whereas the bright and plentiful stars in "Star Wars" suggest a vibrant universe full of life.

 The connection with "Heavy Metal", however, was a bit trickier. It was with "B-17", the episode written by "Alien"'s writer Dan O'Bannon, and that be described, too, with my verses (check it if you are unsure). "Genders reversed" is the only tricky line for "B-17": at the end, in the planes' graveyard, you see Amelia Earhart's plane - with Amelia becoming famous for what was then a mostly male role.
