Reminds me of a science fiction movie I saw a kid, probably around 1960 called "The Blob"- the blob was like a gigantic slime mold that would crawl around, find a peson, crawl up his/her leg and devour that person. The theatres showing the film would install a vibrator under some of the seats- and every now and then, mostly when the blob found some tasty human, the vibrators would rock your seat. Pretty scary when you're just a kid.
