The Tentacles from Planet X are minor antagonists in the 2007 American horror film The Mist.
When David, Ollie, Norm, and Jim go to restart the backup generator outside, their attempt is foiled by gigantic tentacles belonging to an unseen beast that entered through the now-open cargo bay door.
The Tentacles from Planet X are large flesh tone tentacles with a row of spikes on either of their sides. Down the middle of the tentacle is a row of toothed suckers like those of a squid; the bites of these suckers appear to be corrosive.
