Nice work getting the strangers to speak. Harder than it might seem, I think.
As threatened in my comments on Cat-eyes’ What can a leaf do for you? post (and which I somewhat high-jacked [sorry!]), I’ll post here a few results from some programs I wrote to perform ‘phase canonical mayhem’ on audio bits that happened to catch my fancy as potential fodder for my diabolical experiments…

The aim of the corporate state is not to feed, clothe or house the masses, but to shift all economic, social and political power and wealth into the hands of the tiny corporate elite.

The corporate elite achieves its aims of greater and greater profit by weakening and dismantling government agencies and taking over or destroying public institutions. Charter schools, mercenary armies, a for-profit health insurance industry and outsourcing every facet of government work, from clerical tasks to intelligence, feed the corporate beast at our expense. The decimation of labor unions, the twisting of education into mindless vocational training and the slashing of social services leave us ever more enslaved to the whims of corporations.

It creates a world that is defined exclusively by naked self-interest.

Blair Witch Project, Jacob’s Ladder, Nightmare On Elm Street, Event Horizon — all comedies compared to this Freakish Alien.
The last ten seconds are the most frightening of all. Good Lord.
