Need help finding the title of 2 older movies.

I remember watching 3 movies growing up, that as a child I thought were neat but would like to see them again. Both were horror/scary films. I was kinda hoping I could jog someone's memory here and they could help me remember the titles so I could try and find them. Thanks!

Film one... older movie, remember seeing it on tv in the seventies. I think possibly it was an english horror film. I remember it being in black and white. The setting was the country side and these monsters where killing and eating - starting with animals then working their way up to humans - by covering up the victim and disolving all the flesh and internal bits and leaving just a pile of soggy (half digested) bones that kinda looked like really big spaghetti piles.... ring a bell with anyone?

Film two... it was a zombie or demon movie, cant remember which, but lots of killings and eating of victims. Started off with a plane landing and zombie/demons rushing off it and infecting a continent... ended with a person waking up from it all being a dream with it starting again in real life (plane coming in for a landing). I remember a television station being over run while in the middle of filming a talk show or something and being attacked on camera...

Film three... this was a monster movie, in color. I keep thinking the title is Boob tube or something to do with a tv. Some family (2 parents, 2 kids i think) accidentally pick up a transmission from space on their satellite dish and this ~thing~ is transported into the house. The best way I can describe it is in D&D terms , a gibbering mouther... a huge odd shaped fleshy thing with a huge or many mouths that's ravenous.... the kids in the movie kinda are the only ones who realize it's there while this thing chows down on some of the parents friends who are throwing a party at the time.... at the end, it turns out to be a pet of some alien (like a puppy) and they come down to get him back... (kinda comedy horror)... anyone anyone?


thanks for the help in advance!

Dave
