Bug-Eyed Monster or BEM is a fannish term for an early science fiction trope wherein aliens tended to be "grotesque creatures with huge, oversized or compound eyes and a lust for women, blood and/or general destruction."
Professional science fiction illustrators drew plenty of BEMs for sf magazines, and BEMs were also popular in sf films. Modern media fan artists tend to be more interested in portraits of their BSOs than in imagining the grotesque, but there are always exceptions.
