I’ve never seen a character introduced by way of his psychotic laughter, which absolutely sets the tone. This strange character appears to aimlessly wander along the countryside in search of victims…ultimately stumbling upon, perhaps, not the most ideal.
It mimics to survive, is intelligent enough to build it’s own ship for travel…but that’s about all we know. Just how ancient is it? Where did it come from? What are it’s origins? (Cue TheThing ‘origins’ movie.)
Introduced during a poignant moment in the film (with dark music score to boot), some theorize this strange figure is the devil himself, waiting in the wings to make a sinister deal with Jess. Possible?
Unearthed from beneath the house of a slaughtered family, Jane is the quintessential ‘mysterious horror character’. Unable to communicate, it’s only Jane’s body which holds the sinister clues about her past, and of those that fought to stop her.
Werewolf special-makeup-effects are a 100+ year artform that kicked off with 1913′s The Werewolf. Which is why it really gets under my skin when i see werewolves that are rendered entirely in CGI these days (e.g. Underworld, Twilight, Howl, etc.) To me,it’s a sign of an incredibly lazy creature-effects department. I honestly hope the love and craft for creature design
returns for this genre.
