Cloverfield is coming up and so anybody wants to guess how the monster will look like? So what do we know about the monster actually? Here are the facts *spoilers*:
It has a tail
The production note described a scene where the monster destroys a bridge with its tail.
There are little creatures as well
As part of a “post-birth ritual,” as Abrams describes it, the monster is seen early on scratching his back on a building (destroying it in the process), to remove a layer of parasites that are set loose to wreak their own havoc on the city.
And because of that, the idea of the parasites was born. “They’re these horrifying, dog-sized creatures that just scatter around the city and add to the nightmare of the evening,” Abrams says.
“The parasites have a voracious, rabid, bounding nature, but they also have a crab-like crawl,” Reeves explains. “They have the viciousness of a dog, but with the ability to climb walls and stick to things.”
Early reviews described them to be a cross between the face huggers of Alien and those bugs from Starship Troopers.
Comes from the sea
The concept for the monster (affectionately known simply as “Clover” in-house) is simple, says Abrams. “He’s a baby. He’s brand-new. He’s confused, disoriented and irritable. And he’s been down there in the water for thousands and thousands of years.”
So any idea? Just for the heck of it here’s some candidates (one of them might be the real one but I highly doubt it):
I guess we’ll just have to watch the movie to find out.
