I must confess, I haven’t actually seen the movie that this beastie hails from. Most of the monsters that I will be “reimagining” are from films that I saw on local television back when I was a kid. Most of these movies were only watched once and, except for a few key scenes, are just fuzzy memories. Memories that are fuzzy enough that I’ve had to hunt down visual reference to remember exactly what the monsters looked like.
One of these days I’ll have to watch It and see if doing so inspires a different interpretation of the creature.
