How to Make a Monster!

GR: Did you have other ideas for ways to infect? How would the jellyfish do it?

BW: Well the jellyfish was back when we were thinking of a way we could get it [the Infector] to any corpse, no matter what corner it was crammed into, was to get it to float. I really didn’t like the idea of a floating enemy. How did it float? Like psychic energy or something?

Well, anyway, I have this one version that looked like jellyfish lit from inside that would latch onto your face. Facehuggers do the same thing, so that didn’t feel quite right. Just having it float around and glow, instantly made it not scary anymore.

The kite looking shape came out of pretty much the human body that I had originally based it on. It doesn’t even look very human, but I basically just played around with limbs and did a version without arms and with the legs bent backwards. Then by pulling out the skin, on what would have been on the human’s chest, and spreading it outwards and attaching it to the legs, that’s what created the weird tri-pod thing. Then we figured out a way to make the feet look like it had really elongated toes, and that’s what it gets around on.
