Watched Annihilation recently. Was creeped out by that fucking bear-thing (as if the whole movie wasn't disturbing enough, fff. Seriously though, that bear scene was the stuff of nightmares) and felt inspired.
So have a mutated fox falcon snake hybrid (also watched The Revenant lately - boy, bears sure are some scary motherfuckers in the movies, aren't they) Coldmirrorbr by Culpeo-Fox

This piece is fantastically well done, I love how its set up with various creatures in one mitch-matched mess. It lets off the same uneasy vibe as the bear did and i absolutely love it

Also Little thing for ya to know in case ya didn't :D

Did you know that, according to the producer, the bear mimicking the voice was also a double meaning for the bear as well, as it was confused about what is happening to itself and in pain due to its mutation. I guess that's why the bear scene greatly unnerved me for some reasons besides the obvious, I think it's the contextual fact that you’re supposed to understand that the bear is actually suffering which makes the fact that it screams “help me” even more unsettling.

The fact that the disturbing, nightmarish part comes not only from the brute force of the bear but the fact that it has absorbed the consciousness of its victim and both the victim and the bear are suffering and confused. Even when it's killed you can scarcely almost here it say "Help me, It Hurts". Its a nightmarish perfect way to show how EVERYTHING in the shimmer is suffering. And what makes it worse is when you realize and think about it really closely it DIDNT even fatally hurt anyone until it was shot at.


also another Easter egg, apparently while making the scene, the people who made the bear affectionally nicknamed him Homerton, after some London subway transit system XD

Holy wow, that was some fantastic insider fact! You're right, it makes everything about this damn bear even more unsettling, i hadn't thought of it that way before. Thank you so much for sharing this! (Homerton....okay, now this is just cute XD)

yeah I mean some people get so caught up in the fear factor of the scene they don't even realize

Like think of it like this

Ever realize The bear didn't attack any character at first when it first walked into the house. It attacked Anya yes, but that was probably because she was going absolutely bloody psycho and about to kill the rest of them, which the bear probably heard from outside. Even so, it didn't even kill her before she started unloading on it, just wounded her. It even puts its mouth on Josie almost in a seemingly affectionate manner much like big cats and bears are known to do to humans they have positive relationships to. Sheppard was closest to Josie out of the other girls you saw that in the movie.

The bear and Sheppard are both in pain and begging for help until Anya starts firing her rifle at it. Its at THAT point the bear's survival instincts take over and it goes into a blind rage and tries to kill everyone.

and yes the name is cute XD why must they give cute names to things that are nightmare inducing

Pff, gib dir mal die unerklärliche rätselhafte Omnipräsenz des DI GI CHARAT BÄREN :omg:

Andererseits, Bärenbrüder macht alles wieder gut. :meow:

Oh, und Danke dass du mich zu Japanoschlampen geführt hast. Chepseh kennt eben doch noch nicht alles.

Yes! On all and so many levels I agree (not to mention this picture)! ;)
I want that glimmer-thing in our world! La la la la

The creature?

I think the creature (or creatures) is a result of the "shimmer" that is surrounding Area X. (=
In an article on nerdist.com this phenomenon is described a bit more (it also contains spoilers, in case you haven't seen the movie).

Ich möchte nur kurz erwähnen (ich find' das Bild btw super dufte und mag deinen Stil total), dass mich Officer Bär in der Beschreibung gerade extrem glücklich gemacht hat.

Ich hatte erst den guten alten Pedobear reinpacken wollen, habe mich dann aber an Officer Bär aus Japanoschlampen erinnert - und eindeutig als besser befunden. 8D

Oh Gott, der fucking Bär. Hatte den (und den Film) tatsächlich erfolgreich verdrängt. Leck mich am Socken. Will mir gar nicht vorstellen, was dein Mutant hier für Geräusche von sich geben würde, brr.
