I’m going to keep this short and sweet. When I wrote this part of the story, I imagined the small, creepy beetle slowly pulling its way out of Jim’s forehead. Really gory, painful stuff - we’d film it slowly to draw out the tension and shock the audience. It had never occurred to me that the beetle would grow while inside Jim’s body. When I saw this huge monster erupt from Jim’s skull, I had a huge smile on my face. Great adaptation, Jerem! And kudos to Shi, too, for the excellent blood splatter.
shi: You know, I did not see this coming. At all. When I received this page from Jerem, my mouth fell open as large as the screen.
