The whole point of the movie Bird Box is that nobody can look at the monsters which are the central premise of the movie but what happens when the guy who sculpted them decides to reveal one of the monsters to the world?

In a fate worse than the one suffered by those who meet medusa’s gaze, anyone who looks at the Bird Box is driven to commit suicide. Luckily for viewers of the film, the movie’s director, Susanne Bier, decided to have the monsters remain unseen, but it seems like Andy Bergholtz, the monsters sculptor didn’t get the memo.

Andy Bergholtz, has decided to show the world what could have been since his sculptures didn’t make the movie’s final cut. According to him, the monster was originally going to be seen in a “‘dream/nightmare sequence’ with Sandra Bullock’s character” and because of her “pregnant state and emotional arc thru the movie, the producers felt Sandra’s nightmare would have something to do with a twisted, demonic baby creature attacking her.” He also describes how this would only be the version of the monster that Bullock’s character would see, owing to the fact that “the fatal ‘vision’ that each character saw would most likely be different for each person.

The monster can be viewed below.

*Some spoilers ahead for BIRD BOX, continue reading at your own risk!* We had the unique pleasure of designing a creepy makeup for the film, although the scene ultimately ended up on the cutting room floor. Keep in mind, the fatal "vision" that each character saw would most likely be different for each person (you'll understand if you've seen the film), and this makeup appeared in a cut "dream/nightmare sequence" with Sandra Bullock's character. Considering her pregnant state and emotional arc thru the movie, the producers felt Sandra's nightmare would have something to do with a twisted, demonic baby creature attacking her (that's as much as I could gather about the context of the scene anyway). I sculpted at least 3 or 4 variations on the design before it was approved, which began as a more aggressive, monstery look and was revised to be a bit more subtle in the end. I also had the pleasure of painting the finished prosthetics before sending them to set, to be worn and performed by the one and only Dirk Rogers @thehalloweendirk, applied by the great @proutyfx. It's funny, I read an interview recently where Bullock described the creature as a "snake-like, green man with a horrific baby face". Many folks have speculated what the creature may have looked like, but they fail to realize the "snake-like green man" portion was simply Dirk in a spandex green-screen suit 😄. Everything from the neck down was intended to be a giant CGI creature/body added later. In the end, I actually really liked the movie and think it was better off NOT showing the makeup. Kudos to the director for sticking to her guns on that one. Still a fun project to be a part of, thanks Howie! @hoops511 #netflix #birdbox
