My head canon is that the black circles on the red part are the eyes. The “tank engine” part on top is camouflage or an angler’s light to draw in unsuspecting children.

level 2

I imagine the creature can push air through the “tank engine” part’s mouth to make Thomas groan and exhale, kind of like a whale’s blowhole.

The creature can’t speak our language and wouldn’t have the dexterity to form words with Thomas’s mouth, but Thomas’s strange utterances are enough for the child to move closer to see what Thomas is trying to say before realizing something is wrong.

level 3

Or it can mimic human speech just enough to lure people in, like that bear from Annihilation.

level 4

Forreal fuck that bear. Jesus Christ.

This is the third reference to Annihilation I've seen in the last 2 days. Shits getting weird. I'm gonna have to watch it before things get out of hand.

level 5

The ending is a little weird, but honestly worth it for the rest of the movie imo.

level 6

The ending light house scene sends my anxiety into overdrive, felt like I was having a panic attack watching that shit. Kudos to the directors and whoever helped out together that scene with the music and all.

level 7

I hated the sounds the alien replica made. They were so creepy.

Roland's eyes blazed with such wild blue fire that Eddie shrank away from him. Dimly, he heard Jake and Susannah gasp.

"Kill if you will, but command me nothing!" the gunslinger roared. "You have forgotten the faces of those who made you! Now either kill us or be silent and listen to me, Roland of Gilead, son of Steven, gunslinger, and lord of the ancient lands! I have not come across all the miles and all the years to listen to your childish prating! Do you understand? Now you will listen to ME!"

Fearing death the kids all run.

"But children, aren't we having fun?"

His creaky voice more rust than chime,

From the shadows, his claws ensnare.

Goodnight children, please take care-

Well Blaine appears at the end of book 3, the Wastelands - he’s a suicidal train/AI that loves riddles and holds the KA-Tet (think Fellowship) hostage until they can tell him one he can’t solve. That sequence which, if I remember correctly bridges books 3 and 4, is awesome.

Has anyone here read the dark towers series by Stephen King? This is reminding me of Charlie the Choo Choo/Blaine the Mono. There's a little rhyme that goes with the train's story, too.

“Don't ask me silly questions
I won't play silly games
I'm just a simple choo choo train
And I'll always be the same.
I only want to race along
Beneath the bright blue sky
And be a happy choo choo train
Until the day I die.”
