Shyamalan's Creatures

Despite what detractors say about his movies, I've always marveled at the creatures that inhabit Philadelphian filmmaker M. Night Shyalaman's many features such as SIGNS (alien being), THE VILLAGE (Those We Don't Speak Of) and LADY IN THE WATER (Scrunts, Tartutic, The Great Eatlon).
As I once mentioned to Mr. Fong, Shyamalan's creatures are fantastical and obscurely lensed to give them a sense of mystery and menace. That's not all, for they're also beautiful, original and enigmatic in a way that the late Stan Winston would be proud of.
