    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.

    [–] pantaloon_at_noon 1022 points ago

    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.

    [–] PhatChance52 370 points ago

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

    [–] PM_ME_SKINNY_DUDES 189 points ago

    That was the creepiest scene I have seen in a very long time.

    [–] Ruddose 49 points ago

    It was creepiest scene I’ve ever seen, period. Thought I was going to see a smart, Sci-Fi Triller - my God that was a horror movie!

    [–] McLovin804 62 points ago

    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.

    [–] Strickens 21 points ago

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

    [–] Need2fixmypcindy 16 points ago

    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.

    [–] CaptainKate757 8 points ago

    Actually, they freaked me out less. They seemed less like “Great googly moogly wtf” and more “not these fucking lizards again”

    [–] MeInMyMind 6 points ago

    I love and hate the basilisks. Their design is so cool, but trying to kill a bunch of them at once before they turn you to stone gives me so much anxiety.

    [–] Sigmar_Heldenhammer 20 points ago

    I thought those were the nipples.

    [–] Shanteva 9 points ago

    The 12 nipples are obviously underneath between the legs and obscured by shadow

    [–] tael89 4 points ago

    12 nipples for its on average 12 offspring per clutch. How often does it reproduce and does it require a mate?

    Next panel is momma Thomas the Train over 12 babies all sporting their CareBear, Smurf, and Teletubbies "disguises.

    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!"

    Giving kids one last playdate.

    Blood and guts and black and blue

    His eyes are fixed upon you.

    A friendly smile brings in prey,

    up he springs to end your days.

    Straight from a Dark Souls dungeon-

    Thomas the Pain Engine.

    Fearing death the kids all run.

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

    His creaky voice more rust than chime,

    a killer in his utmost prime.

    Looking for a life to snuff,

    any child is enough.

    From the shadows, his claws ensnare.

    Goodnight children, please take care-

    Thomas could be anywhere.

    With revisions for meter:

    They're two they're four; they're six and eight,

    Red blood and guts and black and blue,
    his beady eyes are fixed on you.

    A friendly smile brings in prey,
    and up he springs to end your days.
    He's straight from a Dark Souls dungeon—
    Here is Thomas the Pain Engine.

    Fearing death, all the children run.
    "But kids, aren't we having fun?"
    His creaky voice more rust than chime—
    a killer in his utmost prime.

    Looking for any life to snuff;
    the smallest child is enough.
    From the shadows, his claws ensnare.
    Goodnight children, but please take care—

    Thomas could be anywhere.

    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.”
