The creature, resembling a frog but with insectile wings, six front legs, and a spiked proboscis, broke free of a speckled egg that lay on a sand dune. It wandered through the desert and eventually flew up to the window of the Novacks' home. Inside, their daughter Sarah had just lost consciousness while listening to a radio broadcast that a woodsman had commandeered. As the creature approached her face, Sarah opened her mouth, allowing the hatchling to crawl inside and be swallowed.
Behind the scenes Edit
The concept of the creature originates from a story related by David Lynch in Quinoa, a short film released alongside Inland Empire, and in his Room to Dream autobiography: it involved a "frog-moth" Lynch saw while traveling in eastern Europe. Executive producer Sabrina S. Sutherland referenced the story and described the creature in "Part 8" as a "frogmoth" in a Reddit Ask-Me-Anything, as did the Visual effects company.
