Flying Bug
This is a flying bug from the 2007 Stephen King thriller, The Mist. This bug is made of both resin and foam rubber; the legs are made of resin and the tail which has a solid internal post is made of rubber. The two plastic wings are lined with a raised skeleton with metal prongs that attaches them to the body of the insect. The flying bugs can be seen when the town’s people are sheltered in the supermarket and when night comes, these insects are attracted to the light, they get inside the building and are shot at, set fire to and stomped on. This particular bug has suction cups on his head and tail to attach him to the glass of the supermarket to make it appear as if he has landed and attempting to enter the store by breaking the glass.
