OK, I rewatched the scene, so here's a much more faithful representation:

Now it makes sense. I never would have guessed that this enormous creature was a dog, though I get now that it was intended to be forced perspective, which can be tricky to pull off in craptionaries.

The dog's brief slow-motion close-up before the descent into grass is what I was going for, but I got my sides mixed up. But then again I have a disposition to botch up dogs... those feisty creatures.

My old version of this scene was a bit more minimalist:

Speaking of old, I found some old biro and pencil scribbles I did of film scenes, perfect for crap pictionary.

Don't think I know it, though if it's drawn a long time ago, I reckon it's from some popular movie.

A James Bond film?

Good timing, and I'm glad you guys are wrong because I just finished another crap from the same film.
I could be wrong about some of the things that happen in this scene, but I drew them anyway. The main thing is the occurrence with the red stuff. And don't mind the shape-shifting abilities of the person, it's not a Masaaki Yuasa film, I just felt like experimenting a bit.

Was this scene in the recent adaptation? And was the other one? I've only seen the 1990 one, which this is.

The second scene definitely was (present in the remake). Very memorable and smart symbolism.

I'm still not exactly sure what the first one is supposed to represent - being trapped in a room slowly filled by water?



Now some more drops of blood:

Check around 0:40-1:10 if you don't want to see IT all.

Yeah, no, it wasn't in the remake. I can see how it sticks out, though. I've been meaning to see the 1990 adaptation.

The subliminal anti-alcohol message wasn't intentional. At least not on my part. I can't speak for the makers of the film.

The second one cleared it up. I thought the guy on the left held an electric fan up to the guy on the platform/table, my first thought being: https://youtu.be/_6dtasEqpLM?t=50s

Maybe a tiny bit more accuracy would have helped. There should be two window-cleaners in this scene. You have a problem with accuracy, Mr. Carmel. You believe that you are special. That somehow the rules do not apply to you. Obviously you are mistaken. This guessing game is one of the top games on the Unofficial iCM Forum because every single participant understands that they are part of a whole, thus if a participant has a problem the Unofficial iCM Forum has a problem. The time has come to make a choice, Mr. Carmel. Either you choose to scribble two stick-figures when there should be two from this day forward, or you choose to find yourself another crap game. Do I make myself clear?
