With word that the rotting Montauk Monster caucus was stolen—or reclaimed by Plum Island scientists—this opportunistic FX outfit is offering a latex prop version on eBay. The “painstakingly hand air brushed” beast measures about 20″ long, is hollow inside, and should not “be confused with the cheap crap from the far east with toxic lead paint” according to the seller’s description. There’s only one problem, it doesn’t really look like “Monty” in either of the photos. You’d think that a special FX company would do a much better job than this sad excuse for a demon beast from Hell. Then again, this is the Hollywood version. Speaking of which, there’s a new theory being floated around: it’s a PR stunt by the makers of independent movie “Splinterheads.”
