I *really* want to know the answer, too.

This is the website owner's myspace page. Maybe someone who's myspaced-up can get a hold of him through that?

Ach. I was sure it was Mars Attacks, but those aliens have the huge eyes.

Looks like he's from a comedy sci-fi film to me. Maybe one of the Men in Blacks?

No, not Men in Black. In a way, he reminds me slightly of the aliens from Spaced Invaders, but thats not the answer either.

I'm rather hard pressed to guess on this one, as well.

The one on the left is Pan from Pan's Labryinth and the one on the right looks like it's from Bridge to Terabithia

Last night, I logged onto a well-known movie board's IRC server, and had quite a few movie experts take a look.

Their conclusion was not any well-known film (MIB2, 5th Element, Hitchhiker's Guide, and others were all suggested but dismissed by others). The eyes on the creature are pretty technically competent, though, so it's not probably not a pure amateur, either. Someone suggested that it's probably from a B-movie studio similar to Full Moon, although that was still pretty much just a guess.

Actually, now that I looked a little more closely, that picutre from Bridge is not the same. Sorry!

Honestly, though, even though the image comes from a horror fan page, it doesn't seem like it's necessarily horror only. It might come from a darker children's fantasy story, like Pan's Labyrinth.

Are those little baby arms he's got? If so it looks alot like a MODOK.

Alright, I've myspace messaged him. I hope he hasn't been hit with a deluge.

It's from Pan's Labirynth.

Response by poster: Thanks everyone, this seems to be harder that I thought.
I found a link to his last.fm account on his myspace and messaged him there but no reply so far...

He hasn't responded to me yet, snownoid.

Response by poster: It's The Baron against the Demons.

Oh thank god. How did you get the answer?

I looked all through that site and couldn't find any pictures resembling the creature in question.
posted by fuzzy_wuzzy at 11:46 PM on February 14, 2007

It is from that movie. Here's an english site for the movie, and if you look in the screen caps section, you'll see it.
