When asked by a fan how the effect for the burrowing "He Who Walks Behind the Rows" was created, special effects artist Wayne Beauchamp revealed that it was accomplished thanks to a special device called the "Turtle" - a wheelbarrow bucket flipped upside-down with added wheels. The device was set in rails in a trench, attached to a pulley system connected to a tractor, and then covered in a tarp with a layer of dirt and vermiculite on top. The tractor would pull forward and the Turtle would move beneath the tarp, creating a mound of earth that traveled from one point to another. The trench ended in a sharp hill, giving the illusion that the creature beneath was diving deeper into the ground. Beauchamp added that the trench itself was dug by a local group of Boy Scouts who were interested in learning how films and special effects were made. See more »

I got a great idea!

Let's pretend this guy is Isaac, and we're gonna put him in jail.
But what if he gets a get-out-of-jail free card?

this movie, the only one of the COTC series written by Stephen King, truly kicks ass. the special effects are excellent considering it was made in 1984. acting is excellent, the two star actors are excellent, and the COTC leader Issac (who makes a return in COTC 6: Issac's Return) is an excellent actor and malakai, the rival leader, is wicked scary. This is definitely the scariest of the series. I rate this 9.8/10. If u like this, then watch COTC 2: The Final Sacrifice, another great movie.
Cert: 18s, for frequent and gory violence, and occasional language
