Arjen Tuiten teased some more.

Is Muncher able to possess metal objects? Because it's either a vat/tube of slime bursting at the seems or a possessed object.

Looking at the slime on the screws they are probably being pushed out.

That's a fibreglass mold, and at a guess, what was unhardened rubber leaking out of it, not ectoplasm.

My guess? The mold for a practical puppet/prop of the Muncher.

Yes, that's a mini Puft!
Cool! Thanks for confirming.

Interesting idea. Until now, we've only seen that Muncher eats 'em.

Maybe the blue rubber (?) could just be coincidental and it's some fiberglass mold that incorporated screws. That's definitely fiberglass.

EDIT: Ninja'ed by Kingpin. lol.

That mould could be for anything.
The colour of the silicone that we see is not indicitive of what will be cast from it.
It's a standard colouration for rtv silicone.

This is a matrix mould in the process of having the silicone layer poured over whatever sculpture or prop is encased inside the fiberglass jacket.
The screws on the side are actively blocking bleeder holes that allow trapped air to escape as the level of silicone rises and fills the mould.
You add the screws a section at a time once the silicone begins to bleed through until the mould is filled.

It could be anything from a prop, creature head underskull, costume peice and everything in between.
I doubt that it's any sort of foam latex or silicone creature skin or prosthetic makeup appliance as those are generally cast from much different looking moulds, designed specifically for that purpose.

As a guess, I would say that it's more likely to be something that will be a somewhat solid casting given that there's a silicone layer involved due to the general rule of thumb that hard parts come from soft moulds and soft parts come from hard moulds (usually a rigid mould comprised of just fiberglass, resins or plaster with no soft inner silicone layer)

Great post! Always awesome to see someone bring their knowledge to the table which brings us further from random guess work to actual intel.

Plus, who doesn’t love learning something new?

Great post.

Cheers
It's nice to be able to babble about my obsessions every once in a while

Hopefully w'ell get some more teases along these lines.
I'm really looking forward to seeing what behind the scenes material comes from this.
It would be great to see an indepth feature on the home release, focused on the production of all the practical work produced for the movie.

On a side note, I hope the big bad is a rusty compilation of metal objects fused together by poltergeists or something.

So this is maybe the most bizarrely random thing that will ever get posted on here but this week I watched Tiger King on Netflix (which if you have not I really don't even know how to describe it. LOL!) but it is mostly set in Oklahoma and there were a few parts of it that showed the little town some of them are from and I was like "Man that seriously looks like the set of Afterlife"! Did anybody else see that show and think about the new movie when looking at the background? It appears to me that they done some serious research into what a rural OK town looks like and I was thinking "is that the Sheriff's dpt from Afterlife???" during some of the scenes. Even though I knew it actually wasn't. I'm just saying it really seems like they've went all out for this and I hope that's the case!

Oh shit. My bad. Saw it retweeted by the Ghostbusters News account. It’s obviously a fan page. No blue check mark, barely any followers.
No worries. These kind of sites pop up in times like this. Official or not, out of context posts on social media... ugh. Pet peeve. Boy to have been on that temple set, I probably could have stared at the real doors forever.

But yes, that notebook was part of the 35th anniversary set from Gamestop.

But that temple art looked familiar. It was the same used by Insight for their collector variant of The Ultimate Visual History book which was really a replica of the sculpt of the Temple of Gozer doors used in the actual movie.
