Why is the Armless monster often reffered to as the Lying Figure?

I can't recall them ever telling untruths nor were any of them in the horizontal position.

They fall down and crawl away (making weird, mechanical noises) when you beat them. Not sure though.

Lying Figure is the official term for them. They're from SH2, and if you ever shoot/beat them to the ground then 80% of the time they'll scuttle around on their stomach before getting up. So they're LYING down whilst doing that.

Ahh i see now. I've played SH2 many times and yes, they do scuttle about on the floor alot. Along with making really annoying noises :D

For someone who hasn't played the games, or just not SH2, it's easy to see the confusion as they don't do it in the film.

They are also inspired by Francis Bacon's painting series "Lying Figure."

Not that Im trying to disprove you, Amp, but this is a weird painting to draw inspiration from!

The first one reminds me of the LF from the game. Francis Bacon in general has obviously been used as inspiration for the games.

In the SH2 making of-documentary, Ito said they were inspired by his friend, who one day came to work with his hands shoved deep into his hoodie's pockets and nodding his head to some music he had in his walkman.

But I of course could be wrong, but this what I recall.

No, you're absolutely right.
