The Chinese Wildman was my favorite part of the movie. Where can I find out more about this character and how they came up with his design?

I found a link that has a bit of explanation, plus links for more research:

http://www.doomsdayguide.org/Mystery/unexplained_yeren.htm

However, this is for the actual "Chinese Wild Man", and not necessarily the one from the movie- although it seems that this legend is where Carpenter drew the idea from.

As far as the designs for the movie character, I can't find anything. There might be some info on the extras in the Special Edition DVD. Smile

I also found this link on Wiki. Talks about the red hair and all.

Just some more fun reading for you.
