Without a convincing monster, Guillermo del Toro’s vision for The Shape of Water (in theaters now) would never work. How else could the audience find a woman falling in love with an amphibious creature even remotely plausible?

Easily one of the most stunning cinematic creations of the year, the monster in The Shape of Water is an impressive piece of effects wizardry, and in this exclusive behind-the-scenes video, you can see some of the work that went into making it.

A goal from the outset was to make this creature a handsome one. That meant filling out actor Doug Jones’ lips and giving him a tight monster bod.
