Eventually, one Pterobuzzard breaks one of the front store windows open when plucking the Scorpion-Flies off, and enters the store, where it kills and devours Tom Smalley when it lands on him. David then attacks the Pterobuzzard with a torched mop, setting it ablaze. The Pterobuzzard then flies around the store until it eventually succumbs to its burns.
FilmEditWhen plucking a Scorpion-Fly from one of the display windows, a Pterobuzzard accidentally breaks the window open. Soon after, another Pterobuzzard follows the Scorpion-Flies through the broken window into the store, and flies rampant throughout the store, eating the Scorpion-Flies.
A second Pterobuzzard enters through the broken window, falling onto Tom Smalley and eating a chunk of flesh from his neck, killing him. David then uses a torched mop to set the second Pterobuzzard on fire, then beat it to death.
Ollie manages to shoot the remaining Pterobuzzard in the wing once it eats the last Scorpion-Fly, disabling its flight. The Pterobuzzard sees Billy, and is about to attack him as its next meal, when David drags a petrified Billy out of the way. Ollie then shoots the Pterobuzzard from behind in the head, killing it.
The Pterobuzzards are albino creatures, described as nightmarish and pterodactyl-like with long, membranous wings and a heavy hooked beak.
in the film, the Pterobuzzards have dark-pinkish skin, pale-grey eyes, double-jointed legs and four pterodactyl-like wings (two in place of arms, two on their backs).
- A very similar creature, also believed to have come from another reality, appears in Stephen King's From A Buick 8, possibly from the same dimension.
