Beldan - Mythical Creatures Guide:The Beldam is best known from the popular filmCoraline(2009) as the "other mother" ( if you haven't seen this movie, youdefinitelyshould, it's great.) Beldam is an archaic word for a kind of witch. I must say again, witches aren't at all evil, it's just that people never trusted them. The Beldam is a spider-like creature that has button eyes and sewing needle fingers. The Beldam eats children, and will lure them into a trap. While a Beldam's main form is that of
Coraline's other parents proposing her to sow buttons on her face. This creepy request represents a slave permanently escaping reality through dissociation, effectively causing them to lose their very soul. Notice the two horned (Baphomet-like) heads in the background. They are prominently lighted to emphasize the black magic/occult transformation of the MK process.
