Ian Bellows is the typical first victim in a film like this; a jolly local farmer on the island, and introduced to the audience in the pre-credits sequence of the film as cheerfully irritable, complaining about things with a wry smile and holding no grudges against anyone. All of these things telegraph exactly how dead he is in the coming moments.
We see Ian walking home through the forest in the dark, whereupon he hears a strange, electronic echoing noise coming out of a nearby cave. This is the otherworldly sound made by the film's feature monsters, the Silicates - but Ian doesn't know that. The noise is weird enough to pique Ian’s curiosity and determined to find the cause of this sound he enters the cave. A moment later, we hear him screaming bloody murder with his screams interspersed with icky sucking sounds.
