"An endless array of elevators. Monsters in every single one. It's the CostCo of death."

-Script's description of the cube prison.

Monsters are supernatural creatures provided to the Facility for the purpose of murdering the five sacrifices in the Ritual. For each monster there is an item that can be used to summon it.

Appearance and Characteristics

As to fill multiple horror conventions, each of the monster's appearances differ between them. It is clear that every monster is kept in thousands of identicle cube prisons roughly the size of the elevator, so the monsters (each) would be small enough to fit inside them, despite some of them appearing too big on the outside (like the Kraken and the Angry Molesting Tree).

Their behaviour differs between them, some of them acting like savage animals while the others remain calm and collected, as shown when some of them tried find a way out of their cubes while others calmly waited to be let out. 

While their modes of behaviour may differ between them, they all have a single, solitary goal in mind: kill every human being they see. They lack an actual will of their own, completely ignoring their situation, the surroundings and each other (unless they are monsters that operate in groups like the Dolls) simply to perform their dark task. Their methods of killing range from suffocation, stabbing, burning, slow torture and biting. While the book describes what they do as simply feeding themselves, they may not need to survive in mortal ways, those who eat simply eating for the sake of it (like the Giant Snake and the Zombies). Whether or not they can die varies, the Clown shown to be completely immune to bullets while Marty was able to kill a mutant with a single headshot.
