The Facility is the nerve center of the American branch of the Organization that runs the ritual for The Ancient Ones.


It is a vast compound with many sectors that runs deep underground beneath The Cabin.

While it may not necessarily have been inspired by anything specific, the Facility might remind people of the sub-level facility of the Umbrella Corporation from the Resident Evil franchise. It might also remind people of the SCP Foundation since the facility contains monsters, humanoids, mythical creatures, man made abominations, extra dimensional beings, and extraterrestrials.


  • Drew Goddard revealed in a recent Q&A that there are many facilities like the one featured in the film all over the world, each with a different arsenal of monsters.
