“Reich when it can't get any worse”

Films: Reign of the Gargoyles (2007)

Alias: Vorthorn the Horned King

Type: Mystical

Location: Civilized Area

Height/Weight: Twice that of average humans.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Nazis once again cannot go through a war movie without trying to bolster their forces because deep inside they know they're pathetic fanatical losers. So what else is new? Aside from the fact that they tried and failed to get gargoyles on their side?

History: Long ago, the evil God Vorthorn was summoned via a gargoyle statue imbued with a Bloodstone by those persecuted for their religion, only to turn on them once the job was done. He was taken out by a brave knight wielding the Spear of Destiny. But after thousands of years, Vorthorn has recovered, and both he and his army of gargoyles have been discovered by Nazis under the command of Heinrich Himmler. Alas, the gargoyles immediately take to wreaking havoc.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: After Vorthorn is rammed by a plane, those on board use the recently uncovered Spear of Destiny to stab him once more, turning him and the rest of his army to stone that falls to the ground dead.

Powers/Abilities: None.

Weakness: Anything conventional, but all Gargoyles instantly fear the Spear of Destiny, the only weapon that can kill Vorthorn. Should he be stabbed, his army will petrify with him.

Scariness Factor: 3-Some really bad CGI makes it a darn shame when the gargoyles are around. Their diversity in shape and size offers some uniqueness to them as they're tearing you and your craft to shreds. Still, it doesn't quite change the fact that they wouldn't be out of place in a bad video game.

Trivia: -The Spear of Destiny is a real artifact, also known as the Spear of Longinus and the Holy Lance. It was also the thing that a Roman soldier stabbed Jesus Christ with in order to make sure he was dead on the cross.

-The flashbacks in this film actually have bits and pieces of footage from "Dragon Storm". Hasn't that kingdom had enough trouble from mythological beasts already?!

"Wait. Paris?! Weren't we supposed to knock over Russia?!"
"F this war, I'm out!"

The Nazis had their own Muppet Eagle, eh?
"I'll have TWO!"
And you thought Gremlins would be their problem.
