“War games are not fun games”

Films: Ghost Machine (2009)

Alias: Prisoner K

Type: Mystical

Location: Eldritch location

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: As the military grows in funds (unfortunately), so too does its technological ambition. Fighting with bots with no physical repercussion isn't a bad idea, but then...you get a goddamn ghost into the mix. A ghost in the machine, if we will.

History: The U.S. military is developing a combat simulator that could revolutionize war forever. But then some rowdy soldiers steal it to have some good VR gaming delights. Unfortunately, no one told them about Prisoner K, the spirit of a woman horribly tortured to death before her rage gave her the will to rise in spirit for vengeance. And now she's infected the entire cyberspace, turning the game into a survival pit.

Notable Kills: Anytime the cyberspace is used to kill someone.

Final Fate: As the software is about to be wiped, K is cast into a glowing light presumably set to erase her. It seems to work...but the software seems to be inherently corrupted with her, and now anyone who dares put on that headset has to contend with her wrath...

Powers/Abilities: Has access to limitless psychic powers in cyberspace, but most of the time she sticks with her trusty chain whip.

Weakness: Erasing the data will set her back, but only for so long. Also, she can become corporal at times, so physical combat can ward her off.

Scariness Factor: 4-The CGI on her chain is a bit much, but aside from that, you'll never want to pick up a VR set after this. She can do anything in her digital domain, be it read your mind or rip you to pieces pixel by pixel. It doesn't help that she's actually kind of hot. Morbid backstory, though.

Trivia: -K was played by Halla Vilhjalmsdottir, who also starred in...um..."Dorks and Damsels", anyone?

-This film was directed by Chris Hartwill, whose other works are just a couple televised things.

Well, that hood can't be any good for her vision. You might be fine.

Suffice to say, she's been through a lot.
Tom Clancy, this has gone too far.
So...power of suggestion?
