“Gone fishing...and gone again”

Films: Snakehead Terror (2004)

Alias: None

Type: Mutant

Location: Lake/Forest

Height/Weight: Up to that of orca whales.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: In the same year as the Frankenfish, we have yet another tale of terror involving the reviled snakehead trout. And this time, they may not all be as big, but they make up for it in sheer numbers.

History: Long ago in the quiet town of Cultus Lake, Maryland, an invasion of snakeheads led to the waters being poisoned, killing everything underwater. Some time later, an idiot decided to spread human growth hormones throughout the lake to bolster the fish still living there...only, the snakeheads didn't actually die. So now, we have an army of snakeheads that is now filled with alligator-sized biters out to get everything on land and in water.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: After a gargantuan specimen is revealed and several snakeheads have bit the dust, all of them are exterminated when an electrical cable is used to zap the entire lake. This time, the method is effective.

Powers/Abilities: The ability to stay out of water for an extended period of time.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 3.5-Some hokey CGI might not do well for these creatures, but there are those fleeting moments where it actually does look like people are being menaced by super-sized homicidal fish. It doesn't help that they come in the hundreds and are capable of growing up bigger than the Frankenfish could ever hope to be.

Trivia: -Like "Frankenfish", this film is mostly based of the infamous snakehead invasion of Crofton, except this one actually takes place in the state Crofton was in (namely Maryland).

-Although universally hated, there is one thing people like about the snakehead. That being how delicious the meat is. Indeed, it is a rare delicacy across the world.
