“Info for the damned”

Films: How to be a Serial Killer (2008)

Alias: None

Type: Natural

Location: Civilized Area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: There is nothing more insufferable, yet at the same time no one more admirable, than one who wears his heinous acts on his sleeve. No strings attached, just plain evil in plain sight. Okay, maybe a bit of concealing here and there, but those who get to know him see him for his charisma...and bloodlust.

History: Mike Wilson is a suave and spirited person one moment, and a ruthless serial killer another. But recently, he's met a kindred soul in the form of Bart. Soon, Mike has something of an apprentice, as he shows him the dos and don'ts of being a murderer. It's all quite intricate, as it turns out. But then Mike's girlfriend starts to see the monster that Mike really is, and things get hairy...

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: Mike ultimately has to shoot Bart during a shootout with the cops, though Bart thanks him for all he's taught him beforehand even when faced with death. Mike is shot too, but in the end, they both survive. Mike has gone down in infamy as a great serial killer teacher, and while Bart lives fulfilled as a murderer, others will soon follow in the man's footsteps...

Powers/Abilities: None.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 3-Mike is affable during and not during the job of bringing people to early graves. He comes across as a morbidly enthusiastic driving teacher when he has a pupil, and is sort of likeable that way. That is, when he isn't being a psychotic murderer. No excuse, people. Do not do what this guy does.

Trivia: -Mike was played by Dameon Clarke, who is renowned for his voice acting roles, including Cell in the "Dragon Ball Z" Funimation dub and Handsome Jack in the "Borderlands" franchise. He seems to have a thing for playing charming yet terrifyingly murderous characters.

-This film was directed by Luke Ricci, who would later go on to be the line producer of the decidedly less funny 2011 horror film, "Rite of Spring".
