Films: Cemetary Gates (2006)
Location: Civilized Area/Forest/Underground
Height/Weight: That of an average bear.
Summary: Bless the hearts of eco-activists. They try so hard to make a point about how we should preserve the environment. And they're right! But like any activists, there are times where they can get careless. And that never bodes well.
History: The result of a freakish experiment, Precious the Tasmanian devil was broken out of her confines when some eco-activists spirited her away and into a truck. Alas, she broke out, ate her rescuers, and carved out a niche in a local cemetery. Bad news for some would-be filmmakers, who are about to live a very real horror movie in this thing's killing grounds.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: After being confronted in its cave, Precious is stabbed in the eye, imprisoned in her hole, and blown up with a stick of dynamite. However, it is later shown that she gave birth to twins...who will most likely starve to death without their mother. Sorry. It is what it is.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 4.5-Let's get the obvious out of the way. Precious is a horrifying abomination that unsettles us just by looking at her. Seriously, this thing has the most twistedly malformed face you could ever hope not to see on a mutated mammal (THOSE TEETH). Also, she's a violent piece of work, so there's that.
Trivia: -Tasmanian devils are indeed rather vicious. However, they are no bigger than small dogs, and tend to feast mainly on smaller animals carrion. They are also quite temperamental.
-Before the Tasmanian devil, the largest carnivorous marsupial was the thylacine, or the Tasmanian wolf/tiger. Needless to say, it was hunted to extinction for being such a pest, and the devil took the title.
