Films: Maneater (2009)
Alias: Stanley Hipp
Location: Forest/Civilized Area
Height/Weight: That of an average human.
Summary: About a year ago, "Twilight" struck us with what would happen if a supernatural teen wooed a regular teen while her beleaguered dad had to just sit back and watch. This...is only sort of that story. From the dad's perspective that is. The less cool dad, by the way.
History: Long ago, the spirit of a Wendigo infected a Native American known as Stanley Hipp. Driven now by a ravenous hunger, the man ambushed and killed whoever was unfortunate enough to venture too close to his turf, including the wife of Harry Bailey, who became fiercely overprotective of his daughter soon afterwards. Now the murders are piling up, and Harry is on the list of suspects.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: After being confronted and ousted as the killer, Stanley makes a last-ditch effort at eating his aggressors and infecting them with the curse, only to be gunned down and impaled through the heart. However, one person gazed into his eyes for too long, and is now the new Wendigo...
Powers/Abilities: If it gazes into one's eyes for long enough, it can transfer the curse to them.
Weakness: Its heart is its weak spot.
Scariness Factor: 4-As with any Wendigo, the horrors come smoothly here. Just seeing the cursed one's fingers gnawed to the bone in hunger is enough to make the stomach lurch. As for its true form, it looks like a psychotic Wildman that's completely given into its primal urges.
Trivia: -Stanley was played by Saginaw Grant, a respected Hereditary Chief of several Native American nations.
-For some reason, this film was dedicated to the 2008 Chicago Cubs.
