Films: Shapeshifter (2005)
Location: Civilized Area/Haunted home
Height/Weight: That of an average human.
Summary: Shapeshifting is one of the most terrifying powers a particularly malevolent person could have. All the people you could deceive, all the lives you could ruin, the possibilities are boundless. Thankfully, this shapeshifting being was limited in his scope...but no less dangerous for it.
History: A menacing demon summoned by unknown means, this shapeshifter took the form of whomever wore a Satanic medallion so that it could look for victims to eat. For today, he's going incognito into a maximum security prison where the food is plentiful and not always the brightest.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: After seemingly dying in a containment room, the shapeshifter assaults again...only to have his medallion pulled out of his chest, sending the beast back to Hell and leaving behind the body of the man he possessed. However, a woman is later seen wearing the medallion as a good luck charm, unaware of its deadly potential...
Powers/Abilities: Any wearing his medallion will be possessed by him, and he'll assume their form to trick people.
Weakness: Remove the medallion from his chest and he's dust.
Scariness Factor: 3.5-A shapeshifting demon should be a bit scarier than what we have here, but we can't fault this being for trying. His vicious visage is a sight with those horns and teeth, and any kill he makes is bound to be a VERY messy one.
Trivia: -Strangely, the end credits advise staying away from shapeshifters with ties to the mob. Are they saying this cannibal demon was a crime boss at some point?
-This film was known in Mexico as "Prisión Maldita", which basically means "Damned Prison".
