Films: Desperation (2006)
Alias: Collie Entragian, Ellen Carver
Location: Civilized Area
Height/Weight: That of an average human.
Summary: Stephen King and vague, unknowable evils go together seamlessly. So don't be surprised when you realized just how scary it is when a scarred sheriff played by Ron Pearlman comes barreling his way towards you.
History: Long ago in the quiet town of Desperation, Nevada, some Chinese miners came across what would come to be known as "The China Pit". And upon digging into it, they unearthed the wrathful spirit known as Tak. This being of evil enjoyed killing for killing's sake, and possessed the town into destroying itself. Now, the only permanent resident is sheriff Collie Etragian, who is still possessed by Tak. Pray for the ones who unwittingly drive by Desperation, lest they end up victims of torture for the mad being.
Notable Kills: Possesses a mountain lion into killing someone.
Final Fate: After the survivors discover the China Pit, one dives into it and ignites explosives to seal Tak away forever.
Powers/Abilities: Possession, high reliance.
Weakness: Should the source of his genesis be destroyed, so will he be.
Scariness Factor: 4-Tak can drive animals mad, possess anybody, and can be anywhere at any time. It doesn't help that those he possesses end up covered in scars at best and horribly mutilated at worst. And regardless as to who he possesses, Ron's voice can be heard amongst the legion he carries.
Trivia: -At one point, the entire set for this film caught fire, and injured at least five people while the entire place went up in smoke.
-Stephen King blames this film's poor ratings on it being aired the same time as "American Idol" did.
