Films: Monster Ark (2008)
Location: Civilized Area
Height/Weight: That of an average human.
Summary: Archeologists from all over should know that if you go snooping for artifacts tied to mythological beasts, you'd best come prepared. Label them tall tales if you may, but know that the truth is oftentimes stranger, and deadlier, than fiction.
History: As it turns out, that Ark Noah built for two of every animal on the planet wasn't the only one. There was another for just one occupant. For millennia ago, the world was host to the Nephilim, all manner of giants and demons. Believing them to be a terrible influence on mankind, God ordered their cleansing, but one wouldn't go away. The one known as Tama. As it turns out, the darkness that had created the beast drove it mad with pain, forcing Noah to imprison it on his first Ark. Unfortunately, the forces of evil caused a gigantic spearhead to rise from the sea, destroying the ship and causing the cage that Tama was in to sink to the depths. In the modern day, those waters have evaporated into the country of Iraq, where the beast remains imprisoned. Until now...
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: After rampaging in more civilized areas, Tama is repelled by Noah's staff, and is shoved right back into the cage whence he came. He is now property of the Church, never to be released again.
Powers/Abilities: Tama is invulnerable to all manner of damage.
Weakness: Only holy objects, particularly the staff of Noah, can harm it.
Scariness Factor: 2.5-It sucks, really. A monstrous demonic gorilla-looking thing that cannot be killed sounds like a nightmare. And while it still is somewhat, the CGI is so thoroughly atrocious that you can tell when it's just swatting at the air when supposedly disemboweling a guy. Such a pity for an otherwise incredible design.
Trivia: -In Hebrew myth, the Nephilim are the offspring of the sons of God and the daughters of men. Their name translates to "Fallen", yet in the Book of Genesis, they are praised as heroes and superb example of humanity. A common contradiction, however, is that the Nephilim played a part in the Great Flood, but that's up for some debate.
-This film was also known as "Genesis Code".
