Films: Guardians (2009)
Location: Civilized Area/Forest
Height/Weight: That of an average human.
Summary: As one might guess, there will be people who are more than willing to combat creatures born of the darkness. We have seen them before, and most of them are the stuff of awesomeness. However, not everyone can be an Ash Williams or Ripley. But they can try. Oh, how they can try...
History: Hidden from the public eye is a secret organization known as the Guardians. These locked and loaded folks specialize in tracking down and bringing down evil creatures spawned from dark magic. But recently, their business has hit a nosedive, as the monsters of Twilight Cove are resilient against everything they throw at them. Now, their greatest asset and setback is an ancient eldritch tome that holds the secret to the monsters' end, but at the same time, is sought out by those who practice evil in the first place.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: After the monsters' weakness is discovered, fighting them becomes much easier, and their human master is disposed of. However, because the Guardians have the book, all manner of demons and madmen are out to get them. The fight continues...
Powers/Abilities: These monsters are incredibly agile, can leap spectacular distances in a single bound, and have hides impenetrable to anything. Also, they apparently spread infection sometimes.
Weakness: Weapons imbued with a formula mostly made from the blood of an infected person can harm them.
Scariness Factor: 2.5-Holy shit, we completely wish we could be terrified of these beasts. Their fantastic designs and near-invulnerable beings are smashed to smithereens by CGI that makes the Asylum look like Industrial Light and Magic. That, and some really stock roars, but that's us just being petty at this point. Someone cut these wonders of the demonic realm some slack!
Trivia: -This film was directed by Drew Maxwell, who also gave us equally micro-budget gems like "Hell's Labyrinth" and "Dark Nemesis".
-This film was produced in part by Shoreline Entertainment, which has had a hand in making low-budget films that run the gamut when it comes to being worth anything resembling a glance. Diamonds in the rough, some of them are.
