Films: Vicious (2003)
Height/Weight: Slightly higher than an average grizzly bear.
Summary: Can the government ever keep a lid on its untamed monster experiments? Why do they even do this anyway? Machines were way more efficient anyway. But hey, everyone has a hobby, don't they?
History: A ravenous juggernaut of a beast has escaped its government confines after they made it as a superweapon. As you can imagine, it's feeling right at home in the isolated woods, where it can feast on the animals and unsuspecting campers. A rather insane government agent has been sent to apprehend the monster, even if he has to use some campers as bait.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: After killing many a camper and soldier, the beast is lured into a car that goes careening into the lake. One set timebomb later, and the monster goes kablooey.
Powers/Abilities: A rather resilient hide capable of shaking off most damage.
Weakness: Heavy artillery.
Scariness Factor: 2.5-Despite some...well, vicious-looking close-ups, this lizard-dog-bear thing is hampered by some ridiculously awful CGI. A shame too, because that's not what the director wanted at all.
Trivia: -While we're on the subject, the monster was going to be entirely practical, but time constraints resulted in only the head being finished, much to director Matt Green's chagrin.
-If it's any consolation, Green would eventually get a job as a propmaker in 2016's "Hidden Figures".
