Films: Blast Vegas (2013)
Location: Civilized Area
Summary: Ah, Las Vegas. Home of excessive gambling, Elvis impersonators, and general American decadence. But one day, something would come along to put the most extravagant major city in America to rest. And it'll be quite the dusty experience.
History: Long ago, an Egyptian conqueror named Thutmose III wielded a magic sword. It was said to bring great fortune to the heroic, but should it fall into the wrong hands, it will visit ruin upon both him and those around him. The sword was eventually discovered in the modern day, and then placed into a casino in Las Vegas. A few idiots decided to steal the sword, and they plunged it into the ground. But no one told them that the sword carried a terrible curse that manifested in the form of a sentient sandstorm. Now, they must race to undo the curse before it obliterates Las Vegas.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: The curse is finally lifted when one of the survivors, having proved himself to be a selfless individual, raises the sword to the sky, bringing down the Heavens and sending the storm away. Of course by that point, Las Vegas is buried in sand, and there's still at least one tiger still roaming around.
Powers/Abilities: Can take on the form of a massive sand serpent, as well as summon dangerous wild animals.
Weakness: The storm will only stop if a person with a pure heart raises the sword to the Heavens.
Scariness Factor: 3.5-A living cataclysm is not exactly the kind of monster one would wish to face. Especially one that can turn into and/or summon vicious beasts. But alas, the crappy CGI saps a lot of the scares that could have potentially been there. Also, it's as easy as not picking up that damn sword in the first place.
Trivia: -As one might guess from seeing this film, none of it was filmed in the actual Las Vegas, but in fact Indio, California.
-This film was initially called "Blowing Vegas Off the Map", but the creators felt that was a title more befitting of an erotic film.
