Films: Night of Bloody Horror (1969)
Location: Civilized Area
Height/Weight: That of an average human.
Summary: Psycho was a good movie. We get it. Can we please move away from incomprehensible and overall pointless rip-offs, please? Ah well, at least this one has some interesting ideas.
History: Westley Stuart's life sucked from the get-go. Blamed for the death of his brother Jonah and the suicide of his father at a young age, Wes had no one other than his mother to look after him now. And even then, his mother resented him in some capacity. Despite this, Wes had his looks, and girls liked him on instinct. Unfortunately, every date he has ends up dead due to his crippling psychosis.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: Before Wes' mother can kill one of his dates, the authorities arrive and shoot her dead. Wes is presumably left to suffer pure insanity before the law gets him next.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 2-Word of Wes' disastrous dates would spread quickly, and besides, he isn't that bad. Despite his interesting twist on Bates' plight, the hotel owner could out-gambit him anytime. Just leave the guy to mourn his dead relatives.
Trivia: -This film was directed by Joy N. Houck Jr., the son of the man who founded Howco Productions, a company known for producing low-budget double-feature fodder.
-Speaking of which, this film was part of the company’s final double bill, being paired with 1970's "Women and Bloody Terror".
