Films: Jaws of Satan (1981)
Location: Forest/Civilized area/Cave
Height/Weight: That of an average King Cobra.
Summary: If you were to ask any religious folk what they'd associate pure evil with, chances are they'd bring up snakes at some point. While that's a bit unfair, there are times when they might not be so crazy...
History: One day, the Devil himself decided to possess a king cobra living in a traveling circus. From there, the cobra escaped into a small town in Alabama, killing anyone who got in its way and generally terrorizing the public. The only one who seems to have a prayer (literally) is one of the few ancestors of Saint Patrick, who was said to have exorcised Ireland of snakes long ago.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: Through some divine intervention and a cross, our protagonists are able to burn the possessed cobra to ashes and banish Satan back.
Weakness: Holy rituals.
Scariness Factor: 3.5-Most cobras would rather stay away from humans. But now, we have one that actively tries to inject some of the worst venom in the serpent world into unsuspecting victims. Bring out your crosses, folks.
Trivia: -Yes, there was a part in Saint Patrick's legend when he banished all snakes from Ireland. Many people believe that their absence from the country is due to him sending them all to the sea.
-The snake is, unfortunately, a frequent symbol of evil in many myths. Just ask Adam and Eve when that Serpent of Temptation came slivering down that tree of Eden.
