Films: Dust Devil (1992)
Alias: The Naughtloper
Location: Desert/Civilized Area
Height/Weight: That of an average human.
Summary: There are demons driven by ambition. And there are those driven by rage. The Dust Devil is both of those things, and then some.
History: Appearing since the dawn of man, the Dust Devil has haunted the more barren parts of South Africa for some time. It's most recent host is a cowboy-looking American, and it mainly goes around killing those with suicidal thoughts, mutilating them and keeping some of their body parts.
Notable Kills: Nothing special
Final Fate: Eventually, the Dust Devil is halted by a kierie stick, but before the ritual meant to banish him can be complete, he gets a shotgun shell to the head by the woman he's been pursuing. Soon, the Devil's spirit inhabits the woman, and she becomes the next Dust Devil.
Powers/Abilities: Possession, control of sand, slight manipulation of reality.
Weakness: A kierie stick will stop him dead in his tracks, and burning a sacred root afterwards will make him unable to possess anyone.
Scariness Factor: 3.5-Looking like a nomadic outlaw, this guy is the last hitchhiker you want to encounter. He's got the power, and more importantly, the will to use it.
Trivia: -This film is mainly based around South African tales of a serial killer known as Nhadiep, who had previously inspired another film, 1989's "Windprints".
-The Dust Devil was played by Robert John Burke, who was known for his recurring roles in old "Law and Order" episodes.
