Films: Se7en (1995)
Location: Civilized Area
Height/Weight: That of an average human.
Summary: All of you wiseacres who claim to be agents of God while killing people can take a hike. Besides, even if you really believed it, you'd never out-do the horrible acts of John Doe.
History: Believing himself to have been sent by the Lord to punish humanity, John Doe set about killing anyone he deemed worthy of the Seven Deadly Sins. Needless to say, this resulted in some very bizarre, horrific murders.
Notable Kills: Stuffs a big guy to death with food (gluttony), makes someone screw a woman with a strap-on blade (lust), and...well...
Final Fate: It is actually Doe who embodies Envy, as he was jealous of his cop pursuer's marriage. So he put his wife's head in a box to anger said cop into killing him. It works, the cop becomes the one representing Wrath, and Doe dies content that his acts will live in infamy...or at least a documentary and a T-shirt.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 4-Kevin Spacey's calm yet unhinged performance really owe to this chessmaster of a murderer. It wouldn't be so bad except most of his victims committed very minor infractions, and ultimately, he's not on any noble quest whatsoever, despite his claims to the contrary.
Trivia: -Alternative endings included one where Doe killed a wife lookalike, and merely tricked the cop. Another involved a burning building climax, and another had Morgan Freeman kill Joe instead so that the cop doesn't become Wrath.
-A sequel, titled Ei8ght, was pitched, but the director claimed that he would literally rather have cigars in his eyes than burden his movie with a sequel featuring a psychic Morgan Freeman, or really a sequel for that matter.
