Alias: The Pentagram Killer

Type: Mystical

Location: Civilized Area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: If you are a serial killer, chances are you answer to no higher power. But if you do, it’s most likely ol' Beelze-boss himself. Mr. Channing was one of those people, and it mostly paid off for him.

History: Patrick Channing was called the Pentagram Killer for a reason. He owed Satan his life, and he engraved a bloody pentagram in all of his victims. But some say that killing him is a bad idea. And really, it is. For when he finally got the chair, he simply invoked the first power of Jesus Christ. Namely, resurrection. Now, he's out there, possessing whoever he pleases.

Notable Kills: Nothing special

Final Fate: While possessing a nun, Patrick is stabbed with a cross, seemingly driving him away. But there are some implications that he might still be out there…

Powers/Abilities: Possession.

Weakness: Holy weapons, like crosses.

Scariness Factor: 4-That mask is one thing, but his possessive abilities are another. Indeed, this is a killer whose better off imprisoned than killed. A rare sentiment, that is.

Trivia: -This film was also known as "Pentagram" and "Transit", the latter once considered its formal title.

-No special effects were utilized during the scene where the killer lands on his feet after jumping off a fairly tall building. Only a stunt-double.

Satan simply watches. Man kills.

Good luck explaining this to your boss, ma'am.

The shadow of powerful evil follows all around.

Just like a chainsaw, except good luck getting that through the door.
Not accounting for taste, are you?

Do any of the three powers account for possibly shattered teeth due to a fist?
