“Toadstool Stool”

Films: Fungicide (2002)

Alias: None

Type: Mutant

Location: Forest/Civilized Area

Height/Weight: That of average humans.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Oh, dear Lord, first the trees, now this?! What was it with...oh God, we just remembered that this decade is FULL of killer plant movies. Some good, most BAD. Can you guess what this falls under?

History: One day, a mad scientist accidentally spilt his chemicals all over some native mushrooms near his home. From there spawned an army of giant, living, quasi-intelligent killer fungi with a taste for flesh. It's as ridiculous as it sounds.

Notable Kills: Any time they manage to kill somebody. Any time. It's a sight for befuddled eyes.

Final Fate: After being lured towards the house, all of the fungi are taken out by a hidden explosive that takes out the house and them. However, the scientist later shows up to imply that he's going to do the same to apples...

Powers/Abilities: Some of the fungi occasionally show the ability to grow arms.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 1.5-Don't let their fangs fool you. These guys are absolute chumps. Their lack of ability is baffling, the suits look amateur hour, and don't even get us started on the garbage digital effects. How ANYONE died to the non-always-there hands of these things is beyond us.

Trivia: -This film was directed by Dave Wascavage, who would later go on to do..."Suburban Sasquatch". Oi vey.

-The largest fungi on Earth is the extinct Prototaxites, which flourished during the Silurian and Devonian periods. During that time, it was considered to be the tallest terrestrial lifeform around.
