Films: Lockjaw-Rise of the Kulev Serpent (2008)
Location: Haunted home/Forest
Height/Weight: That of a bus.
Affiliation: Neutral, leaning on Evil
Summary: Vengeance gets the best of us, especially when we're perfectly aware that we have ancient evil artifacts on our side. So what do you think happens when a guy finds a summoning object at a young and abused age? Nothing good, we presume.
History: Created by an African voodoo priest, the Kulev Stick is an artifact of great and terrible power. Anyone who wields it can exact revenge on anyone by drawing with it whatever they want to summon. In this case, a boy used it to draw Lockjaw, a monstrous amalgamation of the creatures the priest's family encountered when they moved to America. Namely, the snake and the alligator. The boy has the beast kill his abusive father. Many years later, some hoodlums ran over his wife in an act of horrific stupidity, causing the grown man to relapse and summon Lockjaw again. But even he cannot control the beast for long...
Notable Kills: Any time it kills via tail slap. In the last instance, there's a decapitation.
Final Fate: After the survivors craft a makeshift idol with the drawing of Lockjaw on it, a brave teen allows himself to be swallowed while holding it. A weakened Lockjaw then gets its head blasted off by the son of the voodoo priest via rocket launcher. But the Kulev stick still remains. Pray no one finds it...
Powers/Abilities: Lockjaw is completely invincible, grows rapidly, and can self-fertilize.
Weakness: Only when the drawing is destroyed can Lockjaw be weakened. Also, only the family of who made the stick can stop him.
Scariness Factor: 3-A giant gator-headed snake has more of a right to be scarier than this. The crap CGI hinders a stealthy, almost sadistic monster that prefers to use the business end of its blunt tail than its teeth. Believe us when we say that sounds way more painful.
Trivia: -This film was also known as "Carnivorous", "DMX Carnivorous", and "Snake Megadeth".
