“Sheriff of No-Man's Land”

Films: Desperation (2006)

Alias: Collie Entragian, Ellen Carver

Type: Mystical

Location: Civilized Area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Stephen King and vague, unknowable evils go together seamlessly. So don't be surprised when you realized just how scary it is when a scarred sheriff played by Ron Pearlman comes barreling his way towards you.

History: Long ago in the quiet town of Desperation, Nevada, some Chinese miners came across what would come to be known as "The China Pit". And upon digging into it, they unearthed the wrathful spirit known as Tak. This being of evil enjoyed killing for killing's sake, and possessed the town into destroying itself. Now, the only permanent resident is sheriff Collie Etragian, who is still possessed by Tak. Pray for the ones who unwittingly drive by Desperation, lest they end up victims of torture for the mad being.

Notable Kills: Possesses a mountain lion into killing someone.

Final Fate: After the survivors discover the China Pit, one dives into it and ignites explosives to seal Tak away forever.

Powers/Abilities: Possession, high reliance.

Weakness: Should the source of his genesis be destroyed, so will he be.

Scariness Factor: 4-Tak can drive animals mad, possess anybody, and can be anywhere at any time. It doesn't help that those he possesses end up covered in scars at best and horribly mutilated at worst. And regardless as to who he possesses, Ron's voice can be heard amongst the legion he carries.

Trivia: -At one point, the entire set for this film caught fire, and injured at least five people while the entire place went up in smoke.

-Stephen King blames this film's poor ratings on it being aired the same time as "American Idol" did.

Even if it was just visiting, it would be cause for alarm.

Guess demons enjoy the Second Amendment a bit too much.
What cruel God would allow this to happen? The one in this movie.

Glad to see the advertising is honest.

They did say ANYBODY is fair game. Even man's best friend.

Must I suggest a change in locale?
