“Struck gold and death”

Films: Curse of the Forty-Niner (2002)

Alias: Jerimiah Stone

Type: Mystical

Location: Cave/Forest/Civilized Area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Gold makes fools of us all, like a lot of things, really. But like any form of greed, it leads to ruin. It affected this homicidal miner in the past, and now, it's come to terrify the present.

History: Back in the 19th century, in Suttersville, Pennsylvania (yes, with two t's), Jerimiah Stone was a horrible outlaw miner who raped and killed a priest's daughter. After getting shot up for his crimes, he sold his soul to Satan to achieve immortality, and have his soul forever connected to a large cache of gold down below. As one might guess, there are those who would like to get their hands on that gold. And every time they do, Stone rises from the dead to destroy them all.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: After getting beaten up a bit by the survivors, Stone is set on fire and blown up by dynamite, taking the entire mine with it. However, the moment someone innocuously picks up a satchel of gold nearby, Stone bursts out of the rubble to continue his rampage.

Powers/Abilities: Invincibility, immortality, and lots of proficiency with a pickaxe.

Weakness: Anything conventional can slow him down.

Scariness Factor: 4-An invincible miner who was a monster in life as he is in death. Not the best thing to come across. His rotted appearance befits his capacity for violence. Just do yourself a favor and don't even think about touching that gold.

Trivia: -This film was also known as "Miner's Massacre".

-Stone was played by Vernon Wells, who was known for playing as the fantastically unhinged and hammy Bennett from "Commando".
