Films: Crypsis (2019)

Alias: None

Type: Natural

Location: Forest

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: So, you somehow convinced all your buddies that it would be a totally good idea to spend some time on a deserted island. That ALSO happens to have a horrific urban legend living on it. We're just letting you know that when you're finished, we'll leave the Darwin Award on your doorstep as a consolation prize.

History: Somewhere on an isolated place known as Harbor Island, there are tales of a monstrous predator known as the Crypsis. It emits haunting roars, is said to look humanoid, and can track people down based on the faintest sounds. Naturally, some folks take this as a challenge, and head to the island to disprove its existence. But apparently, the stories of people not returning from the island didn't clue them in that something is lurking, watching, and waiting...

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: After just about everyone turns on one another, the last person to survive the scuffle is grabbed and neck-snapped by the Crypsis before he can escape. The boat makes it to the mainland, and it is ambiguous as to whether more will try to come to the island or not.

Powers/Abilities: Superb hearing, great strength.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 4-While we don't see it very often, we aren't sure if you'd want to encounter anything as creepy as the Crypsis. When you see it fully, it looks like some kind of naked old man with the aesthetics of a feral goblin. Combine that with some loud roars and a killer instinct, and you have a ghoulish being indeed.

Trivia: -As the film helpfully lets everyone know, Crypsis is named after the ability to go completely undetected by both predator and prey. This is often achieved through things like camouflage.

-The Crypsis was played by David Racki. It is his only role, as of this writing.
