“The fog of the mind”

Films: After (2012)

Alias: None

Type: Mystical

Location: Eldritch Location/Civilized Area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: The things we did in the past usually stay in the past. Both for better or for worse. But mostly, it's for the best. Because chances are they'll come back to bite you. In this case, literally.

History: This concerns the life of a woman and a man linked to one another by a rather contrived black fog that embodies both of their pasts. For the most part, it's all a matter of getting out and returning to the real world. But there's trouble in there. Aside from the psychological hassle, the woman's memory of writing a play about a monster has manifested into the form of a horrid chained beast that will not remained imprisoned for long...

Notable Kills: None.

Final Fate: After confronting its unwilling creator in one of her worst memories, the monster is finally killed when it accidentally impales itself on the woman's weapon. Its body turns out to have a key out of this nightmare.

Powers/Abilities: None.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 4-The CGI can get a bit hokey at times, but you got to admire the design of this horrible thing. Looking like some kind of shark-ogre, this hunched being may have not been the worst memory in that lady's mind, but you have to admire its persistence. Though it does kind of look like one of those internet meme creatures when it closes its mouth.

Trivia: -One of the most tumultuous parts of doing this film was the carnival scene. As in, it was near freezing-level temperature and wind gusts that brought everyone down.

-This film was directed by Ryan Whitaker, whose career is almost built entirely on shorts.
