“Chat spat”

Films: Smiley (2012)

Alias: None

Type: Mystical

Location: Civilized Area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Internet urban legends are oftentimes of dubious evidence. And more times than not, they're a fad. And 'fad' is one step away from 'fade'. Such is the case of this obscure yet disturbing character.

History: There is a rumor that if anyone on a webchat site types out "I did it for the lulz" three times in a row, they'll unleash a great evil to kill the person on the other side of the chat. That evil is Smiley, a serial killer who stitched his eyes shut and tore his mouth into a permanent bloody smile. Of course, no one mentions how Smiley will kill the one that summoned them after his job is complete. Also, the legend can be just as dangerous as the killer itself...

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: It is eventually revealed that all of the murders and near-murders have been a part of an elaborate prank by several people hoping to keep the Smiley legend alive and drive an innocent to near-suicide. These awful people seem to get away with it...only for the actual Smiley to start coming after them...

Powers/Abilities: Can be anywhere at any time depending on where he's summoned.

Weakness: Just don't summon him.

Scariness Factor: 3.5-If you can look past the fact that his entire identity is based around an emoticon, Smiley is a horrific modern take on the Bloody Mary story. Summon him, and you bring upon a grizzly mutilated killer that cannot be stopped. And worse, some people thought it would be nice to emulate this monster. Sometimes the internet just really sucks, people.

Trivia: -As if its premise wasn't dated enough, some major cast members included Shane Dawson and Tobuscus. And as we all know, one is still in hot water for his edgy past and the things he may or may not have done to his cat, and the other was accused of sexual misconduct. At least Onision wasn't in this one...

-Because internet movies are apparently cursed themselves, director Michael Gallagher and all associated with him were, prior to this film's release, assaulted by a barrage of harassment campaigns by people claiming to be from 4Chan, angry that their site was brought up in it. While it's still ambiguous as to whether it was all a publicity stunt, considering it's 4Chan, we wouldn't be surprised.

I mean, with scars like that...

"You wanna know how I got these scars?"
You'll wanna punch most of their faces by the end.
"You know what? Maybe I should just horrifically merge my face and scar it instead!
