Films: Red Billabong (2016)
Height/Weight: That of an average elephant.
Summary: The Outback has a startling array of wildlife that could end you with little to no effort. But you know that most of them are just abiding by nature, and might actually leave you alone. The same can not be said for the demon that lurks in the areas best left uncharted...
History: Deep within the swampy regions of the Australian wilderness, there lies in wait the fabled Bunyip, a tribesman who disgraced his people, and was turned into a spirit-monster as punishment. The Bunyip swore from that day forward that anyone who dared enter his swamps and billabongs would be met with agonizing death. Also, he required three female servants to bring him food, which he got through hypnosis. Now, the people are threatened by his presence again.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: After a couple of his hypnotizing attempts are thwarted, the Bunyip is finally brought down through a combination of a thrown spear and some didgeridoo action. All of it sends him back to Hell. However, there is speculation that the Bunyip's spirit might still be out there.
Powers/Abilities: The Bunyip has a hypnotic gaze that can enslave people to do its bidding.
Weakness: People can be knocked out of the curse, and blocking out the noise prevents it from working. Also, conventional means hurt the Bunyip, but ritualistic rites can destroy it.
Scariness Factor: 3-The Bunyip's awful CGI would have given it a lower rating, but it has a couple things going for it. Aside from looking like a horrid ogre-like demon, his powers of mind control put him a step above other cave-dwellers. Now if only he didn't go down like a chump.
Trivia: -The Bunyip is an Aboriginal water demon whose origins remain a mystery. Some say it came from rare seal sightings, some that it is memories of ancient marsupials like the Diprotodon, and others even think that cassowary sightings are to blame.
-The most common depiction of the Bunyip is that of a furry long-necked beast, owing to the belief that seals inspired the myth. Other descriptions are close, but often veer off into downright abstract designs.
