“A crooked monster for a crooked movie”

Films: The Crooked Man (2016)

Alias: None

Type: Mystical

Location: Civilized Area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: If there's anything that was truly memorable about "The Conjuring 2", it was the shambling horror that was the Crooked Man. So naturally, at least someone else opted to make a whole movie about their version. And while it's a far cry from the one we like, it has its own quirks.

History: If you dare say out loud a certain rhyme pertaining to a demon known as the Crooked Man, then it will come, and it will kill anyone who happened to be in the same room with you, one by one. A girl did this when she was a kid, and everyone blamed her for the murder that ensued. Now, the Cooked Man is back to finish what it started, hunting down all the rest who were there on that fateful day. Only by confronting the Crooked Man in his crooked house do they have any chance of survival.

Notable Kills: He leaves almost all of his victims in a disjointed bloody heap.

Final Fate: After being distracted long enough by a fight and a special music box, the Crooked Man finds himself disintegrated by the sunlight, and after he's trapped in the box, his house disappears as well. However, it is later shown that his spirit found its way into a website, that other kids have found...

Powers/Abilities: Omnipotence, immortality, and the ability to break all your bones and leave you crooked and dead.

Weakness: Sunlight, and the sound of a music box that presumably contained his soul in the first place.

Scariness Factor: 3.5-The Crooked Man here may not have the best effects, but the execution makes up for it. Constantly distorting and looking ugly as sin, the Crooked Man will have you looking like a doodle on the floor by the time he's done tormenting and screaming at you.

Trivia: -The Crooked Man was played by Dmitrious Bistrevsky, a man mostly known for as a stunt-man and circus performer.

-All versions of the Crooked Man are derived from a rather harmless nursery rhyme that simply describes the being as a regular man living in a place full of crooked stuff.
