“The joke's on us”

Films: The Last Laugh (2020)

Alias: None

Type: Unknown, possibly Natural

Location: Civilized Area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Comedy is where it's at, really! In these ever-troubled times, we need a good excuse to laugh every now and then. But some people just cannot let that happen. They may think they're funny in their own way, but it's hard to laugh when one's choking on their own blood...

History: The Pantages Theater is about to say hi to struggling comedian Myles Park. It's a great prospect, but there are some issues. One is that Myles can't take his medications, giving him terrifying visions of bloodshed. And what's worse is that the theater has a bit of a dark past. Back then, there was an acting couple who wowed audiences with their combined ability, but everything fell to pieces when the man cheated on his wife in favor of a rich widow. While he offered to find a way to benefit his old flame, she didn't take it well anyway, and she ruined him by killing their child and putting the corpse on display during a performance. Rumor has it that the child's ghost (or someone's ghost, it's not all that clear) still inhabits the theater as a murderer in a mask, though it could be just someone who really liked the story. Either way, Miles is having a hard time deciding what's real and what isn't.

Notable Kills: Stabs a person through the back of the throat and out the front.

Final Fate: In the end, just before his performance, Myles is stabbed in the back by the killer, who reveals his face to him. We don't see who it is, but apparently Myles finds it to be rather funny before he expires. At the very least, the short-lived comedian is fondly remembered by the masses on the internet, and the search for the killer continues...

Powers/Abilities: None.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 4-This killer's getup isn't the most terribly original one out there, but he isn't fooling around. Most of the deaths are rather graphic and drawn out, making it clear that whoever he is, whatever he is, can be described as calculating and wrathful. For all we know, he could be a vengeance-seeking spirit or a lunatic with a vision. None can say, for the moment...

Trivia: -The Pantages Theater is a real-life place that they shot this film at. It is located in Tacoma, Washington.

-Not much else to say.
