"It REALLY Isn't Easy Being Green"

Film: The Maze (1953)

Alias: None

Type: Natural

Location: Haunted Home

Height/Weight: Slightly larger than a bulldog.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: A hedge maze, much like a corn maze, serves as either a fancy garden accessory, a source of mild amusement, or both. For poor Sir Roger MacTeam, it was all he knew. And if anyone managed to see that whole maze through, they would know why.

History: As Hollywood evolution dictates, man's embryo goes through stages that match those of different species until they reach the status of mammal. In Sir Roger Phillip MacTeam's case, he never got past the amphibian stage when he was born in the year 1750. Worse yet, he was next in line to inherit a great mansion, and due to being an amphibian (in this case a large man-toad), he would live for more than 200 years. Due to his deformities, he became a recluse and lived in the large hedge maze in the garden. His bed a bunch of seaweed and his lounging area a small pond, Roger watched as his family members took turns looking over him and keeping his pitiful existence a secret from the world at large.

Notable Kills: None

Final Fate: Eventually, one of Roger's current servant's friends encounters him in the maze. Unable to comprehend how society would treat him anymore, Roger barrels through his mansion and flings himself out the window at the top despite his servant's protests. He spends his final moments at his favorite pond to contemplate his life before being buried there.

Powers/Abilities: For a misshapen toad, Roger is rather quick on his feet.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 2.5-Sir Roger is explicitly stated to be harmless, and he indeed does look less like a threatening monster and more like a big toddler when moving. However, his uncanny amphibian looks are a bit off-putting.

Trivia: -This was the final film directed by William Cameron Menzies, who had a thing or two for the use of 3-D.

-Amphibians keep their skin watery and moist because it helps with breathing and not drying up as they are apt to do in headed areas. No wonder Roger liked the pond.

How much? More than the attempt here.
No, evil spirits don't live here. Something a bit more bizarre does.
Still not as bizarre as what DOES live here.
3-D, before it became an even more annoying fad.
