"Photo Finisher"

Films: Peeping Tom (1960)

Alias: None

Type: Natural

Location: Civilized Area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Neutral, leaning on Evil

Summary: Norman Bates had mommy issues, but it isn't always the matriarch causing the problems. In fact, that's rarely the case. Sometimes the dad is to blame, because the chances are his abuse results in heavy psychological damage for the poor kid. Just look at Mark Lewis.

History: At a young age, Mark Lewis was the unfortunate guinea-pig of his father's experiments on fear. The idiot would film his exploits as he mentally tortured the youth. And unfortunately, Mark would find that filming utter horror was pretty fun too. Except he would film himself killing prostitutes instead of malicious pranks. But he became a soft-spoken porn magazine photographer in the middle of it, so no one expects a thing.

Notable Kills: The victims get the "privilege" of seeing their demises as the camera closes in on them.

Final Fate: After the authorities put the pieces together and realize that Mark is behind the murders, he decides to end his own little murder documentary on a high note. Namely, by impaling himself with his own weapon.

Powers/Abilities: Mark's signature weapon is a blade attached to one of the tripod-legs on his camera.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 3.5-Despite his nice disposition, Mark is so damaged it's almost pitiful. Still, no one likes a stalker, especially one that lets you see yourself die at his blade.

Trivia: -Mark was played by Karlheinz Böhm, a German actor recognized for founding the "Humans for Humans" trust, which helps needy people in Ethopia.

-Serial killers recording their murders isn't an uncommon occurrence. Just ask Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, who recorded the sounds of them torturing their victims in a horrible string of events from 1963 to 1965 known as the Moors Murders. The recordings aren't public, thankfully.

The most frightening thing? Many things on this site.

All the desire in little Marky's mind can't stay in check for long.

It's a little late to take back all you did, Mark.
Some things just AREN'T meant to be witnessed.

Enter through the keyhole of madness.

Such a SPECIAL little boy...

A most awful way to die. No privacy at all.
More perverse than perverted!

Oh, and she won't be with us for very long.

Can you feel the barrier between madness and sanity breaking?

All killers, sinister or pitiful, have an excuse.

This WILL hurt.

All it takes is one bad childhood....

Do you honestly have what it takes, Mark?
