"Soldier's Due"

Films: Deathdream (1974)

Alias: None

Type: Mystical

Location: Civilized area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Neutral, leaning on Evil

Summary: The loss and grief of losing one to the horrors of war. We could never know the true suffering of such. But just know, it could be worse...they could come back after the word of death.

History: Andy Brooks was a soldier in the Vietnam War, killed in action by a sniper. After his demise, he somehow came back to his home in the U.S., alive and well. That is, he was a lot more cold and distant from everyone. But during the night, he's a lot more active. In fact, he's going around taking the blood of others for his own. Turns out, something made him a being who can only survive off the blood of others.

Notable Kills: He takes the blood of another via syringe, and injects it into himself

Final Fate: After failing to get the blood of a recent target, Andy heads over to the graveyard he was to be buried in. There, he dies, having scrawled his name and date of birth/death on the tombstone. His mother takes this about as well as one would guess.

Powers/Abilities: Replenishes youth and looks via the blood of others.

Weakness: If he doesn't have enough blood, he will expire.

Scariness Factor: 4-Unlike most zombies, this one still retains his intelligence, capable of using tools and even driving. His maddened, primal zombie-face is also an unsettling sight.

Trivia: -This film was also known as "Dead of Night".

-This film was partially based on the short story, "The Monkey’s Paw", in which desires have horrible side-effects.

There shall never be a dull night after this travesty.

I haven't met any 'nam vets, but I'm sure this isn't the norm.

Before you ask, yes, he wears his sunglasses at night.
A dream that can only end in heartache.

When they raise him from the dead, he's probably going to brain-dead with that wound of his.

From the war to the comfort of home.

Undead road rage.
At least we didn't see any animals trying to eat away at-Oh, wait.

Two-Face's lesser known protege, War-Face.

Woman, I'd let go of your grief at this point.
