"Next time, pick steroids"

Films: Shivers (1975)

Alias: None

Type: Man-Made

Location: Haunted home

Height/Weight: That of average mice.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: It's amazing that these things aren't some mistake man or nature made. Someone actually went out of his way to create these sinister body snatchers.

History: Dr. Emil Hobbes, Montreal biologist and misanthrope supreme, believes that without emotions, man will be more inclined to mate and deliver itself to the desires of the flesh. So he's created a string of parasites that infect anyone with a desire to breed. But plenty are going to get hurt because of this, as the parasites also make their hosts go a bit primal.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: Eventually everyone in Hobbes' apartment is infected, and they get out of there, setting his ultimate plan in motion...

Powers/Abilities: Can turn normal folk into sex-crazed maniacs.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 4-You can barely see them, and when you do, they're already crawling into your body and making you turn on those you love. Since when did aphrodisiacs become inferior to crazy-slugs?!

Trivia: -This film was also known as "The Parasite Murders", "They Came from Within", "Frissons", and "Orgy of the Blood Parasites".

-This is the first feature film of body horror master David Cronenberg.

Apparently, they forgot to INFECT. Not KILL.
