Films: Savage Weekend (1979)
Location: Civilized area/Forest
Height/Weight: That of an average human.
Summary: "Divorce" is a pretty nasty word, regardless of the context. It isn't an invitation to murder, though, so keep the sharp things away if those thoughts cross your mind.
History: Greg Pettis was a small-time politician in New York. Things seemed nice until he got caught up in a scandal. When that happened, his wife left him to head upstate for vacation. Unable to live with his loss, Greg went insane, tracking her down to where she and her friends were. Donning a mask one of the friends bought as a joke, Greg began to carve a path of murder in his wake. Worse, most of the blame was being shifted to poor Otis, the local accused of murders he didn't commit.
Notable Kills: Killing one with a large sewing needle doesn't sound very pleasant.
Final Fate: Greg eventually reveals his identity to his wife, and intends to make her death look like an accident. However, Otis arrives just in time to gleefully shove a chainsaw into Greg's back, killing him.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 3.5-Greg is a douche. A resourceful douche, at that. Whatever he can find, he'll kill you with it. His mask could be considered a bit try-hard, but it's fairly unnerving on its own.
Trivia: -This film is often considered to be the prototype for the slasher film genre.
-This film was made under the working title, "The Killer Behind the Mask".
