Films: The Wizard of Gore (1970)

Alias: None

Type: Mystical

Location: Civilized area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: So that rabbit-in-a-hat trick isn't working out so hot, huh? Well, why not give the audience what they want? Oh, wait, this is Herschell-Gordon-Lewis land, I wouldn't take audience recommendations.

History: Montag the Magnificent was a rather popular stage wizard known for his acts of horrid sadism and slaughter, only for his mainly female victims to appear just fine later. But recently, his "volunteers" have been turning up dead much later. Just what is Montag doing that lets him get away with murder?

Notable Kills: Many, among them drilling someone through the torso with a press and sword through the mouth.

Final Fate: Montag attempts to broadcast one of his killings (via fiery demise) on live T.V., but he's pushed into the fire instead. But wait! He’s been using a different body and proceeds to disembowel the woman tracking him. BUT WAIT! The woman comes alive to taunt him about how he's stuck in an illusion, and we're transported back to the beginning. Apparently, Montag's actually trapped in a Hellish time loop in which he can only lose again and again…

Powers/Abilities: Hypnosis across any radius and shapeshifting.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 3.5-The only thing that makes this horribly violent psycho less scary is that he's in a Hell his sadism created, and presumably dead because of it. But man, does this guy have a thing for theatrics and making us sick or what?!

Trivia: -According to Lewis, almost all of the gore was accomplished through two sheep carcasses soaked in pine-sol.

-Montag's actor, Ray Sager, was a replacement chosen at the last minute after the previous lead dropped out.

For the love of God, don't try to test the validity of the tagline.
Easy to say, as Leatherface hasn't buzzed his way in yet.
