Films: Craze (1974)

Alias: None

Type: Natural

Location: Haunted home

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: The deities of the world have to govern millions of individuals. There is very little reason they should stop for the sake of one man. So what's your excuse, Mr. Mottram?

History: Neal Mottram was the owner of an antique shop with a dark secret. He has been praying to the idol of the African god, Chuku. It is his belief that if he provides enough sacrifices, particularly of the female variety, he will be rewarded with wealth and power. And he has the charisma to lure them all in.

Notable Kills: At one point, he gives an old lady a fatal heart attack by jumping at her with a particularly garish mask.

Final Fate: Near the end, Neal just completely loses his marbles, swinging an axe at the air as all of his foes confront him in his basement. He's shot several times before he decides to end it all by impaling himself on Chuku's idol as a final sacrifice.

Powers/Abilities: None

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 3-He's certainly unhinged, and his means of killing are quite creative. Still, we find it rather pitiful with how this mustachioed madman is so devoted to a god that doesn't even like sacrifices.

Trivia: -Oh yes, Chuku is not some evil African spirit. He's actually a benevolent god of creation for the Ibo people of Nigeria. In fact, he was so nice that he once considered giving humans immortality, but he had to settle with just letting them become a part of the Earth upon death.

-Neal Mottram was played by Jack Palance, who's notable to the public for winning an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in "City Slickers", and notable for us for his namesake being used for an antagonistic T-Rex in the documentary series, "Dinosaur Revolution".

At this point, nothing good comes out of black magic.

It's amazing how evil entities can make a comeback.

"What do you MEAN he's not my type?!"
Lucky statue. Look at those girls throwing themselves at him.

Congrats, evil spirit. You've lost your only fanbase.
