"Before the Misery"

Films: The Fan (1981)

Alias: None

Type: Natural

Location: Civilized area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: You ever tire of those so-called "fans" who follow their idols with all the patience and persistence of a serial killer? Well, they actually do indeed exist, and Douglas here would like to show you how it's done...

History: A massive fan of famous actress Sally Ross, Douglas Breen is a record salesman whose entire world has revolved around that one woman. But years of being ignored by her have eaten away at his sanity, and now he's making it his mission to seek her out and kill her for her "ignorance".

Notable Kills: That threatening letter he left on the dead maid really needs to be seen to be believed. It's short, but it...well, gets the point across, we guess.

Final Fate: After chasing and beating Sally, the actress disarms him by reminding him how much of a pathetic waste he is. He is then stabbed in the neck by her, and he collapses dead.

Powers/Abilities: None

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 3.5-Yes, Doug here is indeed pathetic in his quest for self-serving love, but damn, is he a persistent little bug. If you just so happen to be in his way, you will die. Not very cleanly, in fact.

Trivia: -Douglas was played by Michael Biehn, who would go on to star mainly as military men in sci-fi films, especially ones by James Cameron.

-This film came at an unfortunate time when various celebrities fell prey to all kinds of creepy acts from their respective fandoms, including stalking and even murder. Many cited the problems that celebrities like Jodie Foster and Larry Hagman faced from their fans, though others believe that the film's release was simply a coincidence.
