"A real page turner"

Films: I, Madman (1989)

Alias: None

Type: Mystical

Location: Civilized area/Haunted home

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: It takes a decent imagination to make a book really spring to life. Keep in mind though, that was just a metaphor. You REALLY don't want books to come to life most of the time, especially horror novella.

History: Virginia's really got her head in a nice book. Specifically, "I, Madman", a story about a psycho named Alan Kessler, who mutilates his victims and applies their physical features to himself so that he may impress a lady. Unfortunately, she unwittingly has the power to bring characters by the same author to life, and soon, Kessler is loose in the modern world, looking for fresh bodies.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: Before Kessler can claim another, Virginia summons another book monster, an emancipated werewolf, to attack him. The werewolf, in spite of being sliced in half midway through the fight, launches itself and Kessler through a window, where they dissipate into pages.

Powers/Abilities: Incredible resilience.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 4-Yowza, Kessler probably needed some extra surgery (never mind the unethical way he got it) after all! Looking like a rotting corpse, he is disturbingly eloquent still, and on top of that, his summoner was none the wiser. Who knows who she'll accidentally summon next?

Trivia: -This film was also known as "Hardcover".

-This film mostly takes ques from a short story known as "La continuidad de los parques".

If you think this is terrifying, wait until Stephenie Meyer becomes an author.

Given that paperback books keep bending and folding on me, this is a wise course of action.
Simple. Have somebody throw a corpse at you.

Wow. I haven't seen a nose that fake since Micheal Jackson.

I'm with Alan here. Nobody could be prepared for something like this.
