"Therapy for slashers"

Films: Nightmare (1981)

Alias: None

Type: Natural

Location: Civilized area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: It's never easy for rehabilitated criminals to get back on track. But honesty, if a second chance comes your way, don't waste it like poor George Tatum did.

History: Long ago in George's childhood, he bore witness to his dad engaging in furious sex with his mom. In response, he killed them both, and only years later was he released from the institution following a string of murders. Despite apparently being cured, he has flashbacks frequently, and his heading to see his ex-wife, for all the good that implies.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: George threatens his own son and his friends, but ends up getting shot by said son several times. Oh, and his son is showing a few sociopathic tendencies as well...

Powers/Abilities: None

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 3-A traditional slasher, though it speaks volumes that despite rehab, he never got over his past trauma. It just goes to show you that for all the science in the world, murder will leave permanent scars on the brain.

Trivia: -This film was inspired by real life cases of psychopaths being changed radically by intense drug medication.

-Because this was one of the 72 films to be dubbed a "video nasty", the distributer actually got put in jail for a while.

She just figured out how this guy sees women.

Abstract art. It's even for murderers.

He's smiling, sorta. Never a good sign.

Not even a mask can hide the sins that crawl underneath your skin.
