"Television rules the nation"

Films: Shocker (1989)

Alias: None

Type: Mystical

Location: Civilized area/Eldritch location

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Wes just seems to really like those villains who can go in and out of any place at any time. That, and villains with a really sick sense of humor.

History: Horace Pinker, former television repairman, made his living murdering anyone and evading the police at every occasion. Oh, and unbeknownst to anyone, he made a deal with Satan so that the electric chair would only grant him special powers. That got put into play when his long-lost son got him arrested and put on death row. After being electrocuted, Pinker became pure electricity, and infested mainly TV sets to kill more folks.

Notable Kills: Put that remote down, folks. It won't be pretty otherwise.

Final Fate: After killing off most energy sources, the heroes manage to trap Pinker in a defunct TV set. Despite the killer's maddened pleas, his son makes him stay there for all eternity.

Powers/Abilities: As electricity, he can possess any electronic device and warp their reality.

Weakness: If there are no energy sources, he will remain stuck.

Scariness Factor: 4.5-Even as a human, this depraved excuse for a being would have been worthy of this site for sheer bloodlust. To give you an idea, his limp came from his son shooting at him in an effort to keep his mom from being killed. And that's before the freaky electric powers come in.

Trivia: -Pinker was played by Mitch Pileggi, who also played as Walker Skinner, a recurring main character in "The X Files".

-The heavy metal band, Megadeath, covered Alice Cooper's "No More Mr. Nice Guy" just for this film, based on Pinker's final words before electrocution.
