"This show's a hoot"

Films: Stage Fright (1987)

Alias: The Night Owl

Type: Natural

Location: Haunted home

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: For once, the major screw up for this play isn't some jealous actor, but rather a stowaway who had no place on the stage. It just so happened that that play was all about a crafty serial killer, and he fit the bill perfectly.

History: Irving Wallace was a crook locked up in an asylum until he planned his great escape. When that succeeded, he found himself trailing some young actors prepping for a play about the Night Owl, a deadly murderer. Donning the mask of a barn owl, Wallace began to kill the actors one by one.

Notable Kills: Tears a girl in half after a bloody tug-o-war.

Final Fate: Even after Wallace is cast off a catwalk and set on fire, it takes a bullet between the unmasked eyes to do him in. Even then, he gets a smirk out of the deal.

Powers/Abilities: Extreme durability.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 4-Wallace's horrid capacity for violence is already an unsettling thing, but then there's his choice of attire. That dead-eyed owl mask will haunt your dreams.

Trivia: -One screening of this film had fans chucking white feathers at the screen, as they number by the bucketload in the film's climax.

-The killer's final smirk was done as a homage to the slasher cliché of the killer never quite dying at the end.

Under the bird's eye, the show MUST go on.

Well, the title's alliterative at least.

Believe it or not, this is how it was ACTUALLY supposed to go down.
The Soul Aquarium was a huge failure on account of this.

A golden knife! How very rare.

"1 scene?! THAT'S IT?!"
Such a serene image of future bloodshed.

Bear or Owl? Hard to tell by the hand.

"Do the clowns always cry...when they pull up the paper sky?"

Even murderers need friends.
