"What's in a name, anyway?"

Films: The Unnamable (1988), The Unnamable 2: The Statement of Randolph Carter (1993)

Alias: Alyda Winthrop

Type: Mystical

Location: Haunted home/Civilized area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Not all of H.P. Lovecraft's tales begin with something awful coming from space. Sometimes, there's no easier route than to delve into the horrors of the occult. The demonic occult, that is.

History: Long ago, the Winthrop family added a rather demonic nut to their tree in the form of daughter Alyda. It may or may not have something to do with that pesky Necronomicon tome there, but for the moment, we have a girl whose father got her turned into a monster that ended up killing him anyway. Now she's alone in Winthrop household, but not for long. There's always a bunch of dumb teens to break in and get themselves murdered...

Notable Kills: One teen is decapitated, with his body hung over a plate to collect his blood.

Final Fate: A particularly savvy teen named Randolph Carter manages to use the cursed tome to imprison Alyda in her own home for real. However, through an insulin shot, Alyda gets separated from her demonic side, only for the beast to go on the warpath trying to get to her again. Soon, Randolph has to kill the demon again at the cost of Alyda's life.

Powers/Abilities: Possession.

Weakness: The Necronomicon has counter spells for her. Also, insulin shots make for an exorcism substitute, apparently.

Scariness Factor: 3.5-The unnamable demon stands out a bit for not only being unambiguously female, but sporting a rather wicked look. There's also that awful noise it makes, like a scream mixed with animal sounds (because that's what it was). Let it haunt you...

Trivia: -This film was based on H.P. Lovecraft's short story of the same name. The lead Randolph is also a recurring character in his stories, often considered to be Lovecraft's author avatar. Weird really, considering film Randolph here wasn't a racist downer in the slightest.

-Apparently, it took 9 hours to get the makeup for the monster done.

I can list a few name, but they're not pretty.

Who says she had to stay in that dingy home forever?
It's going to be a LOOOOONG night.

Your puppet act stinks, ma'am.

You thought she was a mindless predator? Well, there's always a need for a back-up plan for her ilk.
