Amanda Krueger was a nun working in a hospital, and was raped by over 100 psychopaths. She become pregnant with a son, who was named Freddy. Later in his life he became a murderer in Springwood notorious for killing children. The media labeled him the Springwood Slasher. He was apprehended, but later released because of a technicality. According to the original film, it was because someone didn’t sign a search warrant in the appropriate place, but according to the first episode of Freddy’s Nightmares, it was because he was not read his Miranda rights. But the parents of the children tracked him down and found him in the boiler room where he took his victims. The parents released flammable gas into the room and set him on fire, which caused his melted-like facial features.Film series eventsIn A Nightmare on Elm Street through A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child, Krueger was referred to as an urban legend. The Elm Street parents remained tight-lipped about the events of the decade before, especially now that their children were teenagers. In the closing months of 1981, the children of Springwood, in particular those teens whose parents had formed the mob that killed Krueger, began dying in peculiar ways as they slept. The parents often ignored or denied the pleas of their terrified children, who told tales of a mysterious man named Freddy who was terrorizing them in their dreams.Krueger met three notable female adversaries in the period before Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare:
Nancy Thompson (Heather Langenkamp): Nancy, whose family moved into Krueger’s old home, was the first of the Elm Street children to learn about his past and the first to vanquish him. Nancy returned in A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, only to be killed by Freddy, who had taken the physical form of her father as a disguise.

Kristen Parker (Patricia Arquette/Tuesday Knight): Kristen was a girl with the ability to bring people into her dreams. In A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, she, along with the last surviving “Elm Street children” battled Freddy in the dream world using self imaginative dream powers. Kristen used her natural gift of pulling others into her dream as a way for the group to battle Freddy at the same time. She was killed by Freddy in A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master by being tossed into his boiler and burnt to death.

Alice Johnson (Lisa Wilcox): Alice gained Kristen’s power and the dream powers of her friends to become the Dream Master. In A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master, Alice removed the souls Krueger gained over the years and left him powerless. A year later, Alice became pregnant and Krueger started using the dreams of her unborn child to kill again in A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child. Alice vanquished Freddy a second time with the help of Krueger’s mother, Amanda. After Krueger was contained, Alice moved away from Springwood before he escaped and caused the events in Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare.
The only male to ever be a main victim of Krueger and main protagonist of any the films, who at the end defeats Krueger, is Jesse Walsh in A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge. Here, Freddy tries to enter the real world through Jesse’s body. With the help of his girlfriend, Lisa, Jesse regains control over himself and banishes Freddy back to the dreamworld.Death:After a decade of systematically slaughtering all of the children of Springwood in their dreams, the town was shown to be under Freddy’s influence in Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare. By absorbing the souls of his victims, Freddy was now powerful enough to blur the lines between dreams and reality. The remaining adults were kept in a mass psychosis after their children had been murdered. When there was no one left to kill, Freddy sought to leave Springwood — hoping to continue his murder spree in another town full of more children. Only one person could arrange for this to happen — his daughter, Kathryn Krueger.Krueger used what was left of his supernatural powers to find his daughter, who was now an adult named “Maggie Burroughs” (Lisa Zane) and was working as a counselor to troubled teenagers in another city. Since her mother’s death, Maggie was raised by adoptive parents and had suppressed the disturbing memories of her early childhood. After catching up with Maggie, Krueger attempted to convince her to do his bidding. She proved, though, that a compulsion for murder was not hereditary and instead schemed with Doc (Yaphet Kotto), her coworker (and dream psychiatrist), to help destroy Krueger. After pulling him out of her dream and into reality, Maggie stabbed Krueger in the abdomen with his own glove and then shoved a pipe bomb into Krueger’s chest, effectively killing him and releasing the dream demons that had given him his power.

"You won’t kill me out of some misplaced sense of self-righteousness. And I won’t kill you, because you’re just too much fun. I think you and I are destined to do this forever."
―The Joker to Batman.



In The Dark Knight, The Joker is depicted as a maniacal criminal mastermind who terrorizes Gotham City and whose goal is to plunge it into anarchy. The Joker has been described as a “psychopathic, mass murdering, schizophrenic clown with zero empathy.” He was portrayed by the late Heath Ledger, in the role that won him a posthumous Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.



Psychological Profile:



"Some men aren’t looking for anything logical, like money. They can’t be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn."
―Alfred talking to Bruce Wayne about how the Joker is different from most criminals.



The Joker claimed to not be insane, but rather just “ahead of the curve”. This may have been legitimately true, in the sense that he seems to subscribe to a more morally nihilistic mindset, yet he still exhibited many symptoms of various failings of mental health. The Joker was described as having “zero empathy”, which is shown throughout as being true. (This led him also to doubt how deep human morality really runs, as he once said, “These people. When the chips are down; when everything has gone completely to hell, they’ll eat each other”.) When Batman is throwing the Joker around the room and attacking him, demanding for the location of Rachel and Harvey, he takes the assault with pleasure as he laughed while being beaten by the Batman.

Similarly, when one of his minions got electrocuted in his attempt at removing Batman’s mask, he proceeded to laugh hysterically, kick the minion, then mocked him by making noises similar to that of someone being electrocuted, before spitting on him and resorting to his attempt at removing the mask himself. Along with being extremely sadistic, the Joker seems to have very little care for his own safety, such as when he was telling Batman to run him over with his Batpod, and when Batman threw him off a skyscraper building to his supposed death and he did nothing but laugh (only for Batman to save him with his grapple gun), although both could have also been due to the Joker believing that either Batman would not directly murder him or that he would still ‘win’ by provoking Batman into proving him right by forcing the Dark Knight to commit murder. Similarly, when Gambol attempts to have the Joker killed during a mob meeting, the Joker also revealed that he wired himself with explosives, having anticipated the possibility that he’d be gunned down during his meeting.

The most notable example in his utter lack of self-preservation, is when in the hospital, he gives Harvey Dent, after disfiguring him, and killing his girlfriend Rachel, a gun, and forcibly points it at his head, gambling his life on the chance that Dent would adopt his philosophy of anarchy. Though, subtly, he kept his finger in front of the hammer of the gun, which would keep it from firing.

He exhibits various symptoms of an antisocial personality, blatantly disregarding laws and social norms far beyond standard deviant behavior. The Joker also has a low level of inhibition and a relentless drive to disturb the status quo. He is driven by something other than money: he complains that the criminals of the mob are just seeking a profit and that the city deserves “a better class of criminal”, namely himself.

While The Joker does attempt to take control of the city, recruits mob henchmen, he appears to hold his philosophy of chaos higher than himself. He describes himself as merely an “agent” of chaos (in his speech to convince Harvey Dent to let go of his beliefs so he could prove in his ultimate plan that even the most noble of men can sink down to the Joker’s level).

He also doesn’t actually care about money, as evidenced by his burning of the mob’s money that he earned to recover Lau in front of the Chechen and stating that his actions aren’t “about money.” However, he did see some usefulness of money, as evidenced by the implication that he used the money he stole from Gotham National Bank to create his custom suit, acquire his equipment and weaponry, and hire others to form his own gang as the mob’s agents were simply used as a means by Joker to gain control of Gotham’s infrastructure and cripple the mobs power.

Michael Myers. (Halloween) 


  “I met him 15 years ago, I was told there was nothing left; no reason, no conscience, no understanding, and even the most rudimentary sense of life or death, of good or evil; right or wrong. I met this six year old child with this blank, pale, emotionless face, and the blackest eyes; the devil’s eyes. I spent eight years trying to reach him, and then another seven trying to keep him locked up because I realized that what was living behind that boy’s eyes was purely and simply evil.”  -  Dr. Sam Loomis.



Name: Michael Myers.
Known aliases: The Shape, The Boogeyman, Evil on Two Legs.
Gender: Male.
Location: Haddonfield, Illinois.
Known Relatives: Donald Myers. (father)
Edith Myers. (mother)

Steven Lloyd. (grand-nephew/son - only in the Producer’s cut)
John Tate. (nephew)
Remake timeline:
Deborah Myers. (mother)
Birth: October 19, 1957.
First Appearance: Halloween.



Powers and abilities:



Michael Myers possesses superhuman strength, stealth, endurance, and durability of an unknown limit. He has been shown to be able to lift a large tombstone out of the ground and carry it for long distances by hand, penetrate an adult human skull with his thumb easily, lift and hold aloft an adult human male with one arm effortlessly, and impale an adult human male through a solid wooden door with a blunt object, among other feats. He is shown to be adept at sneaking up on his unsuspecting victims from hiding spaces and in open spaces without making any noise or attracting attention. He can withstand critical injuries that would normally result in death, such as being shot multiple times in vital organs(brain and heart included), deep stab wounds and/or impalement, high voltage electrocution, or severe third degree burns over most of his body mass. He may have a healing factor that would enable him to regenerate tissue and even whole organs, such as his skin and eyes.

It is possible that powerful explosions or decapitation could kill him, as witnessed in Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers, Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, and Halloween: Resurrection, however, he avoided these situations. His superhuman abilities could be granted to him by the magical nature of the Curse of Thorn, but this is unknown.

"Explorers in the further regions of experience. Demons to some, angels to others."     ― Kirsty Cotton and Pinhead.Pinhead is the main character and villain of the Hellraiser franchise. As a human, he was Elliot Spencer, a captain in World War I. But then, ever since he solved the Lament Configuration, he was sucked into Hell and transformed into a Cenobite. Several decades later, he rose out of Hell for the first time.  Biography:Early years:    “To us God fell at Flanders too.”     ― Captain Elliot Spencer.Pinhead was originally the English-born Elliot Spencer, who was a captain in the military and participant in World War I. During the war, Elliot would witness and experience many atrocities, which would cause him to lose faith in humanity and God. Traveling to India after the war in 1921, Elliot purchased the Lament Configuration, a puzzle box and gateway to Hell created in the 18th century by a Frenchman named Phillip Lemarchand. Solving the box, Elliot had his flesh pierced by hooked chains that shot out of it and was dragged to Hell. In a chamber in the Labyrinth Hell, Elliot had a grid-like pattern carved into his head with nails subsequently being driven into intersections of the grid. At first pained by these mutilations, Elliot grows to relish in them. Losing the memories of his past life, Elliot was transformed into a Cenobite, one of a group of beings which serve the Hell god, Leviathan.Several decades after his transformation, Pinhead and his Cenobite colleagues - Chatterer, Cut-Throat and Butterball - are summoned by the hedonistic Frank Cotton, a man who had bought the Lament Configuration believing he had experienced all the world had to offer. Shortly after being summoned, Pinhead tears Frank apart with his hooked chains. With Frank now in Hell, Pinhead uses the Lament Configuration to close the gateway made to Earth. Pinhead is brought back to Earth sometime after taking Frank by the man’s niece Kirsty Cotton, who had stumbled upon the puzzle box and solved it. Stating his purpose and intent to take her to Hell, Pinhead is intrigued when Kirsty mentions Frank had escaped him and decides to give the young woman a chance to prove her claims, accepting her deal to take Frank to Hell in her place.
Following Kirsty to her parent’s house, Pinhead and his fellow Cenobites tear Frank, who had taken the skin of his brother, Larry, apart when he reveals his identity to them. With Frank back in Hell, Pinhead goes back on his deal and sets his sights on Kirsty, but is forcibly sent back to Hell with his minions when Kirsty uses the Lament Configuration against them.Hours after his encounter with Kirsty, Pinhead and his Cenobite troops are brought to Earth when a young girl named Tiffany is manipulated by her doctor Phillip Channard into solving the Lament Configuration. As his minions eagerly prepare to take Tiffany, Pinhead senses the girl did not knowingly solve the puzzle and stops his comrades before returning to Hell with them. While in Hell, Pinhead appear before Tiffany and Kirsty, who had followed them into Hell several times, taunting the two and changing the Lament Configuration into a diamond form, a miniature replica of Leviathan.Pinhead later appears before Kirsty and Tiffany while the two are fleeing from Doctor Channard, who had been changed into a Cenobite. As he prepares to kill them, Pinhead is shown a picture of his mortal form Kirsty had found among Channard’s possessions. Remembering that he was once human, Pinhead turns against Hell and attacks the Channard Cenobite when he appears to kill Kirsty and Tiffany. When the Channard Cenobite effortlessly shrugs off his hooked chains and kills his allies, Pinhead is forcibly regressed back to his human form. Despite his loss of power, Pinhead stands his ground against the Channard Cenobite and distracts him long enough for Tiffany and Kirsty to escape. While the girls flee, Pinhead has his throat slit by one of the Channard Cenobite’s bladed tentacles.Pinhead’s death results in him being separated into two halves, one good and the other evil and unbound by the laws of Hell. While his good half, embodied by Elliot Spencer, is placed in a realm of dreams, Pinhead’s evil half is trapped within the Pillar of Souls, which rises from a bloody mattress in the Channard Institute, where Pinhead attacks and kills a bewildered moving man.

Movie Bios! (Xenomorph, Alien)

(SPOILERS)

"I admire its purity."

―Ash

The Xenomorph (Latin, Internecivus raptus, “murderous, deadly” and “seized”), better known as the Alien, are an extraterrestrial, endoparasitoid species with multiple life cycles, possibly originating from the planet Proteus (also known as Xenomorph Prime). One of the most deadly of all known alien species, these creatures need a host organism in order to reproduce. The appearance of the Xenomorph varies depending on its host. The human phenotype is generally around 7–8 feet, and roughly 136.0 to 181.4 kilograms with a long, muscular tail and large, curved, oblong head. The Queen of the species is generally twice as large and possesses superior speed, strength and intelligence. The term Xenomorph is derived from the Greek words xeno (“stranger”, “alien”, and “foreigner”) and morphe (“form”, “shape”).

History:

There are no solid facts as to the origins of the Xenomorph species; instead, there are many assumptions which can not be confirmed. Based on the limited information we have, the most commonly accepted hypothesis is that they are an artificially created species, although another hypothesis says that they evolved naturally on a planet much different than our own.

The Xenomorph could be the result of genetic manipulation by Mala’kak (also known as the “Engineers” or “Space Jockeys”) as a terraforming mechanism about ten million years ago, but apparently it went horribly wrong. This theory has been twisted slightly by Prometheus, as they created an artificial subspecies, the “Deacon” or proto-alien.

Another theory is that they were actually the oldest and most technologically advanced of all races, but a sort of plague wiped out all the adults, leaving the offspring to devolve into a bestial state. The Mala’kak (Space Jockeys) may have been a close ally, possibly explaining why Xenomorph eggs were on their ships to LV-223 and LV-426.

Other ideas include that they were created by another race, perhaps the Yautja, as an “ultimate prey”. Xenomorphs are specifically said to not be indigenous to LV-426, a relatively small and unknown planet, where a large body of their eggs were found in the hold of a derelict Mala’kak/Space Jockey ship. No one knows if they were using the eggs for research or as a bio-weapon. Some say that billions of years ago, the advanced race (probably the “Space Jockeys”) controlled much of the universe with the Xenomorphs, but were wiped out by them.

Another theory touched on in the expanded universe is they were the alpha predator of their own ecosystem on a nightmarish and harsh planet, but were spread throughout the universe as a food source and a delicacy to a species with a natural immunity to their acidic blood. Without their native ecosystem to keep them in check they have since run rampant.  

One idea though, is that they were created by the Mala’kak as biological weapons against an unknown threat or a weapon to wipe out humanity, and the eggs at the derelict ship found at LV-426 was in fact a biological weapon that turned against the crew. Ridley Scott states during the Director’s Commentary on the Alien Special Edition DVD that the eggs are the cargo of the Space Jockey’s ship with the ship being a sort-of war ship designed to carry these biological weapons, or perhaps a science vessel carrying the eggs as cargo for scientific study.

Biology:

The Xenomorph physical form varies wildly depending on its life stage, hive caste, age and host, with numerous genetic varieties existing whose origins are completely unknown, as well as varieties which have been genetically engineered by other species. The typical Xenomorph starts life as an egg-like creature which, when detecting the presence of a potential host, opens up to release the second stage: a small quasi-arachnoid life form which launches itself onto the host’s face and impregnates it with an endoparasitoid larvae, which later consumes the host from within and exits the body as a vaguely worm-like organism, which then grows very quickly, developing into the adult Xenomorph.

Although several varieties exist, the adult Xenomorphs all tend to share some common traits: a vertebrate-like body, a protective exoskeleton, a long flexible tail, an elongated eyeless head, and a toothed maw which hides a retractable inner mouth. Little is known about their biology, but it is known that they eat with their “tongue mouths”, not their outer mouths. This mouth is somewhat similar to the pharyngeal jaw of a moray eel. They also bleed extremely acidic fluid which is yellowish green in color and often referred to as “blood”, although whether it’s used to transport nutrients through the body and/or serves other functions is not clear.

While the extremely acidic fluids and tremendous resilience displayed by the creature might suggest an alternative kind of biochemistry; the fact that the Xenomorph not only feeds on Humans but actually develops inside them strongly suggests that its biology is carbon-based. The ability to inherit traits from its hosts also suggests that it incorporates genetic material from them, implying that the Xenomorph either has DNA, or is able to read and convert DNA into whatever means it uses to store genetic information.

Alien. (1979)


Cast: Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt, John Hurt, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, Ian Holm and Yaphet Kotto.

Director: Ridley Scott.

Plot: The commercial vessel Nostromo receives a distress call from an unexplored planet. After searching for survivors, the crew heads home only to realize that a deadly bioform has joined them. 


Rating: 9.5/10. Personally, one of my favorite movies of all time. Everything about ”Alien” just appeals to me. From direction to acting to special effects. I highly recommend that everyone who hasn’t seen ”Alien” go rent or buy it and watch it ASAP. Its worth it.  


The atmosphere is second to none. I love the concept of being trapped somewhere (nevermind outer-space) and having to deal with it and Alien does this perfectly.


The Alien itself is well done and effective in both forms. The Face-Hugger form is extremely terrifying. If the thought of parasites creep you out enough for you to stop eating meat just incase you get tapeworm, then you may feel extremely uncomfortable when you get sight of the Face-Hugger, any attempt to remove the parasitoid makes the situation go from bad to worse, tightening its grip on the host’s neck.
Now if you’re already regretting reading that because of paranoia that the next time you go to make eggs and instead of yummy goodness coming out, you’ll end up with Mr. Face-hugger making an appearance.
But, that isn’t all… you may (definitely) end up like poor Kane.


Favorite Scene: The good ole’ chest bursting scene. The fright of seeing this…thing bursting right through this guy’s chest was a complete but fantastic shock which caught us all off-guard. First minute hes enjoying some noodles, next thing, his insides are over his fellow crew members. Admittedly, with how famous this scene is now, most people who haven’t even seen the movie will probably know of it and expect it. Nevertheless, for 1979, the scene was totally unexpected and they weren’t shy on the gore either. Wonderful!
