Appears in: Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer (2008)
Scariest moment: The transformation of Professor Gordon Crowley (Robert Englund) into the obese, repulsive demon, during which tentacles spring out of his back and Crowley's face inflates like a fleshy balloon.
Making no qualms about his love for Sam Raimi's Evil Dead films, Canadian director Jon Knautz emerged on the horror scene in 2008 with the underrated horror-comedy Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer. The title character, played by Trevor Matthews, is Knautz's version of Bruce Campbell's Ash, except, here, blue-collar everyman Brooks slays demons in various places, not just a cabin in the woods.
And, boy, do those demons look really damn cool. Packed with top-notch makeup effects, the independently made Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer looks like a big-budgeted Hollywood production. Most impressive of all is the Crowley Demon, which starts off as a malicious college professor (Freddy Krueger himself, actor Robert Englund) and, through meddling with an evil force, morphs into that attractive thing seen above.
