Original PostEdit

13. BACKWOODS CANNIBAL Slasher, Killer
...But the true epicure of the terrible, to whom a new thrill of unutterable ghastliness is the chief end and justification, esteems most of all the ancient, lonely farmhouses of backwoods New England; for there the dark elements of strength, solitude, grotesqueness and ignorance combine to form the perfection of the hideous.
-H.P. Lovecraft, The Picture In The House

Rural cannibals have been popularized in the last 30 years through the films The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Hills Have Eyes, but these movies were not inventing a new mythology from scratch; rather, they were modernizing an age-old fear that stretches back to the 17th-century Scottish legend of Sawney Bean an his inbred family of murderous maneaters. This monster is intended to carry this tradition into the HorrorClix universe. The figure would depict an inbred hick in tattered coveralls, brandishing a bloody pitchfork. Look for other members of the cannibal clan in the Uncommon and Rare sections (forming a sort of homage to the REV system of yesteryear...).
