If you want to see some fucked up shit, look to the Aztecs. They had some crazy awesome rituals for gods and goddesses which were full of torture, killing, cannibalism, and lighting a fire in the hollowed out chest of their victims. Something about being murderous and vile just hits me in the tender bits. As you might imagine, they’re going to have a slew of creatures that will murder you in creative ways.
For those that enjoy the anthropomorphized versions of monkeys and dogs, the Ahuizotyl is a creature worthy of your notice. This Aztec creature is like a small dog with little pointed ears, has a rubbery smooth black body and tail with a human-looking hand at the end. This creature also has humanesque hands for its front paws, more akin to a monkey’s, with regular paws in the rear. It dwells in deep springs or water-filled caverns, and any who enter its domain will be dragged to the depths. Whenever it leaves the water, its hair clumps into spikes, much like how a beaver’s fur reacts.
Once you’ve been nabbed and drowned, the Ahuizotyl will gouge out your eyes, pull out your nails, and rip out your teeth for a snack. The skin of its victims are completely unblemished and uninjured, and the body as a whole will exit the water slippery-wet. When it hasn’t had prey in a while it will cry like a child to lure people close enough to be dragged into the water. You can imagine it would spend any first date noticing what lovely eyes you have.
While it is said that Slenderman came from an Internet meme, something is only real if you believe it is, and the maiming of a young girl has already occurred in its name. It is certainly much more of an agent of chaos than you’d think, whether or not its realness has merit to you. The Marble Hornets video series did a decent enough job capturing its abilities, but what those videos showcase are but a small part of what it can do. This tall, gangly creature appears humanoid in nature, but is faceless, and is always wearing a black suit. Time is irrelevant to this creature, so it must’ve just found this apparel from one time period particularly appealing.
This baddie loves to stalk, abduct, and traumatize people, particularly children, whom it follows throughout their entire life. Whether day or night, no one is safe, and it spreads as a sort of virus to all that see or learn of it. It is said that this creature can use proxies as well, which are people turned mad under Slenderman’s influence, and will kill or maim at its will. Whether it has arms outstretched wide or tentacles coming out in all directions, know that if you see it, you’re probably fucked, and not in the fun way.
There is an interesting dynamic between electronics, photos, and videos that have captured ole Slendy. He can pop in and out of frame, and can basically see you whenever you see it. Looking at it in video is like staring it in the face and inviting it over. You can imagine that having a quick tumble in the hay with this monster would be lots of teasing and an eventual, overwhelming overture. Maybe the proxies join in for an orgy, who knows? Whether or not you end up alive is really up to its mood.
