You Want Badass? You Got Badass! Beware the Mountain Devil

Every so often a couple of young filmmakers come along with no money and nothing but passion to make something really friggin’ cool and knock it out of the park. This is one of those times.

Attention, Hollywood — Below you’ll find a clip from YouTube titled Mountain Devil Prank Fails Horribly. Watch it. Take notes. Learn from it.

And readers … trust us on this one. It may seem a bit silly once it starts, but stick with it. The payoff is pretty damned insane! We want more! Much more! Thanks, we’ll wait!

The Lone Pine Mountain Devil (AKA the California Mountain Devil) is a bat-like carnivore/predator of North American folklore — the first reported sightings were in the Inyo County region of California, circa 1839.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    The plus side: The monsters are imaginative.

    The negative side: Everything else. I don’t think I can watch another blurry/home video/night vision shaky camera thing. It offends my eyes. Enough is ENOUGH.

  • Floydian Trip

    That is very cool. Is this California Mountain Devil the same thing as The Jersey Devil?

    • FireRam

      No. The Jersey Devil is quite obnoxious,has a bad attitude,still uses a can of Aqua Net in it’s hair, and is constantly chewing and cracking it’s gum. The Califormia Mountain Devil is much more laid back,and even enjoys a fruit smoothie from time to time.

        That was… so fucking funny. Good on ya, mate. :-D

        • Floydian Trip

          That was good. I’ve never heard of this Mountain Devil but The Jersey Devil is quite the bizarre myth dating back to forever.

          • FireRam

            They have made a few LOW budget movies about the Jersey Devil. I saw one. It was BAD. It’s a cool myth, someone should do a good one about it. Wait, NAH, that would be something fresh. Let’s keep reimagining,reinventing,reduxing,redesigning etc.

          • Floydian Trip

            I just want to see that one dude shoot it in the wing with a cannon.

          • Terminal

            The Jersey Devil is cool and a fun myth. I love the whole of cryptozoology. About 95 percent of it is all made up bullcrap to attract tourism to small towns, but the stories are fun to learn about. I went through a period in my adolescence where all I wanted to do was learn about the Jersey devil, the Mothman, The Chupacabra, Big Foot, etc. It’s fun stuff.

            Yep, and LochNess “Nessie”. Oh to be young again, I too wanted (thought at times) them to all be real!!

          • Floydian Trip

            I still believe in the Lochness Monster. I mentioned before that before Desert Shield came about I had orders to go to Holy Loch Scotland. I was planning on spending all my spare time at Loch Ness with my trusty camera. I wanted to hold onto its neck and have it drag me down to murky depths and through the crevices out to the ocean. That would have been awesome!

          • Terminal

            Nessie, Bigfoot, the Jersey Devil, The Mothman, Chupacabra, it’s all myths and tourist fodder. These small towns and countries thrive on these myths to garner franchising and merchandising. Until there is actual solid proof that doesn’t amount to hysteria, and heresy, it’s all just stories.

            FUN stories, but stories.

  • FireRam

    These are entertaining…to a point. They have some cool/funny stuff out there but once you watch a couple the (insert word I’m drawing a blank) wears off. The creatures on this one were really cool!! Nice find DC!

    Here is another good one horror related. I say that because it involves aliens. Maybe I’m reaching. This is the first one I ever saw. I thought to myself when I first saw the creature in the bedroom “Damn that looks real”!

      That’s kind of creepy, but it quickly evaporates when Chad beats the crap out of that alien.

  • DavidFullam

    Certainly had very interesting monsters.

  • Gus Bjork

    Holy Moley! That was great!

  • The Lurker In The Shadows

    Looks like this is one of many short videos made by ‘Chad, Matt and Rob’. Some funny stuff there; http://www.chadmattandrob.com/

  • Terminal

    Is this a viral for an upcoming movie? And if so CAN I SEE IT NOW?!

    • Uncle Creepy

      No idea, man. We’re digging though. All I can say is wow.

      • Terminal

        Wow indeed, man. It was quite fucking excellent.
