  • Complete Monster: Edward Scarka was a depraved murderer who killed many women, taking their hands as trophies. Upon the escape of his final victim, Scarka was killed by the police, but his soul possesses a young boy named Miles Blume. Slowly taking over, Scarka kills the family dog, completely erases Miles's soul from the body, and stabs Miles's father to send him into a coma. Hunting down his one escaped victim Margaret, Scarka butchers her and plays innocent so Miles's mother Sarah will be shot by a good Samaritan, ending as Scarka continues to behave as a young boy, intending to continue his killing spree where none will ever suspect him.
