QUOTE (Berts @ Aug 12 2008, 10:42 PM) * they show a doctors office so we are now able to guess that the doctor is most probably bloody mary for sure....


Please god... No.

I would be VERY disapointed if the rumor is true.. I love the bloody mary story in its originality.. I would hate to see her end up being Bloody Mary...

Maybe Bloody Mary will be The Doctor's last patient.. & we can have a "Doctor Scene" where we see all the patients from the case files...

I know the argument is "But SWEET16,.. all icons have their own houses.. while this is true, HHN 15's icon house was not so based on the icon (Where Evil Hides for the noobs).. That house was based around "our fear of things that go bump in the night & all those things that had you hiding under the covers as a kid".. that had a single "attic scene" that had The Storyteller recreating that years commercial...

The big point is, it would be lazy of Uni to make The Doctor actualy be Bloody Mary.. & frankly, while I love the charecter, I dont want to see Uni drop there originality (A crazy caretaker that performed medical experements, A mad director, a pissed off terrorist with a chainsaw, a scary old woman that brings a nightmarish world from one of her books to life).. For them to rob a story from folklore, would, IMO, stain the experience a little (just a little thou)

To be honest, I'm not sure how a chainsaw-wielding maniac is that original.

Seconded. Realistically, none of their icons have been all that original. They are iconic because they are archetypes...condesced versions of fears that we all share as humans. Even The Storyteller, as she plays with our imaginations and instills visions and horrors that we cannot erase. How many times have you seen or read something that you wish you could forget? (I know I wanted brain bleach after Pet Cemetary and Hostile) She held that power over us, and, in her own way, reminded us that the horror is real, even if the presentation is pretend.

Our doctor is doing that, as well. How much more real can it be? No matter what fantastic fears her patients come to her with, she is able to fulfill those with realistic and deadly accuracy. I think she is a brilliant addition to the line of HHN icons, even thought we don't fully know her story.

They were original in the respect that they were not ripped off of an already created story... I agree with "sweet 16" They should not make her into Blood Mary because it would completely loose the whole story of the doc being an insane dr.... It just does not make sense why uni would work so hard to build an awesome character just to ruin it all... Go to the top of the page

See, I don't feel that they are original. Jack has basis in real life murderers, crazy mortician stories have been around since ancient Egypt, and the snuff film urban legends started in the 50's. The originality in their usage I can see, but not the characters themselves. In fact, the story of the insane doctor experimenting on his/her patients is nothing new, either. The previous icons were all given a slight supernatural bent to their stories (except The Director, I believe) and no one seems to think Universal did them wrong. It's all in the presentation. I think we'll all be very happy with what they do this year. It has certainly been exciting so far.

This has been stated many times and in many places on the vault forums, but I'd figure to reiterate and add my spin to it.

"Bloody Mary" has not only been used as the basis of many urban legends, it has been a nickname for many historical characters and people in the past. I believe that Universal is recreating the legend in their image with a very real, very insane doctor. In a way they could be showing you the "Real Bloody Mary". Go to the top of the page

JWFEARMAN: But... what is original? There are only, if i rememeber correctly, 12 plot line possibilities for any story. "There is nothing new under the sun" as King Solomon wrote thousands of years ago...

I don't think she'll actually become the Bloody Mary of legend. I just think her name's going to be Mary, and her nickname will be "Bloody Mary".

Totally agree.

I will reiterate that horror comes in the same form, just with new little nuances. Its fear of "monsters", fear of the dangerous situations, and fear of death. Everything in horror pretty much boils down to those three things.

Jack is not the first talking killer clown, but he's the first to have the charm of The Joker, and the personality of a Rock Star. Albert Caine was not the first experimental doctor, but he was one of the few to be based in the supernatural realm with a 1930s medical bag and top hat. He even had his own cult for awhile. Storyteller is based on ironic horror: how can a little old grandma kill me?

If you go throughout all the years, the same themes appear over and over, just in slightly new forms. Its not a knock. Its what horror is. Mad doctors, killer clowns, aliens, vampires, crazed village people, crazy people in general, cults, "Slashers", etc.

Treaky, you are indeed a genius. There are only so many themes possible in horror, and they all boil down to one thing-something that threatens our life, health, and/or safety.

Oh, and good to see you posting on the boards again. -MadcapFalcone
