“The setup is both intriguing and scary, with a team of epidemiologists from the CDC and the Army getting called to Arctic Biosystems, an Umbrella Corp.-like facility near Greenland. The mysterious company Ilaria set the place up there to be far from the distractions of civilization — and, incidentally, from government regulation too.”
The SHADOWMAN, also known as a shadow figure, shadow being, or black mass is a malevolent paranormal entity that has been referenced throughout history in religious texts, legends, and first hand accounts. They are described as being darker than “black,” so that their silhouette can been seen even in total darkness. They are often described with small red eyes, and can be either dark, whispy or appear as full blown silhouettes in the shape of a human.
Many believe that these creatures often appear and are sighted where there is a great deal of stress, tragedy, or grief. What most experts can agree on is that they are NOT ghosts, and lean more towards the negative side of the spectrum. Unlike many paranormal entities, the shadow people are aware of the presence of the living and seem intent on making us feel frightened and uncomfortable, and some believe that they feed off the energy of the living. More often than not, these beings are intent on watching their victims only, but there have been reports of them attacking.
One infamous reference to shadow people comes from the Villisca Axe Murder Case of 1912. During his confession, Reverend Lyn George Jacklin Kelly (a traveling Presbyterian minister) said that he had awakened from his sleep hearing “windmills” in his head. Restless, he had decided to go out for a walk eventually ending up in front of the Moore residence. It was here that he said that he encountered the shadowman. Kelly claimed that the figure led him to an axe in the Moore’s barn. Later that night he would use this axe to brutally murder the entire Moore family and two neighbor girls that had stayed with the Moore’s that night.
Before going to trial he recanted this “confession.”
