That shit is/was(?) popular in Norway too.
That monster thingy was called "Hufsa" basically it is some sort of personification of the word "huff"(in the "man, its cold *huff*" context). She(yes, it appears to be a she) looks so fucking dumb... but the setting she is always put in... the music, the feel, the chasing, the SILENCE and blank stare from that thing while the music roars!
It would be preferable to be chased by leatherface! Why? Because reality isn't a movie, so an axe-blow would make him STAY down, and he wouln't be able to TELEPORT like he does in the movie. Also, he is inbreed-to-point-of-extinction-stupid, so you just need to run away while SHUTTING THE FUCK UP! And then get out of Texas. He will quickly forget you and go home to play with legos.
Hufsa... Hufsa is just... *breaks into fetal pose*
Yes *sniff* childhood trauma for me too... those ince-powers are fucking scary for a little child...
