Attack of the killer Gnome!

A TOWN in South America is living in fear after several sightings of a 'creepy gnome' that locals claim stalks the streets at night.

The midget - which wears a pointy hat and has a distinctive sideways walk - was caught on video last week by a terrified group of youngsters.



Teenager Jose Alvarez - who filmed the gnome - yesterday told national newspaper El Tribuno that they caught the creature while larking about in their hometown of General Guemes, in the province of Salta, Argentina.

He said: “We were chatting about our last fishing trip. It was one in the morning.

“I began to film a bit with my mobile phone while the others were chatting and joking.

"Suddenly we heard something - a weird noise as if someone was throwing stones.

"We looked to one side and saw that the grass was moving. To begin with we thought it was a dog but when we saw this gnome-like figure begin to emerge we were really afraid."

Jose added that other locals had come forward to say they had spotted the gnome.

He said: “This is no joke. We are still afraid to go out - just like everyone else in the neighbourhood now.

"One of my friends was so scared after seeing that thing that we had to take him to the hospital.”

-Me thinks it's just a midget having some fun.

Okay, that was pretty creepy.

All we need is one of those kids to walk around the forest shouting, "Senior Josh! Senior Josh! Donde esta, hombre?"

Someone else had said it reminded him of when the alien walked across the home video in Signs.

They have every right to be afraid.

I'd only be worried if the "gnome" hopped onto a fox and rode away into the night while yelling about trolls in a very Tom Bosley-esque voice.

Video still works for me.

If I've learned anything from Captain Disillusion, it's that any video that abruptly ends right when the "mysterious thing" is happening, is fake. Why would you stop filming right when it gets good?
