The Twitchers are an all encompassing term for the hallucinogenic apparitions in Afraid of Monsters that David Leatherhoff experiences. They appear highly zombie like, often contorting their limbs to impossible degrees. They are highly intelligent and incredibly fast. Throughout the events of Afraid of Monsters, David encounters many variants, the most common being the zombie like Twitchers. If the player is not careful they may follow the path of one of the "bad" endings in which the Twitchers are revealed to be regular people that David has murdered in his drug addeled haze. The Twitchers make a return for Cry of Fear, another mod by Andreas Ronnberg, although they are not as common.
