Skeleton Man is a 2004 sci-fi/horror movie starring Casper Van Dien and Michael Rooker as military commandos of an elite Special Ops squad who are assigned to eliminate a Grim-Reaper-style serial killer who has taken out several soldiers. The team soon discovers that they are being stalked by the titular "Skeleton Man". Owing more than a few elements from the 1987 film Predator, Skeleton Man first aired in the US on March 1, 2004 on the then SciFi Channel.

The following weapons were used in the film Skeleton Man:



Colt M16

Security personnel in the first plant assaulted by Skeleton Man use M16s. Some members of the Special Forces squad also carry it.

The original M16, the first version, firing in a 20-round magazine, adopted in large numbers by the U.S. Air Force in Vietnam. This has the original 3-prong flash hider. It would later be replaced by the upgraded M16A1 - 5.56x45mm

Beretta 92F

Used by most of the Special Forces, as well as in law enforcement hands. The power plant security personnel also have it when they confront the killer.

Beretta 92F - 9x19mm. The cosmetic differences are very slight and hard to see between this gun and the newer 92FS. Most of the changes are the inner workings of the gun.

Colt M1911A1

Pre-War Colt M1911A1 - Commercial Model known as the "Colt Government Model" - .45 ACP. This has a deep Colt factory blued finish, common for commercial variants before and after the war.

M67 Hand Grenade

Towards the climax, Leary booby traps certain passageways in the power plant with M67 grenades to halt Skeleton Man's advance. The device is also seen earlier when he fashions a landmine.

The grenades are seen at the right. The blue color gives it away that these are inert training grenades.
