2Freddy Kruger (Nightmare On Elm Street series)

It is amazing Freddy is not number one for many reasons. No one can be like Freddy. Freddy can kill Jason in his dreams. Quote about Jason by Robert/Freddy: "He's big, he's dumb, he's slow, he's stupid, and he ain't got no style! ".

Jason is boring. He can't talk, he's not smart, he's ugly, I CAN GO ON. Freddy is smart, kills better, and Freddy can talk. And is just better overall.

Freddy is more creative than Jason. Jason's a Myers clone most of the time. Not always, but mostly.

He is eternal! He'll always finds a way to come back!

4Michael Myers (Halloween series)Michael Myers is a character from the Halloween series of slasher films. He first appears in John Carpenter's Halloween as a young boy who murders his older sister, then fifteen years later returns home to murder more teenagers.

Michael Myers was the go-by example for most of the 1980's slasher films. Some of his characteristics would be copied by other franchises, most notably 'Friday the 13th'. As said by Dr. Samuel Loomis, "hell will not except Michael Myers". Myers was also described by Loomis as "pure evil" and "evil in the purest form". The best description of myers in my opinion was said in the 2007 remake of Halloween, by Malcom McDowell's version of Dr. Loomis. "In these eyes, one finds only darkness. They will decieve you. They will destroy you. These eyes are the eyes of a psychopath." But Myers was more than just a crazed serial killer, he was an unstoppable, and indestructible dark force. There is no human element in Michael Myers. No reason. No sense of right or wrong. No good or bad. Most slasher villains have some sort of physical imperfection. Severe burns, physical deformities, etc. But not in this case. Scary doesn't have to be physical. What ever was going on in the mind of Michael Myers ...more

He's the personification of pure evil. Without him, there is no Jason Voorhees, because the slasher formula wouldn't exist.

it would definatley be between michael myers and jason vorhees - clerkatron

Michael is smart and way more cooler and it really just started with him

6Leatherface (Texas Chainsaw Massacre series)

Leatherface is a horrifying character. His obedience to his older and more sadistic siblings make him more terrifying because that puts him in the role of a powerful and hulking enforcer. His chief weapon of choice is a chainsaw and let's be real, there's no other weapon that can do more damage to a human body and is more horrifying.

7Candyman (Candyman series)
8Pennywise the Clown (Stephen King's It)
9Jigsaw (Saw series)

Ruthless killer, both with body count and goremanity. - lukestheman4

10Hannibal Lecter (The Silence of the Lambs)

The actor's performance was one of the best I've ever witnessed - MoldySock

The Contenders

11The Predator (Predator series)

Predator is his milion kilometers speed planet, very strongly.

12The Alien (Alien series)
13Jack Torrance (The Shining)
14The Blob (The Blob)
15Sadako Yamamura (Ringu)
16Regan (The Exorcist)

I've actually had bad dreams about Regan

17Mutants (The Hills Have Eyes)
18Dracula (Dracula)

Without a doubt, Dracula is the quintessential face of horror.
Crypts, coffins and cemeteries. A corpse that reanimates at sunset to feed. And God forbid you are bitten, you yourself are hopelessly damned.

19Three Finger and His Brothers (Wrong Turn series)
20The Creeper (Jeepers Creepers Series)
