Best Horror Villains

What are the top best horror movie villains, that make the silver screen red with blood?

The Top TenXW

1Freddy KruegerFred "Freddy" Krueger is the main antagonist of the A Nightmare on Elm Street film series. He first appeared in Wes Craven's A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984).

Any of you who put Jason, let's say this. Freddy talks, wants to kill you and scares you by being scary-funny, while Jason walks around with a machete and is so depressed he glues a hockey mask to his face (that says a lot). And Jason doesn't talk. Jason = fail. To me, anyway.

MY TOP 3? Well, I'd put it in this order. Each well deserves their position on the list. Top person is the best.

Freddy Krueger

Michael Myers

Hannibal Lecter

Freddy Krueger Rules! He is totally tied with Michael or better!

The best is Krueger.

2Micheal Myers

Comes up right after Freddy for me. Mikey was my fave, always got the second place spot. Very close though. Still, I have to say Freddy is better, as he is immortal in the dreamland, and no one, sadly not even Mikey here, can avoid sleep.

I know most of your out there think that Freddy is the main, but Michael is voted by many FAR the most scary.


He's the awesomest. I couldn't go to camp a month after I watched him.

Ed gein was never represented as somebody scarier than this skin wearer.


Personally, the COOLEST horror movie character!

6Norman BatesNorman Bates is a character created by writer Robert Bloch as the main character in his novel Psycho, and portrayed by Anthony Perkins as the primary antagonist of the 1960 film of the same name directed by Alfred Hitchcock and its sequels.

Every time he was on camera, he was the center of attention. Anthony Perkins was great in this role.

7Jack Torrance

SO creepy. I've never had a fear of clowns until I saw him.

9ChuckyCharles Lee Ray is a fictional character and the titular antagonist of the Child's Play horror film series.

Come on, people, face the facts; he's so creepy!

10Hannibal the Cannibal

Hannibal the Cannibal is one of the scariest creeps in any movie. His voice, his eyes, and his impression on us all should make him number one.

Not in top 3? If you've seen silence of the lambs then you have to put this guy up there. A cencus taker once tried to test him. He ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chanti. Tss

The Contenders

11Firefly Family

Very creepy. I'm not sure they belong in fourth, more fifth though.


What? He's #12? He should be #2! (Freddy Krueger is #1)

13Angela Baker

VERY close ties. I mean very.

14Mark Hoffman
15The Tall Man

I have to read the book to understand the movie because it seemed silly Average

20Carrie White

I hate bullies and I think Carrie did the right thing
