Best Horror Movie ActorsThis list looks at the talent behind the disfigured faces.
The Top Ten
Of course the people who played the biggest a-hole ever (Jason) are above the greatest actor of all time. Robert has a way of making Freddy seem a little unreal yet real, and he's got a walk, a stance, and of course he's just got style! I also did some research... The only editing they do to make Freddy's voice is that they slow it down a bit. That is Robert's voice (not his norm voice, his Freddy voice)!
He talks, he can be funny and a real madman at the same time, and he can really act. All the silent killers don't need good actors. They are being paid to walk around. Freddy in the movie was amazing, Robert Englund did a terrific job being Freddy (NOT FREDDIE, PEOPLE), and the new Nightmare movie, ugh, it sucked without Robert as Freddy!... One more thing... Is it just me, or but when Freddy's memories happen in 'Freddy's Dead', don't he look like John Deacon a little bit? Please, I am serious. At one point.
Robert Englund is by far the best actor of all time. The fact remains his talent hasn't even been approached, plus all you have to do is get a really big guy and ta-the you got Jason, no one ever can replace Robert Englund, Anyone can replace Jason.
Truly the only great horror movie actor out there. His voice wasn't done by much machinery, either, you know. I saw some interview. All he did was that voice, no editing.
The most amazing horror actor I have ever seen in my life... The first time I saw "Friday The 13th Part 7" with my friend, I loved it. After The Movie Was Over I looked over to my friend Taylor and said "I HAVE to find out who plays as Jason in this movie! Whoever played as him was amazing! " Eventually I found out it was Kane Hodder and still love his acting to this day!
Kane Hodder is so much more than a stunt man in a mask. Even in non speaking roles (Jason, Victor Crowley) he brings emotion and real character to the role with his body language. I would drink the man's bath water. No contest, Kane Hodder is the BEST horror movie actor period. - undeadplatypus
Not just an awesome actor, but an awesome Paranormal Investigator! Id say the best horror actor in the history of horror actors. He has the quality of an actual actor. Still scares me in the movies, even though I've watched them 20 times.
I grew up watchin friday the 13th & I always look forward to friday the 13th because theres a friday the 13th marathon & kane hodder is an awesome actor I've seen all his movies he always does a good job scaring the crap out me lol
Its Vincent Price and he should be number 1 - BettyBoopFan58
He is the one and only King of Horror with the greatest voice
He basically told the story of Halloween, through his pursuit of Michael Myers. Pleasance put his heart and soul into his 5 appearances.
He did good on playing Frankenstein
Yeah I really liked Richard's Jason, he was really good and made one of the best Jasons ever. His movement was great, ilove the scenes in the barn. He was very scary and menacing and some of the best kills imho were in part 3 ie Chucks death, Veras Death and Ricks Death. I think my favorite Jasona are Kand Hodder, Richard brooker, Ted White and CJ Grahm.
Richard created what we know as Jason. To be talented enough to scare us to death without saying a word... is truly the sign of an incredible actor than does not have to speak to be able to express his emotion. Sorry guys but I have followed him for years and think he is an awesome actors. Whis he would come back and do more. Richard we miss you...
Richard is the best of the Jasons. Not only was he the FIRST Jason to wear the mask, he created several of Jason's mannerisms that were seen in the later films. He was the first big man to play the role and served as the prototype that defined the character. - jason3chick
Just want to know why they didn't keep him for the rest. He was the best Jason, the later ones just tried to copy Richards portrayl of Jason, and didn't make it...
Doug Bradley's portrayal of Clive Barker's Lead Cenobite Pinhead was both monstrous and disturbing. Combined with Clive Barker's sadomasochistic flair, the movie came to life painted on a backdrop of lust, torture, and above all else: Superb Acting. Bradley's performance reached out and took your hand, only to immediately yank it off and beat you across the face with it. A truly iconic master of his character who, armed with a sharp wit and a sharper filleting knife can really make you cringe in fear.
The great thing with Pinhead is that he didn't even have to harm you... he psyches you out just from his appearance and voice. He also had that Lovecraftian sense about him.
He really should be higher... at least he spoke and was disturbing rather than a mongoloid buffoon in a mask like two others.
Linda Blair deserves the number one spot. Has anyone here ever seen the exorcist
In 10th really this man should be top with karloff, price, and Cushing these men scared the life out of many fans my favorite is the wicker man but of course he will be best remembered for Dracula. - Lesley777
Most iconic horror actor of all time
Lee, along with Karloff, Cushing and Price are in a class of their own.
This man should be in the top ten! He was the best Dracula that I ever saw!
I think that he was a good movie actor and best at playing dracula.
"Good evening. Beware of this house.
His chilling tones are unforgettable! I vant to drink your blood!
I think. She was great. In misery
Always happy to see Bruce Campbell in a game or film
He is the best!
Best actor and screamer!
Loved him in tales from the crypt where he played grimsdyke and van helsing of course. - Lesley777
I think tobin bell was a great the way he turned a smile into somthing and the creative way he kills the man devese it
He brought such emotion to any character he portrayed.
The Wolfman, Frankenstein's Monster, Son of Dracula, the Mummy, you name it!
Should be at least top 5
he's so awesome in queen of the dammed best movie ever - KORN95
He appeared in Pet Sematary Two.
He appeared in The Possession before The Walking Dead and 4 years after Supernatural.
Peter Lorre is one fantastic star in horror classics. He starred in M, Mad Love, Beast with Five Fingers and other horror classics & is one of the top 10 in my opinion
His preforming in the Gremlins movies was awesome.
One of the best horror actors of all time
