Best Horror Movie Characters
Jason is my favorite slasher villain/character. He's strong, immortal and totally badass! And while he does have the highest body count in horror, he's not all bad. He loved his mother and it was after her death that he came back and started killing to avenge her. And considering he was bullied and drowned as a child, he's actually a killer you can sympathize with. He's both badass and unique at the same time.
Jason's shows no mercy only to his mother that he'll listen to and mikes a puss puss not in originals though remakes suck especially number 2 like unicorns? What is mike a two yr old? At least Jason's mother encourages him to kill for her after her head being beheaded
Hhe's definitely stronger than Michael plus he's already dead so a stab wound won't affect the awesomeness of his blade chopping off some dudes head. I'm with Jason on this one.
Did you people not watch Freddy vs. Jason? Where Freddy kicked Jason's ass majority of the movie? It took Jason and a group of kids to stop Freddy. Jason sucks.
Reasons Michael is the best Horror villain: 1) He hasn't been killed (unlike Jason or Freddy), 2) It didn't take a traumatic event or even a misguided emotional state for him to start killing. One day he just started killing (unlike Jason, Hannibal or Norman Bates). 3) He stalks and kills people like a sociopath, totally disconnected from emotion and almost playful and curious like each murder is a sort of experiment. 4) He spent most of his childhood staring at a wall and yet somehow learned to drive a car. 5) Strength, stealth, intelligence and fear. He is simply the total package. 6) It's a William Shatner mask!
He is the strongest horror character. He is intelligent, he can teleport, you cam chop him in 10000000 million parts if you want and the curse will bring him back, he has supernatural strenght, he can easily kill jason and is really creepy that moment when he suddenly appears behind you and slits your throat... He can crush your head or even rip it off, can use any kind of melee weapons you give him,... The strongest horror character there is there was and there will ever be...
First of all the remakes are complete garbage, trash, crap, and they are the worse. In the original, he is the best! He is super intimidating, he is pure evil, he is a supernatural monster, and he is mysterious! Jason is a mama's boy and he is literally his mom's pet and Freddy Kruger just has too much personality and sadistic humor, Michael is the best!
Michael myers is one of those people who never give up and jason is the same really. Freddy is amazing as well but his movies arnt as violent as jasons and Michael. I was gonna vote jason but micheals story's are much better. They both seem to not be immormal but micheals got that scary music like something bads gonna happen and his movie in 1978 the first one is rated 7.5 and his the rating X. Friday the 13th is made in 1980 and is an x but has the rating 6.5
Fred Krueger is truly evil. Both Michael and Jason has shown weakness as to where Freddy has never. Freddy simply just does not care, he killed his wife, attempted to kill has daughter and had a dire hatred for his mother. Michael showed weakness for his niece in Halloween 5 when he took of his mask for her and even shed a tear. Jason is just a big mama's boy and is scared of water lol. Chucky the doll is harder than Jason.
I believe he is the best. And Robert Englund is the only Freddy. And I love them both, or I could just say I love Robert. So confusing. But he is the greatest because he is a joker and a really scary killer and will get you in your dreams-- something unavoidable as I have said/
The thing I really loved about Nightmare on Elm Street was the fact it was an original concept of what would happen if your dreams could somehow become real! Imagine this homicidal maniac trying to kill you in those dreams!
Freddy is easily the most popular/best of all these characters. But he's not the scariest since he makes jokes and you want to see him win...But if you base this on only the first movie, then he's the most terrorizing.
Ok so true story! Yesterday I got a Chucky doll and he wouldn't stop talking so my grandpa shut him "off" that's when I realized he kept going so I looked and noticed that my grandpa switched it from off to on which means Chucky was still talking while he was off! (He doesn't do that now but I do hear stuff move in the same room he is and plus Chucky is the best! :)
To be honest, he started off with great potential but (While I really don't mind this) his arc turned into a child vs doll thing. I really loved him in Child's Play 1 where he acted creepy and horrific. I loved him in Curse of Chucky where he reverted back to his creepy, sadistic ways.
I haven't seen any of the child's play films but the fact the I found out a real life serial killer put his soul into chucky the "good guy" doll actually makes what I know about it less scary.
Chuck is one of the world's scariest horror movie icons he makes you not want to have a stuffed animal he is just that scary.That is the only reason I need as proof as why he should be number 1 heck he should have numbers 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 and 10 as well.
I can't call him a killer or psychopath...he just builds all sorts of devices to teach bad people a lesson. I think he's a good guy. I hated watching the part he gets punched and kicked around by the violent and stupid police man! I felt so sad when I continued watching and hearing his story, now I hate crackheads more than ever. But don't worry, I won't go around kidnapping people and put them in torture chambers and let them do dumb choices and get their limbs get sliced off, or burn from acid
Jigsaw/John Kramer is creative, however he never actually kills any of his victims. He is really original and finds twisted ways to his victims to kill themselves. Unlike Michael Myers he and Jason kill people for vengeance and not because they are bored. However I think that he is more original than Jason because there isn't a horror movie character that punishes people like Jigsaw
The must subtle-on-screen horror character there is but the most dreadful-intention-thinking one. Great Character, Jigsaw from the Saw series and definiately a best. I think this could and shhould get in the top 3 and I think it could do very well in this vote like it deserves. Well Done Saw Director/Directors.
He's the only horror movie killer who hasn't killed anyone. He's intelligent and says really meaningful things and in most horror movies, when the killer dies, it's over. Not in Saw. The games have only just begun.
I just watched the 2017 version of "It" and let me tell you: It. Was. AWESOME! Pennywise is scary and creepy and he seems really unique. He has this way of making you wish he never gets defeated because he is so cool and charismatic. He is also SUPER weird and has a really unsettling voice. He is my favorite Horror movie villain.
Just the idea of a menacing clown that eats children and takes on your greatest fear is scary enough. Screw Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers, this supernatural figure is one you don't want to mess with.
Tim Curry's version of Pennywise is definitely enjoyable to watch but the 2017 version of Pennywise is a true horror figure. Pennywise or It is the very reason most people are terrified of clowns.
Clowns were always creepy to me, and being the weird person I am, I went to go see this movie with my friends.
I loved the movie, but seeing the new Bill Skarsgård version of Pennywise was pretty terrifying. Tim Curry's version was... okay... but it didn't scare me. the new Pennywise will mess you up if you have a phobia of clowns.
He is very intelligent and easily capable of manipulating anyone to do his bidding. I thought he was still an anti-hero, but he still plays off as a horror villain as he brutally beats a security officer and eats the younger guy. Then he comes off with a major twist that I refuse to spoil because it is just so shocking, I wouldn't ant to ruin the experience for your reaction. And the ending, "I'm going to have an old friend for dinner." O_O
"I'm going to have a friend for dinner." Ya don't say.
How is Chucky better than Hannibal Lecter?
Chucky 4th position and Lecter only 6th? An apocalypse is coming very soon,my friends.
It's not just Leatherface, it's his entire cannibal family that's scary! Leatherface is just the butcher. Still though, he is one of my favourite horror villains!
He was based off a real life serial killer named Ed Gein who did wear a mask out of leather and a belt out of people's nipples.
I am so scared of him. And he is the best character.
He is so disgusting
Jaws was scary for me as a kid but now I know that the time that the first jaws movie had the timeline set when sharks first started killing it was a shocker to the world when shark attack humans so it kinda scary still.
Jaws isn't bad I don't know what is wrong with all you.
Boring. It wasn't scary at all.
Jaws is terrifying
The Alien is the ultimate predator if there ever was one. It kills without guilt, empathy, or remorse, only survival in its mind. One by one, the Nostromo astronauts are devoured by this nearly unstoppable beast. And don't get me started on the Cenomorph Queen.
Alien is definitely one of the scariest films ever made. Maybe even the scariest. Alien creature made many shocking things with humans
Alien is the best horror icon out there in my opinion.
That second mouth really does a number in the first movie!
By far, the coolest and most elegantly designed horror character
Really cool ability and weapon set makes him one of the strongest and best. probably not as strong as Michael or Jason or Freddy but still cool.
Predator is U.F.O. creatura, werry good speed and power, Predator is half to flying and infiltrace of force. He go in the mask. The is pradator look mask, the of course creature.
I don't think it should be freddy vs Jason it should be PREDATOR vs Jason
Not only is he charismatic and intelligent, but he is a cold and calculating sadist that kills the spirit while forcing the mind and body to endure untold unimaginable suffering. Whereas other movie villains kill indiscriminately and without any remorse, he finds joy on an almost sexually gratifying manner of making you wish he was a ruthless killer.
Who you callin, Pinhead"
I'm a girl and I practically want to dress up as him for Halloween
He or she guts his/ her victims. He/she can disappear without a trace. Lastly it is a new person every time so you don't know who the killer is
Movies don't make psychos! Movies make psychos more creative!
Ghostface is lame. He is Stupid and clumsy
He is top 5.He is funny in Scream 1 and Scream 3
Whats more scary than a girl being possessed by a ghost, then having a deep voice while the bed rocks back and fourth. Shes screaming in real life! That's not acting! Plus, 9 people died on the set of this movie. It is seriously the scariest movie ever!
If you don't rank her in the top five then you don't know scary. I would put her up against any I mean any characters created today and she would and is the scariest character ever created.
The poor girl must have been scared too. That is if she was aware of what was happening while she was posessed.
I really like The Exorcist. I am planning to be Regan for Halloween
The thing could become ANYONE in this list! The film is spectacular and the atmosphere makes the thing much more menacing!
He is the only iconic horror character who is good and he certainly is the one wh could put up with all the others.
Why isn't this guy higher!? He should be at least in 2nd or 3rd place! 16 is too low for the king of Boomsticks!
Ash is no good or bad he is the guy with the gun.
Hail to the King, baby.
The key word here is "character." While Jason Freddy and Michal are all great villains, they are for the most part one-dimensional. Norman however is one of the most interesting and complex villains of all time, due to how easily people in real life could become him.
He really needs to be in top 5!
What a legendary character he is, portraying negativity is not easy, he put his heart and soul In it.
Really? #19? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?... Norman Bates is truly one of the greatest, scariest, messed up, and most complex movie/book characters of all time. Anthony Perkins played this character really well, which makes him able to hang around with some of the great actors/actresses.
Such a complex character. You'd rarely see another character like Bates in a horror film.
Annabelle is so scary
She is every celebrities worst nightmare.
The hobbling scene.., need I say more?
Jason, Michael, Freddy, Candyman- they're all great. But take they're weapons away and they have to hunt you down etc etc. Carrie could look at you and you burst into flames. Go Carrie
Teacher should show this movie in class so that bullies would better think twice before doing something horribly, horribly wrong.
You go Carrie you show those bullies whose boss.
If only she had a friend. Then the tragedy could have been avoided
An ancient demon who arises every 23rd spring for twenty three days. Shows absolutely no mercy, pity, remorse for his victims. Can't die has extremely high strength able to swoop down and pick anybody (can fly) makes his weapons threw bones out of victims which are really sharp. Very intelligent in human technology able to fix and operate old trucks and cars and make them reach high speeds over 100mph. Can break solid metal with his bare hands can decapitate a person without any trouble. I believe he can Mach up against any of the characters on this list could take Michael Myers, Jason and Freddy at the same time without breaking a sweat. The creepers stomps. He's been around since the time of Jesus Christ. Nothing could kill a beast that has lived for over 3500 years and still living.
