The Top Ten Best Horror Movie Villains
This is the guy who made us all scared of doing something we need to do to survive. It's like how sausage party made us scared of eating. He's also the scariest cause he can use your fear and is basically omnipotent in his realm. He's got the best story and was the first villain to make it to mortal Kombat. My favorite horror slasher ever
Freddy Krueger is like the best actor and he is more scary then any one else on this list he is also scared of nothing and never crys unlike michal and Jason is scared of water lol plus freddy can kill you in your dreams and everyone has to sleep.
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.
Freddy is the scariest, since he can murder you where you are the most vulnerable: your dreams. He's also cool, since he has the best one-liners and talks as you're being killed by him. And he's a shape-shifter, can manipulate himself, and has the razor gloves!
He never runs but he always catches up with his victims. He can't die no matter what you do to him and always comes back. There's never any clues as to why he kills except the fact that he's just evil and psychotic.
Most horror movie killers are either suffering through some psychological issues or just out for revenge.
Michael Myers,on the other hand,is the embodiment of pure evil.
Freddy is scary but he’s also entertaining which diminishes is scare factor. Michael Myers is pure evil no expression, no funny quips, no evil laugh just plain, unexplained evil.
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.
Jason is my favorite slasher villain. He's super strong, immortal and can heal. And he's tragic past makes him very interesting and unique. Jason is the kind of killer that you have to feel at least a little sorry for because of what happened to him as a child. Jason Voorhees also has the highest body count in horror. He's a badass!
Jason is the most iconic character on this list he is the one who made you not want to go to summer camps
Jason may be afraid of water and wears a mask but he did drown as a child. And his hockey mask looks really cool on him. But despite his flaws, he's still a badass! He's an undead killer who can never die, he can heal, and he's super strong. He's also quite capable of sneaking up on victims when and where they least expect and he's versatile, using all kinds of weapons and methods to kill people though he mainly uses his machete. He also has the highest body count in horror. He doesn't have to show his face or speak to be a badass. He's the king of slashers👑
He's the awesomest. I couldn't go to camp a month after I watched him.
This clown scared me half to death.Every time I walk past a sewer I look into it and make sure pennywise isn't in there
The very reason you are terrified of clowns. - Daviddv0601
SO creepy. I've never had a fear of clowns until I saw him.
He is impossible to kill what more can I say
Probably one of the more developed horror movie villains and like creates empathy for him despite what he does to the characters we follow in the movies, easily the true main character in the franchise.
The only horror movie who doesn't think of himself as a villain. In fact, his assistant was the real villain since she cheats. At least Jigsaw gives his victims a chance to escape, no matter how brutal the deathtraps are. - Daviddv0601
Personally, the COOLEST horror movie character!
He should be at least in the top 5. He's incredibly intelligent, insightful and sophisticated. He's good at getting into your head and playing mind games. Not to mention he's good at outsmarting people and is cannibalistic. He is not someone to be messed with or underestimated.
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.
A tie... these two both deserve to tie with Leatherface.
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
Come on, people, face the facts; he's so creepy!
Who’d even let that thing near their kid! - blackflower
While Leatherface is undoubtedly the scariest and creepiest of the bunch, it is not just him. It is his entire family that is corrupted who are cannibals. - Daviddv0601
Ed gein was never represented as somebody scarier than this skin wearer.
Amazing yet more effective in the novel
More effective in the book - blackflower
Here's Johnny! - Daviddv0601
While he may not be the most dangerous or scariest, he is the most interesting and developed character.
Every time he was on camera, he was the center of attention. Anthony Perkins was great in this role.
He's not the scariest but yeah, I agree, he is very developed - 24wangc
He should be number 4#
I think many people dismiss him because it's always a different killer instead of just one, but that's what's so great about him/her! While we got all those typical slashers, this one is a mystery! You're lead to believe one person is the killer, until it's revealed to be someone you least expected to be! I find them to be pretty underrated. - Daviddv0601
Ghostface has become grossly underrated over the years. He is one of the best horror villains to date for his wit, realistic depictions, and those haunting phone calls.
He is the most realistic killer on this list
Smart, Insane and strong.
Pinhead at 13? No way! he is up there with the best. Number 1 for me! The Freddy
I was going to vote for Chucky, because I thought he was rated too low... But then I saw where Pinhead ranked.
What? He's #12? He should be #2! (Freddy Krueger is #1)
The voice alone is terrifying. - blackflower
Leprechaun is so funny, even though I don't really like the movies I still watch the 1st one every saint patricks day! I would recommend you do the same!
He is smart,deadly and so frightening that when I saw him in the trailer for the movie I freaked - cadespencer
*Stop quaking bitch*
Alien hunter with no discrimination on what it kills. Come on people.
The most evil child in the world. - asantalo
Even as a non Christian he’s disturbing - blackflower
Very creepy. I'm not sure they belong in fourth, more fifth though.
The dangerous mother of Jason Voorhees.
One of the movies on my top five movies that make me mad it made me happy that her dream came true and when it was crushed I snapped like her and ooh you have no idea how evil I felt when she killed the people that bullied her >
I mean, sure, murder is bad, but she was tormented in high school. When she finally snapped and massacred everyone in that school, I rooted for her. - Daviddv0601
I hate bullies and I think Carrie did the right thing
This movie made me so mad that I loved the part where she kill's them
He's a straight badass, killed over a 20 people with just his hands, a knife, and a hot coffee, he had the second longest living streak of any character in the series, and plus, he's basically a human terminator - TundraTopTenners
Amazing - The8Bit
VERY close ties. I mean very.
The villain from Phantasm and a direct influence on Slender Man.
Yet another painfully underrated villain on the list. While it is a little understandable that I Know What You Did Last Summer is almost a ripoff of Scream, and therefore, the Ghostface Killer overshadows him, I still find him to be pretty good. He is everywhere and is very cunning. He is out for revenge on teens who literally almost got away with murder. Then there's the whole lore behind this guy - Was he always a killer? - Daviddv0601
She's great and scay. Total a new horror icon
To me her story was so sad, her mother tried to kill her when she was a baby, she was adopted by a family who killed her, she was just a little girl who was given an unfair life for no reason.
Put Samara in the top 10. - TheRingFangirl7
It wasn’t even her fault. If she knew how to control her powers she wouldn’t have been killed. - blackflower
In most versions he’s also alluring - blackflower
Flat out awesome. - blackflower
One of the most iconic horror movie villains.
I think I am the only one who voted for Kayako. I don't know what it is, but whatever the Japanese find scary in this film, I do too. My god, do I love the Grudge; I don't know what else to say other than I guess she doesn't beat around the bush and gets the job done with efficiency.
An innocent victim at first, but then the curse came into play. - blackflower
Just the ominous sound of that blade scraping the ground...
Not seeing the face makes it extremely unsettling. - blackflower
I have to read the book to understand the movie because it seemed silly Average
Eerie from the beginning - blackflower
Deadites should at least be at number 3 - AnimeFan2000
As said by the Nostalgia Critic, he/it makes us feel we have no one to blame but us. He is our best accomplishment and our worst screw-up.
He's not a horror villain because space odyssey is not a horror movie - cadespencer
