Best Horror Movie VillainsWhat are the top best horror movie villains, that make the silver screen red with blood?
The Top Ten
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!V 10 Comments
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.
Michael myres one of the best
He is awesomeV 2 Comments
Agreed - TheRingFangirl7
Better than Michael Myers. - MrReally
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
He is impossible to kill what more can I say
Even more terrifying in the book. - blackflower
He is so creepy and he has no human emotionsV 3 Comments
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!
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
Who’d even let that thing near their kid! - blackflower
Come on, people, face the facts; he's so creepy!
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 should be number 4#
This psychotic man is the icon of horror the shower scene will be remembered through out history the man with psychosis and some form of multiple personality disorder he should be higher oh...and one more thing...how long will you be staying? jk but he also has an amazing troubling childhood he killed his father for abusing his mother and later on killed his mother.The twisted turn of events are amazing
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.
He is the most realistic killer on this list
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.
Smart, Insane and strong.
The voice alone is terrifying. - blackflower
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)
He is smart,deadly and so frightening that when I saw him in the trailer for the movie I freaked - cadespencer
*Stop quaking bitch*
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.
She didn't deserve the torment she got. Not one bit of it.
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 >
This movie made me so mad that I loved the part where she kill's them
If she just had one friend things could’ve been different - blackflowerV 3 Comments
Amazing - The8Bit
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
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.
Not seeing the face makes it extremely unsettling. - blackflower
Just the ominous sound of that blade scraping the ground...
I have to read the book to understand the movie because it seemed silly Average
Deadites should at least be at number 3 - AnimeFan2000
An innocent victim at first, but then the curse came into play. - blackflower
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.
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
