Best Horror Movie Villains

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

The Top Ten

1 Freddy Krueger Freddy Krueger Fred "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.

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!

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

Go Freddy!

2 Michael Myers Michael Myers Michael Myers is a character from the Halloween series of slasher films. He first appears in John Carpenter's Halloween as a young boy who murders his older sister, then fifteen years later returns home to murder more teenagers.

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.

3 Jason Voorhees Jason Voorhees Jason Voorhees is a character from the Friday the 13th series. He first appeared in Friday the 13th as the young son of camp cook-turned-murderer, Mrs.

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

4 Leatherface Leatherface Leatherface is a character in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre horror-film series and its spin-offs. He wears masks made of human skin and engages in murder and cannibalism, alongside his inbred family.

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

5 Hannibal Lecter Hannibal Lecter

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

6 Norman Bates Norman Bates Norman 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.

7 Jigsaw Jigsaw

Personally, the COOLEST horror movie character!

8 Pennywise

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

9 Chucky Chucky Charles 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!

10 Jack Torrance Jack Torrance John Daniel Edward "Jack" Torrance is the main antagonist of Stephen King's horror novel The Shining.

The Contenders

11 Firefly Family

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

12 The Blind Man (Don't Breathe)

He is smart,deadly and so frightening that when I saw him in the trailer for the movie I freaked - cadespencer

13 Ghostface

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