Best Male Perfomance In Horror Movie

The Top Ten

1 Jack Nicholson - The Shining

One of the greatest performances ever put on screen.

Deserved an oscar for this performance.

2 Kurt Russell - The Thing
3 Christian Bale - American Psycho
4 Devon Sawa - Final Destination

Unlike the latest Final Destinations, the first one actually has good acting and you can tell they are scared. In the original they were sweating and even wanted to commit suicide, unlike the latest ones where they just deal with it - jamienicholls

5 Roy Scheider - Jaws

I think this actor is so underrated, I really think he deserves more respect, probably should put him at least 2 behind jack nicholson

6 Robert Englund - A Nightmare on Elm Street

No one can out do Robert mostly because he needs skill (which he has loads of) to play Freddy. People like Michael Myers and Jason Vorhees are okay but seriously, come on. All they have to do is walk around with either a glide or a slow step and swing a machete or knife. Freddy talks, has to seem really scary and also has to BE Freddy to do the role. Robert did the best!

I still have a hard time on thinking whether I should fall asleep or not

Good Job Robert You scared us beyond repair (in a good way! )

Nobody can give a performance like Robert did. He is and will always be my favorite. THE ONLY FREDDY! Robert forever!

thanks to him I was afraid of falling asleep for about 3 months straight - aman28

7 Ryan Reynolds - The Amityville Horror
8 Arnold Schwarzenegger - Predator
9 Tobin Bell - Saw
10 Josh Duhamel - Turistas

The Contenders

11 Michael Biehn - Aliens
12 Jeff Goldblum - Jurassic Park
13 Jeffrey Dean Morgan - The Possession
14 Tony Todd - Candyman
15 James McAvoy - Split
16 Michael Fassbender - Prometheus Michael Fassbender is a German-Irish actor of stage and screen whose career includes roles in both independent and blockbuster films, most notably; Hunger, Inglourious Basterds, Shame, X-Men: First Class, Prometheus, 12 Years a Slave, Frank, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and Steve Jobs.
