Top Ten Best Movie Slashers


The Top Ten

1 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. more.

The literal personification of evil itself. He is a force of nature, he can't be stopped. He's silent and menacing, with no regards to morality or humanity. He is the thing all horror movie slashers should be. He's simple, pure, uncorrupted evil and fear. He can't die. But his he really even alive? There is no man behind the mask, nothing lies behind that mask, just another mask that hides the true evil Michael is. Jason, Freddy, John Kramer, Ghostface, they all pale in comparison to the original master of horror. The Shape is the undisputed King of Slasher films.

Damn, I heard a noise in my hallway after watching the movie... I couldn't fall asleep for the next hour. Scary as hell. He's not mental. He's not crazy.

He's evil.

dude, he is so messed up in the head. Even the music in Halloween is scarier than these other dudes on the list

Its tough to pick between him and Jason but Michael is just so evil! And I love it - eminemloverlyricdude

This demented, deformed degenerate is one of the slasher genre's most relentless killers. He shows virtually no humanity and is merely a killing machine beyond our understanding. - JR302

He is a unkillable relentless murdering machine from hell he killed over 200 people in so many creative and enjoyable ways hearing his little chant scared the hell out of me
