Intelligent, He can read you like a book before you have finished your sentence. He can get into your head quickly. He truly is one of the most entertaining fictional serial killers ever. - RIDDLER2K15

He's sadistic and blood-thirsty as well as incredibly intelligent. He is also extremely good at getting into your head. He totally deserves #1!

Hannibal the Cannibal... Surely deserved this spot.

What jack the ripper is suppose to be top ten cause he's cool

2 Freddie Krueger

Freddie Krueger is THE BEST! The burnt face just gives me the creeps.
Scary face, nasty words, the dream killer's got it ALL! He deserves number 1!

3 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.

He actually has more victories than any other killer on this list. He kills because he feels like he needs to, not because it's fun or he thinks it's justified. He even gets away with it.

He has the face of an angel and the mind of a demon.

Every one knows Michael Myers the true Serial Killer and, know matter what you do he never dies

He should be at number 1

He became a killer because his mother was decapitated by one of the counselors in the first movie. Now he wants revenge on anyone who returns to the camp. He's not totally evil, he just loves his mother.

10 John Doe

The Contenders

11 Candy Man

He wasn't always this way. This is what he became after he was brutally murdered and had his hand sawn off. Some people have no humanity.

12 Chucky Chucky Charles Lee Ray is a fictional character and the titular antagonist of the Child's Play horror film series.

The coolest thing about this killer is that he transported his soul into the body of a doll so that he can stay alive.

13 The Joker The Joker The Joker is a fictional super villain created by Bill Finger, Bob Kane, and Jerry Robinson who first appeared in the debut issue of the comic book Batman (April 25, 1940) published by DC Comics. Credit for the Joker's creation is disputed; Kane and Robinson claimed responsibility for the Joker's design, more.
14 The Tooth Fairy

He's played by Lord Voldemort himself.

AKA the Great Red Dragon.

15 Jeff the Killer Jeff the Killer Jeff the Killer is a creepypasta usually accompanied by a picture of a white face looking in to the camera smiling in an unsettling manner. The creepypasta is also usually accompanied by the term "Go to sleep".

His story is very flawed and unrealistic if you think about it, but I still love it all the same. And his appearance combined with his catch phrase "Go To Sleep" really is spooky, so he does deserve some credit. I like him.

16 Kira - Death Note

Notebook of death, shall I say more?

Scary killer show no mercy

17 Tiffany - Bride of Chucky
18 Red John

He's awesome he has Supernatural Powers truly, He knew about the Names in Jane's suspect list 3 month before Jane even did and Jane is the one who made it!

Oh, come on Hannibal is just a man who has been identified before AND caught, Red John is a Superhuman he makes NO mistakes, a true Supervillian with Psychic Powers and criminal genius.

26 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.

A cannibal with a mask made out of human skin and a house full of decorations made out of human bones. He should be higher.

He was inspired by real-life serial killer Ed Gein. Gein was also the inspiration for Hannibal Lecter and Norman Bates.

I think he should be higher on the list. He's very realistic looking.
