Scariest Faces In Horror Movies

The Top Ten
1 Regan MacNeil (The Exorcist) Regan Teresa MacNeil is a fictional character from William Peter Blatty's horror novel and film adaptation The Exorcist as a supporting character and its first sequel, Exorcist II: The Heretic and the sequel television series, The Exorcist, as one of the main protagonists in season one. In both films, she was portrayed by Linda Blair and in the television series, she was played by Geena Davis.

I still can't sleep every time I see that face it creeps the hell outta me! I mean, in some parts of the movie its not that scary, in many parts it creeps me out like. This movie is one of the most scary movies I've ever seen.

I vividly remember as a kid of 10 years old when The Exorcist came out and seeing the pictures of Reagan in magazine and newspaper articles and she looked absolutely frightening to me then!

I saw her in Scary Maze but her face was just her skin color changed into gray as if I saw the picture of her was colorized.

I know what you mean... Once I was looking for creepy prank apps and I found some images of the gameplay of one of them and it was supposed to be like a normal game but on stage three there was a creepy pop up of her and it was sooo creepy! But I still slept well. I had to close my eyes or look away for tent seconds when I see it close up... And yes I'm a girl under ten years old.

2 Michael Myers (Halloween) 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. In October 2018, a sequel to the original Halloween was released, following 20 years after Michael Myers’s story.

It's something about the way it looks if he's looking directly at you. The solid black eye-holes and the unforgiving look really creeps me out. Sometimes, I even have nightmares of him, nearly killing me and him just being unrelenting. You can't change my mind about Michael's mask being the scariest face in all of horror movies.

Sorry guys, but I'll have to vote for this one, because of its genius originality of creep factor, an emotionless face. I praise this mask because of its iconic and memorable image, being more simple than many other masks like Leatherface or Jason, and scarier.

The face of evil = brilliant. This plain white emotionless face that hides in the shadows and never makes a sound is so terrifying still to this day.

Although Michael Myers is terrifying, you guys are saying that William Shatner with a pure white face is the scariest thing ever.

3 Pennywise the Clown (IT)

Come on, Jigsaw isn't scary. He's a lame puppet in a movie where the plot is so stupid and the characters so unbelievable that no one is scared, their just grossed out. Its sad people these days can't tell the difference. Anyway I voted Pennywise because I remember as a kid walking past the movie at the video store and being too afraid to watch it just because the clown on the front was terrifying.

IT is a great movie but Pennywise is really creepy, I already was scared of clowns then I am totally freaked out by clowns after I watched this movie.

A persons fear of clowns can now be justified. Just mention Pennywise and people will believe you!

He and the Killer Clown Murder who was real caused my fear of clowns. Tim Curry did a good job!

4 Leatherface (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) 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.

You may not see this inbred's face but he would be EXTREMLY UGLY! And that mask! If human skin. Dried from a freshly dead human. And he prances around in his skin/face mask. But the scariest mask if his was the 1974 version. Good god. It looked so real... I can't stop thinking about it since I watched at the beginning if summer!

He looks so dang gross. He has a mask made out of human skin. He looks even more scarier than freddy krueger, jason voorhees, and Michael myers.

The old version is so creepy you get nightmares by looking at it. NOT THE 2003 ONE! that's not scary.

This picture here is not the real leatherface.

5 Freddy Krueger (Nightmare On Elm Street) 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).

Well, I have a little story. I have something like a picture of him on my iPod. I set my alarm for about 60... Well, my iPod works somewhat so that it doesn't go to my alarm, it shows the picture. My iPod doesn't play Music and Video at the same time... Well, neither does anyone elses'... So, now, every morning, since I usually leave the picture on before I go to sleep, I wake up and see Krueger's face. Not the most fun thing to wake up to.

Scary, no. I think not. Well, yes, over all the movie is, but then again, Freddy's face isn't terrifying. It is just creepy, and... Downright... EERIE.


Freddy is relentless. No Weakness. The most gruesome kills. and he can kill you in any way he imagines because its in a dreamworld. Plus no one ever believes you

Freddy gives you nightmares, which... Well... Isn't the best thing to happen, right? I didn't think so.

6 Ghostface (Scream)

So scary that I can't sleep and when I wake up at night I go sleep in my parents bed. I didn't see the movie but think its nice.

Come on, it's just one of those stupid Halloween masks you get at the shops.

The face looked very scary...
But everything poo when the ghostface's face was revealed

This is one of the most iconic masks in cinema history!

7 Jason Voorhees (Friday the 13th) 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. Voorhees.

You gotta be kidding me if he's not the 1st. He wears the creepiest and most classic Hockey mask cinema has ever known.
Behind it, the most horrifying zombie face.

8 Jigsaw Puppet (Saw)

My biggest gripe about the Saw films is they focused way too much on killing people with traps and not enough on the actual villain. Jigsaw is one scary mother even without his mask! If he actually went out and killed people face to face with a knife or something, I guarantee the popularity of the films would go through the roof.

I couldn't sleep for 6 years because of this face. Scariest thing I ever saw in my life. I had to secretly burn my parent's saw movies just to get rid of that horriying face on the cover.

Smart killing bastard! Laugh out loud

I want to play a Game!

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

He was scarier when the movies stopped being horror movies.

10 Annabelle (The Conjuring)

Why didn't you put these here, this is the most scariest.

Super eerie. Makes me (and many others) feel uneasy.

The Contenders
11 Pazuzu (The Exorcist) Pazuzu is a fictional character who is the main antagonist in The Exorcist horror novels and film series, created by William Peter Blatty.

Why is this not higher, out of all the horror movie faces that I have seen, none has disturbed and scarred me more than Pazuzu. It is no contest. This face made me find it hard to go asleep, let alone haunt me through the night. I had trouble sleeping for weeks. Why is Ghostface higher than Pazuzu, his face seemed more funny than scary.

The face of the demon which appears for 3 frames during Father Karras' dream. Absolutely terrifying. It can't be unseen.

I would say this creepy white demon should be above Regan McNeil for obvious reasons.

This one gave me nightmares.

12 Hannibal Lecter (Hannibal) Dr. Hannibal Lecter is a character in a series of suspense novels by Thomas Harris. Lecter was introduced in the 1981 thriller novel Red Dragon as a forensic psychiatrist and cannibalistic serial killer.

Anthony Hopkins is a great actor as well.

He doesn't blink.

13 Kayako Saeki (The Grudge)

Don't anyone DARE add a picture! I have a phobia of the creaking door sounds in my house, thanks to her! Please don't add a picture of her to the list. I'll be scared to touch my computer if that happens.

Kayako is terrifiying on her own (close behind samara morgan) but the way they made her appear in the movies is what makes it bone chilling.
Girl white skin, long black hair and a white dress? Nope!

Jigsaw is in top10 but this isn't?

Totally underrated face

14 Samara Morgan (The Ring) Sadako Yamamura, also known as Park Eun-suh and Samara Morgan, is the central antagonist of Koji Suzuki's Ring novel series and the film franchise.

Oh my god. After you see this movie you are like eh, that was pretty good. Later, you start seeing things...

When I actually watch this movie, I'm not scared. Thinking about it in bed...totally different story...

Reminds me of a really angry, dirty version of Gollum.

Why isn't this number one?

15 Annabelle (Annabelle)
16 Smile Entity (Smile)
17 Count Orlok (Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horrors)

Ah, so now we know the true identity of who was turning off the lights in Graveyard Shift.

Reminds me of graveyard shift. Then who was flickering the lights? Nosferatu

If he's not scary then who was flickering the Lights?

I only came here for Spongebob.

18 Possessed Mia (Evil Dead)
19 Xenomorph (Alien) The Alien (also known as a Xenomorph XX121 or Internecivus raptus, or simply a xenomorph) is a fictional extraterrestrial species that serves as the title antagonist of the Alien film series.
20 Jack Torrance (The Shinning) John Daniel Edward "Jack" Torrance is the main antagonist of Stephen King's horror novel The Shining.

It's only when he says "here's johnny! "

21 The Skinamarink (Skinamarink)
22 Lipstick-Face Demon (Insidious)
23 Entity (Gonjiam: Haunted Asylum)
24 Malthus (The Conjuring)
25 Frank Cotton (Hellraiser)
