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,... read more

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.

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... read more

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.

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.

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.

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.

Goodnight.

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

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.

9 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.

10 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.

The Contenders
11 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...

She doesn't really show her face, but she's very scary nevertheless.

12 Kayako Saeki (The Grudge)

The cracking sound she makes is even scarier than her face. Proves that the anticipation of a jumpscare can be much scarier than the jumpscare itself.

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!

13 Smile Entity (Smile)
14 Annabelle (The Conjuring)

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

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

15 Possessed Mia (Evil Dead)
16 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.
17 The Skinamarink (Skinamarink)
18 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.

19 Lipstick-Face Demon (Insidious)

Not even the scariest creature in the movie, and it's still beyond horrifying.

20 Entity (Gonjiam: Haunted Asylum)
21 Malthus (The Conjuring)
22 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! "

23 Frank Cotton (Hellraiser)
24 Bathsheba Sherman (The Conjuring)

When the witch is on top of the mom in bed!. Smoking hot. Lol super creepy looking face and I think easily top 3 scariest face in a movie. Then proceeds to puke in her mouth thus possessing her. Classic.

That part where the witch jumps from the top of the cupboard...

25 Annie/Paimon (Hereditary)
