  1. 1Michael Myers

    Is there any need for an introduction? Michael Myers has been a staple and a part of every family's Halloween tradition since his 1978 film debut. With his numerous appearances and films via 'The Halloween' franchise, not counting his countless murders, this masked villain is sure to creep everyone out with his signature killing ways.

  1. 2Jason Voorhees

    13

    A true horror movie icon and one who never fails to make the hairs at the back of our necks raise, Jason Voorhees is known as a real maniac for revenge against those responsible for his drowning in a lake. Sporting his signature hockey mask while murdering, there is no question that he sure gave Freddy Krueger and the whole Friday the 13th followers a run for their money. 

  2. 3Jack Torrance

    9

    We all know that 'The Shining' is a legendary horror flick, and this is all thanks to this character's writer's block. Jack Torrance's murders will always be remembered as being gruesome and super disturbing. His character as the Overlook Hotel's character is one of the most feared throughout cinema's history. Mr. Jack Nicholson was surely the right choice to engrave this killer's presence on the big screen. 

  1. 4Pennywise

    4

    No one exactly knows what Pennywise (or It) could be or where he is exactly from, but he is one creepy horror movie villain for sure. With a variety of abilities that include shapeshifting and manipulation across the state of Maine, he is a deceivingly evil clown that will make any child cry out loud, as can be seen in his movies.

  2. 5Annabelle Doll

    3

    If there is someone to blame for kids being scared with pretty dolls, it's definitely this horror movie villain. Annabelle has been scaring moviegoers since 'The Conjuring' where this scary character shows the true terrors brought upon by a true-to-life haunted doll. Add this up to her self-titled thriller, then everything is much scarier. Whether the realness of the true Annabelle doll can be verified or not, what is for sure is this unassuming little villain will continue to haunt everyone with her smile.

  3. 6Freddy Krueger

    3

    Sleeping has never been scarier as Frederick Charles "Freddy" Krueger has terrorized people in their slumber since 1984's 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' and has never looked back since then. His signature gloved hand and razors make up his recipe for murder designed for people in their dreams. This makes him one of the more iconic horror movie villains of all-time. 

  4. 7Samara Morgan

    3

    Televisions were supposed to be entertaining until Samara Morgan came to the picture, literally. She terrorized film lovers in the American version of 'The Ring' movie series. Based on her Japanese counterpart, Sadako, who is also known to bust out of television sets seeking for revenge, there is no denying how disturbing yet iconic this horror villain is.

  5. 8Leatherface

    3

    With his iconic chainsaw and an insurmountable amount of murders, Leatherface from 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' is a no-brainer for one of the best horror movie villains ever. No one can possibly be more morbid and more brutal than a cannibal killer who uses his victim's skin as materials for his mask. His murdering rampage is one of the most complex that you'll ever see, just like his interesting backstory.
