before we begin we publish new videos
every day so be sure to subscribe for
more great content for this list we’re
taking a look at horror movie baddies
that left their bloody marks on the
silver screen and continued to plague
our nightmares
number 10 the entity it follows it could
look like someone you know or it could
be a stranger in a crowd sexual
intercourse almost always equals death
and horror movies and it follows puts a
clever spin on this familiar trope when
college student Jay goes all the way
with her boyfriend they exchanged more
than just bodily fluids Jay soon learns
that her boyfriend has passed on to her
a horrifyingly odd version of an STD a
mysterious supernatural entity that only
she can see this creature thing
relentlessly follows Jay wherever she
goes and won’t stop until she’s dead
although the force walks at a leisurely
pace the fact that it can assume any
form at once leaves Jay on guard at all
times the entity will also have the
audience looking over their shoulders as
they walk out of the theater number 9
Chucky the child’s play franchise
originally a human serial killer Charles
Lee ray uses his last ounce of strength
to transport his soul into a good guy
doll from there Chucky makes a game out
of murdering people all while trying to
gain a new human host on the one hand
turning a toy doll into a horror movie
monster might seem like a silly idea
then again we’ve all come across dolls
that just seemed off shedding
unintentionally creepy vibes amazing
isn’t it Chucky is a possessed plaything
that manages to find the right balance
of both scary and self-aware once you’ve
seen him you’ll never look at a Cabbage
Patch Kid the same way again
number eight Regan MacNeil also known as
Pazuzu The Exorcist franchise when we
first meet Regan MacNeil she’s a shy
seemingly normal twelve-year-old girl
this makes her transformation all the
more jarring as the demon Pazuzu takes
over her body
where’s Regan in here it uh between
Linda Blair’s haunting performance
Mercedes McCambridge his menacing voice
and dick Smith’s ghastly makeup effects
Regan set the standard for sinister
little girls in film when the Exorcist
came out in 1973 she had audiences
screaming in their seats and darting out
of the theater decades later Regan still
curdles our blood with her spinning head
spider walk and green vomit
speaking of which how many Best Picture
nominees can you think of that were
actually equipped with barf bags for
viewers seven Candyman the Candyman
franchise from his spine-chilling voice
to his dominating demeanor to the hook
that stands in for his hand
Candyman is like something out of a
classic campfire story as far as Helen
Lyle is concerned though Candyman is
nothing more than an urban legend
tonight our congregation shall witness a
new miracle
she has no qualms about saying his name
five times into a mirror which will
supposedly summon the fiend and as you
might expect she made a huge mistake
what makes Candyman such a frightening
foe is that he starts off largely
grounded in myth but soon emerges as the
real deal his tragic origins also give
him a surprising degree of depth torture
and racism sent Candyman down of
vengeful path number six pinhead the
Hellraiser franchise waste of food
ironically the Cenobite leader isn’t on
screen for that long in the original
he’s not even referred to as pinhead a
name the makeup crew came up with
nevertheless this hell priest went on to
become this franchise’s mascot and for
good reason his design is one of the
most distinctive in the horror genre
looking like a heavy metal punk who got
pierced by Satan himself this isn’t for
your eyes what’s more performer Doug
Bradley brought an elegance to the role
that just wasn’t present in most slasher
movie villains at the time director
Clive Barker has cited Count Dracula as
a key influence for pinhead and he
definitely shares a similar chilling
janessa quoi number 5 Leatherface the
Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise
American serial murderer edn has
inspired numerous fictional serial
killers including this chainsaw wielding
Mad Men likewise Leatherface has
influenced the slasher genre in more
ways than we can count
with his towering body power tool is a
weapon of choice and a mask made from
human skin this cannibals appearance
alone is enough to strike utter dread
into his victims granted his personality
and motivations aren’t especially
complex but the character’s simplicity
is exactly why he’s so memorable all we
really need to know is that Leatherface
won’t stop pursuing his targets until
they’ve been slaughtered like barnyard
animals hey what do you expect from a
guy that comes from such a messed-up
family number four Freddy Krueger and
Nightmare on Elm Street franchise even
after this child killer is burned alive
he continues to butcher people from
beyond the grave in the realm of dreams
with this power he’s able to prey upon
his slumbering victims when they’re at
their most vulnerable and unsuspecting
please God
here’s God whereas some slasher villains
hide behind a mask
Freddy isn’t afraid to show off his
hideous face along with his clawed glove
striped sweater and brown fedora Freddy
isn’t the silent type either gleefully
cracking jokes as he rips human beings
apart in addition to having away with
one-liners Freddy is also one of the
most inventive villains in the history
of horror always coming up with fresh
and creative ways to dispose of
teenagers number three it also known as
penny wise the dancing clown it’s hi
Georgie it’s debatable who was the best
penny wise overall Tim Curry or Bill
skarsgård while curry probably scored
more laughs skarsgård brought the
terror to a whole new level which is
what matters most on this list as the
dancing clown that torments the children
of Dairy skarsgård sends a shiver down
your spine from the minute Pennywise
lures young Georgie into a storm drain
with an eerie voice and devilish makeup
he is the stuff that nightmares are made
of of course he can also take on a
variety of different forms including a
leper and a headless boy in any case
Pennywise knows how to sink his teeth
into kids literally and feed off their
fears number 2 Jason Voorhees the Friday
the 13th franchise Jason Voorhees is
synonymous with Friday the 13th both the
day itself and the horror franchise of
the same name interestingly enough Jason
wasn’t the primary antagonist in the
original 1980 classic that distinction
goes to his homicidal mother who seeks
retribution at Camp Crystal Lake decades
after her son drowned sweep it was Jason
from the first sequel onward however
Jason delivered the freights and later
acquired his signature hockey mask and
machete like Leatherface Jason can
conjure so much terror even when given
very little to work with cementing his
place as one of the all-time greats
he’s one fo you wouldn’t want to cross
paths with in the woods or on a space
station for that matter
before we unveil our number one pick
here are some honorable mentions
number one Michael Myers the Halloween
franchise the original Halloween opens
from Michael Myers perspective as he
stabs his older sister to death while
that’s already horrifying what truly
shocks the audience is that Michael was
only six years old at the time
if this troubled soul could commit these
atrocities at such a young age imagine
what he could do as an adult well jump
ahead about 15 years and Michael is
evolved into the ultimate modern
armed with a knife Michael is what
Norman Bates would be if you took away
all of his dialogue and gave him a mask
that looked a little bit like William
Shatner and as proven in 1982 s unloved
michaelis Halloween 3 season of the
witch the disturbed and seemingly
unstoppable killer is what makes this
franchise do you agree with our picks
