Top 11 Classic Horror Movie Villains

Fall is approaching fast, and everyone knows what that means (no, we’re not talking about pumpkin spice lattes). It means hours upon hours of horror movie marathons on almost every TV channel! In honor of scary movie season, here is a list of 11 of the most iconic horror movie villains of all-time.

#1 Jason Vorhees (Friday the 13th)

Jason is the classic, undying, epitome of the slasher genre at its height. With a total of 12 films in the Friday the 13th franchise, he has been one of the longest lasting stars.

#5 Pennywise (It)

Clowns are meant for children's entertainment, but ever since the release of It in 1990 (right), as well as the recent remake of the famous Stephen King novel (left), the market for real clowns who DON'T want to murder and feed off of small children seems to have become increasingly unstable.

#6 Pinhead (Hellraiser)

Pinhead is a grotesque being whose very design was created to make audiences cringe. Unlike most others on this list, there are really no reasons for him to look the way he does, such as scars or burns, but to simply look disgusting, yet unforgettable.

#7 Chucky (Child’s Play)

Chucky is a child's doll that comes to life, which sounds like most children's dreams. This fantasy quickly turns into every child's nightmare, as Chucky attempts to transfer his soul to a human body. His horrifying, yet comedic personality is what got him on this list.

#9 Xenomorph (Alien)

While the film series did eventually turn into action movies, the first Alien  movie is firmly grounded in the horror genre, with this barely seen creature evolving and stalking the crew of Nostromo.

#10 Ghostface (Scream)

Ghostface is primarily a costume rather than a character, as the person under the costume changes from movie to movie; however, the white mask and black robe are widely recognized throughout the horror movie genre.

#11 Hannibal Lecter (The Silence of the Lambs)

Contrary to every other villain on this list, Hannibal does not have any frightening visual distinctions. Lecter's mind and personality are his two most horrifying features. This creates a much more realistic visual that has spawned fear in it's viewers for years, making him a horror movie icon.
