The Scariest of the Scary

1. Hannibal Lecter (The Silence of the Lambs): Hannibal is the bad guy in the three films entitled: The Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal and Red Dragon. He is a cannibal with a genius brain which is a deadly combination. Lecter has about ten different ways that he like to kill. Then, he eats his victims. Sometimes, they are alive as he is eating them. He is very hard to catch and even when he is locked up in jail he is capable of getting into the minds of his subjects. He is very intimidating

2. Michael Myers (Halloween): The Halloween Movie series has had twelve movies thus far. Michael Myers is the killer and in the films he stalks his own family. He killed his sister as a seven year old boy and went to a mental institution. Upon his release from the mental institution, he slowly hunted his other family members down one by one and, killed each one. Michael Myers wore an odd white mask and his weapon of choice was a butcher knife. These movies are some of the scariest ever made.

3. Norman Bates (Psycho): This movie is cray to say the least. He would dress like his mom and talk like his mom who was a dead corpse. The Psycho Films Series has had five films thus far. Four original films and one remake of this classic. Norman Bates had multiple personalities. He has his personality as well as that of his dead mother. As the Norman Bates personality he ran the hotel but, as his mother's personality, he kills the tenants by dressing up like his mother.

4. Leatherface (Texas Chainsaw Massacre): This film is based on a true story and there have been a total of seven movies made about this tragedy. Leatherface kills people with a meat hook or a chain saw, skins the face off and then sews it together to make a mask to wear because he was born with a facial deformity. He and The Hewitt Family are cannibals.

5. Jason Vorhees (Friday the 13th): The Friday The Thirteenth Series has had thirteen parts which to date, is the most sequels of any film. Jason drowned at the camp, as a child and grew up to come and terrorize any camper or counselors that came to the camp. Jason wears a hockey mask and his weapon of choice is a machete. He witnessed his mom getting her head cut off and that combined with the counselors allowing him to drown makes Jason keep killing for revenge.

6. Jigsaw (Saw): There were seven total Saw Films and Jigsaw was the boogeyman in some of the movies but, in some of the films he had an accomplice. Jigsaw sets traps for people and if you escape, he will let you free. The only problem is, the death traps are nearly inescapable. Live or die~make your choice. This guy uses his brain to create crazy games that are hard to figure out.

7. Chucky (Child's Play): There have been five movies made about this insane doll. Charles Lee Ray was a murderer and a robber who upon his death, transferred his evil soul to a doll becoming Chucky. The first three movies were scary but, the last two were more after thoughts. Update: As of 2013 they made a new Chuckie movie entitled' "Curse of Chucky".

8. Freddy Krueger (A Nightmare on Elm Street): There have been eight Nightmare on Elm Street Films and there was also a Horror Anthology called Freddy's Nightmares which featured Freddy as the host. Krueger was a child killer who was burned to death but, came back to haunt Elm Street citizens in there dreams. Freddy has a deadly glove with four razor sharp blades for the fingers.

9. Candyman (Candyman): Legend has it, if you say his name in the mirror three times, he will come. The problem is, the legend is true. A college student does a term paper on Urban Legends and soon discovers the Candyman tale to be real. Candyman was killed and his hand has been replaced by a hook. He haunts and kills those who say his name.

10. Pennywise the Clown (IT): This mini series was played on the major TV network ABC in 1990 and is based on the book by Stephen King. With it's creepy looking face, claws for fingernails, flaming red hair and ghostly white face, IT is the spookiest character in a while. This being is not human. It is a predatory life-form. He is able to transform himself into his victim's worst fear. In this case, a clown like figure.

      Such a great list. Michael Meyers to me is one of the horror villains in all of film. Pennywise is the reason I hate clowns, and I did hear that they are planning to do a remake of it. Great hub.
