The 50 most well-known horror villains

I know what you’re thinking. You’ve seen this list on a dozen other websites before. You know the usual suspects, and you know your favorite killer likely didn’t make the cut. Here’s the thing … you’ve never read my list before, and that’s an important difference – not just because who’s on it, but because everyone who isn’t and why.

For example, this type of list almost inevitably includes the pinhead from the Hellraiser Movies but you know what Pinhead isn’t exactly the villain in that first Hellraiser movie, and I didn’t particularly like it or find it interesting, so you won’t see him below. You won’t find the Babadook, which is seriously overrated, nor Annabelle because there is only room for one killer doll on this list.

Wes Craven‘s Scream is one of my favorite horror movies of all time, but don’t mix up a costume for a character. Ghostface is an iconic mask, not a real villain and as such didn’t make the cut. The creature in Predator was ineligible because this is more of an action film and you can just stop reading now if you thought I was ever going to record The Creeper by Jeepers Creepers. As for death itself, I will bring the invisible force into the world final destination Movies about the entity It follows every day, but there was no room here either.

This is where I come from in relation to this list, and yes I cheat a little from time to time, but I think you will like it. My madness has a method, so check out my list of the most iconic horror villains below and wish you a Happy Halloween. Stay safe out there!
