Fred’s Top 10: Terrifying Movie Characters

While, this would make more sense to release around Halloween, I’ve compiled a top ten list of the most terrifying characters in film history. Not all of the selections I’ve made come from horror movies. Hit the jump to see the things nightmares are made of…

Honorable Mention: Cheryl – The Evil Dead (1981)

Actress: Ellen Sandweiss

Straight up: fuck this bitch. This crusty, white skank tormented my childhood. So, I’d be lying to myself if I didn’t include her in this list.

Honorable Mention: Attic Boy – [Rec] (2007)

I watched this movie and didn’t jump once. The movie in a whole isn’t scary as it’s more a fun zombie flick, but the second this little shit popped out of that attic I dropped a log in my boxers. Expected or not, this kid is the reason I can’t look at little, 5-year old Mexican children ever again.

10. Graf Orlok/Nosferatu – Nosferatu The Vampyre (1922)

Actor: Max Schreck

This list would be incomplete without the inclusion of arguably the first horror icon in film history. While, maybe not terrifying in today’s standards, I guarantee if you heard a knock at your bedroom door and opened it to find this motherfucker staring blankly into your eyes, you would shit yourself in a heartbeat.

9. Derek Vinyard – American History X (1998)

Actor: Edward Norton

Re-watching American History X and yet-again being taken in by Norton’s powerhouse performance as the believable, terrifyingly realistic Derek Vinyard is the reason why I chose this as my new top 10 list. That’s reason enough to be placed on this list.

8. The Wicked Witch of the West – The Wizard of Oz (1939)

Actress: Margaret Hamilton

There have been countless witches written into cinema, and I know for a fact that anytime the word “witch” is heard or thought of, this bitch pops up in everybody’s head. If we ever saw the Blair Witch, she wouldn’t hold a broomstick to this green whore.

7. Norman Bates/Mother – Psycho (1960)

Actor: Anthony Perkins

“A boy’s best friend is his mother…”

6. The Joker – The Dark Knight (2008)

Actor: Heath Ledger

No one in their right minds would have believed that the pussy-boy from A Knights Tale would bring to life the most terrifying comic book villain on the big screen. Need proof? Go watch the hostage/TV scene from the movie and come back.

#5-1 Coming Soon…
