This is a list of the most chillingly terrifying figures in film, as ranked and voted on by horror fans. There are a lot of scary movies out there, some that stick with you in your nightmares and others you just love to peek through your fingers at while shrieking in glee - or maybe even dress up as for Halloween. But then there are the ones that have a particular figure in them, a monster or a man or a pale child... that really makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up - or makes you immediately break out into a sprint. Which is the scariest? Which one is the one you would LEAST like to EVER meet? Vote for your favorite horror movie villains, killers, and otherwise freaky figures and add any you see missing. Be sure to rank your own version if you really want to impact this list!
