List Rules Vote up the actors who look the least like their villainous counterparts.

Some famous horror actors are only known to the public by the face they wear on screen. Whether they're hiding behind a hockey mask like Jason Voorhees of Friday the 13th fame, or caked in grotesque makeup like The Exorcist's Linda Blair, horror actors in makeup look completely different out of character – and that's a good thing since some of their horror movie counterparts are downright scary looking.

These pictures of horror actors in and out of makeup go all the way back to the 1920's and include some of your favorite movie villains. Amazingly, these characters's creepy looks were all created without the use of CGI. With makeup, prosthetics, or a freaky William Shatner mask, these horror villains are all real. This list of actors all had to sit in makeup chairs for hours as artists painstakingly applied their costume day after day. Now that's commitment.

Here's a look at the real faces who lie beneath some of the most terrifying horror villains. Learn more about your favorite genre baddies and make sure to vote up the most drastic transformations.
