10 Most Iconic Horror Movie Villains of All Time

Halloween may long behind us, but the horror hype is not. Here are 10 of the most iconic horror movie villains of all time.

Billy the Puppet

A laughing dummy on a tricycle doesn’t sound all that creepy… oh wait, it does. And it is.


There have been hundreds of vampires in movie history, but Dracula will always be the most infamous and the most iconic.


Chucky from Child’s Play is not a doll you want in your toy box. Though, if it’s a choice between Chucky and The Conjuring‘s Annabelle, we choose Chucky every time.


Pennywise from IT is terrifying in both the original and the remake. He’s also responsible for a growing epidemic of coulrophobia (fear of clowns).

Michael Myers

A slasher franchise like Halloween doesn’t get to be one of the greatest horror movies of all time without one killer villain. That villain is Michael Myers.

Freddy Krueger

His horrific appearance and the fact he kills you in your sleep makes Freddy terrifying. His witty banter and brilliant one-liners is what makes him iconic.


Samara from The Ring is so creepy, we don’t even want to share a picture.


AKA that seriously creepy kid with long hair from The Grudge.


Friday the 13th‘s Jason Voorhees is another masked slasher villain that you definitely don’t want to encounter.

Jack Torrance

Jack Torrance from The Shining might have the appearance of an ordinary man, but his unpredictable mood swings and the ax he swings about makes him one hell of a villain.
