HALLOWEEN! *EVIL LAUGH*October 24, 2012
We’ve been talking all things Halloween at UO: what we’re going to wear, the best trick we’ve ever played (more about that later) and who is the scariest horror movie baddie we’ve ever seen. You can add to this list, but in the meantime, this is who we thought were the most terrifying of all the big screen bad guys. Let us know who terrifies you in the comments!
Freddy Krueger (A Nightmare On Elm Street)
With a razor sharp glove and a promise to kill kids in their sleep, this dude was like Edward Scissorhands’ evil twin. Our favourite scene was definitely the puppet scene from number 3 (The Dream Warriors), but what we especially liked about ol’ FK is his ability to rock a striped jumper and Fedora, waaaay before it ever got fashionable.
Jason Voorhies (Friday 13th Parts 1-2 and on and on and on)
This guy is one reason to never want to play hockey, or wear a hockey mask, or go to summer camp. He didn’t care what he used to slice and dice semi naked young women (and their boyfriends), and he managed to last for 12 movies and a TV show. That’s a lot of stamina for a dead guy.
The Child Catcher (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang)
What fresh hell is this? The dancing, lolly-weilding villain from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is probably the scariest thing we have EVER seen.
Michael Myers (Halloween)
Never let Jamie Lee Curtis babysit.
“I want to play a game”. Yes, we want to play a game too, something nice and light like Resident Evil not waking up chained to a toilet with a saw! Actually, this little guy is not so scary, it’s the thought of being told off by an overly enthusiastic geriatric that gives us the heebie jeebies.
Chucky (Child’s Play)
The problem we have with Chucky is not the fact that there is the spirit of a serial killer trapped inside a three-foot high rubber toy, but what parent in their right mind would buy their kids a really creepy looking dolly in dungarees anyway? The 80s have a lot to answer for.
