But only a few have had continued success.
Who is your favorite?
A question I've asked myself often. Being a fan of them all, I'd like to throw in my .02 cents
1.Jason Voorhees- Jason is often misunderstood. He's thought of as a lumbering dolt who can't think, but is brutally savage in his murders. The
truth is that he's really a sensative artist who truly likes to draw an emotional response from his heart.
In Ft13 4 Jason crucifies a victim up to the back door frame of a cabin. He understands that this is the only exit, and to find a loved one pinned in
such a fashion would draw forth a huge emotional response. Between this and his frequent head crushing, and bodies flying through windows, Jason
Voorhees is truly an artistic soul.
2.Freddy Krueger- A violent soul who is not very scary IMO. I suppose it's because every time he dies in his movies, it's always at the hands of a
teenage girl. In the first movie he was brought down by a teenage girl using the same tactics that McCauly Culkin used to fend off Joe Pesci in Home
Alone. Not very threatening if you ask me.
3.Michael Myers- I originally thought of MM was a sissy. He always walked so slowly, and always in a straight line. As long as he was in eyeshot,
you could out run him, then hop in a car and take off. As long as you weren't related to him, you could bounce and not have to worry.
But then they brought in that Samhain thing, which brought a new interesting twist to things. However, how scary can a guy be when Busta Rhymes can
Kung Foo his ass to death.
4.Candyman- When I first saw this movie I was scared stiffer than I've ever been. I covered every mirror with a towel, and barely slept. Granted, I
was 10, but still, I was a tough kid. Anyway, he's another ghostly charecter. I often don't understand where his ghostlyness ends, and his
physical self begin. I mean, if he's a ghost, then why does he need a home to return to? How can he die in a bonfire? All of that makes me wonder.
But, he's a Clive Barker charecter. I love Clive Barker. Hellraiser was my all time favorite horror, and if Pinhead or any Centabite were an
option, they would win hands down.
5.Leatherface- I don't like to trash any particular groups or anything, but between Leatherface, and The Hills Have Eyes, I'm scared of Texas and
deserts. No way I can drive cross country. I was disappointed with the new prequel. I didn't thing it was a proper origin story, so this dropped
Leatherface's overall respect.
So, my order,
