Scariest Movie Villains

Buzz In: Who's the Scariest Movie Villain of All Time?

Try to muster up some courage, because we're about to discuss something that may spook you: scary villains! With Halloween just days away, we've been polling you on everything from your favorite horror flick to the movies that scarred you, but what would a truly frightening film be without its main tormentor?

Freddy Krueger is pretty scary, though Jack Nicholson is particularly terrifying when he bursts through the door in The Shining. However, no one creeps me out quite like Samara in The Ring (I always freak when she crawls through the TV!). Their chilling scenes live on in infamy, but tell me, who is your pick for scariest movie villain of all time?

I still find Mr. Dark from "Something Wicked This Way Comes" to be one of the creepiest villains I have ever seen.

Well, Pennywise the clown terrified me as a child, but as an adult I have a different opinion. Javier Bardem as Anton Chigurh scares the shit out of me. His totally dead stare with absolutely no feeling behind it... oh my gosh, he gives me major willies. Part of what makes him so scary is that the character is realistic. Evil clowns, ghosts, monsters, werewolves-- those are fictional. But there's really sociopaths like Anton Chigurh out there! Scccaaaarrrrryyyyy!

The girl from the grudge and the poltergeist clown! Also, visually, the killers from the strangers.
