Horror isn’t just full of badass survivors, people who will do anything to make it through a violent, terrifying situation. Sometimes the most interesting and exciting character is the villain, the person who is causing all that chaos in the first place! So what better way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon than figuring out who might be the most badass amongst them?
Now, I could go with some pretty obvious choices, such as Jason or Freddy, but what fun would that be? Instead, I decided to go with some villains that might not get as much attention. Check out a few of my choices below and and then let me know some of yours!
Trick R Treat – Sam
Y’know why I love this little pumpkin-headed terror? Because he’s all about Halloween. You abide by the rules of one of the greatest holidays ever and you’re fine. But the second you break even a single one, you’re going to die in one of the most horrific ways imaginable. Plus, he gets creative with his kills. Maybe some dismemberment, maybe stabbing someone with a broken lollipop, maybe summon the ghosts of murdered children… It’s all gravy for him!
