Top favorite female characters

My favorite female characters in Horror.
Kayoko Saeki



In my opinion, one of the scariest characters of all time. The sounds, the movement and the look. Everything about her is terrifying.

Miss Giddens



A really likable character with caring and motherly instincts that's put to the test. Deborah Kerr did an amazing job portraying the character.

Lady Sylvia Marsh



Seductive, vicious and actually pretty funny, Lady Sylvia Marsh is one memorable villain.

Yuki Onna



A very unique character, since she's neither a villain, nor a heroic character. She feels just like a force of nature. She's ruthless, yet sympathetic.

Mary Henry



A psychologically ill character, that's feeling like she's between life and death.

Helen Lyle



A well-written character that's likable and sympathetic. Along with Miss Giddens, she's one of the only true heroines on this list.

Top favorite male characters

My favorite male characters in Horror.
People who added this item 1603 Average listal rating (915 ratings) 7.9 IMDB Rating 8
Count Orlok



With the look of a vermin, Count Orlok is one of the most unique looking and fiendish versions of Dracula. He's got no human traits left, which you can see by the bug-like way he acts and moves.

Max Schreck did an absolutely phenomenal job portraying this plague-spreading monster. Also, this is my favorite character of all time.

Dr. Herbert West



A character that's so ruthless and cynical, he actually becomes quite likable. The definitive anti-hero.

John Ryder



While you could argue if The Hitcher is a horror film or a thriller, something that I'm absolutely sure of, is that John Ryder is something that's straight out of a horror movie. He won't stop until one of you are dead, and he's absolutely demented.

Freddy Krueger



One of the most vicious killers in film.

The thing that makes Freddy seem more vicious than Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers, is his demented humor and personality.

I will admit that this character got a little bit too silly later in the series, but in the first 3 films + New Nightmare, he's gold.

Tourist Trap (1979)
Mr. Slausen



A sick, demented murderer, but at the same time, a sympathetic maniac that doesn't fully understand what he's doing.

That's what makes this character really disturbing and frightening, since you respond to his actions with mixed emotions.

Renfield



One of the most batshit insane characters in horror.

Renfield isn't really a villain or a hero, he's just a character that just is there, yet he still steals the show whenever he's in a scene.

The Birthing scene.

I won't post it here though, since I'm pretty sure it's against the rules to post a video where a chick births a full-grown man.

Some recommendations

I thought I'd post some recommendations to some lesser known, yet great horror films.

Inspired by a near death experience, this is absolute nihilism in art form.

It's Eraserhead on speed, with metal fetishism and an anti-industrialization message.

A list where I put the top different things in horror.

I will try to only choose pure horror films, and stay away from Sci-fi and Thrillers.

GREAT LIST! The screenshot from Prophecy really speaks to me! Hard to believe that somebody else actually watched Xtro! So many great scenes: The black panther in the white hallway, the stick that blows up - and yes - a woman giving birth to a grown man. I recommend you watch Xtro Exposed, where the director thrashes his own film.
