Top favorite female characters

My favorite female characters in Horror.
People who added this item 652 Average listal rating (393 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.7
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.
Orlok's rating:
People who added this item 443 Average listal rating (251 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 7.8
The Innocents (1961)
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.
Orlok's rating:
People who added this item 184 Average listal rating (108 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 5.9
Lady Sylvia Marsh



Seductive, vicious and actually pretty funny, Lady Sylvia Marsh is one memorable villain.
Orlok's rating:
People who added this item 343 Average listal rating (191 ratings) 8.3 IMDB Rating 8
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.
Orlok's rating:
People who added this item 367 Average listal rating (235 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.1
Mary Henry



A psychologically ill character, that's feeling like she's between life and death.
Orlok's rating:
People who added this item 879 Average listal rating (565 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.7
Candyman (1992)
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 1713 Average listal rating (996 ratings) 7.9 IMDB Rating 7.9
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.
Orlok's rating:
People who added this item 792 Average listal rating (511 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.2
Re-Animator (1985)
Dr. Herbert West



A character that's so ruthless and cynical, he actually becomes quite likable. The definitive anti-hero.
Orlok's rating:
People who added this item 592 Average listal rating (401 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.2
The Hitcher (1986)
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.
Orlok's rating:
People who added this item 2850 Average listal rating (1845 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.5
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.
Orlok's rating:
People who added this item 138 Average listal rating (93 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.2
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.
Orlok's rating:
People who added this item 938 Average listal rating (590 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.5
Dracula (1931)
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.

Scariest scenes

Some of the scariest scenes I've ever seen.
People who added this item 214 Average listal rating (120 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7
Noroi (2005)
I can't choose just one scene from this, so here's a couple of scenes.

Orlok's rating:
People who added this item 275 Average listal rating (170 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7
The ending to the drop of water segment.


Orlok's rating:
People who added this item 748 Average listal rating (428 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 7.2
Spoiler! The ending.

Orlok's rating:
People who added this item 375 Average listal rating (243 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 6.4
The Nurse station scene. One of the most effective scares ever.

Orlok's rating:
People who added this item 158 Average listal rating (95 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.4
The Sentinel (1977)
The stranger in the dark scene. Really chilling.

Orlok's rating:
People who added this item 616 Average listal rating (367 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.4
Session 9 (2001)
Lights out!

Best deaths

Brutal, inventive and disturbing deaths.
People who added this item 414 Average listal rating (273 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 6.8
Zombie (1979)
I did not see that coming.

Orlok's rating:
People who added this item 852 Average listal rating (562 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.1
He had a lot of guts.

WTF?

No explanation needed.
People who added this item 146 Average listal rating (92 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 6.1
Pieces (1982)
Uuuuummm...

Orlok's rating:
People who added this item 123 Average listal rating (72 ratings) 5.8 IMDB Rating 5.6
Xtro (1982)
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.
People who added this item 349 Average listal rating (162 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 5.8
Inspired by a near death experience, this is absolute nihilism in art form.

Orlok's rating:
People who added this item 540 Average listal rating (293 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 6.9
It's Eraserhead on speed, with metal fetishism and an anti-industrialization message.



Orlok's rating:
People who added this item 1590 Average listal rating (931 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 6.6
Antichrist (2009)
A gruesome film about grief and the belief that evil is gender-related.

Orlok's rating:
People who added this item 56 Average listal rating (35 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 5.6
Prophecy (1979)
An underrated eco-horror film that's actually really well-made, even though it can be a bit silly at times.

Orlok's rating:
People who added this item 173 Average listal rating (102 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.1
Really underrated psychological-horror with a very claustrophobic setting.

Orlok's rating:
People who added this item 67 Average listal rating (27 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 6.1
Intense and entertaining horror, about Peter Weller fighting a huge monster-rat.

B-Movie Corner

So bad, they're good!
People who added this item 76 Average listal rating (54 ratings) 5.2 IMDB Rating 5.2
Slugs (1988)
Funniest horror film, ever!

It's so gloriously cheesy and entertaining, and everyone should watch it!

Orlok's rating:
People who added this item 222 Average listal rating (169 ratings) 3.9 IMDB Rating 2.9
Troll 2 (1990)
"They're eating her, and then they're gonna eat me! OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOD!"


Christopher Lee as a werewolf hunter, titanium bullets, Euro-werewolves, and a nude Sybil Danning as the queen of the werewolves...

Do I need to say more?

Absolutely hilarious exploitation flick, with a man-ape-monster and an Ilsa-wannabe.



Orlok's rating:
People who added this item 37 Average listal rating (23 ratings) 4.5 IMDB Rating 3.9
A surprisingly entertaining film about a giant spider.



Orlok's rating:

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.
