Top Five Creepiest Movie Characters

October 31, 2013

Hello all. Mark here.

Today is our Horror Halloween bonanza! If you haven’t voted in our horror tournament click here! If you need some horror suggestions from Netflix look no further. The final post today is about the movie characters that creep me out. They are a no good gang of trouble makers who creeped the heck out of me.

Enjoy! Comment!

1. Jack Black from The Holiday.

I am a big Jack Black fan but his character creeps me out. Black tries to play a normal guy and tones down his normal shtick. He oggles Kate Winslet creepily, as you can see in the picture. Also, the scene in Blockbuster video when he is making all the Jack Black “be do bop sha bop sha bang” noises never sat right with me. There is something about Jack Black not trying to be Jack Black that weirded me out.

2. Leatherface

Big, dumb and eats people. I remember watching this with five of my friends during my senior year of high school. We were pugnacious vandals who didn’t have a worry in the world. At the end of the movie none of us said a word. We just walked to our cars and drove home. I remember I hit a red light in a wooded area and was convinced a manic wearing a skin mask would chainsaw through my Dodge Shadow. The final scene of him spinning around with the chainsaw is unforgettable.

3. The Troll from Ernest Scared Stupid.

This is not a joke. The dude scared the crap out of me. This is the only movie to ever give me nightmares. Freddy stayed on Elm Street. Jason haunts Camp Crystal Lake. The troll takes kids at random. He misses one kid and takes a skate boarder. Also, he sneaks onto beds and turns girls into wooden dolls.

It got to the point where I was considering carrying milk around with me. I disliked riding my bike around wooded areas….all because of that damn troll.


4. Buffalo Bill-Silence of the Lambs

I know this isn’t the Bill from the movie. I just didn’t want to post a picture of him because he creeps me out.

People always go with Hannibal Lector…Wrong! He was too sophisticated. Bill was a creepy dude who put women in holes and made them put on lotion. They needed Lector to catch him. I find it creepier that this man could exist. Not some intellectual brain eating bore. I wish I had never watched this movie as a child. Whenever, I see the actor on Monk reruns I get a little queasy

5. The Blair Witch

The Blair Witch is a total jerk. The final shot where that guy is standing in the corner waiting to be killed and the lady gets crunched is really tense stuff. That visual has stayed in my mind for years.  Combine dense woods, the occult and camera-induced nausea and the Blair Witch really gets into your head.

Who are your creepiest charcters?

    I find the hitchhiker character in Texas Chainsaw to be the creepiest of the family (or maybe granddad, he’s pretty bad too). Leatherface might be the scariest, because he just seems to see killing people with a chainsaw as a hobby he doesn’t think twice about, it’s pretty much his only character trait and his will to kill seems to be the closes thing he has to thoughts, but the hitchhiker comes a tad bit closer to being a character who can exist in human society, but just always says and does the creepiest thing possible once around other people–while seeming like he actually kind of wants to fit in (but not enough not to eat those same people once the opportunity presents itself).
