Re: Favorite horror franchise villain

Kind of depends on what Iím in the mood for honestly. I think ultimately I would say Jason as I find the Friday the 13th films the most fun. Chucky and Michael Myers are up there too though.

I actually think Freddy is my least favorite of the big ones. For some reason I never got as into the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. There are actually a couple sequels Iíve never even watched or havenít seen in ages.

Re: Favorite horror franchise villain

Also what an unimaginative list of poll options.


Pinhead? Leatherface? Ghostface? Dracula? Norman Bates? Hannibal Lecter? Samara? The Creeper? The Tall Man? Chucky? Leprechaun?

As soon as I saw the thread, I knew it would be "Freddy" getting votes *yawn*

Nobody can beat Death. Except for Bill and Ted.

Re: Favorite horror franchise villain

Halloween ‘78 is my second favorite horror film and probably the best slasher of all time. However Friday the 13th is my favorite franchise.

Re: Favorite horror franchise villain

Freddy Krueger used to be my favorite. Could be scary, could be funny, the movies were fairly imaginative. Chucky was a close second, for similar reasons, although I could have done without Seed of Chucky. Upon rewatching most of them, I started liking Jason more and more. Just a relentless machine. Pinhead is high on the list too, but gets lost in a ton of pretty bad sequels.

Maybe you should start your own poll?

I pretty much agree with everything you said. Jason remains my favorite, as regardless of the film, I tend to just sit back and enjoy them. They're just fun, and even some of the ones constantly derided, like Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan, are actual favourites of mine. Michael Myers would probably be next, and that's mainly because while it does have the best movie out of all the characters listed (the original, of course), it also has certain sequels that I despise and won't ever watch again. Chucky would be up there, too, even though his movies are also hit or miss.

Freddy, I just never really got. I actually spent one weekend a few years ago binging the entire series (aside from the remake) and it just never really clicked. Not sure why, even the original doesn't do much for me. I have to give Robert Englund props, as he does do a good job, but the whole "killing you in your sleep" just doesn't frighten me...

I did like the inclusion of "Death" in the poll, as I do really get a kick outta the Final Destination movies...they're always inventive and just a blast to watch, especially amongst friends with a few beers and a couple of joints...

Thank.you for the pointers - that gives me ideas of other movies to watch.

Mea culpa on Ghostface. That was dumb of me. That also would've been my choice...

No love for Victor Crowley? Aside from a pretty badass horror villain name, heís a pretty great villain in an underrated horror franchise.

Michael Myers. I never cared much for Jason. Freddy was great at first, but by the end of the franchise, it was basically a comedy.
