Who are the most ruthless horror villains in the genre?
While there are tons of notable villains who have crept their way into our horror lovin’ hearts over the year, not all these grotesque antihero’s get the same grueling recognition for their blood-curdling scares. That’s why we wanted to shed some moonlight on a few creepy mischief-makers who’re devilish, defiant and possess a rather impressing body account. So, let’s take a look at a couple of bone-afide killers who deserve an extra round of gruesome applause.
Regardless of whether you’ve seen The Silence of the Lambs, chances are that you’ve heard of Hannibal Lecter, an iconic name in the horror genre. While many people nowadays are desensitized to the idea of a cannibalistic serial killer, the truth is this ruthless character was actually based on a real-life doctor who was convicted of murdering and chopping up his lover. How’s that for a frightful fact? Needless to say, while most killers tend to follow the gore-fest and blood trail of timeless classic slashers such as Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers, though, Hannibal Lector takes on a grim new role — a highly intelligent, mannered man who could just as easily be your next-door neighbor. Known for punishing and mutilating his victims, who wouldn’t want to have horror collectibles resembling this fearsome foe?
This unhinged sociopath is rather fond of chasing innocent bystanders and if we tallied up his misdemeanors through the entire Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise, he has managed to strike a body count of over 60 people. Now, that’s a lot of new faces! Needless to say, although Leatherface has kept our hearts pumping through the decades with his frightening facades of chainsaw-wielding suspense, we think that he deserves some extra recognition. After all, it must be incredibly tough to rundown your victims carrying a heavy-weighted chainsaw! So, as a way to honor his intense, otherworldly horror sequences, we’re selling a wide selection of horror collectibles to enable fans to enact their own sequels.
No one really knows where this ancient, mysterious demon came from, but we do know that once he picks up the scent of his prey, nothing with stop his relentless, indestructible pursuit to get his claws on them. Essentially, the creeper is immortal and he’s always on the hunt for some new organs to replace his old failing ones. His undying nature and everlasting abilities make him a rather ruthless horror villain that you wouldn’t want to get caught spying on. So, that’s why he made our list! As merciless and frightening as the creeper is, real horror lovers won’t be able to taste the fear, but they can’t help but wonder where he got his peepers.
