So I thought I would share with you what I consider my top when it comes to scary movie characters or creatures. I do not care so much for the gore and blood, although a few characters that embodied this did make the cut. But when a character gets in your head, then that is a true success! So with no further ado…
10 – Creature from the Black Lagoon. This is why I stopped swimming for one whole summer in lakes and open water.
9 – Wolfman – his transformation alone looks so incredibly painful. Who would want all their bones rearranged every month?!
8 – Dracula – the perpetual man of the night. We all think immortality would be pretty cool. And that may be. But think about never seeing the sun again or walking on a beach. Not to mention to never taste food again. Oh how I would miss my burgers.
7 – Mike Myers – The mask that gives him the appearance of a total unfeeling or caring person as he slashes his way thru you. And who can forget that theme song (Although I do believe it’s a knock off of my number one pick)
6 – The Blob. No body, no bones, no eyes, no mouth – (It’s amazing how much I still enjoy jello shooters since watching this movie)
I’m not sure if this theme song invokes fear or an incredible urge to head to the beach and make martini’s.
5 – Frankenstein – You have body that is bits and pieces of other people. Don’t pull that…it’s not a string…it’s holding my arm on!
4 – Vincent Price – This man can lift one eyebrow and you know you’re about to be axed. The Pit and the Pendulum, House of Wax, Theatre of Blood just to name a few. He is also the only true person that made this list.
3 – Giant Ants – it was a movie THEM! And it all starts with a little girls screaming Them!! It tapped into a fear of “what can go wrong using atomic energy?” Well a lot it seems! Giant ants! Does anyone remember my carpenter ant fiasco?!
2 – Pinhead – Oh yeah..we all remember the Lament Configuration. “Unbearable, isn’t it? The suffering of strangers, the agony of friends. There is a secret song at the center of the world, Joey, and its sound is like razors through flesh.”
1 – Reagan from Exorcist – having a little voice in your head is one thing, but having the devil take over your body – Freaky! Best theme music EVER!
