October is known as the best season of the year. Yes, I’m talking about Spooky Season. We’re all in with the thrills and chills this month brings. So when you sit down and put on a movie to get into the scary movie vibe, which horror icon do you turn to? Our fans have given us their favorite characters that they can’t get enough of.

Jason Voorhees

Find him as the centerpiece in the Friday the 13th franchise and spin-offs including Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday, Jason X and Freddy vs. Jason.

Freddy Krueger

SPEAKING of Freddy vs. Jason, bring on the other half of this duo. The serial killer who uses a gloved hand with razors is front and center in the A Nightmare on Elm Street 

Michael Meyers

The Halloween King. Literally. Horror’s most iconic figure is creating absolute chaos in Halloween (2018), Halloween (1978), Halloween: Resurrection, Halloween II, Halloween H20 and Halloween Kills which is now in theaters.


Enter the creepiest doll that lives….or doesn’t live. She first made her debut in The Conjuring franchise and then broke her way into stardom in her own title spin-offs (Annabelle, Annabelle: Creation, and Annabelle Comes Home).


The clown that terrorized all of our dreams, Pennywise. The red balloon in It and It: Chapter 2 triggers chaos, evil and most importantly the fear that a clown is close by.


You can’t have a Saw saga without a Jigsaw. When you see a white face with red spirals plastered to his cheeks, just know that psychological tourture is coming your way.


Say it. Well, actually don’t say Candyman’s name. You know what consequences that follow.


This guy is literally running around Texas with masks made of human skin. Just reading that makes my skin crawl. See this mentally unstable mass murderer in Texas Chainsaw Massacre series.


Watching Chucky at a young age had me convinced that all my dolls were going to come alive in the middle of the night. Watch him at your own risk.


When you hear the word ‘Hellraiser’, there’s no doubt that you are thinking about Pinhead. As the most famous cenobite, you should know that torturing is the name of his game.


He walks around with a black hood and a white rubber mask, but his identity isn’t that easy to figure out. Watch his taunting, threatening and all around terror in Scream, 2, 3 and 4. And prepare yourself for Scream 5 coming in January 2022.

Honorable Mentions

Cady Heron

I know that Mean Girls isn’t a horror movie, but Cady really is the ultimate villain. And no, you cannot change my mind.

The shark from Jaws

If the shark that abruptly showed up in Jaws with suspenseful music in tow didn’t show up in your nightmares, you’re lying to yourself.
