The Ten Creepiest Masked Killers of All-Time

10. Mrs. Tredoni (Alice, Sweet Alice)

What’s creepy about this is how decidedly uncreepy it is in pieces. A giant cliched yellow rain slicker? A girly Valentine’s like mask? Who would have thought that pairing them together would create a slick, creepy killer?

9. Torso’s Masked Killer (Torso)

This guy is creepy because you have this outfit in your closet already. A knit cap with hand cut holes, leather gloves, this is the kind of person who shows up randomly in your backyard and scares the poop out of you.

8. Scream Killers (Scream)

The mask that launched a million Halloween costumes. What we like about the Scream mask that it has emotion frozen into it, rather than a lack of emotion like most blank slate masks. Definitely a cool look for a while that has totally been overplayed.

7. The Strangers (The Strangers)

The atmosphere of this movie helps out these masked killers who could be anyone you know and thats what makes them scary. Regular clothing, creepy children’s masks, a baghead, these aren’t who you want to see in the dark.

6. Satan (Satan’s Little Helper)

What I really like about this mask is that it is literally off the shelf of a Halloween costume store, and just as importantly, within the film it still works. This serial killer utilizes his costume store mask to blend in on Halloween and even feel up some boobs.

5. Michael Myers (Halloween)

All we need say is “Because a silent, pasty William Shatner is a scary William Shatner.” One of the all time classic masked killers, Myers’ pasty face peering down at your, with Shatner’s mane of hair sticking up, is terrifying.

4. Jigsaw Pig Mask (Saw)

While not occupying nearly enough screen time, the pig mask of the Saw series is a righteous mask that is actually the cut off head of a pig, not some latex or foam creation. Well, in the movie it’s real, at least, and that is awesome, bloody, and scary.

3. Jason Voorhees (Friday the 13th Series)

Perhaps the most recognized killer of all time, he also rocks one of the most memorable masks in film history. Whether you prefer his baghead look from Friday the 13th II or his classic hockey mask, there is no denying Jason is one bad mother set to tear the screen up again and again.

2. Leatherface (Texas Chainsaw Massacre Series)

When your mask is created from the severed flesh and faces of your victims, you’re an ultimate badass. This grotesque visage will haunt the nightmares of many a viewer long after the credits roll.

1. The Scarecrow (Dark Night of the Scarecrow)

You may not have heard of this made for TV horror special, but let me tell you, this Scarecrow is creepy as all hell. Huge, dark eye holes, a gaping maw of a mouth, armed with a pitchfork, this visage will stop you from cutting through the cornfields late at night.

There you have it – our ten creepiest masked killers in cinematic history. While we can and will argue their placements and wonder why some didn’t make the cut, I think we can all agree that this is a list of people you definitely do not want to catch a glimpse of down a dark alley.
