The Ten Creepiest Masked Killers of All-Time
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)
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)
4. Jigsaw Pig Mask (Saw)
3. Jason Voorhees (Friday the 13th Series)
2. Leatherface (Texas Chainsaw Massacre Series)
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.
