40. Marlowe - 30 Days of Night

Of all the menacing vampires that took off on a 30-day all-you-can-eat human buffet in Alaska, where it's night for a full month, Marlowe was the worst. His hands, mouth full off pointy teeth, finger nails and suit all reeked of evil. Even if you were his servant, you couldn't trust him.

41. The Scientist - Dark Crystal

All of the Skeksis were horrible beasts, but the worst of all was The Scientist, for this creature operated the Essence draining machine, that would drain your will to live, thus making you their gray-haired slave.


42. The Candyman - Candyman

With silky smooth voice and a hook for a hand, Tony Todd made us all wimp out in front of the mirror after calling his name for the second time.


43. Nicodemus- The Secret of NIMH

It may be a kids' movie and book, but the cartoon creation of Nicodemus the light-eyed rat creature scares the living crap out of me, I think some of it has to do with his full body mustache and warty hands.


44. Jason Voorhees - Friday The 13th

Hockey mask-wearing Jason doesn't even show up in the first Friday the 13th movie, but after that, he's a full-blown movie monster, killing any camper who crosses his path. He's also had a rather stories history even as horror icons go: he did a stint in Hell, fought Freddy Krueger, and has even killed aboard a spaceship.

45. Gage Creed - Pet Sematary

Gage plays on a parent's worst fear — losing a child — then twists the knife even deeper. Brought back from the dead by his desperate, grieving father, Gage just wants to play a game of "eviscerate your entire family," proving that sometimes dead really is better.


46. The Midwich Cuckoos - Village of The Damned

Mysterious pregnancies are frightening enough, but when they result in a crop of identical, blond-haired children, it's time to head for the hills. These precocious little alien hybrids are the ultimate in parenting horror: sociopathic, incapable of love, and able to control people's actions with their glowing, unbreakable stares.

47. Cloverfield's Babies - Cloverfield

They are lightning fast, and will make you explode. The best things about these little guys is that they made NYC an even bigger mess than it would be with a freaky giant monster, because hiding was no longer an option.


48. Khan - Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan

Tell me you weren't shaking in your undies when Khan ordered the Ceti Eel to be inserted into Chekov's ear. He's frightening because he's smarter, stronger and has nothing to lose and boundless hatred.


49. Kurt Barlow - Salem's Lot

Reggie Nalder's Barlow is probably the most memorable thing about this little TV series, well his vampire teeth and the evil floating vampire child. It's a brilliant makeup job that creeps everyone out the first time it's viewed!


50. Jareth the Goblin King - Labyrinth

As the King of the Goblins, Bowie's Jareth is a singing, dancing, package wielding magic man, kicking his minions and challenging pretty little Jennifer Connelly with his brain teasers placing him firmly in the middle of the scariest list. I mean, he changes from an owl to a mullet man complete with codpiece (which may be the best/creepiest part). In fact this whole spot could just be Jareth's Junk.
