The Thing from another world is one of the most physically petrifying monsters in cinema history. As if being trapped in Antarctica wasn't bad enough, you have this shape-shifting extraterrestrial running amok, killing and impersonating your friends and even your dogs. The Thing has 20 kills across three movies.
Jeepers Creepers has one of the darkest endings of all horror movies, making its monster that much more intimidating. Not that he needed much help. As if his looks didn't scare you, you'll be uncomfortable to know this thing chalked up 20 kills in two movies.
Saying his name in the mirror of a pitch black bathroom was something most of us weren't brave enough to do as kids. And that was before we even saw the movies and knew what he was capable of. Candy Man is a vengeful spirit with a hook for a hand and can summon swarms of bees from his body. These were effective weapons, as he killed 22 people over three films.
The Hellraiser films are disturbing even for fright-flick aficionados. The leader of the Cenobites (other-worldly demons doling out pain and pleasure), Pinhead, has a face that instantly intrigues and intimidates. Pinhead popped out of Lemarchand's Box in nine films, leading to 35 kills.
John Kramer was the first person to hold the title of the "Jigsaw Killer" from the Saw movie, but he was far from the last. He died in the third movie, but had other traps and proteges waiting to continue his legacy. Many killers need to keep coming back from the dead to continue slaying. Not Jigsaw, who lays claim to 87 kills over seven movies, most of which came after he was dead.
While he's appeared in films that would mostly be considered psychological thrillers, there's no denying Hannibal Lecter is one of the most terrifying villains in cinema history. His methods for murder are more maniacal than most anything done by literal monsters on this list. The not-so-good doctor has amassed 98 victims over four films and the TV series Hannibal.
This silent psychopath has been busy since the night he came home. While he prefers using a butcher knife, he's also used farm equipment and even his bare hands on multiple occasions. Haddonfield's housed homicide on Halloween to the tune of 111 kills over 10 movies.
This one is a bit of a surprise. The titular villain from the 1933 classic is responsible for more deaths than almost any other horror antagonist. The sociopath offed an entire train just because he could. This lunatic scored a truly horrifying 123 kills in just one film.
When it comes to murderous monsters, the creature from Camp Crystal Lake is in a league all his own. Jason Voorhees has hacked up so many horny teenagers it's hard to keep count. Multiple estimates place his kill count at over 200 across 13 films (although, he didn't actually kill anyone in the first Friday The 13th movie). So give it up for the most prolific predator in horror movie history. It's no wonder he's such an icon, appearing in everything from music videos to engagement photos.
