If you’re a fan of horror movies (we’re not) and love to watch them late at night (we don’t), then you probably don’t get scared (we do). But even if you have a stomach of steel and can deal with whatever horrors these movies throw at you, the baddies always scare you… just a little. It’s commonplace for the baddies in these movies to be ugly, deformed, and downright creepy – and they ALWAYS make an impression. Some of the baddies will give you nightmares, others will utterly creep you out, and others will make you want to run away screaming (this happens all too often). Nevertheless, this just means they’re doing their jobs correctly, because at the end of the day, all of these horror movie baddies are all played by actors – we hope.
Most of the time, our favorite (or least favorite) baddies will be played by normal, everyday actors that simply don some pretty impressive makeup, a scary voice, and some wacky outfits. Of course, this information doesn’t help us when we’re screaming our heads off and punching the next person who walks into our room in the face (yep, it’s happened), but take a look at what the baddies from horror movies look like in real life…

Daveigh Chase as Samara in The Ring
Who else couldn’t sleep for a week after watching The Ring? That face, though. Yep, it’s the face that has haunted our dreams ever since we watched this movie. Samara Morgan is the main Antagonist in The Ring, and was the ghost of a mass murderer. Oh, brilliant. Samara’s party trick is that she literally has a death stare – one look, and she can disfigure her victims’ faces and kill them.
