This is a GREAT list! Outside of Leatherface, there's no other "horror" flick characters here... they're all great scary flick/suspense characters. We SFers have stellar taste in scare!! :grin: :grin:

In my view the "horror" genre are the slasher flicks, where multitudes of people are dismembered and blood spews in a continual river. The Exorcist was more of a "scary" movie than horror, by my standards. :beatnik:

Rocky got both his noms in the TT.

The man knows scary! :shades:

Haha actually I had three, but Mad Alex didn't make it.

No worries though! Two out of three ain't bad, and I think we've got an awesome list. Hannibal definitely should be right where he is.
