Stephen “Flyboy” Andrews

Stephen “Flyboy” Andrews is one of the main characters of the zombie classic Dawn of the Dead, and one of the most iconic movie zombies after a tragic escape leads to him becoming infected. He then leads the zombies to attack the film’s final survivors unsuccessfully.

Krampus

Krampus is a supernatural entity from German folklore and the titular main antagonist of the 2015 Christmas horror-comedy film of the same name. Krampus is an evil version of Santa Claus who punishes naughty people on Christmas.

Aaron Boone

Aaron Boone is the protagonist of Clive Barker’s cult classic fantasy/horror film Nightbreed, based on his novel Cabal. Suffering from nightmares of monsters, he discovers an underground city called Midian, and he is reborn a monster. Now he must protect this world and become its new leader, Cabal.

Pinhead

Pinhead is main villain and leader of the Cenobites from the Hellraiser film series, based on the book The Hellbound Heart by Clive Barker. While there are Pinhead masks for sale, I believe none of them do true justice to the character and that he is best shown through make-up. Listed here are the basic requirements, but for little details and how to actually create Pinhead’s face I highly recommend watching this excellent Pinhead make-up tutorial

Amanda Young

Amanda Young (Shawnee Smith), also known as Mandy, is one of the main villains of the Saw film franchise and the apprentice of Jigsaw. Her wearing the Reverse Bear Trap is considered one of the franchise’s most memorable and iconic images. Be sure to cut the sleeves off of the sweater and strap them on your upper arms.

Dr. Decker

Dr. Decker is the slasher villain of the cult classic fantasy/horror film Nightbreed (played by legendary horror director David Cronenberg) and the novel Cabal by Clive Barker of Hellraiser and Candyman fame. He is a serial killer psychologist who convinces his patients that they are serial killers before reporting them to the police and having them killed.

Twisty the Clown

Twisty is a disgraced clown played by John Carroll Lynch in American Horror Story: Freak Show who uses increasingly twisted methods to regain his position as an entertainer of children. He wears a makeshift prosthetic mask nearly as terrifying as the disfigured face beneath.

Ben Tramer

Ben Tramer is a minor character mentioned in Halloween I and featured in one of the most memorable scenes of Halloween II. He is a young man who gets mistaken for Michael Myers
and as a result gets chased by police and ultimately killed when a police car rams him, causing an explosion.

Norman Bates

Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins) is the villain of the classic Alfred Hitchcock film Psycho and the novel it’s based on as well as the TV series Bates Motel. Commonly cited as the first “modern slasher” character, Bates is still to this day one of the most insane and mentally complex villains in all of horror. Bates himself is harmless, but due to his split personality he “becomes” his psychotic dead mother (whom he had an incestuous relationship with) who murders any female she believes is getting close to Norman.

Leslie Vernon

Leslie Vernon is the focus and antagonist of the cult classic mockumentary comedy-horror Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon. He is a wannabe serial killer inspired by the likes of Jason, Michael, and Freddy (who in this world really exist). What he lacks in physical power he makes up for in his cunning planning and setting up of traps for his would-be victims. Don’t forget to wear and tear his clothes. Leslie Vernon walks barefoot, so it’s recommended that you wear sandals when not posing for pictures. Black face paint for the black circles around his eyes.
