A cop trying to stop a cyber-terrorist on the 4th of July, a charismatic smuggler who helps to save a princess and the galaxy, a maniac in a hockey mask going around and murdering teenagers, a mother trying to save her child from a violent abuser, and a robot sent from the future to protect the savior of mankind: what do these individuals have in common? They are all memorable characters from various movies, and they are only a portion of the vast array of memorable characters from different genres that appear throughout movie history.
One of the things that really make a character memorable, is their ability to leave the viewer with a lasting impression; and a character can do that in many ways. A character can be remembered for being funny, emotionally damaged, heroic, villainous, adorable, scary, kind, violent, and creepy. There have been many creepy movie characters, characters who range from being somewhat creepy to those that are creepy as hell; and whether it is because of their appearance or their actions, they are characters that should always be remembered for being creepy in one way or another. Here is a list of 10 creepy movie characters you forgot about.
10 Isaac - Children of the Corn
9 Willy Wonka - Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
8 Garland Greene - Con Air
7 Damien - The Omen
Throughout movie history, there have been many creepy children, and Damien from the original Omen movie, is one of the oldest and most iconic of them all. Damien is the Antichrist, and has an array of individuals who watch over him, including a hellhound and a murderous nanny. In the movie, he may not know that he is the son of Satan, or that he possesses supernatural powers, but people around him still end up dead. Harvey Stephens, who played Damien, did a great job of maintaining Damien’s sweet face throughout the movie, but it is his cold eyes and blank stares that make him one of the creepiest kids in movie history.
6 Frank Booth - Blue Velvet
5 Pennywise - It
4 Jame Gumb "Buffalo Bill" - Silence of the Lambs
3 Norman Bates - Psycho
2 Frank Hallet - The Little Girl who Lives Down the Lane
1 The Child Catcher - Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
The creepiest movie character that has ever appeared on screen has to be The Child Catcher from the movie Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The movie revolves around a pair of siblings who find a woman that their father falls in love with; they end up becoming a family with a flying car. There is an evil Baron and Baroness in the movie however, who want the family's car, so they use The Child Catcher, whose job is to capture children, to abduct the family’s kids. Not only does his physical appearance make him a creepy site to behold, but the way he skips around, and lures out children by ringing a bell and promising to give them sweets is also very creepy, even by today’s standards.
