#12 Michael Myers – Halloween (1978)

001-12-michael-myers-halloween-1978-2424d583d9b03b19c704cf5141826e19Let’s start simple with one we can all agree on, shall we? In 1978, John Carpenter defined modern, low-budget horror with the suspenseful slasher Halloween, featuring “The Shape” as the main villain. Barely on camera and adorned in a dark jumpsuit and harrowing white mask, “The Shape” was intended to represent evil as a force of nature, though later films added the name Michael Myers and fleshed out a backstory.

He’s easily one of the most iconic villains on the list, kind of like #3!
