Horror movie villains are unique. If you create a good one, after one movie, they become icons. Just look at how Michael Myers has stood the test of time in the horror stakes. Even now, after almost 40 years, people still consider him one of the scariest horror villains ever created.
Malcolm Chisel: psychopathic “baby” killer is a man who's lost touch with reality. As a weekly hobby he kidnaps little girls, tortures them and then brutally chops them into pieces. To him they are his little darlings, beautiful toys to be played with and then dismantled.

Grab your fedora and unfurl those wings, because the Creeper is back. After clawing its way out of development hell and being cocooned in a wave of controversy thanks to director Victor Salva, the forgotten threequel is finally making its way to cinemas.

Don't close the toy box just yet — iconic horror legend Chucky is back for more murder and mayhem.

The tiny terror returns for his seventh installment when Cult of Chucky gets a direct-to-video release in October this year.
Away from Chucky, chainsaws, and Crystal Lake, one name sticks out in horror for haunting our nightmares since 1984. With the eerie voices of little girls singing nursery rhymes in your ears, horror legend #RobertEnglund is back as Freddy Krueger for one more spin in the makeup chair. No, sadly this isn't another A Nightmare On Elm Street film, but it is about as close as we are ever going to get.
Cut back to December 2013, i saw an ad for a new Horror Shortfilm Competition called "Who's There" asking for filmmakers to create a creepy short in no more then 3 minutes!
