There’s nothing like a good scary movie, right? From the good acting, to the spooky setting and the creepy music, nothing is ever the same after you watch it. What’s even more interesting is that when kids play in a horror movie, everything becomes spookier than usual. Here are a few excellent examples o kids playing in horror movies, while we are turning to the main villains now.
The thing that really haunts an audience is actually the villain. No matter if it’s a ghost, ghoul, or a goblin, they are absolutely terrifying. But what do our favorite movie villains look like in real life?
Have you ever wondered what hides behind the menacing monster makeup look in reality? Well, wonder no more! Here is a collection of the greatest horror villains of all times for you in real life.
1. Samara from The Ring
Daveigh Chase was the creepy little girl who played Samara in 2002’s The Ring. Though she was climbing out of television sets back in the day, the model may be traversing the covers of fashion magazines in the near future. Keep a look out for her!
2. The Alien from Alien
Bolaji Badejo was the lucky man picked to portray the titular Alien in 1979. As you cn well imagine, walking around everyday on set in this skeletal suit must’ve been a pain in the neck. Literally!

3. Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
In 1974, casting agents hired Gunnar Hansen to play Leatherface in their upcoming horror movie, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It was indeed a perfect pick. But fans may not be aware of what Leatherface looks like nowadays.
4. Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street
Robert Englund has been creeping folks out since the ’80s as the unforgettable Freddy Krueger. Actually, he has been one of the few Hollywood men who made their entire career with a horror franchise. Way to go, Krueger!
5. Pennywise from It
Bill Skarsgård as the latest Pennywise in the recent revamp of Stephen King’s It is just startling. What’s even more shocking is how the man looks in his regular life. These two don’t even look like they could be the same person. Isn’t that just nuts?

6. Pinhead from Hellraiser
Doug Bradley can thank the writers and creators of the Hellraiser films for allowing him to play the epic Pinhead for all of the series. I am seriously thinking about the makeup process behind this get-up. It must have taken like forever.
7. Ghostface from Scream
Many ’90s kids still have nightmares about this awesome horror movie. The Ghostface mask, made popular by the man underneath it (Skeet Ulrich), is still one of the most bought Halloween costumes each year.
8. Regan MacNeil from The Exorcist
Many kids attribute their first nightmares to this classic spooky feature. Linda Blair, as the possessed Regan MacNeil, gave people the shivers.
9. Pale Man from Pan’s Labyrinth
There’s plenty of scary things to point out in Pan’s Labyrinth, but the character that shook us the most was Pale Man, played by Doug Jones. He looks so different in real life! We can hardly believe our eyes!

10. Kayako from The Grudge
Takako Fuji was the one responsible for making moviegoers jump in terror during The Grudge back in 2004. It’s great to see her all cleaned up though.

11. Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th (Parts 7-10)
While other actors have filled the many-holed mask of Jason Voorhees in the past, many still think that Kane Hodder’s interpretation of the murderer was the best. Do you agree?

12. The Predator from Predator 1 and 2
Kevin Peter Hall is the man responsible for making those awesome Predator movies what they are today! Kevin was able to flawlessly embody the essence of a bloodthirsty creature! People still can’t believe there was actually a person inside there the whole time!
