We could try to say something all funny and witty right here, but let’s be honest: this list will probably give you nightmares and maybe even cost you some extra couch time with your therapist. Now excuse us while we go hide under our desk and sob uncontrollably. Here’s to never sleeping with the lights off again.
7. Thomas, The Orphanage
This is reason number one NOT to have children.
6. Smiley from Smiley

5. Ghostface, Scream

4. Alice, Sweet Alice
That’s one way to make Brooke Shields unattractive.
3. The Purge
2. Edith Scob, Eyes Without a Face
The face that inspired Michael Myers… and countless nightmares.
1. Leatherface, Texas Chainsaw Massacre
