#8: The Fisherman
The Fisherman was on a revenge killing spree, after a bunch of kids hit him with their car. He murdered his daughter's fiancé because she was in a car accident and the town including the Fisherman blamed David, her fiancé for it. After the Fisherman murdered David he was crossing the road and got hit by the kids, the Fisherman thought that the kids hit him because they saw him murder David, then the kids dumped his body in the ocean and a year after the body was disposed of, the Fisherman starts harassing and killing the teens that hit him in the car. The Fisherman comes in at number eight because he is just a man in a fisherman's costume with a fish hook, and a low body count. He is stealthy like Scream but has a lower body count. The Fisherman's body count comes in at 5 for the first installment.
#7: Harry Warden/Tom Hanniger
This maniac really shows us what survival and vengeance truly means. He murdered five of his own coworkers with an iconic miner's pickaxe just so that he could have the air they were breathing in a collapsed mine. He was in a coma for a year and still pulled through to wake up a year after the mine collapsed, just to seek revenge on the town. Tom Hanniger was blamed for the mine collapse and was also left for dead by three of his friends when they were attacked by a person in full miner gear. Warden ranks up to number seven because he is ruthless at seeking revenge and being a supernatural hallucination that only Tom can see. Hanniger is right along with Warden at seven as Tom is the true killer and Warden is only a hallucination. Tom went back to kill his friends that had left him to die in the mine, and anyone else that got in his way. His body count totals up to around 22 men and women.
Ghostface comes in at number six because he can appear in a matter of seconds and then vanish like he was never there after spying on or murdering his victims. He only comes in at six because unlike other slasher antagonists he is only human, and the only thing "supernatural" about him is his ability to be very stealthy and appear and disappear quickly. Ghostface's body count lays at a solid 41.
Leatherface is coming at you at number five on the list. I put him at five because although he is very brutish and strong, as well as kills a decent amount of people, he's rather dumb and childish, especially in the 2013 Texas Chainsaw Massacre, in the end, his downfall was rather weak because it was his cousin who told him to stop, so he just, did. After murdering all her friends, she was completely fine with it and then locked him back into the basement that he apparently couldn't get out of. Thats why I ranked him at number five, with his total body count being at 28 people.
Chucky is a notorious serial killer's spirit trapped inside a doll's body. Constantly trying to transfer his soul into a human body, is his main mission. This demonic little children's doll is pretty damn freaky, in fact, he even ends up having a wife and child of his own... that kill people, too. So, I guess you could say it's a family business. He's at number four because of that face, and his "can do" attitude of getting something done when he wants it. His body count totals up to 42 people.
#3: Michael Myers
Michael Myers is coming in at number three because he murdered his older sister Judith and was committed to a mental hospital as a child. Fifteen years later, he escapes and goes back to Haddonfield, Illinois to stalk and kill the people there, but only around Halloween. He comes in at number three because in the first movie he's shot six times and in the second is nowhere to be found when the movie starts right after he's shot. So, to me that means that he's not human, or those shots missed some pretty vital organs. His total body count is about 94 people through all the films.
#2: Jason Voorhees
Jason Voorhees has been around for ages, he's one of the most iconic and known slasher antagonists of all time. He's coming in at number two because he's pretty much the definition of badass and is immensely strong. He pretty much can't die. Jason stood up and fought against Freddy Krueger, who can be in your head and kill you, and he still came out ahead (it's funny, right?). He's murdered, shot, sliced, diced and brutalized over 150 people. But... in the end he didn't make the cut to our top spot on the list just because he's not as powerful as our number one. Our head hancho still got into his head and controlled him to do his bidding for his own gains and manipulated him, that's why he falls ever so short from being the top spot on this list.
#1: Freddy Krueger
The infamous Freddy Krueger... kills you in your dreams and gets others to kill you while you're awake. He will find you where ever you hide, because you can never hide from sleep, no matter how hard you try you will eventually fall asleep, and that one second, that small bit of time, is all he needs to grab you and pull you into his own world... where you have no escape. He had phycological problems even before he died. He would touch small children, and that's why people rallied together and locked him in his house then burned it to the ground. Years later, he comes back for the children of these parents, and starts killing them off one by one. Freddy Krueger is also the only thing that could stand a chance against Jason Voorhees, he even got into Jason's head and got him to start killing people on Elm Street while Freddy was trapped in Hell. He comes in at number one because he can be in your dreams, get other people to kill you outside your dreams, and can morph into all sorts of messed up things. His total body count is about 35 people, and I know that doesn't seem like a lot, but the way he mentally tortured them was worse all the same, he made them suffer in agony before killing them.
