Horror film villains are enshrined entities. So naturally, they have reputations to protect. That doesn't mean they don't have soft spots within their black hearts though.

Yeah, maybe they don't mind hurting people very, very, badly, but there's another side. A side that doesn't mind taking selfies, playing instruments, and even hugging their beloved parents whenever they can.

My goal is to expose this part of your favorite slashers. Sure, they deserve their notorious reputations. But it's important to show that even the most ruthless villains are normal sometimes.

2. Jason Loves To Smile

Horror Villains Aren't All That Bad

These are just a few photos that prove horror villains aren't always hardcore. Sure they have their moments. But, everybody has another side to them. So when you're watching Friday The 13th and Jason is hacking some poor soul into itty-bitty pieces, remember you aren't seeing the whole picture.
