Which Boogeyman Will Kill You?

In the dark lurks a nameless, shapeless fear that comes to consume us all--well, it's not always nameless or shapeless, but one of these boogeymen or women could have your number.

Are you afraid of what lurks in the dark?

When you're alone in the woods, do you ever feel like you're being watched?

Did you make your parents check under the bed for monsters?

And look in the closet?

What is the scariest days of the year for you?

What do you think the boogey(wo)man is?

When you're scared, how do you get to your happy place?

Whose warning would you heed?

Freddy Krueger

Freddy Krueger

Sure, he's a little played out, but is there really anyone creepier than a phantom killer with knives for fingers that stalks you in your dreams? (That guy next door doesn't count.) "1...2...Freddy's coming for you." *shudder*

Michael Myers

Michael Myers

He's there, pale-faced in his Shatner mask, lurking on the edge of your peripheral vision. Michael Myers is the personification of the boogieman--silent, relentless, omnipresent. And boy does he have his dead eyes set on you.

Mary Shaw

Mary Shaw

Like a ghost (or demonic force, to be technical), Mary Shaw waits for you in the dark with her creepy dolls, hoping you'll slip up and let loose a shriek, so she could steel your tongue. Sounds like fun, eh.

Mrs. Voorhees

Mrs. Voorhees

"Get her mommy," is all you'll hear as the sweet old lady, who you thought had your back, sticks a knife in it. Hell hath no fury like a mother who's mutated son drowned because the lifeguards were boning in the barn. Be careful who you trust.

The Tall Man

The Tall Man

It doesn't matter whether you're asleep or awake. When the Tall Man comes for you, dreams become reality. If his gleaming balls don't bore your brain out, he'll shrink you into a creepy dwarf creature and ship you back to his home dimension. We don't envy you.

Samara

Samara

Better think twice before watching that viral video on YouTube, because you never know what vengeful spirits are attached to it and could pop out of a well and drag you straight off this mortal coil.
