Pea soup was never the same after Linda Blair played Regan MacNeil in “The Exorcist.” Her turning head literally turned stomachs!

Jack Torrance

Heeeeeeeeeeeeere’s Johnny! Jack Nicholson tormented his family in the terrifying “The Shining,” about a haunted, snowbound hotel. Stephen King strikes again.

Pennywise the Dancing Clown

Tim Curry of “Rocky Horror” fame plays the creepiest clown EVER in another Stephen King scarefest, “It.” Coulrophobia, anyone?

Kathy Bates terrified both James Caan and audiences as the creepy Annie Wilkes in “Misery.” She got an Oscar, we got the willies.


Harvey Stephens was the embodiment of evil as little Damien Thorn. Kids can be such angels… except when they’re fallen angels!
