Horror movie villains are designed specially to haunt your nightmares long after the credits stop rolling. They lurk in the shadows of your memories, make you check over your shoulder when you enter a dark room, and have you checking under your bed before you snuggle in for the night. But strip away all the makeup and gore and you are in for a pleasant surprise these onscreen terrors are portrayed by a gang of actors who turn heads in real life for all the right reasons. Who woulda thunk that the Jeepers Creepers Creeper and The Ring's Samara are secretly attractive?
This Halloween, be inspired by these actors' moxie and leave the Slutty Big Bird costume at the store. Take Daveigh Chase's lead and ugly yourself up this All Hallows' Eve. Don't be afraid.
