I'm wondering, are there any horror film "characters" that ever really fucked you up? I meen, Freddy Kruger is more of a comedian and Jason never really had any effect on me... Mike Myers was't even remotely threatening.

So, who fucked you up? Maybe not "fucked you up", but who got under your skin at least?

I would have to say that there were 3 for me:

1. The burnt up cult leader from BAD DREAMS
2. That decomposing bitch from room 213 (The Shining)
3. The woman bending over the bed making that horrible "aeehhhhhhhhhhhhhhh" sound on the original version of The Grudge...

When I was very young, the only films to have a major impact on me were Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Hills Have Eyes, The Exorcist and the original House on Haunted Hill.

My earliest memory of being scared by something in a film, was Large Marge in Pee Wee's Big Adventure though. Ha..

I'm a major horror fan, but I haven't watched anything for a while. Last movies I've sat down to watch were Hitchcock's Vertigo and an old haunted house one called The Uninvited, which is highly recommended.

Large Marge was totally unexpected and one of the best "jump out at you"

Hmmm, more recently La Tenia from "Irreversible" simply because there are subhumans like this in reality. Same goes for Henry and Otis in "Portrait of a Serial Killer".

Haha, that made me laugh about Lars and the Slayer retards!

For me, I'd say the most incredibly evil bad guy in a film has to be Father Barre from the Devils. That whole film, but particularly that character makes for some of the most uncomfortable viewing I've ever come across in my adult life. I have to say the only other thing that has ever made me feel a bit uncomfortable was the rotting woman in The Shining. The only other things that really scared me were the Daleks from Dr. Who when I was a kid. They terrified me like nothing else on the face of the planet, I lost so much sleep over Dr. Who when I was a child it's untrue! Strange because when I watch back over them now, they're pretty funny!

Not a horror film per se, but this character Shooter out of "Secret Window" really makes me shiver every time I see or better hear him. Such a mean, snotty voice. Other than that I'm most afraid of what you can't see. Y'know, the infamous who when you call who's there.

Irreversible I didn't like at all. I still have it on DVD-R somewhere. Got to find it and toss it in the trash.

Henry was OK, but the real Otis was far more of a disgusting and disturbing human than as portrayed in the film. In the movie it actually seems like he has some brain cells. The movie is largely based on fiction though. I don't believe either one of them were as prolific as they claimed to be.

If we're talking about film villains, then Dennis Hopper in Blue Velvet gets my vote. One of the most proud moments in my life is when a therapist told me I reminded her of that character with a bewildered look on her face.
