Every good horror villain has a story to tell, or at the very least a nightmare. Michael Myers had a troubled and abusive childhood, Leatherface is a mute and dumb canniblistic killer from an insestual family and Jason Voorhees was murdered during a prank at summer camp. Every good horror villain also has a reliable weapon of choice, usually a knife of some kind. Both Candyman and the Fisherman from I Know What You Did Last Summer break the mold by using a hook of some kind. Of course Freddy Krueger’s metal claws are the most unique.
