A list of the 50 scariest movies of all time. While the term 'scary movie' is somewhat subjective, they focused on three main categories: 1. Is the movie so scary that it could change one's behavior? 2. Does the movie have a high likelihood of producing nightmares in many people? 3. Does the movie startle you, make you anxious, get your heart pumping, or just plain gross you out?
Candyman...was the antagonist of the horror movie (1992) of the same name, although a brutal killer and demonic spirit he has an especially tragic past compared to most horror icons which arguably made him more sympathetic - though he was nevertheless just as dangerous and deadly as any other slasher movie antagonist. It was directed by Bernard Rose and is based on the short story "The Forbidden" by Clive Barker. Candyman was played by Tony Todd.
