Carys Levine | 15 | The Bad Seed: Rhoda Penmark | FC: Willow Shields | Open
Carys has never had a very good grasp on her anger. Even the littlest thing could set her off on what would otherwise have been a seemingly good day. When you look at her, you expect that she’s a sweet young girl with a heart of gold who could never do anything wrong. The people that knew her would gladly disagree, though. They knew the manipulative, lying, scheming girl she really was.
Rhoda is portrayed as a sociopath, although the term was not widely used at the time. She has no conscience and will kill if necessary to get whatever she wants. By the time Christine, her mother, puts the truth together, Rhoda has already killed two people (a neighbor in Baltimore, and her classmate Claude Daigle). In time, she also kills Leroy, the apartment building’s gardener and the only adult who sees through her. An adept manipulator, she can easily charm adults while eliciting fear and revulsion from other children, who can sense something wrong with her.
Carys never got along with any of the other kids in her class and was often suspended for starting fights with the people around her. Her innocence only went skin deep, but the evil was to the core. Every fiber of her being was laced with bad intentions. She got a twisted sort of thrill out of causing other people pain and feeling strong when she watched them as they begged and pleaded with her for mercy.
Arthur Garmond | 68 | The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Boss Sawyer | FC: Sir Ian McKellan | Open
Arthur Garmond taught psychology at Deacon Falls University for almost forty years before retiring and spending most of his time at the bookshop in town, holding readings and signing sessions for the book that he wrote about his experiences in handling some of the things that had gone on around the town over the past few months. When the killer emerged and he began to realize that things were much bigger than a few pranks and mercy killings here and there, he knew he was going to get to the bottom of things, and started to write a book based on his findings in researching the killings.
A member of the Sawyer family who appears in the beginning of Texas Chainsaw 3D. Boss sits inside the Sawyer house with a shotgun when Sheriff Hooper arrives to arrest Leatherface. Boss tries to convince Drayton that they should just give up Leatherface. When Drayton argues that he is family, Boss retorts that Leatherface is “simple” and not right “for a Sawyer.” Drayton gives in, and Boss yells out to Hooper that they are bringing him out and asks that “Jed gets a good lawyer.” Before they can bring out Jedidiah, however, residents of Newt led by Burt Hartman arrive and burn the Sawyer house to the ground, killing Boss and other relatives.
It was during his investigating that he came across the Deacon Falls Killer in the woods and was killed. When spirits began to hang around the town and the residents started to notice, Arthur knew that he wasn’t quite as alive as he had wanted to believe. He’d been going about his life as normal until he came across his own grave and then eventually read about his murder in the paper. As the spirits of Deacon Falls gained power, he found himself being able to work a computer better and better, and he wrote his first book. He made no effort to keep his status as a ghost a secret and there really wasn’t any way to do that anyhow, seeing as he was a lot more translucent than the others.
Xaviera “Xav” Avilov or Luna | 24 | Hide and Seek: Emily Callaway | FC: Kerli Koiv | Taken | OC
Odd was the biggest understatement of a word to describe Xaviera’s life. She grew up knowing two different mothers. The fun, loud, creepy, intense and evil one, and the strict, happy, sweet one. It never bothered her, she actually used to enjoy the thought. Having two mothers was twice the love, and ten times more interesting than other little kids’ lives. Astrid, her playful best friend told her to never speak of her to other people. Xaviera was a good girl and never did tell anyone about her second mommy, Astrid, they only knew about Viola, her formal mother. Xaviera wasn’t sure if her dad knew about Astrid, but she never said anything. It wasn’t until 13 that Xav became afraid of Astrid. See, Astrid felt that her family wasn’t making enough money, that Viola was becoming worthless, something short of useful human being. Astrid started selling Xaviera for sex, making plenty of money, bringing in large amounts of cash. Both Viola and Xaviera’s father were confused by it. Viola never realized she was schizophrenic, so the money was something she didn’t understand, and neither was Xaviera’s behavior toward her. Astrid didn’t like Xav’s father’s questioning and decided it was best to get rid of him, going straight for the throat with a nice steak knife.
In Hide and Seek, Emily Callaway is the daughter of schizophrenic David Callaway. After seeing his wife Alison cheating on him at a dinner party, his schizophrenia became more present than it ever had been, revealing his dark side to no one but his now-dead wife and little girl Emily. The night he saw the infidelity, Charlie, his other personality, killed Alison in their bathtub, making it look like suicide by slitting her wrists. At exactly 2:06 AM he woke up again, as David, and found Alison, and bawled hysterically, holding Alison to him. Emily saw the encounter and became a near mute. David decided it was best to move, which only brought out Charlie even more often. At first, Emily enjoyed him, saying Charlie was “fun like mommy was.” This irritated David and things happened that irritated him. Writings on the bathroom wall, things like “Can you see now?” in red crayon that he believed was Emily’s doing brought him to the near point of insanity. He wouldn’t believe that it was Charlie, the character he thought was Emily’s imaginary friend. Charlie killed a cat, his womanly company Elizabeth, and a sheriff since moving to their new house. Emily began to hate Charlie and their gruesome games of Hide and Seek. Emily’s friend and mental doctor Katherine shot Charlie in the end of the movie, just as he was about to kill Emily. Emily moved into Katherine’s house. Right before the end credits, it shows Emily drawing a picture of her and Katherine. Emily has two heads, revealing that she gained her fathers schizophrenia.
Once Xaviera’s father died and the forced prostitution continued, Xaviera’s own schizophrenia began. She’d been born with the disease, but it had never been prominent in her until the trauma of being sold and the stress of dealing with Astrid alone hit her hard. Life became easier after that and she wasn’t sure why. She didn’t know about her other side, all she knew was that the only time Astrid ever showed herself was in what seemed like hallucinations, the men that attacked her felt like nightmares, delusions. None if it felt real anymore, seemed like it was part of a separate life. Luna took care of that stuff. It made Xaviera’s exterior soften, her personality becoming bubbly, carefree, wishful again. While Xaviera grew into a woman who enjoyed sexual encounters, the raping at a young age affecting her in nymphomaniatic ways, Luna saw the world in a traumatized light. The girl was not okay with any type of sexual experience unless her best friend Xaviera was calling the shots. One too many times a full grown man had gotten a broken arm from slapping her ass, or a jaw ripped off from dirty talking her. Maybe a knife to the chest by luring Xav into a darkened ally. Luna didn’t show herself as often as Astrid had, only when she felt the need to step in. Unlike Astrid who hated Viola, Luna loved Xaviera. Eventually though, she made sure both Astrid and Viola were dead the second she found the chance, torturously slow and painful, for all that she did to cause harm to Xaviera. All the years of rape, stress, questionable sanity, and losses were gone in one long, bloody night. Luna now finds it her duty to get rid of those she deems unfit to live any longer. If you’re thinking of doing something you probably shouldn’t and you’re in her region of knowing about it, think again. Luna likes to play.
Riley Nympha Timore | 18 | The Ring: Samara Morgan | FC: Nina Dobrev | Taken | OC
It is very easy to dismiss the beautiful young girl with the doll-like eyes to be the pivotal role of the little girl lost. There is a sense of vulnerability about her reminiscent to that of a porcelain doll but even more there is a sense of manipulative power there as well. Riley is the town’s medical examiner and as such is also the provably a genius. With the ability to see into a person’s mind and manipulate them through thoughtography she warps not only the person but the world around her. This is a defense mechanism of sorts, harming others before they can harm her.
Samara Morgan only ever wanted to be loved as every child deserves to be but she wasn’t like other children. When people on the small coastal island Samara and her adoptive parents lived on would say she was different it wasn’t in an endearing way. That’s about the time her adoptive mother started to see things she believed Samara had burned into her mind and the family’s prized horses began to die by leaping from the cliffs. Her adoptive father desperately sought help, sending Samara to mental hospitals but each time she came back home things only got worse. One day her mother suffocated little Samara and tossed her down a well on the family’s property. What she didn’t realize was her little girl was still alive when she sealed the well. Samara managed to survive for seven days before perishing in the murky waters. Her violent death led to her vicious soul plaguing the living through images burned into a cursed video tape.
Riley knows she is Samara, the evil little girl given the chance to grow up. Juggled through foster homes her entire life and letting no one close save for Greg Abrams and Oliver Bailey. She was also once married to Jake Monroe. Vicious, artistic, brilliant and beloved easily describe the town’s resident doctor sociopath.
Dana Ashcroft | 19 | Jeepers Creepers: The Creeper | FC: Taylor Swift | Open
When you first lay eyes on Dana, the phrase ‘Never trust a pretty girl with an ugly secret’ pops to mind. You wouldn’t be able to tell by just glancing at her, but Dana once was only known for the terrible way she slaughtered people every 23rd spring for 23 days. She feasted on every part of those victims bodies. In this life, though, she doesn’t let anyone see her when she gets hungry or injured, though the taste of human flesh is still so inviting to her. Her best friend is Jake Monroe and the two have been friends for years, due to the nature of their pasts, and how their past selves don’t speak to them or really come out all that often.
She was an ancient immortal demon known as the “The Creeper”, which hunts every twenty-third spring for twenty-three days to feast on human body parts which, upon consumption, form part of its own body. Centuries of doing this, as well as the Creeper’s supernatural origins, make it virtually impossible to be killed. She also tells them that it seeks out its victims through fear, and that by smelling the fear from Trish and Darry, it has found something it likes, but she does not know what. The driver, noticing Darry and Trish have seen him, catches up to them and tries to run them off the road a second time. After barely escaping, Darry insists they go back to the church and investigate. Darry proceeds to crawl inside the pipe with Trish holding on to him, but she loses her grip and he slides down the pipe. At the bottom, he finds hundreds of bodies sewn together in a “psycho version of the Sistine Chapel”, covering the walls of a massive cavern beneath the church.
Dana is the embodiment of perfection-or, at least, that’s what she thinks-and she doesn’t try to hide how highly she thinks of herself. She’s basically the female version of Silas Monroe, without the overbearing need to break girls down at the first chance that she gets. She doesn’t understand why people in town are so scared of the so-called villains, as she thinks that they’re some of the greatest people in the town. She could be a little bias, of course, seeing as they are her best friends and the people that she spends so much of her time with. She’s rude, doesn’t care about other people’s feelings, and isn’t at all concerned with how she comes off to other people. Her mother raised her to not care about what other people thought of her and she really took hold of that idea and ran with it.
Augustus Nocens | 20 | The Omen: Damien Thorn | FC: Daniel Sharman | Open
Augustus is evil. There has never be a more prevalent need for someone to go out, do something terrible, and watch as the effects unfold around the family of the victim than there is in Augustus. He has always loved the look of terror on an innocent little kids face when they think that something bad is going to happen to them and usually Augustus would just scare the living daylights out of them and be on his merry way, but every now and then, he took their life just for the heck of it. Watching a life fall apart from the inside out has always appealed to Augustus and his family never understood why. They tried to make him an better person and it didn’t ever work out in their favor.
Damien was born in Vatican city at 06:00 a.m. on June 6 in various years of the original series due to continuity changes to the first three films having a “present day” setting (2006 in the most recent remake). His birthday (the sixth hour of the sixth day of the sixth month) constitutes the number 666. The number also appears on his body as a birthmark, and it is discovered in the novelization of the first film that he has no fingerprints. Though he is originally unaware of his parentage, he gradually comes to understand and accept his identity as the Antichrist as he grows older.
When he was twelve, he murdered both of his parents and the cops found him laughing in a corner and cradling the knife like it was a precious child. His two siblings were sent to live with their Aunt in a neighboring city and Augustus went to stay in a psych ward until they could figure out what was wrong with him. At eighteen, he was released when he didn’t show any sign of anything being wrong, but he was really just good at convincing people that he was okay. He wasn’t okay and that would soon be apparent when he got back to Deacon Falls and made some friends. Meeting some of the people in town and finding out they had the same hobbies as him gave him a lot of ideas. It would be a lot harder to pin things on him if there were other villains in town; especially if he were friends with those villains. After all, then they could cover for each other and help each other get away with things. All’s well that doesn’t end well.
Alyssa Minnick | 16 | Halloween: Laurie Strode | FC: Selena Gomez | Taken
Alyssa Minnick has always felt an odd pull toward Jake Monroe and she hasn’t ever been able to figure out why. While there has always been this strange pull toward him, she has also felt as though she needs to stay as far away from him as possible. For Alyssa, it was obvious that the town of Deacon Falls wasn’t a safe place, and she often thought about running away and never looking back, but there was a little voice in the back of her mind that was telling her she would never be able to get out of the little town that she grew up in and she knew that that little voice was correct. Deacon Falls had never been a place that you could just escape from. Even if you somehow got out, you would always find yourself coming back in, and settling right back into the old lifestyle and habits that you had once had. Old habits do die hard, after all, and in a place like Deacon Falls, it isn’t hard to fall back into a routine that you once had.
Laurie Strode, born Cynthia Myers, is a fictional character in the Halloween horror film series, portrayed by actresses Jamie Lee Curtis and Scout Taylor-Compton. She appears in six of the present ten Halloween installments, first appearing in John Carpenter’s original 1978 film. She is the primary protagonist of the first, second, and seventh and appears at the beginning of the eighth; Laurie exemplifies the final girl stock character. Jamie Lee Curtis portrayed the role in the original run of the series. Laurie Strode first appears in the original Halloween. The 17-year-old Laurie has plans to babysit Tommy Doyle on Halloween night, 1978. However, throughout the day, she keeps seeing a mysterious masked man watching her wherever she goes; unbeknownst to her, this is Michael Myers, an escaped mental patient who murdered his sister, Judith Myers, 15 years ago and has begun stalking her. As Laurie babysits Tommy, Myers kills Annie and Lynda, in the house across the street. Growing concerned when they fail to call her, Laurie goes to investigate and sees their corpses laid out for her to find, before being attacked by Myers. Laurie defends herself by stabbing him with a knitting needle, a metal hanger, and his own knife, but nothing kills him. As he rises again and begins to strangle her, Laurie is saved by Dr. Sam Loomis, who shoots Myers off the balcony.
Alyssa has always been a kind and caring young lady, but that was never what drew Mr. Monroe to her. It was the soul within her that called out to a part of him that had been alive for a very long time, a part of him that only came out on Halloween. She had always hated Halloween and wanted to stay inside on those holidays, shuddering just at the thought of having to be around people that were so into the idea of dressing up like scary creatures and going around terrorizing little kids just because they could. None of that appealed to her and she typically stayed inside on Halloween so that she didn’t have to see the people that were trying to make everyone around them fear for their lives. She wanted absolutely no part of that, even if she did live in a town where everything was connected to a horror movie, and she was the living, breathing reincarnation of Laurie Strode, and Michael Myers was watching her, even in this new life that she had been given to try and make things right; if that were even possible.
Bliss Owens | 17 | The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Pepper | FC: Perrie Edwards | Taken
Bliss is known around town as being nearly indestructible. She’s been friends with some of the crazies and some of the not-so-crazies for as long as she can remember. She blurs the line between friend and enemy far more than she should, seeing as that line is one of the only things saving her from an imminent death. She’s the kind of girl who doesn’t give a shit what people say about her and she’ll do anything she can for the people that she loves. Or, at least, anything she loves as long as she’ll be getting something in return.
Pepper hitched a ride with Kemper, Erin, Andy and Morgan on there way to Dallas, Texas while in Mexico. On the way they picked up a traumatized hitch hiker who shot herself with a revolver. Pepper shows to be the most frightened. They go to a meat shop and are told to meet sherrif Hoyt at the crawford mill. They arrive at the mill to find Hoyt never showed up. Pepper, Andy, and Morgan stay behind while Erin and Kemper head off in search off the sherrif. Pepper urges Morgan to shoot Hoyt. After pulling the trigger Morgan finds the gun was never loaded and Hoyt drives off with Morgan. Erin attempts to hot wire the car but they don’t get far. She drives it into a ditch causing the back tire to fall off. Just then Leatherface drives his chainsaw through the roof of the car. Pepper attempts to escape on foot but trips and is sawed in half.
Bliss keeps a journal of all the bad things that happen in Deacon Falls and doesn’t know whether or not she’ll ever get to the end of the list she’s been making for years. She’s got a very sarcastic personality and it’s usually very difficult to differentiate between the times when she’s just kidding and when she’s actually trying to joke around with you. She graduated high school early and now attends Deacon Falls University with the rest of the best and brightest students that the town has to offer.
Iris Jenner | 18 | The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Sally Hardesty | FC: Lucy Hale | Taken
Growing up in one of the smallest and creepiest towns in America never even so much as phased Iris. She and her twin sister, Ivy, never gave much thought to the rumors that circulated around town and they were two of the most seemingly normal girls that lived in Deacon Falls. Well, they were two of the most seemingly normal girls, until they ran into Nate Williams and started to feel as though they would never be happy again. She has no idea that the rumors heard in the whispers of the wind are true, but if she were aware of that, she would understand why being so close to Nate makes her and her sister feel so terrified of what he could do to them. Leatherface killed a lot of people in the first life that he got to live and Sally Hardesty was one of those people, but in this life, Iris doesn’t have any plan to let him hold that sort of power over her again. She was taught from a young age how to deal with people that want to harm her and she’ll be damned if anything happens to her sister.
Sally Hardesty was the sister of Franklin Hardesty. She drove out with her brother and their three friends: her boyfriend Jerry, Kirk and his girlfriend, Pam to Muerto County to make certain that their grandfather’s grave had not been desecrated during a recent rash of grave robbing incidents. While passing through town they picked up a hitchhiker who turned out to be a crazed lunatic. Following a bit of uncomfortable unpleasantness, they kicked the man out of their vehicle and proceeded to their grandparents’ old farmhouse. This idyllic summer afternoon soon turned into tragedy as one by one, all of Sally’s friends were brutally murdered by a cannibalistic man known only as Leatherface. Sally watched in horror as her invalid brother Franklin was disemboweled by Leatherface’s chainsaw. Sally tries to escape from Leatherface. Leatherface chased Sally through the forests until she sought refuge inside a nearby gas station/bait shop. What she learned only moments later, was that the proprietor of the bait shop was related to both Leatherface and the strange hitchhiker they picked up earlier that morning.
When she was thirteen, Iris first heard about the terrifying rumors that were told in Deacon Falls, but she chose to believe that they were just stories that parents would tell their children to keep them from wandering off by themselves in the middle of the night. She could see how the children would be frightened by the stories, especially when their young, impressionable minds would wander while they tried to lull themselves to sleep at night, but Iris was never scared by any of those things. She was always trying to act like the fearless leader, especially around her sister, because she knew how much it scared Ivy when people started to talk about the things that Deacon Falls was was supposed to be filled with. She had to make sure that her sister was okay.
Kent Hawthorne | 23 | The Devil’s Rejects: Tiny Firefly | FC: Andrew Garfield | Open
A case of middle child syndrome wasn’t just what Kent had. If you looked up the definition of ‘middle child syndrome’ in the dictionary, his frowning face would be there staring back at you as though he would never be happy again. His parents paid more attention to his younger sister because she was their darling little girl and the only daughter they had and his older brother got more attention because he was the football star all through high school. To Kent, being ignored was nothing new and he expected it wherever he went. Grayson and Carmody were always the type of people that stood out more, even though his little sister didn’t hardly speak at all.
The younger half-brother of Baby. Suffers from gigantism and is scarred all over because the Professor doused him in lighter fluid and set him alight when he was a child. When the four teenagers tried to leave his family house, he and Otis, who is his adoptive brother, went to attack them. Tiny pulled Denise out of their car and dragged her back in the house while Otis dealt with the rest. Tiny took Denise to his room, where the family dressed her as a doll for Halloween and offered her to him, but did not take advantage of it as he had a soft spot for women. He would however, show no signs of remorse when they were to be killed at a ritual ground that he attended. In the second film, after saving Baby from being murdered, and Otis and Spaulding from the burning Firefly manor, he does not go with the rest of the clan and enters the burning house, where he presumably burns himself to death.
Kent was the most insecure out of all of his siblings. While Carmody may have been quiet and unwilling to create any sort of drama around herself, and Grayson was always surrounded by his friends, Kent kept to his small group of friends. All through high school, he was regarded as a loner, and it didn’t get any better when he went to college. He majored in communications and got a job at city hall, working alongside the Deacon Falls Police Unit to try and catch the killer that had been terrorizing the town. On the inside, Kent was terrified that he was going to stumble over information that he didn’t want to know about the town, things that involved his family and the people he held closest to him, but he also wanted to catch whoever had been killing people. After all, the killer had taken his mother’s life.
