It’s that ghoulishly good time of the year again. At Halloween we traipse the streets trick or treating, dressed as Jack the Ripper and Annabelle, alongside our little wizards, witches and pumpkins. Millions of people will be tuning into a scary film with a huge bowl of popcorn to hide behind or sitting in darkness with just a tiny flicker of candlelight, telling the world’s scariest ghost story.
The team at Magazine.co.uk might not be afraid of many ghouls, but there are a few characters from past and present (some a little unpredictable) that caused us nightmares. In celebration of Halloween, we take a closer, light-hearted look at some of the scariest characters from film, TV and books.
We want to stop those middle-of-the-night terrors and put your mind at ease when your head hits the pillow. General Woundwort won’t be chasing you down a rabbit hole and ET won’t be hiding in your wardrobe!
