What scared you the most the last time you watched a horror movie? We'd bet money on the menacing demeanor of famous villains like Freddy Kreuger, Jason Vorhees, and Michael Myers. It may surprise you to see, however, that the faces behind these ghastly ghouls are just ordinary people that bear little or no resemblance to the sheer terror their characters embody.

See each remarkable transformation below, and vote for the stares that spooked you to the bone.
