I have a confession to make—I have a love/hate relationship with horror protagonists. While some are brave, others are... kind of not the sharpest tool in the shed, and it's completely aggravating at times. If you're a horror fan, then you already know that 99 percent of the time the protagonists come out on top whether they are brilliant or not. So it's not a matter of whether or not they are going to win the battle (because we know they are), it's about how well they won the battle against the zombies, ghouls, ghosts, vampires, etc. Today we're going to be taking a look at the best horror protagonists of all-time to date.
What are the qualifications to make our particular list you might ask? Not only are we going by toughness/bravery, but we're also taking into account wit and leadership. Were these protagonists on their Ps and Qs the entire time? Did they investigate every nook and cranny? Did it take them entirely too long to realize something was behind them? Did they start hugging and celebrating before the battle was over? These are the factors we're taking into consideration as far as what we qualify to be the "best."
Take a look below.
