How Well Do You Know These Iconic Film Villains? [Quiz]

How Well Do You Know These Iconic Film Villains?

What transforms a character from your run-of-the-mill antagonist to an iconic villain? If a baddie has staying power, you know it. They've got the most quotable lines, the most dramatic entrances, and the best capes. An exceptional villain will not only make a movie but they can make a franchise. Where would Star Wars be without Darth Vader's heavy breathing? And why would we care about Harry Potter if he weren't destined to confront the most powerful dark wizard in the world? Let's face it: we, as humans, love drama. And the villains are the ones making all sorts of trouble tea to spill.

Unbox These Creepy Dolls: The Nightmare Collection of 12 Iconic Horror Movie Dolls [Infographic]

Creepy Dolls: The Nightmare Collection

The horror genre has several staples that are bound to give you the heebie-jeebies: jump scares, creepy kids, basements, isolated settings and creepy dolls. We'll be taking an exclusive look at horror movie dolls. What is it about dolls, ventriloquist dummies and mannequins that scare us?

If you're taking this quiz then you probably know a thing or two about the way horror movies go down. Yes, yes. There are different genres. We're not talking about creepy dolls like in Annabelle or Child's Play. Nor are we going to cover vengeful ghost stories (i.e., The Grudge, The Amityville Horror). Nope, we're focusing on a particular brand. You know it, it's the happy-getaway-turns-into-a-nightmare subgenre made popular with the low budget cult classics that came to fruition in the seventies.
