10 Iconic Horror Villains Of The Past Decade

Say hello to the new faces of horror.

Every Halloween, people everywhere dress as horror villains like Michael Myers, Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger, but why don't you see any costumes of modern characters? What ever happened to these iconic villains who leap off the screen and become widely known in popular culture? It does seem like there are a lot less of them these days, especially with this decade's focus on low budget supernatural films. You can't exactly dress as the villain from Paranormal Activity or Ouija, after all. Though the slasher genre was all the rage in the 1980s, giving rise to the aforementioned villains, those movies haven't been nearly as popular in recent years. But despite that, there are still plenty of horror characters from the past decade who are just as memorable as any of the classic ones. A few of these 10 villains are like modernized versions of older creations, while some are just completely unique. Either way, they're the characters that have already started to generate their own merchandise and who you'll probably start to see on Halloween night for years to come. Leaving behind the characters of the past, let's take a look at the 10 most iconic horror villains of the last decade.
