    Freddy Kruger? Michael Myers? Jason Voorhees? Dracula? Jigsaw? Chucky? The Leprechaun? Frankenstein's Monster? Norman Bates? Leatherface? The Wolf-man? Hannibal Lector? The Puppets from "Puppet Master"? If you seriously say the Puppets, I will become a horror movie icon and hunt you the f@ck down! There are no limitations though.

    I'm going to say Jason Voorhees, but I'll admit that there isn't much of a reason here. In the case of Freddy and Michael, I felt like what made those characters interesting gradually deteriorated in the sequels...although in Freddy's case, the things that would eventually annoy me about him arguably turned him into the most famous horror movie icon for awhile. I've never been especially partial to any of the older horror classics, but only because

    -I didn't grow up with them to have any emotional attachment.
    -They were cliches by the time I watched them.

    This isn't meant to be a real shot at "Frankenstein", etc., as they're all great. They're just not among my favorites.

    Jason Voorhees is cool because I've never taken an issue with the direction of the character and when his physique, personality or even gimmick would change, I always found him to be distinct and threatening. Michael from the first "Halloween" is better, but later sequels would turn him into a Jason clone, even though Jason began as a Michael clone.

    But what about you? What are your favorites?

    Maybe I should've gone with my title, 'best horror movie icon'.

    But the monster from "The Thing" is pretty awesome and not just as a special effect. It's motivations are shrouded in mystery, but it's clear it has motivations (the spaceship). The comics also expand on it, having the things converse with each-other (in their human hosts).

    The movie Fly has the best monster ever because of those amazing special effects. They almost managed to make Jeff Goldblum look human.
