3 Top "Misters" in Horror Media That Will Give You the Willies

Is it me, or does the title mister kinda carry with it that sort of "towering" darkness, like a tall stranger choking the light out of you as he stands clear over your head with a menacing look on his face? It could be any of the variations, too -- "Mr." or even the more professional "professor" or "doctor." Some kind of title before the name establishes a certain air of the character, which is why in mysteries and horror tales, whenever we see a character often referred to as "Mister Brooks" or "Mister Jones" or "Mister E." or "Mr. Boogie" or "Professor Moriarty" or "Doctor Sleep," chances are pretty damn good that....

These Freakin' MISTERS Are Probably the Villains, Right?

I would say so. You don't find a whole lot of misses or Mrs. attached to villains, although I'd find it refreshing to see such a character in a story. However, no one would disagree with me: if THE BABADOOK would ever try to be even scarier.... I'd exchange THE for MISTER. It lends more of a personality, which can draw you in to something even creepier than just an "entity" in a book, or a spell, or in the shadows.

That's just my opinion.

It's pretty fair to say, though, that we see quite a bit of the horror movie short in today's media featuring the whole "mister" thing, chilling to the bone with a sense of awe and intrigue about "what the Hell is this MISTER [insert creepy name] we keep hearing about????" and then we don't sleep at night.

So I took it upon myself to include the top three short films I happen to consider, well, chilling. For a lot of reasons. A sad, yet cool, stereotype. It makes me not want to ever be referred to as "mister." Just call me sir.

Just click each title, so you watch the suspense ooze from your eyeballs, mister.

Mr. Creak

Mr. Sticks

Mr. Thump

These Three Horror Characters Would Actually Make Quite the Crossover, Too!

And we've spoken about crossovers before.... Let's get in on this. I want to see a 3-way nightmare on-screen now. Let's go, misters.

Why THE FACULTY Has so Much in Common With Body Snatchers and Pink Floyd

The Faculty took the idea of the invasion and simply localized it. Instead of a planet -- everyone is in danger, no discrimination, nothing to signify what these aliens want or are looking for -- the alien(s) instead focused their effect on just those few teachers. Now there's an interesting high concept.

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.

'It Follows': Not Just a Cautionary Tale About Casual Sex

And in all its basic-ness, you'd be shocked to realize that it's not just a linear-type film with one main idea. There are actually a ton of deep meanings behind all of the frames, the shots, the sequences, the scenes. With obviously the underlying principle, the whole point of it: meaningless sex is bad!
