10 Terrifying Paranormal Characters Who Are Normally Attractive

Daveigh Chase

Horror movie villains are designed specially to haunt your nightmares long after the credits stop rolling. They lurk in the shadows of your memories, make you check over your shoulder when you enter a dark room, and have you checking under your bed before you snuggle in for the night. But strip away all the makeup and gore and you are in for a pleasant surprise — these onscreen terrors are portrayed by a gang of actors who turn heads in real life for all the right reasons. Who woulda thunk that the Jeepers Creepers Creeper and The Ring‘s Samara are secretly attractive?

This Halloween, be inspired by these actors’ moxie and leave the Slutty Big Bird costume at the store. Take Daveigh Chase’s lead and ugly yourself up this All Hallows’ Eve. Don’t be afraid.

Celebrity Editor Abbey Stone hails from the fair isle of Martha's Vineyard, a lovely, vaguely dinosaur-shaped spot of land located off the coast of Cape Cod, MA, that is best known for exporting preppy salmon-colored pants. But the bright lights of New York City beckoned, and Abbey was lured away from her coastal haven to attend Barnard College. She graduated in 2010 with a degree in English and a much less useful minor in Dance. Abbey has been published in Dance Magazine, The Huffington Post, Time Out New York, and Popstar! magazine (where she learned more than she ever wanted to know about Justin Bieber). Abbey now lives in Brooklyn, where she spends her days watching stupid Internet videos and reading pretentious books.
