25 Iconic Horror Movie Villains

25. Bughuul (Sinister)

In the history of horror films, we have met some truly terrifying villains. And while we could surely list 100 or more monsters, let’s start off with 25 of the best the genre has to offer. At No. 25, Bughuul. We first met this haunting figure in 2012’s Sinister. There a few things that make Bughuul a daunting villain. For starters, the pagan deity doesn’t commit murders on his own. Instead, he manipulates the lives of children and influences them to murder their families. Once the children have completed the task, Bughuul is able to consume their souls. If that isn’t scary enough, consider the fact that Bughuul has been terrorizing families since the 1960s without being stopped.
