We all love a bad boy – that guy you can’t take home to Mom – but the hunks on this list go a little beyond just bad. They’re sadists. Cannibals. Werewolves. But don’t they deserve some love too?
Reverend Lowe – Silver Bullet: Since my first viewing, I’ve always been attracted to this bad guy, and religious fanatic/werewolf serial killers aren’t even usually my type. I think the eye-patch helped… somehow…
Tex Sawyer – Leatherface: TCM 3: Probably my favorite Texas Chainsaw sequel, it also has one of the hottest redneck cannibal hunks I can think of. (And there’s more than a few.) The scarf, the scruff, and the pure insanity Viggo Mortensen gives the character just all work. I think I could survive a night with that.
Vilmer – TCM: The Next Generation: Told you there were more hottie redneck cannibals. And the Texas Chainsaw boys take up a couple spots. In this trashy sequel/requel, a guilty pleasure of mine, Matthew McConaughey takes Viggo’s place as head cannibal in charge… and I wouldn’t feel guilty about that pleasure one bit.
Dracula – Waxwork: Though it was only a small bit in a larger film, I always dug the Dracula segment of Waxwork. And I particularly enjoyed how scruffy and handsome this incarnation of the Count was. Insert sexy vampire sucking joke here!
Jerry – Fright Night: You might be thinking I’m obviously talking about the original Jerry played by Chris Sarandon, but alas, I’m not. Just wasn’t my type. That Irish hottie Colin Farrell though… yes please. Insert second vampire sucking joke here.
Frank – Hellraiser: For most of the flick, Frank was a sadistic, skinless, tormented man on the run from Pinhead and the rest of the Cenobites. But when he had skin, he was kind of hot in that sweaty, gruff, scruffy 80s way.
J.P. Monroe – Hellraiser III: Speaking of sexy sinners who stumble upon the demonic puzzle box, JP was one of the first horror men I can remember stirring my loins. And to this day, I’d let him show me his world of dark desires.
Until the next batch of horror hunks, boils and ghouls! And don’t forget, drop off your own suggestions in the comments below. xoxo
