17 Iconic Horror Villains Without Their Makeup

Some well-known horror actors are just known to the public by the face they have to wear onscreen. Whether these actors hide behind a mask, just like Jason Voorhees of Friday the 13th or draped in grotesque makeup like Linda Blair of The Exorcist, horror actors in the makeup look absolutely different out of their character – which is actually a good thing since a few of their movie counterparts are quite scary in appearance.

Here are some pictures of your favorite actors both, in and out of makeup which date all the way back to the 1920s and also include some of your favorite villains. Thankfully, the looks that these actors produced were brought to life without the use of CGI. With prosthetics or makeup, these villains are quite real and up to the mark. Here’s the list of actors who had to sit in makeup chairs for hours as artists apply makeup.
