Filmmaker Don Mancini created Chucky with the release of "Child's Play" in 1988, launching a new slasher horror franchise. The supernatural horror-slasher franchise has spawned six sequels and has a reboot in the making. So far, the franchise has grossed over $176 million globally at the box office. While not a huge box office draw, Chucky is arguably the most beloved out of all the horror movie monsters. He's the reigning champion of the monster madness bracket for two years in a row!

Chucky is a Good Guy doll possessed by "the Lakeshore Strangler" Charles Lee Ray. The serial killer uses a voodoo amulet to transfer his conscious into the '80s childhood doll. Throughout the franchise, Chucky attempts to transfer his soul into a human host, originally terrorizing poor Andy, who only wanted to Good Guy doll to play with. Later, Chucky's love interest Tiffany joins him in his murderous rampage. They are the parents of twins Glen and Glenda. Yep, two killer dolls reproduced! But reproducing isn't Chucky's only ability. He also has regenerative abilities and knows his voodoo! He's literally the last thing you'll expect to be a serial killer because he's a such a good guy!

John Kramer, a.k.a. Jigsaw, first appeared in the 2004 slasher "Saw." Kramer was a civil engineer diagnosed with terminal cancer who later decides to embrace life by teaching troubled people lessons about living by threatening their very existences. He traps them in deadly torture devices and forces them to play a game to test how far they are willing to go to survive. Losing or cheating will result in brutal death. Kramer gets the nickname Jigsaw by keeping pieces of his victim's flesh in the shape of a puzzle piece.

The original film is written by Leigh Whannell where Jigsaw briefly appears. He becomes a more prevalent antagonist in "Saw II" and subsequent films. Horror fans clearly love the torture porn and each film's twist ending. For those of you who haven't seen the films, or get queasy easily, the franchise may not be for you. You'll be throwing up chunks while watching chunks of Jigsaw's victims flying everywhere. It can be a lot to look at, but the popular series has eight installments and grossed over $976 million globally at the box office, so far.
