Scariest horror movie icon ever: Michael Myers or Chucky?

We've been pitting eight horror heavyweights against each other all month long, and now we're down to the last two survivors. And the winner is... Chucky! 🎃

Does Michael Myers even have to prove how evil he is? He fatally stabbed his older sister to death when he was only 6-years-old, then returned home to stalk and kill his baby sister. He managed to slaughter her friends. Since then, the legacy of "the night he came home" continues to terrorize Haddonfield and moviegoers alike. 

Does Chucky's "playful" terror really match Michael's?

Chucky is actually a possessed "Good Guy" doll, inhabited by the soul of notorious serial killer Charles Lee Ray. Not some lumbering mute in an albino William Shatner mask. He's pure evil and, more importantly, he's a monster who actually talks. Chucky also knows voodoo. Does Michael know voodoo? Nope! (I bet he doesn't even know how to read.)

Also, how "scary" is a guy who only kills once a year in the same damned place? Jesus, folks—just move.

Michael has killed 111 victims since the original "Halloween" (1978). He has stabbed, sliced, slit, strangled, crushed and slaughtered people over the course of decades. God forbid if you are related to him or lived in his childhood home—consider yourself dead too. But a few have managed to survive his terror. (Just a few!) Michael's body count makes Chucky look like a Boy Scout.

Chuck's decades-long rampage makes Michael's holiday OCD look boring (killing kids once a year is pretty repetitive, bro). Sure, Michael Myers has the bodycount, but he can only kill as long as Starbucks is selling Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Chucky takes advantage of the whole damn calendar.

Chucky gets points for creativity; he doesn't just use any pointy object that's near him to off his victims. He terrifies his victims and then spouts off a one-liner. And unlike Michael, he spreads the love with his long-time bride Tiffany and their evil spawn.

But Michael is a force of evil to be reckoned with. See?

Please. Anyone can wear a mask and start killing teens. It's the world's second-oldest profession. But imagine this terrifying doll climbing into your bed in the middle of the night. Now, that is scary.

But Michael is one determined horror movie monster icon. He stalked his sister and former babysitter Laurie Strode (portrayed Jamie Lee Curtis) in 1978. She survived his attacks twice in one night. He found her again in 1998—she survived again. He finally managed to kill her before Halloween in 2002. Talk about being an unstoppable force of evil.

You want to talk determined? Chucky spent decades tracking the daughter of the woman responsible for his death, then murdered her entire family. Her mother, sister, brother-in-law, nanny and even the family priest. That's like winning Yahtzee in the monster biz.

Also, giving Michael credit for knocking off his sister after she was a 50-year-old mental patient eating Activia? Gimme a break.

The "Halloween" franchise has grossed an estimated $367 million worldwide. Top that, "Child's Play" franchise. Oh, that's right—YOU CAN'T.

If box office gross determines quality, then the "Transformers" series is better than "The Godfather."

More importantly, the "Child's Play" franchise is still a hit with fans. Whereas "Halloween" is on its second reboot in less than 10 years. Keep your day job, Michael... whatever the hell that is.

Added bonus? Michael has more rhythm than Chucky, which is all the reason you really need to vote for him.

Sure, Michael's got moves... but Chucky gets the ladies.
