For Geekade’s annual 31 Days of Halloween, we’ve turned to some familiar voices from around the website to answer a series of spooktacular questions, ranging from the mundane to a tad bit ludicrous in our new series, “Ask The Geeks.”
In our latest installment, we ask the team…
It’s a Killer Battle Royale. Who is going home the champ?
Dean DeFalco (Vest Lord, General Administrator): It’s Pinhead. The guy rolls around with three other inter dimensional demon people that summon all sorts of insane chains and hooks from out of thin air to murder you with. The guy is probably the definition of what immortal is. While the Hellraiser movies aren’t as popular as other titles, he’s definitely one of the coolest bad guys because you can’t really kill him, you can only put him back in the puzzle box and sometimes that doesn’t even work. I can respect the other big names like Jason or Michael Myers, but they got nothing on Pinhead.
Kris Randazzo (Stone Age Gamer, This Week’s Episode, Waveback): Mister Rogers in a blood-stained sweater.
Dave Marconi (You Shall Not Pass Go): If we’re talking horror movie icons, it’s Michael Meyers. In all honesty, he probably can’t win but lord knows I’d want him to. The dude is like the Peter Parker of the horror-verse. No matter how many hits he takes, he just keeps getting back up. I feel like most would count him out, but the dude is a tank. Not to mention, he’s probably the scariest of the horror icons. That Shatner mask is iconic, as is his killer soundtrack. (Heh, get it?)
Brenda Cierech (Tardy to the Party, 31 Days of Horror): Freddy Krueger. Period. End of discussion.
Janelle Hawkes (Turn It Up): It. Creepy clown with weapons and mental manipulation skills…
Gabbie Robbins (The Think Tank, Gabbie Re-Reads): Oh boy. Bad killers, or just killers, in general, anyone who has killed? And is this fictional killers, or real ones, or both? I would refer you to the famed YouTube video The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny, but I think society as a whole has moved past pretending Mr. Rogers was secretly evil and have decided to love him for who he truly was instead. So I want to say The Thing. If it’s somehow a showdown and they’ve literally all been put together, the Thing has the power to literally become, absorb, mimic, clone, or eat any opponent. If it’s got to be a more sentient and driven individual? That’s got to be my boy, The Joker.
