    Big Jim Rennie because he is insidious an evil mind and has a passion for power. if he had the power he wanted Dale and Julia would probably be shot. Freud said: sex and money are all people are interested in. i would add power. i mean power over peoples a dictator if you will with power comes the sex and money and control.

    Brady Hartfield - he is psychotic, intelligent and without conscience. dangerous attributes. likes to play mind games. instead of the hunted(hartfield) being chased by the hunter(kermit) it is the hunted who becomes the hunter.

    Give me straker any day. or pennywise or flagg. or jim morrison (wha) just making sure you read this=D

    The woman who ended up wanting to sacrifice someone in The Mist. I know several people who could end up doing that under the right circumstance.

    It seems to me that Lloyd and Larry were similar. Loved them both in The Stand.

    On the other hand,

    Roland was a scary dude in his own. You never knew what he was thinking or what he would do.

    Rose in Dr. Sleep has a few psychotic issues she needs to work out. An Mad Hatter with a snaggle tooth comes to mind.

    Also, those hedge animals in The Shining still creep me out.

    Pennywise has given me nightmares thrice, and Bob Anderson (A Good Marriage) has twice, so they'd have to lead the pack. Hands down creepiest is the Space Cowboy from Gerald's Game. That image of him in the moonlight will be with me until I die *shudder*.

    To me The Kid from The Stand was pretty scary because he is so unpredictable. Atleast he got what was coming to him though lol.

    A cautionary tale - what may happen to kids who get excluded from the pack.

    Desperation hurls you straight into hell - no exposition.
    That's scary enough & CE just compounds the horror.

    Yep. Scores high on the Scare-ometer, but counts as a supernatural being on Planet Rudiroo.
    It's the Everyman or Everywoman who scares the crap out of me.

    Cujo couldn't help himself - once rabies has got you, you're toast.

    Too many to count, but a selection:
    - Tom Rogan (It) made me want to knock him into next week (not sure if that counts as scary)
    - Zack McCool (Lisey's Story) as above
    - Jack Torrance (The Shining) because a man in the grip of the grain or grape is truly a scary person, borderline 'thing'
    - That car (From a Buick 8) is scary by definition.

    Sleep well, folks

    Annie Wilkes and Craig Toomey to a large extent because they are too real.

    Didn't say it was Cujo's fault. Just said he's the scariest to me.

    The argument could be made that Annie Wilkes couldn't help herself either. She had a mental illness.
