Award season may be over, but that won’t stop Zena (of Real Queen of Horror) and I from handing out fashion fines and arrests in the horror world. We’ve already rewarded some of the best dressed in horror, and now it’s time for us to count down some of the worst.
You may recognize many on this list for being heavyweights in the horror game. While having an outfit that is iconic and mainstream is great for their characters, it doesn’t necessarily make them well dressed. We risk our lives and poke fun at the fashion sense of some of the biggest monsters in the genre.
Who would make your worst dressed list?
Amanda: Don’t get me wrong: I’m a Freddy girl, I’ve always been a Freddy girl, and I’ll always be a Freddy girl. But, the green and red sweater makes him look more like a drunk uncle at the family holiday party instead of the vicious psychopathic killer that he truly is. Clearly his outfit has worked for him throughout the years, and he wears a fedora well. However, that doesn’t make the outfit any less ugly.
Zena: Wearing a dirty Christmas sweater with holes (even though it’s no where near Christmas) isn’t something we all like to see. Mr. Krueger, do us all a favor: if you insist on wearing funky, sweat-infested sweaters…wash them; or better yet, take them to the cleaners. Perhaps they could fix those holes that seem unfixable. Those scissor hands are pretty creative, but not quite fashionable. I’ll let you slide for the fedora because I’m actually a fan…at least you got that right!
The overalls were cute in the 80s, but in a time where dolls come with five different outfits and accessories, Chucky is totally out of style. If you’re going to be stuck in the body of a hideous doll, you might as well make the best of it and try for an outfit change. You have to make yourself look more appealing to the kiddies if you want to stand any chance of stealing their soul and body!
Jason Voorhees has a face that only a mother could love, and a style envied by farmers everywhere. If Jason
was going for the “farmer-chic” look, then he nailed it. But, Jason doesn’t farm–he murders sex-crazed teens. The horror fashion police give him a slight pass for his unfortunate and tragic situation, but he got a second chance at life (or something like it); a second chance to look better. And he failed to look better. We don’t blame the kids at camp for teasing him–have you seen his collar shirts and un-tailored trousers?! Don’t even get us started on that bag he wears on his head–OR THE HOCKEY MASK.
