In all of the horror novels I've read, a few characters have just really stuck with me. They may have been wonderfully evil, frightening or just striking. They just really seem to stand out as almost more than a fictional character. Who are some of your favorite horror novel characters?


My favorites:

1. Eleanor (Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of hill House)

2. Pennywise the Clown (Stephen King's It)

3. Lestat  (Anne Rice)

4. Jack Torrance (Stephen King's The Shining)

5. Ben Fischer (Richard Matheson's Hell House)

For some reason, my most memorable characters are mostly from Stephen King books.  In no particular order a few that come to mind are -

1) Zelda - from Pet Sematary

2) Dracula

3) Pennywise the Clown

3) Regan from The Exorcist

4) Straker &  Danny Glick from Salem's Lot

5) Johnny Smith - The Dead Zone

6) Alma - Ghost Story
