I'd pick these ones, considering that Freddy Krueger, Michael Meyers and the rest of the lot have all been turned into a joke:

Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) - The Shining

Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins) - Psycho

Hannibal "The Cannibal" Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) - The Silence of the Lambs

I'm still good with Freddy and Michael. Even Jason was pretty scary in Friday the 13th Part 2. Well, when I was 13. I'm not sure I'd consider Jack Torrance a "bogeyman," but I'm good with Norman.

I'd also list:

Candyman

Sadako

Lector

the Zuni fetish doll

Pennywise

I'm assuming this list doesn't include monsters, hence, no Alien, Bruce (Jaws), Thing or the like. I also don't necessarily consider Dracula, Frankenstein's monster, Imhotep or any of the Universal monsters bogeymen.

Hmm... I wonder why you made that choice. I mean, Pennywise is not portrayed as a terrifying character in the film IT (which, in my opinion, is an appalling movie that totally rapes the book). Rather, the director opted to illustrate him as a comic character that doesn't manage to scare people at all (at least that's what I thought). We all float down here...

Maybe I'm coming more off the book.

Sloth, The Goonies. Gave me nightmares in 1985.

Exactly. And that's one of my childhood favorites, by the way.

Dr Evan Rendell (Dr. Giggles)

Anyone who can giggle like a schoolgirl who has just heard the word 'boobies' while performing major surgery on themselves has got my respect.
