The Top Five Unkillable Screen Baddies

Did you ever notice that baddies in action films can be killed with a haphazard bullet casually fired in their general direction, but baddies in horror films can survive anything short of having a planet dropped on their head? Why don’t evil megalomaniacs hire their henchmen from horror genres? They’d save a huge amount in wages, not to mention the flowers they have to continuously send to henchwidows. Here’s five of the unkillablest…

  2. They sure don’t Candice. just like the Goonies

  3. Lol Michael Myers is my favorite though! But seriously, why don’t they ever die?!

  4. Jason Voorhees used to scare me a lot when i was a kid and first watched Friday the 13th. Freddy had that effect but at a lesser degree. Wile E Coyote is my favorite i guess 😀
