It’s that spooky time of year when we watch monster movies, visit haunted houses, and eat more candy than arguably any three people should ingest. Halloween is coming soon, and it’s never too early to get in the festive horror mood and amp up the nightmare quota in your life. What better way to throw a little gas on that fire than with some truly horrifying Funko pop vinyl figures?
Everyone knows Funko, and many people can’t get enough of the little vinyl toys. We love when they’re based on our favorite movies, when there’s a variety of options for our favorite characters, and even when the designs go horribly wrong and the end result is something that’s just, well, ugly. We want them.
So as your starting to put up your Halloween decor, take a look at these 19 Funko Pops and decide what kind of nightmare fuel they’d add to your life. Why not horrify a Trick or Treater visiting your house with a disturbing Pennywise or–even worse–Donkey from Shrek?
Take a look at the 19 most nightmarish Pops you can guy below. Then make sure to get caught up on all the exclusive Funko Pops that will be available at New York Comic Con this year.
1. Pennywise (It)
Following the conclusion of It Chapter 2, it’s fair to say we’ve seen Pennywise do some horrible things. This particular version of the dancing clown, though, is enough to send shivers down your spine. Do yourself a favor and place this one in the nightstand next to your bed, so it’s staring at you when you make up in the morning.
2. Pennywise (It: The Miniseries)
The original Pennywise wasn’t so blunt about being terrifying, but Tim Curry’s take on the dancing clown was nightmarish in its own right. The simplicity of his creepy clown look, along with the jagged teeth on this Pop, would make it a super scary addition to any collection.
3. Twisty (American Horror Story)
Why stop the clown scares now? Twisty may not be as iconic as Pennywise, but this AHS Pop and his disturbingly toothy smile are incredibly haunting.
4. Sweet Tooth (Twisted Metal)
One last clown because they are all kind of awful. Sweet Tooth from the Twisted Metal franchise is amazing if you’re a fan of the video games. If you’re not, it just looks like this clown is plotting horrible ways to kill you.
5. Black Phillip (The Witch)
We all know The Witch is a masterpiece of terror. Still, chances are you never expected a toy goat to send a shiver down your spine. This smiling Black Phillip is creepy, soaked in blood, and just wants to be your friend.
6. The Grady Twins (The Shining)
The Shining still reigns as one of the scariest movies of all time, and it’s a scientifically-proven fact that there’s nothing more terrifying in a horror film than creepy kids. So naturally, the best way to commemorate your love of The Shining–and freak out your friends–is with the Pop version of the Grady twins. Come play with them, Danny.
7. Frozen Jack Torrance (The Shining)
While you’re thinking about The Shining, this Pop of frozen Jack Torrance is sure to give you some nightmares. It’s a little off-putting how much this actually looks like Jack Nicholson, given how little detail there is in his face. Those eyebrows, though, wow.
8. Donkey (Shrek)
What’s that? Shrek isn’t a horror movie? Tell that to this immensely haunting Donkey Pop. Why is he smiling like that? What’s wrong with him? Why is he looking at you like that?
Speaking of untraditional nightmares, who allowed this Goofy Pop to be made? Honestly, it looks like the corpse of Goofy.
10. Xenomorph (Alien)
At first glance, this is honestly kind of an adorable take on the Xenomorph. Doesn’t look too offensive, right? But then you look inside its mouth and see the secondary head popping out and it’s game over. It turns out every version of the Xenomorph is creepy.
11. Chucky (Bride of Chucky)
There are a bunch of Chucky Funko Pops, all in various states of bleeding and stitched up. This one, though, is by far the worst. This Chucky has been nearly destroyed and is still determined to cut you. So have fun collecting him.
12. Regan (Exorcist)
A creepy child possessed by a demon and covered in vomit? That’s nightmare fuel if ever there has been. The Exorcist is a great movie, but we can’t suggest you stock your shelf with this cursed toy.`
13. Nemesis (Resident Evil)
Nemesis was always downright creepy in Resident Evil. The character design is just haunting, with its head essentially stapled together and skin pulled back to reveal its teeth. So, naturally, Funko decided it should be turned into a tiny plastic toy that’s just as scary as the one in the game.
14. Bad Ape (War for the Planet of the Apes)
As with Donkey and Goofy, the thing that makes Bad Ape so scary is bizarre character design. This Pop’s stare burrows into your soul and will absolutely give you ape-filled nightmares.
15. Gentlemen (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
Oh, the Gentlemen. These guys–who were not vampires–were one of the scariest villains to ever stir up trouble on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. They move silently and never stopped smiling that horrifically toothy grin. Why wouldn’t you want that horrible smile aimed directly at you?
16. Weeping Angel (Doctor Who)
Of course one of the scariest villains in the history of Doctor Who are also one of the scariest Pop Funkos. Make sure to keep an eye on this Pop and don’t let it touch you.
17. Wendigo (Hannibal)
The Wendigo, or the Stag Man, was one of the most haunting visuals that appeared on-screen on Hannibal. The Pop version isn’t quite as scary, but it certainly stirs those same feelings and the foggy grey eyes on it are upsetting.
18. Dementor (Harry Potter)
Why is the Funko version of the Dementor somehow scarier than the actual character in the Harry Potter films? This Pop is horrifying, especially its creepy mouth.
19. Pale Man (Pan’s Labyrinth)
Its eyes are in its hands. What else do you need to know? Guillermo del Toro is good at creating disturbing creatures for his films and Pale Man is one of the best. This Pop manages to capture the upsetting aspects of the character and put them in doll form, to creep you out until the end of time. Sweet dreams!
