Genre television is becoming a major presence in primetime TV. Shows like American Horror Story, Hannibal, True Blood and Grimm are dominating the air and doing big numbers for cable and network stations alike. Subsequently, there is a new trend of reviving series once thought to be dead. Netflix is resurrecting Arrested Development, Fox is bringing back 24, TBS rebooted Cougartown. FEARnet is even getting in on the game, bringing back Reaper with an all-new reunion special airing May 28th.

This list is a celebration of the many deaths of the boogeymen we all love to hate, along with the occasional pit stop to poke a playful finger at the maniacs who bought the farm with more of a whimper than a bang.

More than a decade before Freddy Krueger and his knife-hands existed, another sadistic and maniacal monster roamed the cinematic screens in Brazil. Jose Mojica Marins is the writer, director, and actor most commonly known in horror circles as Coffin Joe. Coffin Joe’s legacy all started with At Midnight I’ll Take Your Soul in 1964, the first film in a trilogy of terror-filled tales all starring the man himself.

For a lot of horror fans, watching a film based on a true story makes their viewing experience all the more jarring. And really, we can’t argue with that. Taking in a reimagining of something that actually transpired is inherently more frightening than a film that isn’t grounded in reality.
