It was a battle of old vs new in the final frame. Dracula is one of the oldest horror icons on our list and Martin Lomax is the most recent horror icon on our list. While Dracula rise to the top is not too surprising Martin’s is a bit shocking.
Dracula handily beat Ghostface and Chucky in the first two rounds then had to go up against the Halloween master himself Michael Myers. Turned out that despite being Halloween season Myers couldn’t compete with a classic.
On the other hand Martin had a tough first couple of rounds. First he had to face Frankenstein’s monster that was an early frontrunner. Martin narrowly beat him in a last minute surge. Then it was on to another front runner Freddy Kreuger. This was a tough one for Martin and came down to 1 vote that put Martin over the top. From there it was easy sailing as he was no contest for Jason and his fan club really turned out in the final round and took all the bite out of Dracula and took the crown.
Why is Martin such a great horror icon? What is it about him that fans seem to love? Unlike the other icons on this list he was only in one movie and he never spoke a single word. But the performance of Laurence Harvey was very unnerving and leaves a lasting impression. He is a loner who has bizarre sexual fetishes and is both sadistic and masochistic. Maybe horror fans can relate to him since he is also a horror fan?
Let us know why you guys think Martin won and why so many voted for him.
