American Horror Story: 1984 teased the resident villain at Camp Redwood named Mr. Jingles. But is Jingles a match for previous AHS villains?
Every season, fans of American Horror Story watch eagerly expecting bloodshed and mayhem. While AHS is different in theme each season, what they all have in common is that they harbor nefarious villains amongst their ranks. Anti-heroes and villains of the series are relentless if not downright evil.
American Horror Story: 1984 will premiere this week with a new villain named Mr. Jingles. According to previews, Mr. Jingles is a sociopath that recently escaped a psychiatric ward and has managed to make his way right into a children’s camp. The masked villain will be hiding in the shadows and popping out when the time is right to torment the teenage counselors.
Will Mr. Jingles take the crown of the most terrifying villain on American Horror Story? I’d argue that Mr. Jingles has some stiff competition in this category. As mentioned before, AHS is known for evil characters, and some of them may be more intimidating than a killer hiding behind bushes with a knife. In fact, some of the previous villains aren’t even alive.
There are at least seven villains from the American Horror story series that could outrank Mr. Jingles as far as being evil is considered. And some of them are far scarier.
Tate was featured in American Horror Story: Murder house and was a terrorist that became a ghost after death. The scariest part about Tate is that as a ghost, he seems sweet and can parade around as a convincing living being. But no matter how nice he looks, he’s not beneath committing unsavory acts like dressing up in latex to sleep with his girlfriend’s mother or killing the exterminator. Did I mention he spawned the Antichrist?
6. Sister Mary Eunice
Mary Eunice made her debut in American Horror Story: Asylum. She was a nun that became possessed by a demon and no one except for the priest she violated even knew. The fact that she can masquerade as one of the holiest symbols of faith while being capable of the worst makes her one of the scariest villains ever encountered in AHS history.
