He didn't wear it long in "Silence of the Lambs," but when Hannibal Lecter donned the mask, it made him even scarier.
3. Hannibal Lecter, "Silence of the Lambs" (1991): While most masked villains choose to wear their masks, Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) is at times forced to wear a restraint muzzle, and he's none too happy about it.
Lecter, of course, spends most of his time in "Silence of the Lambs" encased in a glass cell as safeguard against any interpersonal contact, because if he has the chance, he'll eat his victims. Despite his cannibalistic ways, Hannibal's psychological prowess is needed to help FBI trainee Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) track down a serial killer.
Part of the deal is that Hannibal gets a break from his glass confines, as long as he allows the feds to strap him to a dolly and restraint his mug with the muzzle. Hannibal's mask isn't so much as scary as what he'll do to you if he gets a chance to take it off.

2. Michael Myers, "Halloween" (1978): It's hard to believe that one of the scariest masks in movie history -- Michael Myers' pale white, expressionless fake mug -- was an altered "Star Trek" mask of Mr. animated himself, William Shatner.
Returning home to Haddonfield, N.J., to wreak some Halloween havoc, Myers (billed as "The Shape" in the credits and played by three different actors) is frightening because his emotions are effectively a representation of the blank stare of his mask. His actions are cold and calculated, and his kills are executed with unflinching authority. A psychotic killer institutionalized since childhood, there's no redemption ahead for Myers, a masked movie villain who has no soul.
No matter how good, bad or ugly the sequels were (or the subsequent reboot films), Myers' mask has never failed to scare audiences. He's the epitome of evil.
