"Groovy." Ash

Played By: Bruce Campbell
Film: Evil Dead I, II & Army of Darkness

Why He's On The List: Iconic horror characters are always bad guys - Freddy, Michael, Jason, Chucky, Pinhead. Well, almost always: Bruce Campbell's indestructible Ash is a truly iconic horror hero and, in Evil Dead II especially, Exhibit A in any argument that Campbell deserved to be a bigger star. Morphing from shrieking, possibly insane shrinking violet to grim, grey-haired Mad Max-a-like in the blink of an eye, Ash is a delirious, delicious, dimwitted parody of action heroes.

Finest Hour: Virtually the whole of Evil Dead II, but we'll go for the tooling-up montage which ends with Ash, chainsaw bolted to his missing hand, reborn. Groovy, indeed.
