I don't get Chucky as tragic either. 

I also back RC's Universal monsters suggestions and add one he left out.  The Phantom of the Opera. 

Norman bates is also really messed up and it's not his fault.  Not completely.  I'd actually recommend watching the entire Anthony Perkins Psycho series.  They do a great job at building his character without ever turning him into a cliche monster. 

I'm also going to toss out "Baby" Jane from Whatever ever Happened to Baby Jane.  There's a far underrated movie for you that's bound to make you uncomfortable at some point. 

This is really confusing me.

Blame Trevor.  It was his idea.

Jason Vorhees. Born handicapped and forced to kill by the unquiet spirit of his mother. Everytime the poor guy dies someone else figures out a way to accidently bring him back to life.

Speaking of Universal Monsters-the one exception seems to be Dracula. He was just plain evil.
In fact-almost none of Lugosi's roles were sympathetic. In WHITE ZOMBIE-evil. Dr. Mirakle in the MURDERS IN THE RUE MORGUE-evil.The mad doctor Vollin in the Raven-evil. Ygor is the SON and GHOST of FRANKENSTEIN-evil.
 The one exception is in the BLACK CAT. Karloff drives him to insanity by marrying not only his wife but his daughter too-and killing them both!
So Bela does what he must-he skins him alive! Hahahaha!

I did say you could use that pic of me taken at Star Wars The Last Jedi: I really didn't think you'd actually use it.  BounceGiggle Wink

I'd say the Mummy in the Peter Cushing / Christopher Lee version. At no point the "heroes" seem the least interested in his backstory or the reasons behind his actions. Instead, let's fill him with lead, yes. That will do.

Due to the horrifying nature of this film, no one will be admitted to the theatre.

I had quite a lot of empathy for the Great White Shark in Jaws (a border-line horror film maybe). it was just minding its own business: swimming and eating people who chose to swim on his turf.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
