Silent Killers Vs. Talking Killers
#1
Pretty simple, but a surprisingly divisive topic.

We have a payload to deliver to the heart of our nearest star. We are delivering that payload cause that star is dying and, if it dies, we die, everything dies. So that is our mission, there is nothing, literally nothing, more important than completing our mission. End of story.

Both can be effective depending how they're used, but talking has Billy, Early Ghostface, and Freddy so

Talking by far. silent killers can be creepy but ultimately tend to be samey in horror. I like talking killers cause it makes them more human and scary

Honestly, I have never found a silent horror move killer that scared me. And they definitely start to get samey with only a few exceptions (often enough, relying on what others are saying about them).

The killers I find scariest and most interesting have consistently been ones who speak and have fully fleshed out personalities of their own.

In slashers it isn't quite as important for a killer to have in depth motivations, personalities, etc. but its more true to life which is why I find them so much better. It goes beyond Freddy (who is iconic and amazing) but most silent killers fall flat for me since they just wanna be Michael/Jason.

Last I checked, Scream 3 was the only one where Ghostface said "that makes me... angry!" and it wasn't over the phone.

I voted for silent killers because, even though a well-done talking killer can be better, it's also harder to get right. You pretty much have to give some personality to your killer beyond just the strong, silent type, and it's really easy to fuck that up.
