The Horror Honeys: Can You EVER Trust a Billy?

Can You EVER Trust a Billy?

A Horror History "Top 13 Billy's List" with Revenge Honey Linnie

You can't swing a dead cat in the horror community would hitting a horror character named Billy. Seriously. I dare you to try. Whether it's because the name "Billy" gives off a good, down-home All-American vibe, or because screenwriters are lazy bastards and "Billy" is just the first name that pops into all of their minds, the world may never know. But just the same, we horror fans find ourselves with a plethora of characters from horror history bearing this less-than-remarkable moniker (sorry not sorry, guys named Billy).

So, what better day to pay tribute to a collection of grown men with little kid names than on Spooky Kid Saturday? Join the Honeys as we count down the Top 13 Best Billy's in Horror History!

"Billy" the doll in Dead Silence
Fuck this guy. Fuck him in the wooden ear.

"Billy" the puppet in Saw (seriously, Wan?)
Seriously? A tricycle? Is someone afraid of little girls too?

Will still love you. We will always love you.
