What's better than popping in a scary movie with a bowl of popcorn next to you? When the main character is easy on the eyes, of course. Somehow horror movies are 10x better when you have Freddie Prinze Jr. attempting to cover up a crime in I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997) or Jeff Goldblum dealing with a science experiment gone wrong in The Fly (1986). Ahead, we rounded up the hottest men in horror movies of all time. You're welcome.

Brad Pitt in Interview With the Vampire (1994)

Hottest vampire ever (sorry, R-Pattz. Also, Twilight isn’t a horror movie).

Tom Cruise in Interview With the Vampire (1994)

Lestat, the original vampire who made Brad Pitt’s Louis into a blood-loving hottie.

Kevin Bacon in Flatliners (1990)

Kevin plays a medical student who tries to find out what comes after death by conducting near-death experiments. What more could go wrong? (Also, hi, Kiefer Sutherland—don’t worry, he’s in this later).

Vin Diesel in Pitch Black (2000)

Is there anything hotter than a bad boy who can see in the dark?

Justin Long in Jeepers Creepers (2001)

Meet Darry, a college student who drives home for spring break and, of course, doesn’t make it home in one piece. Nope. Not even close.

Al Santos in Jeepers Creepers 2 (2003)

Al plays your typical jock who encounters the Creeper with his teammates and a group of cheerleaders. Things don’t end well for Dante, but at least his pretty face survives (sort of).

keanu reeves dracula
Columbia Pictures
7 of 50
Keanu Reeves in Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992)

Keanu plays a rookie solicitor who’s engaged to Winona Ryder, who unfortunately looks like Count Dracula’s dead wife. Don’t worry, it works out for everyone in the end (unless your name is Dracula).

Jared Leto in Urban Legend (1998)

You’d think that Paul the student journalist would debunk all the urban legends within the first five minutes of the film…

Paul Walker in Joy Ride (2001)

Paul stars as university student Lewis Thomas, who learns the hard way why pranking someone named Rusty Nail is a bad idea.

Jay Hernandez in Hostel (2006)

Here is Jay in one of the few shots of the film where he isn’t bloody or missing any fingers.

Sebastian Stan in The Covenant (2006)

Reasons to watch The Covenant: (1) hot men with special powers, (2) Sebastian Stan, and (3) the next two slides.

Chace Crawford in The Covenant (2006)

See? Also, these hot men with special powers have some fun indoor pool scenes...

Screen Gems

Taylor Kitsch in The Covenant (2006)

...And shower scenes. Here is Taylor about to take a shower and slowly morph into Tim Riggins (probably).

ryan reynolds The Amityville Horror
MGM
14 of 50
Ryan Reynolds in The Amityville Horror (2005)

It’s unclear if the real-life George Lutz had glistening abs while he and his family tried to fight off the scary shit that went down in their new home. Ryan’s version has a six-pack, and it’s one of the best parts about this remake.

Lakeshore Entertainment
15 of 50
Morris Chestnut in The Cave (2005)

For a super-hot survival expert, Morris has a pretty vanilla name, Top. Perhaps it’s referring to where he prefers to be during sexy times?

daniel dae kim the cave
Lakeshore Entertainment
16 of 50
Daniel Dae Kim in The Cave (2005)

Top’s fellow explorer also happens to be a really good cameraman. You can trust him in dark places.

laurence fishburne
Paramount Pictures
17 of 50
Laurence Fishburne in Event Horizon (1997)

A black hole, a missing crew, space, and the good looks and intelligence of one Captain Miller — what more could you want in a sci-fi horror movie?

chad michael murray house of wax
Warner Bros. Pictures
18 of 50
Chad Michael Murray in House of Wax (2005)

Wouldn’t you trust this pretty face with your life while trying to escape a creepy town full of creepy wax sculptures and a pair of crazy brothers?

josh hartnett
Miramax Films
19 of 50
Josh Hartnett in The Faculty (1998)

Who could forget Josh in The Faculty, a film about what happens when you don’t do your homework. JK: the teachers are controlled by aliens and Zeke (Josh) and his friends try to save the day. Zeke is also repeating senior year so yeah, there’s a lot going on.

Usher in The Faculty (1998)

Oh, that's right, Usher's in this too. Hi, Usher.

devon sawa
New Line Cinema
21 of 50
Devon Sawa in Final Destination (2000)

Just like how you can’t escape or cheat death in the Final Destination movies, the world can never escape Devon’s baby blues.

bill pullman
Universal Pictures
22 of 50
Bill Pullman in The Serpent and the Rainbow (1987)

Right after this, Bill's character gets buried alive in blood, only to discover it’s a bad dream. Or is it? (Honestly, doesn’t matter. Look. At. Him.)

george clooney
Miramax Films
23 of 50
George Clooney in From Dusk Till Dawn (1996)

~Hot vampire killer/fugitive alert~.

kiefer sutherland
Warner Bros. Pictures
24 of 50
Kiefer Sutherland in The Lost Boys (1987)

Long before the Cullens in Twilight, another gang of vampires ruled the world (OK fine, just the beach town of Santa Clara, California). Here is that gang’s leader.

jason patric
Warner Bros. Pictures
25 of 50
Jason Patric in The Lost Boys (1987)

And here is that gang’s conquest Michael Emerson, who must decide who has more fun: vampires or humans.

kurt russell
Universal Pictures
26 of 50
Kurt Russell in The Thing (1982)

It’s hard not to fall in love with a helicopter pilot named MacReady. He has a sexy beard and fights aliens in the dead of winter. Your body will never be MacReady.

jeff goldblum
20th Century Fox
27 of 50
Jeff Goldblum in The Fly (1986)

This film confirms (1) scientists can be really hot, (2) vintage Jeff Goldblum is bae, and (3) it’s totally fine to be attracted to someone who is half human, half fly.

johnny depp nightmare
New Line Cinema
28 of 50
Johnny Depp in A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

It really is too bad that Johnny and his smooth skin get swallowed alive by his bed (aka Freddy Krueger).

taye diggs house on haunted hill
Warner Bros. Pictures
29 of 50
Taye Diggs in House on Haunted Hill (1999)

This 1999 remake of the 1959 classic is basically Big Brother in a haunted house. Taye Diggs is the most attractive contestant.

skeet ulrich scream
Dimension Films
30 of 50
Skeet Ulrich in Scream (1996)

Never trust a pretty face with greasy, hot bangs.
