Fans Get Into Intense Debate Over “Keep Three” Horror Icons Meme

One of the best parts about being a horror fan are the in depth conversations that stem from watching so many of the films. As you likely already know, the horror genre is chock full of both iconic films and characters – many of which have caused a variety of debates among fans. Now there’s debates have helped create a new type of meme that’s been spreading around the internet, where horror fans are asked to keep 3 out of 9 icons that have been provided in a single grid image.

As you can see below, the image went especially viral after Fangoria tweeted their “keep 3” out of 9 horror icons post. The image includes the titular Carrie from the original Carrie film adaptation, Michael Myers from Halloween, Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street, Leatherface from The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, a possessed Regan from The Exorcist, Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th, Chucky from Child’s Play, Ghostface from Scream, and lastly Samara from The Ring.

Clearly, however, with the wide variety of icons provided the image doesn’t exactly promote equal answers from fans. Many have chosen different options that don’t quite align and have prompted, again, many debates across the horror community.

But that’s the fun of posting such a meme and seeing what everyone’s different answers or opinions regarding these celebrated horror icons are.

At a time when everyone is stuck inside due to the current Coronavirus situation, there’s perhaps no better moment to sit down and figure out what our “keep 3” for these horror icons would be. Let us know your own picks in the comments section down below. After all, it will be interesting to see which horror icons you all would be willing to pick out of the provided 9. Would your picks be more focused on the newer 80’s icons, or perhaps the more classic 70’s characters?
