10. Merman from The Cabin in the Woods (2012)

2 of 11

He wasn’t director Drew Goddard’s primary antagonist in Cabin in the Woods, however the merman’s gruesome, disgusting appearance startled audiences and began a cult following simultaneously.  Ever since the film’s long-awaited 2012 release, fans have clamored for a sequel or a prequel—anything involving the repulsive, water-breathing humanoid.  What’s his story? Why did Bradley Whitford root so hard for him?  So many monsters dominate, thrill, and light-up the screen, but the merman stays closest in mind with to that enormous cobra and the faceless girl with a hundred sharp teeth.  We could do a top ten on Cabin in the Woods alone.
