What under rated licensed killers would you like to see?

No offense but there is only so many licenses BHVR can put in the game like Pennywise, Springtrap, Candyman, Xenomorph, Jason Vorheess, Slenderman, The Mummy, The Shining, The Ring, and the Nun that Devs are bound to run out of interesting killers to add in the game at some point.

So why not give some ideas for under rated killers to show there is some interesting killers for backup

I know what you did last Summer

I am gonna be honest, I actually only watched the 2nd film and never the first cause can't find the first DVD at the Library ever. I love the Fisherman design and background which explains why he is in killer mood all the time.

Who would not be made just for some teens to run you over and throw you in the water to be forgotten [Which they also did not fully check to see if he is alive]

The character still is a murderer but with an actual reason.

The Conjuring 2 [The Crooked Man]

Yes I know Conjuring is on the list but everyone talks about the Old Nun and the Doll that just teleports but never my Boi The Crooked Man.

A nursery rhyme turned into a real life nightmare. His power can be related to books or the music box with his song in it. The Crooked man could be a terrifying killer if done right.

Fun fact is he is an SCP and had a 8bit indie horror game 7 or 8 years ago which was pretty good.

Also here is a Fan made video of the Conjuring Crooked man

Ps The Crooked man from the Conjuring is getting his own solo film and it's still being worked on

    Definitely agree on the Fisherman. I think the design is actually pretty cool, I would imagine him in DbD to be always dripping wet. Could have some stealth and stalk power of course. But I guess the devs could come up with something more interesting.

    Also Hannibal Lecter. I often read arguments against him as he is only a human etc. and not really a slasher. But he actually has some pretty cool fighting /attacking scenes, at least described in the books and the tv show remember those, haven’t watched the movies for quite some time. And he is more than just an ordinary human. He is super intelligent, especially regarding human psychology and biology, and has a super human smelling sense. He also has his iconic muzzle, which makes him visually more interesting (though with Trickster we also know that this wouldn’t even be needed)

    Oh! so many!

    Rawhead Rex - a 9ft tall Pagan Demon from the pen of Clive Barker

    Pumpkinhead - Keeping with the theme of 9ft tall Demons... this time summoned by a deepsouth swamp witch.

    The Fog - John Carpenters 3rd best film... (he did a LOT of amazing movies). Would also present an opportunity for another of the great Scream Queens, Adrienne Barbeau

    these are the biggies for me. Although if you mentioned Survivors, I'd be straight in with a call for TONY THE PIMP FROM DEMONS!!!

     Mr. Jangles, a man possessed by 13 evil souls.

    "Eric and his Yankee teenage mates travel South by motorbike to a swampy backwater town in Louisiana, where Sean's father Ray lived, the local tow truck driver, who abandoned the then baby-boy and his mother. Ray recently died, while trying to rescue a voodoo witch and at her urging her trunk, which got opened and released the poisonous serpents possessed by the souls of truly evil sinners she trapped in them. Ray was bitten and possessed as the car sunk, and shortly after it's dragged out rises as an 'undead' zombie, who murders without provocation and is immune to lethal weapons. He soon finds the teens' trace and proves his indiscriminately evil blood-thirst by charging his only offspring equally lethally. However they were warned by Eden's friend Cece, the witch's granddaughter, who explained the situation in her home and assures them when the zombie attacks it's safe thanks to a 'blessed' spell preventing evil from entering; alas the chain- and crowbar-waving undead finds a way round that: drag them out of it and make it fall apart."

    Terry Akers or Jin Yoshida from frictional games SOMA. Very underrated i feel like doesn't get enough representation in horror crossovers. Amnesia had its spotlight in the crossovers and it saddens me SOMA never received that. I think they'd fit well into DBD's grimy aesthetic. Plus they have a pretty defined set of abilities that would make it easy to implement a power for them.
