The Ultimate Horror Movie Starting XI

In homage to the latest addition to the Alien franchise and the Friday the 13th video game, we put together the horror genre's greatest starting XI.

When it comes to the world of entertainment, movies, video games and soccer are all near and dear to our hearts. With the release of Alien: Covenant, the Friday the 13th video game and Saturday's Champions League final, we naturally had the idea of creating a starting XI that consists of horror movie icons.

The Starting XI of Horror Movie Icons

The best formation for this squad would be a simple 4-4-2. The reason behind this is the fact that anything else would probably confuse our players. Along with the simplicity of the formation, the 4-4-2 allows the team to have enough defensive depth to withstand any attack, but it also gives the team the ability to counterattack, and this team likes to attack.

Let's take a closer look at our squad.
