Ever get that creepy feeling from someone. The feeling that they might be a sociopath or have some sort of ulterior motive when looking your way. Sometimes do you get the feeling that someone might be a robot or even a walking corpse. Well I have pinpointed one of the main attributes to why we get that feeling. It is all in the eyes. Certain people are just born with a creepy set of peepers. The kind of eyes that follow you around a room without moving. The kind of eyes that you can’t really tell the color because they appear to be as dark as their soul. The kind of eyes that you wish came with a pair of Bono wrap around shades. Well below I have discovered the top 5 subjects that I think for better or worse have the deadest eyes around.
5. Benedict Cumberbatch
Maybe it is his role as brash crime solving savant Sherlock or his time portraying slightly autistic code wunderkind Alan Turing, but the robotic with a slightly dickish nature of Benedict Cumberbatch is only exemplified by the loss of life in his eyes. While a romantic saying of “getting lost in someones eyes” may be applicable here, that would definitely be a place you would want to pull over and ask for directions before you travel down the wrong road and end up slaughtered like Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
4. Robin Wright
Now this might be swayed by her most popular role, serving as deceptive and manipulative first lady on House of Cards, but Wright has the look of a someone you just can’t trust. I never know if she is plotting twelve steps ahead of me to have me kidnapped and flown to Guantanamo Bay for water boarding, or if she just wants to borrow a cup of sugar. Never has the smoky eye look been used on such a dangerous pair of gazers.
3. My Friend Dan
Years of hard living and possibly one too many chilly willy’s have this former playboy with a look that seems more in tune with a walking coma victim then a functioning human being. Whenever I am talking to him I have to reassure myself that yes he is alive, and yes he is understanding that I am saying to him. People always say that eyes are the window to the soul, well apparently it’s pitch black midnight wherever his soul is hanging out.
Let me just leave this one for the eternal words of Batholomew M. Quint: “Y’know the thing about a shark, he’s got… lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll’s eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn’t seem to be livin’… until he bites ya. And those black eyes roll over white, and then… oh, then you hear that terrible high-pitch screamin’, the ocean turns red, and spite of all the poundin’ and the hollerin’, they all come in and they… rip you to pieces.”
1. Ray Liotta
In my mind there is no single person scarier on the planet just looking at you than Ray Liotta. Whenever the Cheshire Cat look-a-like smiles I get this creeping feeling deep in my bones that he is plotting to kill me. With soulless eyes glaring into your whole being, any gentle or kind action becomes one of hostility and malice. If he did ever portray a clown like Joe Pesci alluded, I would completely understand peoples phobia’s.
