Jennifer Tilly and her younger sister Meg have something interesting in common; They both star in horror movies with the monsters Americans are most afraid of.

FrontierBundles selected 15 popular horror films before the turn of the recent century and used Google Trends to analyze their search volume in the last 12 months. Once that information was logged they then documented the villain with the largest search volume in each state.

Turns out the killer doll from Child’s Play and the killer adult-child from Psycho took the top spots across the nation as the scariest villains.

Back in 1983, Meg Tilly starred in the highly anticipated Psycho II which furthered the tale of mama’s boy and serial killer Norman Bates.

Fifteen years later her sister Jennifer joined the second most feared movie villain Chucky in 1993’s Bride of Chucky, the fourth installment in the Child’s Play series.

Who knows what would happen if the sisters Tilly starred in the same horror movie?
