    I wonder...did you ever find, through how they were written or just from your own point of view..any of the Dallas characters, frightening?

    I admit to finding Jock scary at times - but more from an intimidating point of view. At times, JR could be frightening, but maybe not in the same league as BD Calhoun, who when I first starting watching him, did scare me a lot. The day he kidnapped Sue Ellen I was truly terrified (and remained so for a week).

    Another frightening character for me was Connie - the crazy lady who stalked Ray. I remember being really scared by that storyline, particularly when she creeps into the house and stabs him.

    Jessica Montford was another very well written and scary character. Quite possibly the scariest of them all. Some may also have been frightened by Angelica Nero (or at least her outfits). Katherine Wentworth of course could chill us all to the bone.

    So who in your opinion is the scariest of them all? Feel free to add to those suggested!

    Just realised a lot of them are females....... !!!!!

    Whilst I am tempted to say Charlie and Jenna I think JR and Harry McSween were the scariest for me. Katherine wasn’t so much scary, more utterly fabulous

    Jeremy Wendell. I'm sure he was involved in the Kennedy assassination.

    Jock. I watched it when I was a kid, so that may have had something to do with it, lol, but I think Jim Davis played the part very, very well.

    Clayton should definitely be on this list. He threatened to kill Parmalee in front of all of Dallas.

    To me, the screaming lady in the drunk tank with Sue Ellen was the scariest person I ever saw on Dallas.

    from Michael jacksons Thriller ad lol

    For me it was Jock, he was a bully, intimidating and a chauvinist - I wouldnt like to cross him

    Angelica Nero was too camp and badly acted for me to be anything other than someone who shouldnt have been in Dallas.

    I’m going to go with maniacally fearsome armed robber/kidnapper/groovy van owner Willie Gust, seen here seconds after calling the cops who have him surrounded “turkeys”

    Bit of a tough one for me. I was tossing up between Jessica and Katherine. I understand many on here would argue Katherine wasn't scary but that hospital scene when she is standing over Bobby with a poison filled syringe still gets me everytime. She was wicked. The problem was I felt real empathy for Katherine because I really wanted her to remain on Dallas and was a little annoyed how the producers ultimately treated the character. No sooner had Katherine confessed to the police and JR she bolted Dallas only to appear in a fleeting - blink and you'll miss it - confrontation with Bobby...again at the hospital. What is it with Katherine and hospitals.

    In the end I chose Jessica because Alexis Smith was so damn good at playing the role. The following scene creeps me out everytime....

    Great answers guys! Thanks! I didn't think of Patricia, that's a good one. She didn't scare me, I just wanted to slap the crap out of her.

    Oh my God it's like Reverend Kane from Poltergeist 2 coming up the driveway.

    Last year I made a little video for Halloween spoofing the AHS opening. I think the scariest actors or scenes from "Dallas" are all here!

    The screaming lady reminds me of Connie - maybe it was the same actress. ;-)
