Update: The results are in. Not surprisingly, Spawn ended up being a very popular choice for this poll. Hit the jump below to check out how our readers voted.

Earlier: So far, NetherRealm Studios' Mortal Kombat series has featured Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, the Predator, Leatherface, and the Alien Xenomorph as horror movie / suspense thriller guest icons in the playable roster.

As a result, we can't help but think that the upcoming Mortal Kombat 11 title is ramping up to announce another horror themed icon like those that were previously mentioned. But which characters would create the most hype among the fans?

We've created a poll to answer this question. Each user is allowed up to five choices. Of course, the characters that have already appeared in previous titles could potentially return so we've included them in the poll as well.

Other options include Halloween's Michael Myers, Scream's Ghostface, Pennywise, Hellraiser's Pinhead, Psycho's Norman Bates, Saw's Jigsaw, the Ring's Samara Morgan, and a few other villains.

Of course, we also included some of the more interesting protagonists of suspense thrillers like Spawn, Blade, and Evil Dead's Ash Williams. There have already been a number of potential hints that seem to indicate Spawn's presence.

Although Slender Man and Five Nights at Freddy's have mostly been popularized thanks to video games, Slender Man has had a movie and Freddy will be getting a movie in the future. These two are special cases.

Keep in mind that we decided to just stick with the major icons. We also opted to avoid the Universal Monsters like Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, and the Mummy.
