Top 10 Movie Villains

From Alan Rickman in Die Hard to a 15 year-old murdering, rapist – I have constructed 10 of the best movie villains of all time.

So…in no particular order…

1) Nurse Ratched One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

Nurse Ratched

Nurse Ratched

Men shouldn’t strangle women; Nurse Ratched is the exception to this rule. Look at her. With her cold, pale, enamel face: utterly emotionless. She grins, smiling; deep down she’s making her plans and slowly manipulating you and your mind.

2) Hans Gruber – Die Hard

 Hans Gruber fits into every stereotype of what a badass movie villain should be:

1) He’s German

2) He’s played by a British actor

3) He has a beard

4) He’s involved in a scene where he has a gun against an innocent man’s head and counts from 3 to 1 to get information

5) He’s played by ALAN RICKMAN!

3) Alex DeLarge A Clockwork Orange

Alex DeLarge

Alex DeLarge

Alex DeLarge is your average teenager of a future dystopian Britain in Stanley Kubrick‘s darkly-comic, disturbing masterpiece. He beats up strangers, consumes hallucinogenics to prepare him for evening of ‘fun’, commits murder, and rapes women.

Oh…and he’s 15 years old.

4) Michael Myers Halloween

Michael Myers

Michael Myers massacred his sister with a butcher’s knife when he was a little boy. He’s locked up, and years later, he escapes on a killing spree, where he kills again…and again…and again…

5) Leatherface – The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Leatherface

Leatherface

Leatherface and his family are cannibals. He captures and ties up a girl to a chair for ‘dinner time’. He puts teenagers on meat-hooks, puts random organs in a freezer. Oh, and his ‘leatherface mask’ is made of human flesh…charming.

6) Tyler Durden – Fight Club

Tyler Durden

Tyler Durden

 Tyler Durden is the ultimate badboy. He makes a fight club. Becomes a terrorist. Snips of guys ‘gentlemen’s vegetables’. Puts bodily fluids in soup when he’s working as a waiter…and he’s so damned good in bed he makes Marla Singer fall out of bed after one of their many ‘passionate sessions’.

He’s hot to. The lucky bastard.

7) Lord Voldermort – Harry Potter

Lord Voldermort

Lord Voldermort

class=”mceTemp”>He’s a terrorist wizard who runs a terrorist organisation consisting of a bunch of evil middle-aged men who call themselves ‘Death Eaters’. If you’re his enemy he’ll kill you, and if you’re his ‘friend’, he’ll hack your arm off with a knife (and if he’s feeling nice, he’ll make a new one for you out of metal).

class=”mceTemp”>Oh, and he’s got a 10 inch elder wand…cheeky cheeky cheeky.

class=”mceTemp”>8) Darth Vader Star Wars

class=”mceTemp”>Do I really need to explain why he’s on this list?…

class=”mceTemp”>9) Jaws – James Bond

JAWS!

JAWS!

class=”mceTemp”>He has metal teeth for crying out loud!

class=”mceTemp”>10) Frank Blue Velvet

Frank

Frank

As much as I despise David Lynch’s so-called ‘masterpiece’, I cannot deny the factor that Frank makes this movie the disturbing nightmare that it is. Blue Velvet is haunting, and you could even say frightening due to Frank.

Frank is a violent sociopath who sexually abuses a nightclub singer with a pair of scissors – if that doesn’t earn him a place on this list, God knows what else will.
