The 20 Freakiest Movie Villains Of All Time

For every hero, there’s an equal but opposing villain cloud-covering the virtuous and moral attributes of a film’s protagonist. Usually, we’re attracted to these cinematic bad boys in the same way we stop and watch a car crash or a dumpster fire: totally consumed by a fight-or-flight euphoria wrapped up in confusion, wild emotions, and often anger. But, if there’s anything we know to be true in this world, it’s that we love to hate villains! So, purely for entertainment (maybe also a curiosity of the dark side), we’ve taken a deep dive into the abyss of the creepy, the depraved, and the sociopathic. Enjoy this Mandatory list of the worst of the worst, otherwise known as the best movie villains of all time!
