|Best Movie Villains of All Time|
Ralph Fienes as Lord Voldemort in Harry Potter Series Perhaps he can't be named, but he sure can be villainous. After the fallout from Rowling's little Dumbledore secret, perhaps we need to include the Hogwart headmaster on the list.
David Prowse as Darth Vader in the Star Wars series THE villain of an entire generation of moviegoers. Or is the voice of James Earl Jones actually more villainous? And by the way, is it still a spoiler if we tell you Darth Vader is Luke's father? Just wondering.
Anthony Hopkins as Dr. Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs Just don't try to count him in your census lest you become a side dish to a legumous repast.
Anthony Perkins as Norman Bates in Psycho (1960) Many villains in the Alfred Hitchcock arsenal come to mind, but none carry the impact of this seemingly passive hotel nightclerk. He's not so bad until that pesky Oedipus Complex kicks in.
Robert Englund as Freddie Krueger in A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) The stuff of well, nightmares. Don't child killers get special treatment in prison?
Godzilla in Gojira (1954) Our first look at the repercussions of an atomic world. One tough hombre as even fighter planes can't bring down this bad guy.
Faye Dunaway as Joan Crawford in Mommie Dearest (1981) A villain of a different sort... a villainesse if you will. But villainous nonetheless. "I can handle the socks." Watch it and you'll understand.
Boris Karloff as Frankestein's monster in Frankenstein (1931) Karloff in any of his numerous roles works, but with this one he started the whole Universal monster craze.
Mikael Spreitz as Ronald Niedermann in The Girl Who Played With Fire (2010) A big burly bear of a man that resembles a cross between Dolf Lundgren and Leslie Nielson... only a bit more menacing. Possesses a unique genetic abnormality called congenital analgesia which makes him unable to feel pain. What a great physical trait for a movie villain!
Thomas Hardy as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises (2012) - From DC comics Batman: Vengeance of Bane #1 to The Dark Knight's main foe. One bad dude!
