Top Ten Most Insane Villains


August 2, 2015 - This isn't based off how evil they are. It's based off how INSANE they are. Which is probably why most of your favorites (i.e. Darth Vader) aren't listed. These are those freaks who we could tell just didn't have it all together up in their skulls. Don't agree with the list?

The Top Ten

The Joker - The Dark Knight
So difficult to choose between The Joker and Hannibal Lector! I love them both, I mean they are both really insane and both actors won an Oscar by getting in the skin of these characters... God Dammit! Sorry Anthony, Heath was just a little more insane than you... I'm really sorry.
what doesn't kill you, only makes you stranger


Hes genius in the movie and still creeps me out to this day


2Hannibal Lector - Silence of the Lambs
I know Buffalo Bill said it, but regardless:
It rubs the lotion on its skin, or it gets the hose again.
A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some favorites beans and a nice chianti.

Yup, totally insane.

3Alex DeLarge - A Clockwork Orange
Welly, welly, welly, welly, welly, welly, well. To what do I owe the extreme pleasure of this surprising visit?

4Michael Myers - Halloween Series

5John Doe - Se7en
Though, he's calm and calculating when he wants to be, Doe is one of the most far gone movie villains, and unlike most on this list, he actually thinks he is doing the right thing- he kills people in grotesque ways and sees it as some sort of vigilantism in the name of God ('God works in mysterious ways').
This guy makes the Joker pale. Sure, the Joker is a terrorist, but this guy kills people in the most gruesome ways before leading up to one of cinema's greatest endings.

6Jigsaw Killer - Saw
do you wanna play a game?

7Leatherface - The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

8Cannibalistic Cliff Men - The Hills Have Eyes

9Peter Foley - Copycat

10Norman Bates - Psycho

The Contenders

11Buffalo Bill - Silence of the Lambs

12The Joker - Batman (1989)

13Jason Voorhees - Friday the 13th Series

14Kefka Palazzo - Final Fantasy 6
"Life...dreams...hope...where do they come from, and where do they go? None of that JUNK is enough to fulfill your hearts! DESTRUCTION! DESTRUCTION IS WHAT MAKES LIFE WORTH LIVING! Destroy, destroy, DESTROY! LET'S DESTROY EVERYTHING! "
A man who just want to destroy the world with no apparent reason is really insane indeed.
He is dressed like a clown and has the most evil laugh I have ever heard. Enough said.

15Freddy Krueger - A Nightmare on Elm Street Series
A pedophile who wants to slash you with his glove and attacks you in your dreams. Now tell me he isn't insane.

But I still think he's kind of awesome.
How is Jason anywhere NEAR crazier than Freddy? Seriously, Freddy's at 17 and Jason's at 13, What?

And Freddy makes Ledger Joker look like a chump, just saying'
I may be insane but he is my fave forever. Robert Englund rocked this role to its core! Freddy's the best

16Jack Torrance - The Shining
I remember being freaked out when he poked his head through the door and said "Here's Johnny".

17Mr. Teatime - The Hogfather

18Tyler Durden - Fight Club

19T-Rex - Jurassic Park

20Dr. Andonuts - Radiation's Halloween Hack
