The Worst & Most Evil Movie Villains of All Time

The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Vukmir from A Serbian Film

Vukmir is an "art" film director. His films mostly include snuff and sexual torture. The most disgusting thing about it, is that a lot it is aimed at children and babies. He is by far the most evil villain in cinema. The character is one of the most realistically portrayed villains as well. The only other villain that mite even compare to his grotesque nature is the duke in Salo. SPOILER ALERT: When one of his victims gets the better of him and bashes his head against the ground, and kills his entire crew, Vukmir's dying words were that the man's actions were truly worthy of film.

Words cannot describe how despicable this man (well character really) was. It's retch inducing to think that such monsters exist.

42Kai San from Ebola Syndrome
43Alex De Large from A Clockwork Orange

It's hard to believe this kid's still in high school and he's doing all of these horrible things. The only reason he does them is because he simply loves it. He's not in it for the money or anything but just enjoys beating, raping, and murdering people for fun. He's like a savage beast that can never be stopped but is intelligent and well spoken. He believes that life is about choice and not will and the choice he chooses is to be evil because he can do what ever he wants whenever he want.

It's scary that a teenager can break into your house and not just harass you, but even kill you (remember that one scene where Alex kills The Cat Lady by shoving a giant fake penis down her throat? ). in fact, seeing a kid this young doing so many horrible things is pretty disturbing.

He got an orgasm from picturing people getting murdered, and he only read the bible so he could picture himself torturing Jesus.

In the book, he was originally called Alexander The Large.

46Frieza in Dragon Ball / Z / GT

Frieza is the most ruthless, cunning, vile, wicked, corrupt, and evil villain in the history of all anime and animation in general. He is tender yet suspenseful; he is effeminate yet deadly... He deceives through a comical mannerism and a sarcastic wit; yet is extremely dangerous and bloodthirsty. He has the most cruel and barbaric henchmen, Zarbon (who is mysterious and deadly; handsome and hides a ruthless beast within) and Dodoria (brutal and savage against those who are weaker). Frieza has the most vicious persona as well... He concocts and evil plan to destroy all his enemies at once and on the advice of his henchman, Zarbon, he eliminates the entire Saiyan race, committing genocide and executing anyone who would pose a threat against his barbaric rule. He is responsible for taking over hundreds of planets and has hundreds of years of cruel inter-planetary dominance, casting a shadow over the Northern Quadrant of the universe for the longest amount of time. Frieza has enslaved ...more

I can only expect him to be #55 because not many people watch dragonball Z but if they did there is no reason this man shouldn't be top 3 if not first

47The Psychopath in The Hitcher

Rutger Hauer does a great job of portrtaying the "psychopath who wouldn't go away"

John Ryder in the original 'The Hitcher' is the embodyment of evil who not only wishes to kill almost everyone that crosses his path, but also wants to pass on his evil spirit to a young innocent soul. Never have I seen a character where the hatred towards humans as a whole is so strong that he not only wants to detroy the human spirit at it's core, but also carries a deep hatred towards himself.

48Max Cady in Cape Fear

as played by Robert DeNiro...a superb acting job, complete with the using mascara to darken his hair when he is trying to disguise himself in the gas station bathroom...

Played by DeNiro for sure! I watched this while home alone and had a link in my neck for a week. The ultimate freaky creep. Remember when he started talking to the daughter?

49The Kidnapper/killer in Wolf Creek

Mick Taylor rocks and so does Wolf Creek. Greg McLean needs to make more movies because 3 fantastic movies equals a career, a promising career and also he's really hot. Go McLean, you rock and Mick Taylor is undeniably super chilling and his dark humor moments don't stop him from being evil and one of the best horror villains of all time. Wolf Creek is scary and amazing.

The most brutally savage killer ever. Why isn't he at the top and why is he down at 15 c'm of it mate (I'm a Brit not an Aussie) plus judging by some of the corpses down by the mine where he lives he ate most of them.

wow, not sure who the actor is, but he played the part so well - the bad guy in the movie is loosely based on a real person, Ivan Milat, Australia's Backpack Killer...

50Dolores Umbridge in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Her appearance may be deceptive with her pink fluff, girly voice and her love of cats. It is important not to be deluded by such characteristics. She is abundantly evil.

So, HL's Joker to me is actually the best villain of all time in my eyes. But I'm voting Dolores because she's probably my most HATED villain. I can't stand her. What is it exactly? Maybe it's the fact that she's in a position of power and is just in love with it. Stubborn. Intolerant. She is definitely incredibly evil, but in a weirdly subtle way.

Most evil character EVER! More terrifying because I think we all know someone in real life who is just like her!

Dolores. Oh dolores. Umbridge is a sadistic torturer, sorry, devil sent in by the ministry who forces students to write and cut into their own hand. Insane

51Loki from The Avengers

He has the power of triple awesomeness that would defeat all the avengers' awesomeness in like two seconds or maybe one? Anyways I don't know why he isn't on the first page. And another point Tom Hiddleston plays him. That should definitely count for something right?

I can't believe no one put loki on the list! What's wrong with you people?! He's the most powerful villain, I think. And so cruel! I love it!

55Captain Barbossa from Pirates of the Caribbean

No pirate better, he should be in the top tens..

56Ghostface in Scream
57Captain Vidal from The Pan's Labyrinth

Without a doubt the most soulless, evil, contemptible movie character of all time. I'm disappointed that The Joker is number 1 here. He might be the most entertaining and memorable movie villain, but he's certainly not the most evil. Not even close. Captain Vidal takes the cake, followed by Anton Chigurh (No Country for Old Men) and Amon Goeth (Schindler's List).

Captain Vidal is not only evil he is easily one of the most sadistic men seen on screen. He brutally murders countless people without even flinching.

58Lizard in The Hills Have Eyes

Fabulous? Yeah right, he's down right ugly, but he's a tough dude. Plus, he enjoys drinking that milk off of a woman's breast.

All those mutants were downright disgusting, come to think of it...except for Ruby...

59Megatron from Transformers

This is self-explanatory. Greatest of all

60The Grinch

In the version with Jim Carrey, the Mayor is the one who caused the Grinch to hate Christmas because he bullied him as a child, so the Mayor is an even bigger villain than the Grinch. Shame on you, Mayor May Who!

In the end he's not even evil, this one is pointless.
