Top 10 Most Evil Serial Killers

These are the 10 worst serial killers in history (in my opinion). Though many obviously won't agree with me, so add anyone who you think is missing.

The Top Ten

1 Elizabeth Bathory Elizabeth Bathory Countess Elizabeth Báthory de Ecsed was a serial killer from the Báthory family of nobility in the Kingdom of Hungary.

She probably has the highest body count in serial killer history! At least 650 girls died in her hand before she was finally caught.

Cool enough to have a song written about her and a band choose to name them selves after her, you need to be evil for that. - Lucretia

Oh really I thought I would see Amelia Dyer.

That woman is a Satanist - ParkerFang

2 Albert Fish Albert Fish Hamilton Howard "Albert" Fish was an American serial killer. He was also known as the Gray Man, the Werewolf of Wysteria, the Brooklyn Vampire, the Moon Maniac, and The Boogey Man.

He send a messed up letter about killing a girl to her family. Read it on wikipedia... Man I felt sick

He was a cannibal, child molester, and a torturer man some cannibal corpse songs remind me of him

He ate children for God's sake! It doesn't get anymore evil than that!

He seemed to enjoy his evil more than the others, especially with the sick letter he sent to Grace Budd's family.

3 Luis Garavito Luis Garavito

This homosexual, pedophile and sadistic serial killer killed at least 138 known young boys which leads to a possible count of 400 murders.

There's nothing wrong with being gay, so don't use that as a way to bash him. Still pedophile and sadist are bad, - Lucretia

His victims were poor, peasant, or street children between the ages of 8 and 16. He approached them and offered them gifts or small amounts of money. After gaining their trust, he took the children for a walk and when they got tired, he would molest and rape them, cut their throats, and usually dismembered their bodies. - XtremeNerdz12

4 Gilles de Rais Gilles de Rais Gilles de Montmorency-Laval, Baron de Rais, was a knight and lord from Brittany, Anjou and Poitou, a leader in the French army, and a companion-in-arms of Joan of Arc.

He was notorious for killing children... and being summoned as a Caster-class Servant in the Fourth Holy Grail War in Fate/Zero. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

He's definitely worser than Elizabeth in terms of "Evil" - Metalmaniakkk

5 H.H. Holmes H.H. Holmes

H.H. holmes was a twisted mastermind and the only one who was so twisted he build an entire building devoted to making his killings easier... Because he had the ability to plan somthing so complex and carry out his plan with such precision. I think he holds the number title for most evil... He wasnt sick mentally he infact was very brilliant... Extremly evil... But brilliant..

23 Henri Landru

Henri Landru is not as bad as the others on this list, but I am going to vote for him anyway because is is the most underrated. He married 11 women in his life time and he killed, disemboweled, and burned. He was a real life Bluebeard

24 Richard Ramirez Richard Ramirez Ricardo Leyva Muñoz Ramírez, known as Richard Ramirez, was an American serial killer, rapist, and burglar.

26 Adolf Hitler Adolf Hitler Adolf Hitler was a German politician who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945, and Führer of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. As dictator of Nazi Germany, he initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September 1939 and was a central figure of more.

He was not a serial killer. He was a dictator who ordered thousands to millions of deaths.

I would not cal this dude a serial killer because he never shot a person or anything but this dude is still evil and sick don't get me wrong. This basterd ordered his men to wind jews up in death camps. He tried to invade Russia. But all his men froze to death. Than the russians struck back once trying to go into Germany but once they did they saw the jews. The russians did not know that the nazis were rounding up jews in deathcamps.

Shouldn't be on here. He was a dictator which is far different from a serial killer. - Aragorn98

What he was not a serial killer. think before you vote.
