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.
Joker is by far the most insane villain I've ever seen or heard of. Sorry to all the other guys on this list, but joker has you beat on the insanity scale by a lot. To those who created the Joker, you guys DEFINITELY hit your target right on the head.
Watch his torture screen where he butchers a fake batman on live television

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.
I'll be his therapist.

5 Cannibalistic Mountain Men - Wrong Turn Series
6 Buffalo Bill - Silence of the Lambs
7 John Doe - Se7en
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.
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').
8 Jigsaw Killer - Saw

Kefka Palazzo is a character in the Final Fantasy series of video games. Originally designed by Yoshitaka Amano, he appears in the 6th installment of the series - Final Fantasy VI.
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.
11 Jack Torrance - The Shining
John Daniel Edward "Jack" Torrance is the main antagonist of Stephen King's horror novel The Shining.
I remember being freaked out when he poked his head through the door and said "Here's Johnny".

15 Peter Foley - Copycat
16 Norman Bates - Psycho

18 Freddy Krueger - A Nightmare on Elm Street Series
Fred "Freddy" Krueger is the main antagonist of the A Nightmare on Elm Street film series. He first appeared in Wes Craven's A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984).
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
19 Mr. Teatime - The Hogfather
20 Tyler Durden - Fight Club
Tyler Durden is a character from the movie Fight Club. He doesn't actually exist as he is The Narrator's split personality.

21 Flowey - Undertale
Flowey is a flower in the RPG Undertale. He is the first character you meet, and also your best friend.
22 Professor Moriarty - Sherlock Holmes
Moriarty is an extremely intelligent and insane villain. He doesn't just pick out a random person to ruin, he chooses a person with the same intellect to challenge him. In my opinion, I don't think his ranking right now as #23 is right. I think he deserves to be in the top 10, 20 at least. The games he plays to "advertise" his "business" in public during the Reichenbach fall trial shows the risk he is willing to take, even though to him they may just be another game he knows he'll win.
23 Vaas Montenegro - Far Cry 3
Vaas Montenegro is the secondary antagonist of Far Cry 3, appearing as the main antagonist for the first half of its storyline.
24 The Master - Doctor Who
