Top 10 Stephen King Villains


The Top Ten

1 Pennywise the Dancing Clown (It) Pennywise the Dancing Clown (It)

Hilarious and kind of creepy in the 1990 version but absolutely terrifying in the 2017 version. - PeeledBanana

The new movie was amazing! When I saw the trailer I was thinking is gonna be bad,but it was one of the best book adaptation I ever saw! The book was amazing too!

2 Jack Torrance (The Shining) Jack Torrance (The Shining) John Daniel Edward "Jack" Torrance is the main antagonist of Stephen King's horror novel The Shining.

I've heard and read such praise for this film. I keep meaning to watch it to see if it lives up to the hype and my expectations but I've just never got around to it.

Note to self: Watch this film! - Britgirl

Said one of the most famous quotes in movie history! "HERE'S JOHNNY! " - PeeledBanana


Very creepy!

3 Annie Wilkes - Misery Annie Wilkes - Misery

#11? Annie Wilkes is one scary lady. Surely she deserves to be at least #1? - Britgirl

I was incredibly confused when I didn't see Annie on this list. How can you forget her? She's terrifyingly crazy. - Kokopawley

At least the top 5

Scary - PeeledBanana

4 Randall Flagg (The Stand)
5 Crimson King (The Dark Tower)
6 Gage Creed (Pet Sematary)
7 Raggedy Man (Cell)
8 Leatherheads (Under the Dome)
9 Kurt Barlow (Salem's Lot)

The Contenders

11 Blaine the Mono (The Dark Tower III: The Waste Lands)
12 Robert Rusler (Sometimes They Come Back)
13 Leland Gaunt (Needful Things)
14 John Rainbird (Firestarter)
15 Greg Stillson (The Dead Zone)
16 Margaret White (Carrie 1976) Margaret White (Carrie 1976)

Carrie's crazy, religious fanatic mother. Beats her daughter with a bible, and kills her own daughter at the end of the movie and book! Definitely a villain to me!
