The Worst & Most Evil Movie Villains of All Time

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Kyung-chul from I Saw the Devil
42 Jafar from Aladdin
43 Darth Maul from Star Wars Darth Maul from Star Wars Darth Maul is a fictional character in the science fiction franchise Star Wars. Trained as Darth Sidious's first apprentice, he serves as a Sith Lord and a master of wielding a double-bladed lightsaber. Darth Maul first appeared in Star Wars Episode 1 The Phantom Menace, and has also appeared in The more.
44 Commodus in Gladiator

One of the most evil, conniving, treacherous and downright creepy characters to ever hit the screen...

Brilliant acting in that movie

45 Alex 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.

Alexander DeLarge truly is one of the worst people on the earth.

51 The 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.

52 Dolores 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!

She is Trump's mother.

53 Max Cady in Cape Fear Max 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?

54 The 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...

55 Dr. Evil in the Austin Powers movies Dr. Evil in the Austin Powers movies Dr. Evil is a fictional character, played by Mike Myers in the Austin Powers film series. He is the antagonist of the movies, and Austin Powers' nemesis. V 1 Comment

58 Col. Hans Landa from Inglourious Basterds
59 Ghostface in Scream
60 Captain 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.
