    I'm watching The Patriot for the fourth time (not in a row...:p ) right now, and it got me about a question I have asked my friends: who is the most evil movie villain? My vote would have to go to to Col. William Tavington.

    Keep in mind it's the most evil, not most popular or poignant. Also, it can't be an actual historical character portrayed in a movie (i.e. Hitler), though it can be based on a historical character.

    And let's not forget the evilest of them all... Dr. Evil.

    Have to say (other than what's been mentioned):

    Saruman in LOTR (I know Sauron would be more evil technically, but he never really gets to flesh it out).

    Agent Smith in the Matrix series.

    What about John Doe - Kevin Spacey's character is Se7en?

    Iago is just a timelessly evil character and certainly one of the best villians of all time.

    A lot of sith lords comes to mind with this question. Especially in the KOTOR timeline. But I will have to go with the emperor since they haven't made any movies of the other times of the Star Wars timeline


    Also Woo-Jin in Old Boy is an awesome villain, along with some of the villains in Takashi Miike's movies

    John Lithgow's character in "Cliffhanger"
    John Jarratt's character in "Wolf Creek" - I still can't take it seriously because he was on "Better Homes and Gardens" for so long, every time he appears I think he's going to go "show us how to build a nice coffee table" or something.

    Hannibal Lector didn't really scare me (he had a benevolence), but ... Buffalo Bill ... he was damn creepy and scary, especially if you read the book ...

    I'm gonna throw a really odd one out there.

    the Velociraptors in Jurassic Park. Even with the craziest humans, you can reason with most, or vibe them, or at the very least attempt to understand them. (Tavington in the Patriot just wanted some real estate ... ). Whereas with an animal or beast ... no such luck, especially a prehistoric one.

    Thats my reasoning.

    Also in consideration. Elderly People Behind the Wheel. ok I just saw that South Park and I laughed really hard again but at the same time, I get scared when I'm going home and one of them gets in my way and her forehead is an inch from the steering wheel and I can't believe she can see much of the road.

    Simon Legree, the guy in Uncle Tom's Cabin that tied the chick to the railroad tracks. Can't beat the original.

    You nerd! :p

    P.S. Where's KOTOR III at, damnit! :D

    That was going to be my suggestion as well. His laugh was so creepy! I'm the same with the Better Homes and Gardens thing as well, it just seems wrong that he was married to a Playschool presenter.

    Hands down Nina from 24.

    I know it's a 24 show but still. I have never seen anyone so evil in my whole life. I can't even imagine anyone more evil than her.

    How about Cornwall from King Lear? He's far worse IMO, especially given that his evilness stems mainly from the fact that while his wife spends the whole play appropriating his sense of manhood, he spends it being a sadistic arse because he has no clue how to get his sense of dong back.

    Hannibal Lector is a good choice too - he's the first villian I can remember that was truly a "smart" bad guy; the epitomy of evil genius if you will.

    I'll also cast an honorable mention for Khan from Star Trek.

    Hush and Red Hood are pretty badass too

    But for batman world I have to go with Black Mask. He is so freaking badass in the war games saga and red hood saga.


    "Ah sir we have a problem with Mr Freeze again." - Pawn
    "What is it now" - Black Mask
    "Well, he killed another lab tech." - Pawn
    "Spunky, I like that, get him another tech." - Black Mask


    mmmm so much goodness, it would be so badass if he was in the batman begins sequel.
