I'm watching The Patriot for the fourth time (not in a row... ) 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.
