no Ming the Merciless yet?

On a more serious note, I'd go for Darth Vader, iconic, robotic, evil (sort of) and forever scarred in my memory.

The baddie that scared me the most when I was young was the Child Catcher from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.....    eek

On that note a rather Evil TOTPD.... Mwahahahaha.

That would be the case for me if he didn't let Luke go off without him.  He just ended up being a sort of hero.

Now let's see, I'm a Bond fan and I satirize it with my SpyOrama, what should I choose.  I know Goldfinger, "No, Mr. Bond I expect to die."

Also, I like Hannibal, Agent Smith, Denzel Washington's character from "Training Day".  Scarface, The Terminator, Darth Vader, Freddy Kruger and many more.

The main character in 'A Clockwork Orange' scared the hell out of me, he seemed so cool and charismatic, yet vindictive and pshycotic at the same time...with a whole lot of individuality lobbed in there too, legend, but scary!!

Alex DeLarge.  And he ain't the villain.  I think the best movie villain actor ever is Wang Lung-Wei, from the old Shaw Bros. kung fu movies.  But the best villain might be Harry Lime in the Third Man.

How could you say the first movie was a fake?  Sure the special effects are sort of cheesy, but it is still way better than T3 and much more cult like than T2.  Terminator 1 is my of all the Terminator films, because it still holds up today.

I didn't say I didn't like it. I just thought it was fake (cheesy, same thing). For example when he takes off his face you can tell it is fake. No way would I disagree with you that it is a great movie. If it wasn't I wouldn't have bought it on Dvd.

I would say one of the coolest was Darth Maul, I know he got toasted but any body who can take on two jedi and toast one while he is at it is way cool in my book. The way he died was STUPID,he should have fragged Obi-wan, that was just the "good guys must win" theme tacked on :P I mean that guy just OOZED malice, admit it! He wanted the Jedi DEAD and he wanted to do it all himself so he could look them in their beady little eyes after he gutted them. Such a beautiful mind...

The guy from The Professional was pretty good as 'pill-popping evil' and the guy from fifth element is right up there among my favorites. Such a deft wit...

Dr. Evil qualifies for funniest evil to me but hey he hasn't offed Austin Powers yet so he can NEVER be the King.

Going to sneak an anime one in here too...  smile Hellmaster Phibrizzo from The Slayers: Next. That SOB was so evil I wanted to off him personally, I don't get that worked up very often.

Okay, I was misinformed, thanks for clearing that up.  I know that scene in cheesy, but it still looks more real than other 80's special effects films.

i voted Dath Vader....the classic villian.

Some villians u may not have thought about.(some may have been mentioned before)

- main character from 'Clockwork Orange'
- The villian in the John Woos 'The Killer'
- Agent Smith 'the matrix'
- Ed Harris in 'Enemy at the Gates'
- The Joker' Batman'
- Stephen Dorf 'Blade'
- John Travolta 'Broken Arrow'
- Dorthy the Dinosaur (perhaps the evilist of them all)

But seriuosly John Travolta in Broken Arrow and Stephen Dorf in Blade are big contenders

I agree with Stephen Dorf, what was his characters name though?  I loved the way Blade killed him with the syringes of syrum which made him blow up, sick.  Kind of reminded me of that girl from Willy Wonker and the Chocolate Factory who had the bubble gum which made her go all big and round. Then the UmpahLumahs roled her away, classic!  Did any one else think Willy Wonker himself had an evil quality, with is top hat (im talking about his portrayal in the film here)

Deacon Frost.
But nah, he's a light weight. (And whatever John Travolta's villian is called, loses points because of the amount of times he shows up in other movies).
Now, The Joker, he was pretty damn cool. And Vader was damn badass, as well. And Ian Mckellans Magneto was also awesome (I haven't the comics.) That grenade trick was class.   big grin
But, no love for Ernst Stavros Blofeld? He created a whole villian sterotype! Who do you think Dr. Evil is based on! Cat stroking wierdo...

Nosferatu is very old school. It's the first Dracula movie ever made (though it wasn't 'officially' a Dracula movie... the film was nearly destroyed as part of the lawsuit against it...). He's the funny bald guy with big fingers.
Are you talking about the film "Shadow of the Vampire," Nerdlingus?

Nosfetatu was released in 1925, so it is incredibly 'old skool'. I think it's very atmoshperic, there are no words to ruin the movie, it's all looks....

Agreed, it is a silent film, and it can scare the pants off you... The actor who played that lead role did a stupendous job. Take Uncle Fester from the Addams family, make him an anorexic, and add twelve gallons of pure evil and a pound of insanity....
