Hello, Clarice...

Next up would be the Joker.  FROM BATMAN THE ANIMATED SERIES!  Mark Hammil pwned that character.  Keyser Zose is a must mention.  Roberto.  I want to see "Things to do in Denver when you're dead"  I hear there's a good maniac or two in there.  The killer in the X-files episode "Clyve Bruckman's Final Repose" was wonderfully creepy, as was Brad Dourif in the episode "Beyond the Sea."  Hell, you could have a whole thread dedicated to just X-files psychos.

Finally I have to mention, the most wonderful psycho ever to be animated.  IMO, she makes the Joker look like a disgruntled Woody Allen.

NOVA!

Good choice.

I must also add Tyler Durden...from the BOOK Fight Club.

Samara from "The Ring"  Oh. My. God. Creepy!

Indeed it is -- I just bought the Se7en DVD set myself.

However, even John Doe can't hold a candle to good ole Norman Bates. It's a shame Anthony Perkins couldn't get another decent role after this; he was just so good as a creepy, insane guy...

Had to go with Bob for obvious reasons, although Jack is great too.  Great book and movie (The Shining).

No love for the Joker? I mean, unlike the rest of those homicidal maniacs, its almost impossible to kill the Joker. Plus, he has the cool paint job and suit and Harly Quinn and he's always foiling Batman and....whatever.

Roberto's my favourite homicidal maniac, but Sideshow Bob comes in a close second.

I'm going to go with the Joker, he is by far the most entertaining (Save Bob, but he never really KILLED anyone, which is a couple of points taken off right there...), and one of the creepiest of those that I have seen (although John Doe from se7en was quite unnerving, if I remember correctly).

Ted Bundy, the movie of the same name has some really surreal and disturbing scenes, not nice at all.
Or Sam Neills character from event horizon - cant remember his name now though.

"You don't need eyes to see where we're going."
That movie was a little too cliched for me, though. I'll have to go with the guy from Se7en. I also liked the sniper from Phone Booth.

If we were talking about the Joker from the comic books, I'd agree with you.  The TV and movie versions don't quite measure up though.

Norman Bates. He is the father (so to speak) of all homicidial maniacs.
No one yet has matched his sheer threatening insanity.

Dr. Lector.  But only in Silence.  Well, maybe also Brian Cox's version in Manhunter.

(Dis?)Honourable mention goes to the Scorpio Killer from Dirty Harry.  "Sing or I'm gonna kill all your mothers!!!"

What about in the 1989 Batman movie. I thought he was pretty good there.

*Joker Stabs a mob boss in the throat with a pen and kills him*

Joker: I guess the pen really is mightier than the sword!

*Insane laughter*


*Edit* Honorable mention goes to Willard, but technically it was the rats who killed his boss and not him.

Yeah, stabbing a mob boss in the throat is cute and all; but the movie Joker never beat Jason Todd to death with a lead pipe while forcing the kid's mother to watch.  The movie Joker never shot and crippled Barbara Gordon, stripped her naked, and took pictures to show to her father.

Sorry, but the comic book Joker makes Jack Nicholson look like Cesar Romero.

The character was named Patrick Bateman (he was played by Christian Bale, the next Batman).  And I HATED the book (liked the movie, though).  It's the only thing I've ever felt dirty about reading.  Literally, I'm sitting there, 100 pages away from the end, thinking "I feel just wrong about reading this, but I need to finish, or i'll just come back in 5 years and start it all over again."

Yeah Patrick Bateman was cool, he dropped a chainsaw on someone from high up a stairway, you gotta admire his love of the hobby and skill with the tools.  big grin

Waiter: Would you like to hear today's specials?
Bateman: Not if you want to keep your spleen.

Boingo: What?! The book was soo much better.  Not Bret Easton Ellis's best (that would be Less Than Zero or Rules or Attraction).  But, the film seemed to miss the entire point of the novel.

The Joker. Espeicalially in the classic "Teh Dark Knight Returns". He's completely phycotic kil hundreds of people and when Batman catches up with him. He snaps his own neck to encrimintae Batman. Good stuff.
