I don't know if any of you guys are like me, but I have always loved movie bad guys. Heros are ok, but by and large I have always identified with the not so nice guy, the villain. Now don't get me wrong, Im not "evil" or I have always been more intrigued by the darker charcters in cinema, the ones that you aren't really supposed to root for, but ya do anyways. This thread is a tribute to the villain in American (or foreign) cinema. What charcter is the meanest, most maniacal mofo on the block? Who had the best lines, the best story, inspired the most fear or was the most formidable? Or what actor out there filled the role of villain best? Could be horror, could be political thriller, could be sci-fi, you decide. So many great ones to choose from. So who is YOUR ALL- TIME favorite BADASS & why?

There are so many great ones that come to mind, but alas, you must start with the king and set the precedent. Here is mine - you all know him, you all love him - the hardest working man in the Empire - Lord Vader

Mines has gotta be the Cannibal King of Cool :

Hannibal Lecter.

"On a similar note I must confess to you, I'm giving very serious thought... to eating your wife". - Hannibal (2001)

He's the Man!

Lana Turner as M'Lady DeWinter in the Three Musketeers. The scene where she is looking out the window as lightning flashes is chilling. At that moment she is evil personified.

I like Freddy Krueger (Nightmare On Elm Street), Michael Myers (Halloween), and Jason Vorhees (Friday the 13th).

I also like the Joker from the first Batman movie.

I also thought of The Joker, but decided to go with Hannibal.
The Joker's great!

Norman Bates from the movie Psycho.

Played by Anthony Perkins in the original and Vince Vauhn in the remake.

The one and only Frank Booth (Blue Velvet)

A truly terrifying man, and realistic enough to keep that fear in you for a while after the film has finished.

For "Jokey" Bad Guys....The Joker, of course.

Steve Buscemi as Garland 'The Marietta Mangler' Greene in Con Air.
He truely is a great actor, and his part was played very sick like.

He is #3 on my list.

As the saying goes: There can be only one!

Luckily it is nothing to do with the poo film you might now be thinking of, but the ultimate bad guy is none other than... (Drum role)
    Jô Odagiri as Bijomaru Mogami.

Oh yes!

Love him and despair!

Come on, Vaders cool, Hannibals okay, but MAGNETO!

He kicks so much ass I needed a little sit down after watching the movie.

I wish I could control metal, then I would flip out and start trashing stuff.

Chucky the serial killer doll from the Child's Play movies. One of the best just because.......well because it a SERIAL KILLER DOLL! lol

The Leprachaun from the Leprachaun movies.


The T-1000 from Terminator 2: Judgment Day. One of the best bad guy 'cause he was liquid metal and shooting him had no affect at all on him, the hole would just dissapear.
He was just about invincable.......almost.

Mountain man and Toothless man

Played by Bill McKinney and Herbert Coward

From the 1972 hit, Deliverance

Toothless Man: [grinning] He's got a real pretty mouth on him, don't he?
Mountain Man: Ain't that the truth.

Toothless Man: [grinning] He's got a real pretty mouth on him, don't he?

LMAO!! Yes indeed these two may be the scariest of the whole group. Freddy Krueger may have done a lot of nasty things in his day, but Im pretty sure even he can't touch that one. I don't know who were scarier, the two rapists or the twin inbred hillbillies on the porch pickin the banjo. I never could look at Ned Beatty the same after that
