The 5 Biggest Hollywood Villains

Hollywood has brought us some gruesomely evil villains throughout time. Everyone has their favorite for different reasons, but some are well known by everyone.

Norman Bates (Psycho)

Norman Bates
Norman Bates was a totally psychotic creeper. Tony Perkins portrayal of Momma's boy in "Psycho" was enough to make anyone think twice before staying at a little Mom and Pop hotel in the middle of nowhere. Of course it also had many people thinking twice before going into the shower. Just the thought of him keeping his dead Mother sitting in his house was enough to make your skin crawl.

Annie Wilkes (Misery)

Annie Wilkes
Annie Wilkes was absolutely bonkers. Kathy Bates excellent performance of her in "Misery" brought your fears of being kidnapped to a whole new level. She was "oogy" to the max. She made the number one fan mean something entirely different and turned your average stalker into a heartless control freak. When she finds out Paul has left his room and snooped around, she goes completely off her rocker and makes you wish he could just GET OUT.

Max Cady (Cape Fear)

Max Cady
Robert DeNiro was super creepy in "Cape Fear". As Max Cady, DeNiro plays an ex-con who is bent on getting revenge on the public defender who originally had him put away. He not only stalks the public defender, but his whole family. When he starts to befriend the teenage daughter, he crosses the line. He is just downright slimy and has no morals whatsoever. He intends on making his life a total hell, as he made Cady's in the past. You will wish for his demise throughout the movie.

Michael Myers (Halloween Series)

Michael Myers
Michael Myers known for the "Halloween" movies, is extremely popular. The music score from the movie alone is enough to make the hair on your neck stand on end. But to see that pale face staring you down is definitely scary. From the slow ominous walk he uses when after his victims, to the slightly sadistic tip of the head when staring them down, he is definitely someone you don't want to meet in a dark alley. After killing his older sister when he was six, Michael just got worse. He is the ultimate Boogeyman, and scares you again and again by never being able to be killed. When you have reached the edge of your seat and decide it is okay to relax and sit back, he will only pop up and scare you all over again. Remember - you can't kill the boogeyman.

Lord Voldemort (Harry Potter)

Lord Voldemort
The most recent villain to take over Hollywood is Lord Voldemort from the "Harry Potter" series of films. Having been the one who tried to kill Harry as a baby, resulting of course in the famous scar, Voldemort (or he who must not be named for the timid), continues to try and finish the job he started many years ago. Like the boogeyman, he also cannot seem to be killed. He is determined to end the life of "The Boy Who Lived" and find peace forever. Ralph Fiennes brought Voldemort to "death" most excellently.
