We took 64 of the meanest and nastiest movie villains ever created and brought them together for a no holds-barred tournament, to find out who is the evilest villain of all times. For rules and details about the selection process click here.
Darth Vader and Michael Myers took surprising falls in the east regions second round series and Damien and Gordon Gekko are just getting warmed up. Who will move closer to hell in this region? Let’s get it on!
(4) Leatherface – Texas Chainsaw Massacre
(12) Cruella DeVil – 101 Dalmatians
Battle: Cruella had a good run but let’s face it, she’d never be a real threat to you or anyone you know. You could run into her on the street and what’s she’s gonna do, take your dog? If she really wanted to hurt somebody she’d have killed those dalmatian lovers and stole their dogs. If you even try to drive down Leatherface’s street he’s going to kill you.
(1) Joker – The Dark Knight
(8) Simon Pheonix – Demolition Man
Battle: The Joker and Simon Phoenix were after the same thing: chaos. Joker killed city officials, turned a hero DA is a psychopath and tried to blow up two (literal) boat loads of people. Simon Pheonix…killed city officials. So while I totally Wesley Snipes would beat Heath Ledger’s ass any day of the week, his resume comes up a little short.
(3) Catherine Tramell – Basic Instinct
(11) Clarence Boddicker – Robocop
Battle: Clarence Boddicker was really just out for a good time. Should a cop get in his way — or anyone for that matter — he took pleasure in blowing them away. Still, his objective was to party. Catherine Tramell seemed to go out looking for trouble. She wanted to twist people to her will and then kill them. That’s some evil sh–.
Winner: Catherine Tramell
(2) Jason Voorhees – Friday the 13th
(7) Alonzo – Training Day
Battle: Alonzo was chasing power and respect which most would say is the root of all evil, but in a way he was just trying to restore order. His order, but still order. Jason Voorhees was a scared little boy looking for his mommy, but he was demented enough to believe that anyone who entered his camp was his enemy and deserved to die. Jason had more demons.
Winner: Jason Voorhees
(4) Chucky – Child’s Play
(12) Peyton Flanders – The Hand that Rocked the Craddle
Battle: It’s the baby doll vs. the babysitter. I think it’s safe to say that Peyton isn’t going to be rocking Chucky’s cradle anytime soon. Yea she killed one guy and tried to take over a family, but let’s pretend she succeeded. She’d have done anything to protect her family, but she wouldn’t go out of her way to hurt people. If Chucky possessed a new body, his evil would know no bounds.
(3) Norman Bates – Psycho
(11) Max Cady – Cape Fear
Battle: Here’s the deal with Norman Bates: he (and his mother) just wanted to be left alone. They could have stayed in that crappy motel for years and not interact with anyone. Evil contained. Max Cady had an itch he just had to scratch. An itch for rape, if not murder to. He’d never just sit alone and let it fester.
Winner: Max Cady
(1) Freddy Kruger – A Nightmare of Elm Street
(8) T-1000 – Terminator 2: Judgment Day
Battle: Just stop for a minute and imagine this battle for real. Amazing right? Well in terms of evil, the liquid terminators only objective was to assassinate (I think he is important enough to warrant the term) John Connor. He didn’t really kill anyone he didn’t have to. He wasn’t just poking bystanders in the eye with his liquid daggers. Freddy would’ve.
Winner: Freddy Kruger
(7) General Thade – Planet of the Apes
(15) Maleficent – Sleeping Beauty
Battle: Hmm…General Thade kept slaves. Maleficent never had any slaves. Maleficent tried to kill a baby and then eat the prince that came to save the grown up baby. General Thade would certainly kill a human baby and anyone who tried to stop him. Isn’t it ironic that Maleficent’s “Cinderella” story dies here.
Winner: General Thade
