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.
The truck that is Gordon Gekko just keeps steam rolling the competition. His latest victim is none other than the legendary, liver-eating Hannibal. Which juggernaut is going down on this side of the sweet 16? Well…
(1) Freddy Krueger – A Nightmare on Elm Street
(4) Leatherface – Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Battle: If you squinted really hard it’d be easy to confuse Freddy Krueger with the devil, but this competition is about more than looks. Leatherface took people apart just so he could have a face (or a different face). And as far as we know Leatherface was human. But at the end of the day, Leatherface was driven to evil because he was teased as a child. He was an odd child. And there were plenty of signs that he didn’t exactly grasp what he was doing. He was a deranged and disfigured Lennie. Freddy knew exactly what he was doing, before and after death. That takes a bit more evil.
Winner: Freddy Krueger
(2) Jason Voorhees – Friday the 13th
(3) Catherine Tramell – Basic Instinct
Battle: Jason’s weakness is that he only kills people who wonder into Camp Crystal lake. I mean all you have to do to avoid him is pass on the camping trip. His strength however is that he is a mass murderer who slaughters everyone who packs a sleeping bag like a stuffed pig. Catherine Tramell’s weakness is that she is lacking on the mass portion of her murders. I mean she can only kill a few people at a time and even then she has to be very selective. I mean if a guy could keep it in his pants, he’d see right through her and be able to subdue her. She’s not very big. But in the grand scheme of things…how many guys could actual keep it in their pants?
Winner: Catherine Tramell.
(7) General Thade – Planet of the Apes
(11) Max Cady – Cape Fear
Battle: Max Cady is probably the most disgusting rapist in this tournament, but General Thade is probably the most evil dictator in this tournament. However, Max had tunnel vision. He spent all his time trying to set up one man. Trying to break one man. And his resume isn’t all that impressive. If you are going to dedicate yourself to one person, you’d better terrorize the hell out of them. General Thade however, knew how to conquer an entire race of people. He didn’t just slaughter them, he beat them down and made them feel like they were nothing. He made them believe they were nothing and deserved to be swatted down like in significant flies.
Winner: General Thade.
(1) Joker – The Dark Knight
(4) Chucky – Child’s Play
Battle: You know, I would just like to lock these two characters in a room with a radio mic and listen to the conversation they would have. It would have to be satellite radio of course, but it would be the most entertaining radio show ever. But you don’t get points here for talking evil in this competition. Joker saw the big picture and dedicated his life to just f—in’ sh– up. That’s it. No rhyme or reason. He just wanted to f— sh– up and anyone who happened to catch his eye became the victim. Chucky on the other hand spent all his time looking for a body. He wasn’t really killing people just for the joy of killing people. He was killing people get a body. He was laying low most of the time posing as a doll and then coming out at night. He wasn’t trying to terrify people, he went out of his way so they’d never see it coming. Joker wouldn’t do that.
