It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday. Actually, it’s finally time to crown the top 10 movie villains of all-time. Do note that these characters aren’t solely ranked on how villainous or catastrophic their actions are. This list is all about memorable villainy. Without further ado, here are the top ten movie villains of all-time.
#10 – Scar
“Long live the King. ”
#9 – Freddy Krueger
“One, Two, Freddy’s coming for you.”
#8 – Emperor Palpatine
The mastermind in George Lucas’ films set in a galaxy far, far away.
#7 – Xenomorph
Fantastic creature design.
#6 – Jack Torrance
“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”
#5 – Anton Chigurh
It took me far too long to finally sit down and watch No Country for Old Men, but once I did I was impressed. Chigurh is terrifying.
#4 – Dr. Hannibal Lecter
“I’m having an old friend for dinner.”
#3 – The Joker
“It’s simple. We, uh, kill the Batman.”
#2 – Amon Göth
Amon is portrayed as a monster drunk on power in Schindler’s List. He had to be on this list.
#1 – Darth Vader
Anakin Skywalker – Darth Vader – is the greatest movie villain of all-time. And just in case you weren’t already convinced, 2016’s Rogue One reminded you of how powerful he is.
