    No Peeping Tom??? That gave me nightmares for weeks. And he was so evil that he ruined Michael Powell's career.

    Surprised not to see Ryunosuke from "The Sword of Doom" on the list.

    Not to sound like a typical 13 year old Horror fanatic, but Silence of the Lambs anyone?

      Buffalo Bill was one of the most 1-dimenional villions i've ever seen. Hannibal Lecter is a different story...

    Strange that Ryunosuke Tsukue isn't here. I'd put him before Kaede.

    No Sebastian Hawks from Naked? Clarence Broddicker from Robocop? Idi Amin? Dr Mabuse? The serial killer from Vengeance Is Mine?

    I dunno guys, the poor blob was just a vegetative organism looking for food, and Yone from KURONEKO seemed like a hauntological pacifist getting pragmatic in a pre-emptive policy Man's Man's Man's World (she didn't write the rules!)....so can we make room for HUNSECKER HUNSECKER HUNSECKER? J.J. Hunsecker seems like a timely slimeball (contemporary to both his time and ours) if ever ya'll immortalized one...

      I agree, J.J. Hunsucker should have been mentioned

    Dr. Soberin (Albert Dekker) from Kiss Me Deadly should definitely be on this list.

    Oh My God!!!!!!!! Harry Lime in The Third Man. One of the top 3 top villains in cinema history along with Hannibal Lecter and the HAL 9000 in 2001.

      I second that. That googly eyed president in Salo is quite possibly up there with the joker in terms of villainy. Manga!!!

    Harry Lime in The Third Man gets my vote. A suave sociopath.

    I vote for Ireland as the villian in Hunger. Or maybe it's stubborness, either way, whatever is fucking with those guys is a great/terrible villian. Also Island of Lost Souls has a great villian.

    Paul Mireau is lucky he wasn't involved in the Vietnam War; his cold-hearted ass would have been fragged but good.
