    lol, kidding.

    I'm sure I'll think of something better, but these come to mind.

    Anton Chigurh from "No Country for Old Men", Frank Booth from "Blue Velvet", the Gemini Killer from "Exorcist 3" and while his inclusion might be a bit generous, Killmonger from "Black Panther" was really good too. The best villains to me are the ones that make you uncomfortable or nervous whenever they're on the screen. That scene with Chigurh and the gas station attendant or the segment where the protagonist takes a ride with Frank Booth were terrifying.

    Annie Wilkes, John Doe, Cujo, Nosferatu, John Ryder, Norman Bates and Mark Lewis. Probably has to do with my age when I watched the film as I was pretty young. Must've seen all these films before I turned 12 years old. Was a bit of a pussy back then as well.

    So these, and probably a few more, are the ones that's stuck with me over the years. Nosferatu, John Ryder, Norman Bates and Mark Lewis still makes me a tad uncomfortable when I watch the films. The characters as well as the performances are just too fucking good.

    The real best villain is the original Mechagodzilla. How many children had nightmares at the sight of him tearing Anguirus's jaws apart? Total dick move, yo.

    The T-1000 comes to mind.

    If you take collective ( :maybe ) villains, also the Borg [Next Generation deoictionst only].

    Both are things you can mostly only run from because they're totally unstoppable.

    Hannibal. Calm, smart and calculating, was extremely dangerous and him being played by Anthony Hopkins only made it better.

    Xenomorphs might be more intimidating physically, but The Thing will always be the most frightening villain to me.

    Thanos will undoubtedly be remembered as one of cinema’s most threatening villains.

    His unstoppable walk when he arrived on Earth was amazing.

    Maybe its recency bias but, Thanos.

    Most writers either humanize the villain so much that he ends up a giant pussy or they make them so menacing that he becomes one note, Thanos has the qulities of both but non of the draw backs. I went into the theater expecting Avengers to die and told myself I was ok with letting them go but, the moment Thanos started beating down Stark I felt despair.

    "reverent" Harry Powell from the classic " The night of the hunter " (1955).

    Truly worthy of being mentioned on the top movie greatest villains list.
    He is a serial killer masquerading as a preacher, who charms everybody around him into a cult like love, while hiding his inner madness.
    His depiction of hunting two little kids, while being all happy and go lucky is pretty chilling.

    To quote Roger Ebert:"Nobody who has seen "The Night of the Hunter” has forgotten it, or Mitchum's voice coiling down those basement stairs: "Chillll . . . dren?” "

    It's even the origin of the HATE/LOVE spelling on the knuckles that countless films reference.
    I fully recommend the movie. It has surprisingly aged well considering its age.
