Cinema is full of baddies, but these antagonists are in a league of their own. For this list, we’re looking at the evilest, most twisted villains to ever darken the silver screen – from psychopathic killers like Simon Phoenix in “Demolition Man” (1993), to murderous marauders like Wez in “Mad Max 2” (1981), and criminal masterminds like the Joker in “Batman” (1989). Who do YOU think is the most over-the-top evil movie villains? Let us know in the comments!

  1. Seriously? No Captain Rhodes from Day of the Dead? Not even as an honorable mention? The dude tells the zombies to “Choke on it” as they’re eating his guts in the movie’s climax. This list is sooooorely missing that guy. Way more over the top than Benedict from Last Action Hero and the villain from Bloodsport IMO.
