10) Hans Landa
Movie: Inglourious Basterds
Actor: Christoph Waltz
A real monster under the personal of a charming and sweet person. That's what you can call Hans Landa in this film from Quentin Tarantino. He was played by the well-known actor Christoph Waltz
Movie: Terminator 2
Actor: Robert Patrick
Cold-blooded and ruthless, ready to kill people in his path for the sake of one goal. Kill Sarah Connor
8) Hannibal Lecter
Movie: The Silence of the Lambs
Actor: Antony Hopkins
Not the main villain, but much more memorable. Hannibal is so loved by the audience that he even spawned a whole series of films and is considered a cult villain. For this role, Anthony Hopkins deservedly received an Oscar
7) Anton Chigurh
Movie: No Country for Old Men
Actor: Javier Bordem
A hired killer who inspires horror with his mere presence. Anton is a person who decides the fate of a person with a coin. They say that after this role, the wife of Javier Bordem was even afraid to stay in the same apartment with him. Here's how to play so that even a loved one is afraid of you in real life!
Movie: Avengers: Infinity War
Actor: Josh Brolin
Thanos is a complex villain, eager to kill trillions of living beings with very good motives. Thanos first appeared in the 2012 Avengers movie but didn't play a major role, and was played by a different actor. But the 2018 version gave us a deep character, played amazingly by Josh Brolin.
5) Norman Stansfield
Actor: Gary Oldman
Corrupt cop, drug addict and murderer. Gary Oldman did a great job with this role. The scene where Norman shoots an entire family, including a little boy, causes a special hatred for him.
4) Freddy Krueger
Movie: A Nightmare on Elm Street
Actor: Robert Englund
In fourth place is Freddy Krueger. In general, slasher films from the early years gave us a huge number of iconic villains (Jason Voorhees, Ghostface, Leatherface, Michael Myers, Pennywise), but if you choose from them, Freddie will be the most iconic. It was he who became the king of slashers, and the franchise itself forever entrenched in the cinema hall of fame.
3) Darth Vader
Movie: Star Wars
Actor: James Earl Jones
A true icon of the entire Star Wars franchise. Palpatine's apprentice, now a Jedi, who was consumed by a dark force. Is there anything to explain here? Everyone knows Darth Vader for a long time.
Movie: Dark Khight
Actor: Heath Ledger
A psychopathic clown and nemesis of Batman. First performed superbly by Jack Nicholson in Tim Burton's 1989 film. However, in 2008 he was surpassed by Heath Ledger, whose performance turned the entire superhero genre upside down! Blessed memory to you, Heath ...
Actor: Tobin Bell
The main serial killer is John Kramer, also known as Jigo. John Kramer is a man who lost everything in his life in an instant and decides to test those who do not value their lives by kidnapping and forcing them to mutilate themselves or kill another under threat of death. Tobin Bell does a great job of making this villain sympathetic. No matter who is talking about the latest films in the franchise, one fact is hard to argue with. Jigsaw is if not the most, then definitely one of the most iconic villains in history.
