The 10 Most Evil Movie Characters
We all adore Good vs Evil stories, but the good is no good without the bad and ugly. Here are the some of those guys who made me want to dive into the screen and rip their heads off.

Harry Powell (Robert Mitchum), The Night of the Hunter

Robert Mitchum

A hymn singing preacher, blue beard and child killer in a damn evil package, Robert Mitchum's portrayal of Harry Powell is still as spine chilling as it was more than half a century ago.


Frank (Henry Fonda), Once Upon a Time in the West

Henry Fonda
Frank is most brutal Wild West outlaw ever put to screen. He kicks the crutches from under a cripple, makes a noosed guy stand on his brother's shoulders and shoots a running child. Pure evil gold.

Frank Booth (Dennis Hopper), Blue Velvet

Dennis Hopper
A gangster with sadomasochistic fetishes and a gas addiction, Frank Booth degraded women to the extreme. His misogynistic treatment of the then beautiful Isabella Rossellini is legendary.

General Mireau (George McReady), Paths of Glory

General Mireau
A nightmare of a power hungry egomaniac, General Mireau is one commander you do not want to serve under. Its a character which explicitly reveals the worthlessness of human life during wars in particular and armies in general.

Antonio Salieri (F. Murray Abraham), Amadeus

F. Murray Abraham
Jealousy drove Antonio Salieri to insanity but won an Oscar for F. Murray Abraham. His performance is a damning illustration of human ego and the fear of being deposed.

Captain Bligh (Charles Laughton), Mutiny on the Bounty

Captain Bligh
Charles Laughton had a penchant for creating and playing evil characters and as Captain Bligh, he was at his most brutal. If ever there was a man obsessed with subservience and discipline, it was Captain Bligh.

Nurse Rached (Louise Fletcher), One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest

Louise Fletcher
Putting all sweet and sexy nurse stereotypes to rest with one true powerfully bitchy and manipulative character, Nurse Rached might be the most evil woman ever to grace the reels.

Amon Goeth (Ralph Fiennes), Schindler’s List

Ralph Fiennes
Amon Goeth took the cold, bloodthirsty arrogance of Nazis to the extreme. Rarely has a character been so steadfastly vile.

Hans Beckert (Peter Lorre), M

Peter Lorre
Beckert committed such heinous child killing acts that it prompted a force of vagrants to launch a manhunt. Even the Nazis made a reference to the character's evilness.

Minnie Castevet (Ruth Gordon), Rosemary’s Baby

Ruth Gordon
Minnie Castevet was one hell of an annoying old lady… and nothing's more evil than a woman who conspires to impregnate a girl with the devil's child.

    Another character to consider is Roger from Lord of the Flies. He does not speak much, but does deliberately kill another child.
  • maxine
    I think a character that should be put up here is the father from "thousand acre wood". he consistently raped his two daughters until they moved out, and denied it when going to trial at around the age of 80

  • PAtrick

    Damien from The Omen is the most evil.  He was the devil's son.  It doesn't get any more evil than that.
