Best Villains Ever!!! (Human version)
5241 8.1 8.71. The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
He has uncanny wit and intelligence. He can talk someone into swallowing their own toungue or eating pieces of their own face. He has a habit of killing only those who prove pompous and disrespectful, and he kills them in creative, mocking ways. He's an accomplished psychologist, an unfailing profiler, and he absorbs culture and history wherever he goes.
Say hello to the impeccably refined, gourmet cannibalistic serial murderer himself.
Thanks to his creator, author Thomas Harris, and his portrayers, the amazing Sir Anthony Hopkins, and his lesser known (at least in America)younger self, Gaspard Ulliel, Doctor Lector has been keeping us on our toes for a generation.

The ideal psychopath--quiet and unassuming with almost zero reaction and no warning whatsoever that he is about to put an air gun to your head and blow a nail into your brain. Chigurh can survive explosives, shotguns, and car wrecks (mostly caused by him) with massive injuries and broken bones and not blink an eye as he is putting himself back together.
This constant flatline, the fact that he places it all on the flip of a coin...and the Dorothy Hamill hair-cut, are what makes author Cormac McCarthy the creator of one of the most dangerous men of the past five years. Cheers to Javier Bardem for, um...is there such a thing as anti-acting?
5959 8.4 93. The Dark Knight (2008)
We know nothing about the Dark Knight version of Batman's greatest nemesis because he has several different stories as the film progresses. There is no known reasoning behind his madness...only a desire to kill as many people as possible in a series of highly amusing ironic games made to drive the masked hero crazy; and the audience in the process.
The Joker has never been one of my favorite villains, but let's face it...Jonathan Nolan and Heath Ledger breathed a new lust for death into a worn out character. He kills with a laugh, looks great in a nurses outfit, has a secret sense of poetic justice, and has forever coined the phrase, "Why so serious?"
