You are right these are all dramatic stories, so far. But some stories are based on true stories.

A brillant list !!! But about Liam Nesson in Taken 2 (putting his family in danger once again !!), and if you want to put tv's dads, you still have Danny Devito in It's always sunny in philadelphia !!

How about the dad in "East is East?"

The dad in "The War Zone" is the worst I've seen on this list. I was disgusted and shocked when I realized that he raped the baby . I mean sexually abusing the daughter was repugnant in of itself but that really took the cake for depravity.

How about the dad in "Bad Boy Bubby? "Christ, you're a weirdo kid." The father in "The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence)" is never seen but rapes his young son repeatedly and turns him into a damaged psychopath.
