While most of us pay more attention to the hero of a movie, you cannot deny that a really good movie always includes one thing, an epic villain. Without epic villains, the really good heroes have nobody to do battle with, making villains essential to the plot of any memorable movie. Here are some of the most memorable villains to come to the silver screen, and if you haven’t gotten to see these villains in action, then you should make it a point to do so.
Darth Vader, who’s epic, memorable voice was played by none other than James Earl Jones, is one of the most popular, loved super- villains of all time. He has enthralled, excited, entertained, and frightened Star Wars fans for years. No other villain has had such a presence I mean, all you need to do is hear the sound of his breathing to know exactly who is coming, and you are hooked.
The Joker, as played by Heath ledger, is a villain of immense proportions. No other villain has ever so touched our most primal fears as The Joker did in the movie the Dark Knight. He was frightfully terrifying, yet, he reminds us of ourselves so much that we begin to question just how much we are like him. The truth is that there is a Joker hidden in all of us on a small scale, and Heath Ledger has showed us this fact in the second Batman movie.
Freddy Kruger, from the Nightmare on Elm Street, is a villain who all of us know about. This stalker of the nightmare realm has frightened all of us at one time or another. If there has ever been a villain to make us afraid to go to sleep, it was Freddy Kruger. If you have not seen the Nightmare on Elm Street, then you need to get it and watch it today!
