[[folder:#0 - 9]]
* ''Film/EightMM'': We have TheSociopath and {{Sadist}} MalevolentMaskedMan Machine. Machine takes part in snuff films to feed his depraved appetites and he is the one who rapes and murders an innocent woman on camera. When the tape is investigated, Machine is willing to kill more people, and commit more rapes on camera. When he tries to kill the hero, he even gleefully whispers while strangling him how hard he's getting from the violence. Machine has no FreudianExcuse or reasoning for his action and he serves to show how a monster can come in the most innocuous of guises, particularly when you see under the mask [[spoiler: Machine is a bald, chubby, harmless looking man named George who asks "were you expecting a monster?"]]
* ''Film/TwelveYearsASlave'': Edwin Epps is a chilling, living example of the utter horrors of slavery and all that it entails. Epps runs his plantation with an iron fist and any slave who picks less than 200 pounds of cotton a day get [[ATasteOfTheLash the lash]]. Succeeding is no guarantee of safety, as Epps is liable to fly into violent furies when he's drunk, or [[ForTheEvulz just because he wants to hurt someone.]] Epps forces the slaves out of needed sleep to force them to dance for his amusement in a parody of a Gentleman's Ball and focuses especially on a beautiful slave named Patsey who he calls his Queen Of The Field for her talent with cotton-picking. Epps repeatedly rapes her, saying he can do what he wants with his property. He also flies into jealous furies over Patsey and later in the film forces TheHero Solomon to whip her by holding a gun to Solomon's head. Losing patience, Epps simply takes the whip from Solomon and lashes into Patsey until her back is cut to bloody shreds. When Solomon is revealed a free man, he can only think of the ''[[ItsAllAboutMe monetary loss]]'' this means to him.
* ''Film/ThirteenAssassins'': Lord Naritsugu is TheCaligula to an insane degree. His very first scene has him raping the daughter-in-law of a lord who's hosting him for the night, and then killing her husband for good measure. This isn't an isolated incident, either. Naritsugu has been doing this for so long, he threatens the very stability of the nation, and nobody can touch him, as he's the Shogun's brother. Later, we see him tie up a family for target practice ([[WouldHurtAChild including a little girl]]) and hear how he massacred a peasant revolt, taking the leader's daughter, after cutting out her tongue and chopping off her limbs, for his use as a sex slave. His only reaction to seeing the titular assassins mow down his loyal soldiers who die in defense of him is to contemplate how amazing the era of war must have been while deciding to return to such days.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:A - C]]
* ''Film/AlienResurrection'': Dr. Mason Wren is the head scientist of the covert military operation on the starship the USS Auriga, performing illegal experiments to bring back the Xenomorphs. He clones the deceased Ellen Ripley multiple times to extract the Queen hibernating in her. Most of the clones are born mutated and they die agonizing deaths, and he stores them for further study. He keeps the second-to-last one [[FateWorseThanDeath alive in constant pain and agony]]. He persuades General Perez to hire a bunch of space pirates to kidnap deep space travelers while they are still sleeping inside their stasis pods, and then implants them with facehuggers while looking on with smug satisfaction. He is ready to execute all of the pirates on the mere suspicion that one of them might be an infiltrator. When the Xenomorphs escape and they all try to get off the ship, [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder he betrays the others and murders Call as soon as he gets a weapon]] and leaves everyone else to be killed by the Xenomorphs so he can pilot the ship back to Earth himself. He later takes a hostage whom he threatens to kill in a last attempt to win.
* ''Film/AnAmericanWerewolfInParis'': Claude is the leader of a gang of SocialDarwinist werewolves and owner of the Club de la Luna. Claude made himself a werewolf by stealing the blood of the benevolent werewolf Serafina. Upon doing this, Claude uses his club to lure tourists and thrill seekers in before he and his pack transform and massacre them all. Claude uses his club to lure people to their deaths. When the hero, Andy, is bitten during a visit to the club, Claude tries to get Andy to join the Pack by forcing him to murder his friend Chris. When Claude learns Serafina's scientist father is working on a cure that ended up causing immediate transformation, he raids his lab to murder him and steal it to transform whenever he wants to kill innocent people.
* ''Film/{{Anaconda}}'': [[MagnificentBastard Paul Sarone]] is a former priest from Paraguay who decided to become a [[EvilPoacher snake poacher]] in the Amazon, catching them for rich clients. He arranged with his old hunting partner Matteo to lure a documentary film crew to a giant, man-eating Anaconda's home territory to use them as bait for the hunt. He incapacitates the team leader with a poisonous wasp before saving his life to win the crew's trust and offers them a "shortcut" that leads right into the snake's territory. The passengers are picked off one by one by the Anaconda, which crushes its prey in its coils before [[EatenAlive slowly digesting them alive]]. Sarone [[ManipulativeBastard manipulates one of them]] into becoming his "[[WeCanRuleTogether partner]]", but he sacrifices the guy without a second thought when he prevents the others from shooting the snake when it grabs his ally, because he can't make a profit off a dead animal. He strangles a woman to death with his thighs when she's come to get revenge for her dead boyfriend. He is ultimately overthrown but escapes, and captures two of the remaining people inside the Anaconda's feeding grounds. He douses them with monkey blood and tries to feed them to the snake so he can trap it, while mocking their impending deaths.
* ''Film/{{Apocalypto}}'': While all of the Mayan warriors are a particularly nasty lot, none stand out so much as the vicious [[TheDragon Dragon]] to the [[BigBad lead hunter Zero Wolf]] Middle-Eye. One of their best hunters and fighters, Middle-Eye is also the only rapist, who takes one of the women of a conquered village into a hut to violate her, and kills her after, as her husband Blunt struggles futilely to save her. When TheHero Jaguar Paw nearly kills Middle-Eye in a fight, Middle-Eye vengefully slits his father's throat in front of him and names Jaguar Paw 'Almost' in response. When the new captives are being marched back to the capital city, Middle-Eye at one point decides to lighten the load by throwing an exhausted slave to his death. Middle-eye stands above his fellow slave hunters in depravity and the others consider him sick.
* ''Film/BadBoys'': The first movie gives us French drug dealing gangster Fouchet, who never had pity for anyone and orchestrated several murders pretty unnecessary. He masterminds the theft of millions of dollars worth of heroin from a police station evidence lock up. To that end, he has one of his men dress up as a police officer, and then kills him in order to create a distraction. He makes off with the drugs, which he plans to sell in four days. When Eddie, who helped him set the heist up, decides to party with some hookers and a tiny portion of the stash, Fouchet kills Eddie and Max (one of the hookers), then tries to kill Julie (Max's roommate). He sends one of his men to hack Max's madame to death with an axe, kidnaps Julie for use as leverage, tries to kill Mike and Marcus (our cops) several times over, kills his chemistry team for "fucking with my schedule", and murders his buyer when the police interrupt the deal. His last act is to try and force Mike to kill him, and when that fails, to pull out a hidden pistol and try to kill Mike.
* ''Bad Dreams'': Dr. Berrisford is a mild, unassuming man who runs a hospital for those with mental trauma. In reality, he is a sadist with a god-complex and wishes to test his theories on suicide on his patients. Berrisford manipulates his mentally fragile patients emotionally to make them snap, resulting in them killing themselves and others. He has one leap out her window to the street, and has another throw her head into a turbine. One patient he leads to the roof to manipulate her into jumping off before the hero of the movie rescues her. Berrisford simply tries to push them off himself, after having mentally tortured said patient the entire film by planting the idea in her head that the ghost of a cult leader who'd tried to kill her was haunting her.
* ''Literature/TheBadSeed'': Rhoda, the perfect [[EnfantTerrible little]] [[CreepyChild girl]], kills a classmate to get a medal he'd won, had earlier killed an old woman by "accidentally" bumping into her on the ice, sets a suspicious caretaker on fire and plots to kill a friendly neighbor to get her pet lovebirds.
* ''Film/{{Banlieue 13}}'' (''District 13''): Taha is a brutal Parisian drug lord who kills anyone he doesn't like, [[BadBoss especially his own minions]]. He controls the largest gang-run ghetto, which the government walled off from the rest of the city to stop the further spread of crime. He's largely responsible for the deterioration in the district, but unlike the government he takes an active hand in making things worse by terrorizing the population to submit to his rule and dumping his drugs there. When a group of his minions fails to recover a large stash kept by Leito, he shoots them in quick succession until one of them comes up with an idea. When Leito and his sister Lola almost have him arrested, he uses his power to makes a deal with the cops to imprison Leito instead. He takes Lola so he can keep her as a beaten, drug-addicted sex slave on a leash in his personal quarters. When a nuclear bomb goes missing and is found by his gang, he considers selling it to arms dealers before blackmailing the police and the government with the lives of 2 million people by aiming it at the city centre with a missile launcher. He chains up Lola to the missile for good measure so the launch will incinerate her.
* {{Franchise/Batman}}'s nemesis SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker qualifies for this trope in both live action incarnations:
** ''{{Film/Batman}}'': Though The Joker/Jack Napier may not have been quite as gritty in his approach, the sheer scope of his reign of terror puts him on more or less the same level as his counterpart in ''Film/TheDarkKnight''. Even before his transformation, Jack Napier was outright horrible: he was the one who murdered Bruce Wayne's parents, and if his accomplice hadn't yelled at him to get out of there, [[WouldHurtAChild the psycho would have killed young Bruce as well]]. In the present day, for starters, he intends to poison all the Gothamites with Smylex Gas for no other reason than his own amusement. He has three mob bosses killed (with him even joking about their deaths, at least one of which qualified under NightmareFuel, where he electrocutes him with enough voltage to turn him into a charred skeleton after claiming that shaking his hand will be the end of it if he refuses to agree with the Joker). He also horrifically disfigures his girlfriend Alicia Hunt and was implied to have thrown her off a building later on in the film under the guise of suicide to free himself for Vicki Vale ("You can't make an omelet without breaking some eggs."). Gasses an art gallery full of people to death just to have some "alone time" with Vicki Vale and puts the components of Smylex into different cosmetics to cause random city-wide deaths just to make the people panic. He even cold-bloodedly guns down his best and only friend, Bob the Goon, just to vent his anger over Batman ruining the above attempt to gas everyone at the parade.
** ''Film/TheDarkKnight'': The Joker manages to be both a CompleteMonster AND a MagnificentBastard. At the start of the film, he has several of his minions commit what seems to be your standard bank robbery - except he also has his minions [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness kill each other off to keep most of the money for themselves after their accomplices did their job]], also disguising himself as one of their comrades. Right after that, he kills the bus driver, who apparently wasn't even in on that part of the plan, leaving himself with all the money. [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even the bank manager implied to be part of the Mob is quite horrified at the complete decadence of this criminal behavior, remarking that most criminals before them at least had honor and respect for their comrades]]. The Joker proceeds to exploit the Mob’s desire to be rid of Franchise/{{Batman}}, casually murdering henchmen, politicians and police to force Batman to unmask himself. He explicitly states that this is just an excuse. Despite implying at first that he wants payment for his services from the mob, he doesn't care one bit for money, even going so far as to [[MoneyToBurn burn his half of the Mob's money]] that he earned by retrieving it (with a man-either the mob's accountant or a crime boss- tied to the top of the money pile), causing even the Chechen mafioso to be frightened at the implications of this, thus giving a strong impression that the Joker most likely instigated the backstab-chain earlier solely ForTheEvulz and [[ItAmusedMe amusement]] of watching his thugs kill each other for money. [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even the Mob finds this a]] ''[[EvenEvilHasStandards tad]]'' [[EvenEvilHasStandards overkill]]. All the while, the Joker states how [[ForTheEvulz he’s just out to give Gotham a “better class of criminal”]]. This being the Joker, he doesn’t stop there; he also makes the accountant attempting to unmask Batman a target, blows up a hospital and attempts a Prisoner’s Dilemma Scenario to get a boatload of civilians and prisoners to blow each other up, also being the driving force behind [[StartOfDarkness Harvey Dent’s transformation into Two-Face]]. The Joker's goal is really to show that anyone and everyone can and will become a CompleteMonster if pushed far enough (or even if just given the chance). He's proven wrong. Even so, he doesn't care; no VillainousBSOD, just an annoyed shrug and an attempt to blow the two boats sky high with his own detonator.
* ''Film/BattleRoyale'': Kazuo Kiriyama from TheFilmOfTheBook stands in contrast to his [[TheStoic emotionless counterpart]] from the book and manga versions. Kiriyama in the film is a ruthless and psychopathic BloodKnight who voluntarily signed up for 'The Program' to be able to [[HuntingTheMostDangerousGame hunt down teenagers]] [[ForTheEvulz for fun.]] Throughout the film, Kiriyama wracks up the highest kill count, not caring if his victims are helpless or not, and after gunning down one girl, he uses a megaphone so everyone around can hear her pain and his execution of her. While he [[SilentAntagonist never speaks a word]], his SlasherSmile throughout the film speaks volumes for how much he is relishing his murder of everyone around him.
* ''Film/BasicInstinct'': [[TheVamp Catherine Tramell]] is a multi-millionaire [[TheSociopath sociopathic]] FemmeFatale who [[ManipulativeBitch manipulates]] and kills people [[ForTheEvulz for thrills]]. Her only known source of joy is derived from taking increasingly bigger gambles to defy death, orchestrating complex schemes to assert her dominance. Catherine is a BlackWidow type of SerialKiller who seduces people to fall for her, [[DepravedBisexual both men and women]], before killing them [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness when she grows bored of them]]. As a published crime novelist she consorts with known murderers to get inspiration and writes RomanAClef books about her own crimes to prove that she can get away with it. She [[SelfMadeOrphan killed her parents]] in a [[MakeItLookLikeAnAccident mysterious boat explosion]], killed a professor at Berkeley, hacked her boyfriend Johnny Boz to death with [[WeaponOfChoice an icepick]] [[DeathBySex during coitus]], killed detective Gus Moran, and considered killing her new plaything Nick before deciding that she wanted him as a sex toy just a bit longer. She manipulates her lesbian girlfriend Roxy into getting herself killed in a jealous attack on Nick and sets up her old acquintance Beth to [[FrameUp take the blame]] for the series of murders and get shot by Nick. Years later in London, she's still doing this with no sign of stopping or regret. When Catherine is set up with a court-ordered psychologist named Dr. Glass after another "accident", she plays mind games with him until she kills Glass's ex-wife and manipulates him to kill a rival psychologist. She frames him for both crimes and gets him committed to a mental institution for life. Catherine [[EvilGloating smugly informs him]] that she's used him for another one of her novels and admits that she's always been pure evil and likes it that way.
* ''Film/TheBigHeat'': Vince Stone is TheDragon to gangster Mike Lagana. Stone is also far crueler and more vicious than his business-minded boss is. When a cop ends up dead and the cop's girlfriend looks like she may talk, Stone kidnaps her and tortures her to death. When TheHero, Homicide investigator Bannion, first meets Stone at a nightclub, Stone is punishing a dancer by burning her with a cigarette. When Stone thinks his girlfriend, Debby Marsh, has been meeting with Bannion, he disfigures her with hot coffee and throws her out on the streets. He later attempts to kidnap Bannion's young daughter and carries out the murder of another member of the organization. When Marsh confronts him later and repays the favor by throwing boiling coffee at him, Stone mortally wounds her with a gunshot, giving Bannion a murder to finally pin on him.
* ''Film/TheBlackCat'': Hjalmar Poelzig, who plumbed depths barely considered in films in 1934. Peolzig is a Satanist and ruler of a vicious cult who conspires and tries to sacrifice an innocent traveler to Satan. It's revealed that Poelzig, in UsefulNotes/WorldWarI betrayed his "friend," Dr. Werdegast and had him sent to a prison camp so Poelzig could marry his wife. He later killed her and kept her embalmed corpse as a trophy...before marrying her and Werdegast's young daughter...and later murdering her as well.
* ''Film/{{Blacula}}'': Although briefly seen, the first film's incarnation of {{Dracula}} manages to be even worse than most other depictions. Not only is he a blood-sucking monster, he's also involved in [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain the slave trade]]. When the African prince and his wife come seeking his help, he reveals his racism and love for the slave trade, turns the prince into a vampire, renames him "Blacula", imprisons him in a coffin to starve for all eternity (and because he was now an immortal vampire, his suffering would never stop), and starves his wife to death. Unlike Blacula himself, who is a tragic character and spends most of the second film searching for a cure for his vampirism, Dracula relishes in being a vampire, showing no remorse for anything he does.
* ''Film/BlackDeath'': Langiva, the [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane supposed witch]] in a small commune , conducts supposed miracles to keep control of the town, satiating her ego. When the traveling knights come across the town, she has them captured and puts them to death in horrific ways: one crucified, another disemboweled. She demands they renounce Christianity and she will spare them, but when one does, she has him hanged. Langiva also drugs the young monk Osmund's lover to make her appear dead, and that Langiva revived her from the dead to make Osmund renounce God, but taunts Osmund later that he had killed his lover for nothing. Her final act of monstrosity is to have the leader of the knights torn apart by horses when he refuses her offer. All her actions are to [[ItsAllAboutMe satiate her ego]] and keep an iron-fisted control of the town.
* ''Film/{{Blade}}'': The vampire leader Deacon Frost, the BigBad from the first movie, is the worst villain in a setting filled with sadistic predators who kill humans as much for fun as for sustenance. Unlike the older vampire hierarchy who prefer to [[TheMasquerade remain in the shadows and rule humanity behind the scenes]] to protect their interests, he wants to openly reduce all humans to cattle despite [[TranshumanTreachery originally having been one himself]] instead of a vampire pureblood. He murders a vampire elder in an exceptionally painful way by removing his teeth and letting him burn up in the sunrise, and kills all the other council members to complete a ritual sacrifice so he can rule supreme as a PhysicalGod. He [[BadBoss murders his human minions whenever he likes]], attacks Blade's mentor Whistler and then leaves him to die slowly, tries to feed a woman to a [[OurZombiesAreDifferent ghoul-type zombie]], and [[WouldHurtAChild tries to kill a little girl]] in front of Blade by first threatening to slit her throat and then throwing her in front of city traffic to make his escape. His worst crime isn't revealed until the end of the film, when Blade discovers that Frost was the vampire who attacked his pregnant human mother and turned Blade into a Dhampyr to begin with. Frost fully intended the unborn child to die and since then has kept Blade's mother as his private consort and facilitated her corruption into a remorseless monster.
* ''The Blind Menace'', starring Shintaro Katsu (or ''Shiranui Kengyo'' in Japan) before his role in the ''Film/{{Zatoichi}}'' series, has as its VillainProtagonist the blind would-be CorruptPolitician Suginoichi. A manipulative snake of a man, Suginoichi spends the film committing a series of atrocities, from extortion, blackmail, murder and rape, while framing others for his crimes. In such instance, a noblewoman comes to Suginoichi for a loan of 50 ryo to save her brother from debt. Suginoichi gives her the money, but rapes her as well. The next day, in front of her husband, Suginoichi asks Lady Namie to return the money he's given her "for safekeeping." He later informs her he'll return it to her in exchange for sex- 5 ryo at a time. Suginoichi engineers his master's fall and death to take his place and when another of his rape victims [[DrivenToSuicide kills herself out of shame]], he simply laughs. He manipulates Yakuza into murdering his master and takes his place, securing a high-class wife in the process. When he realizes her infidelity, he decides she'll never fully belong to him and murders her as well. At the end, when his fortunes collapse, Suginoichi spends his downfall ranting at all around him, issuing impotent threats while unable to believe his defeat.
* ''Film/TheBlob'': Dr. Meddows in the 1988 remake is a military scientist specializing in bioweapons. He's inadvertently responsible for developing the Blob by sending the satellite and the proto-Blob sample in space, where it mutated before it fell back down on Earth. He didn't expect it to develop into a ravenous, all-consuming monster, but he is [[JustThinkOfThePotential more than pleased at this development and the military potential]]. He cardons off the town where the Blob has started its spread so he can test its killing potential on all the inhabitants and to perform further experiments on the survivors. He's even willing to sacrifice his own men to further his goal, as he orders the sewers blocked off when two of the heroes and one of his men try to escape from the pursuing Blob.
* ''Film/BlowOut'': Burke is a [[ProfessionalKiller professional assassin]] who shoots out the tires on a Presidential candidate's car to send it into the water. While he succeeds in killing his intended target, a woman in the car with him survives. Deciding he needs to eliminate her as well, Burke devises a truly cruel plan to cover his tracks. So there won't be inconvenient questions, Burke becomes a SerialKiller by targeting women who look similar to his target, strangling them to death with a garrote. He finally attempts to kill the girl, Sally during a parade so her death will be passed off as the act of a random maniac. Burke is indicated to be nothing more than a sociopath using his job to hurt others.
* ''Film/BlueVelvet'': Frank Booth, a sadistic sociopath with a penchant for random acts of rape and violence, [[EstablishingCharacterMoment is introduced]] by savagely beating and raping an abused nightclub singer and then taunting her about her mutilated husband (by him no less). It later turns out that Booth kidnapped the poor woman's husband and son (killing the husband in the process) only in order to make the woman his sadomasochistic sex slave, even cutting off her dead husband's ear and presenting it to her, just to torment her.]] When he figured out that Jeffrey Beaumont warned the police, he, in act of reprisal, beats Dorothy nearly to death, strips her naked, and leaves her in front of Beaumont's house. During the ending, we also discovered he has also [[BadBoss brutally lobotomized one of his henchmen]] after having killed Dorothy's husband]]. Not to speak of raping the protagonist.
* ''Film/{{Braveheart}}'': King Edward I "Longshanks" is portrayed as [[HistoricalVillainUpgrade far more evil than his real life counterpart ever was]]. Introduced as a "cruel pagan" who has annexed Scotland to England and just returned from a war with France, he authorizes mass rape in Scotland by restoring the ancient law of ''[[DroitDuSeigneur Ius Primae Noctis]]'', giving English lords in Scotland the right to claim "first night" of any peasant girl in their domain upon their marriage. He's doing this to win support from the English lords necessary to solidify his rule in Scotland and to gradually end the Scottish as a nation by outbreeding them. He sees his effeminate son Edward II simply as the continuation of his legacy, throws his son's homosexual lover out of a window for daring to speak to him as an advisor and beats his son's face in afterwards. After William Wallace stages a Scottish rebellion against him, Longshanks announces his intent to reduce the country to ashes just out of petty spite at Wallace. During an engagement with the Scots he orders his archers to [[UnfriendlyFire fire on his own troops]] while they're busy fighting the Scots, justifying it by stating that [[WeHaveReserves his men are expendable]]. After Wallace is captured by the English due to a conspiracy among the Scottish lords, Longshanks has him slowly and painfully tortured to death in a public execution while listening on from his own death bed.
* ''Film/BrotherhoodOfTheWolf'': Jean-Francois de Morangias appears to be a foppish, [[EvilCripple crippled aristocrat]], but is in reality [[ObfuscatingDisability a deadly enforcer for an evil cult]]. After returning from Africa, Jean-Francois brought with him a lion that he [[TheBeastmaster controls]] and keeps in a state of constant agony, using it to slaughter people while the poor creature is in so much pain it can't control itself. He also reveals a rather [[BrotherSisterIncest perverse lust towards his sister Marianne]] and later rapes her. While Jean-Francois is merely TheDragon to the Cult's leader, he comes off as the far more evil, cruel, and deadly of the two and his mastery of the Beast indicates he might [[DragonInChief be the one really in charge.]]
* ''Film/BulletproofMonk'': Strucker is a staunch Nazi who seems to extend his racial prejudices to everyone who isn't a White Anglo-Saxon Protestant later in the film. He is ruthless in his goal for world domination, perhaps epitomized early in the film where he slaughters a temple-full of Tibetan monks, [[ActualPacifist who refuse to defend themselves]]. He also has the informant who'd been helping him brutally executed and threatens his own granddaughter [[YouHaveFailedMe when she continues to fail him]]. He has no redeeming qualities and no goals beyond orchestrating a Holocaust Times Ten. This all might just be in order to make the thief protagonist look a bit more amiable.
* Nacho from the Spanish film ''Bullying'' is a great example of how severe bullying can be. This is demonstrated by him forcing [[TheWoobie Jordi]] to wet himself on camera, forcing him to drink alcohol and smoke who-knows-what, subsequently pointing a gun at his head, [[KickTheDog fracturing his dog's leg]] and [[ManipulativeBastard manipulating him into dropping from the basketball team to do his bidding with the threat of more violence and humiliation]], a continuous chain of abuse. He goes on to try to [[AttemptedRape rape]] and [[AxCrazy kill]] Jordi. This culminates in [[spoiler: [[DrivenToSuicide Jordi committing suicide.]]]]
* From the unconventional vampire tale ''Film/{{Byzantium}}'' about an immortal mother and daughter pair, we have Captain Ruthven from their past. During the Napoleonic wars, Ruthven preys on young women by kidnapping them and forcing them into prostitution with a bit of rape as his own personal compensation. This fate befalls future vampire Clara. Ruthven considers her his 'favorite' prostitute, having her gang-raped by his upper class associates and regularly violating and beating her himself. After she gives birth to her daughter Eleanor, Clara later cheats Ruthven out of immortality by becoming a vampire in his stead. In retribution, Ruthven rapes the teenage Eleanor to spite Clara. Making this worse was Ruthven slowly rotting of an STD. After raping Eleanor, he coldly welcomes her to his world: a slow death. Even in a world of vampires, Ruthven stands apart as [[HumansAreBastards the worst the film has to offer.]]
* ''Film/CabinByTheLake'' and its sequel ''Return to Cabin by the Lake'': Stanley Caldwell is [[MostWritersAreWriters a horror movie writer]] who moonlights as a misogynistic SerialKiller. To get inspiration for his scripts, he kidnaps teenage girls and locks them up in a soundproof room for several days before he dresses them up and [[FalseReassurance promises to let them go]], but instead drowns them in the nearby Lake Summit by weighing them down. He collects the corpses to create a grotesque underwater graveyard, which he frequently visits with scuba gear to tend to the decaying corpses. When his final victim Mallory escapes and his crimes are discovered by the police, he kidnaps her again to kill her succesfully before stabbing a movie director to death and preparing to drown his agent as well. Only Mallory is saved, but they [[NeverFoundTheBody never find Stanley's body]] and he disappears to continue his kills in secret. When a movie is being made based on his story, he infiltrates the movie set to commandeer the production.

When his second murder spree is finally halted by Allison, a screenwriter who discovers his true identity, he kidnaps her to make her the centerpiece of his newest underwater graveyard. Allison at first theorizes that Stanley must have been driven insane due to not being recognized, but he explains that [[ForTheEvulz there's no real reason he became a serial killer]].

Throughout the films, Chucky commits many more murders for his [[ForTheEvulz own amusement]] and replaces blanks with real ammo at a military camp war games training solely to enjoy the chaos.

Once the valley is his, Cross plans to use his new proposed reservoir to irrigate the land and increase its worth by millions.

Cross's secondary goal in the movie is to take possession of his "grandchild" with the intention of subjecting her to the same abuse he subjected Evelyn to.

* ''Film/{{Cobra}}'': The Night Slasher is a psychotic murderer responsible for terrorizing the streets of Los Angeles at night.

In the sequel (''The Collection''), the Collector is revealed to turn his captives into drugged up cannon fodder, and kills a group of intruders by having them crushed to death in an elevator.

He orchestrated the whole thing, gave weapons to the psychopath [=McStarley=], and obviously placed less value on human life than entertainment and money. During the sickening rape scene of Paco's wife by [=McStarley=], his only expressed concern to his crew is to zoom in to "give the viewers what they want".

Then he tracks down the wounded Paco, brutally beats him with Saiga's help, shoots him with an arrow as he lies helpless, then sets him on fire.

* ''Franchise/TheCrow'':
** [[Film/TheCrow The first film]]: Top Dollar is a Detroit crime boss who established himself as the supreme ruler of all criminal activity in the city.

He organizes Devil's Night, in which buildings are burned down all throughout the city. He orders people terrorized out of their homes, and one such couple includes Eric Draven and his fiance Shelley, who are both violently murdered and Shelley raped by his goons. He didn't specifically give the order for the murders, but he expresses no regret when he learns about it and admits responsibility. He eventually becomes tired of the profit reaped from the arson and other activities, and announces his plans at a criminal convention to burn down everything purely ForTheEvulz. His depravity extends to [[VillainousIncest an incestuous relationship with his half-sister]], whom he seems to enjoy purely as a sexual consort and for her supernatural knowledge, expressing no noticeable sorrow after her death.

He floods the city with drugs so dangerous that they kill the users half the time. He executes one of his goons when the guy protests that there aren't enough return customers by dumping some of the drugs, as Judah would prefer to kill more people than make a profit. He orders the death of Ashe and his son because the boy happened to witness his operation, as well as any other innocents who do. When Ashe is resurrected and comes for him, Judah captures his crow and ritualistically impales it to steal its power.

A MadScientist obsessed with life beyond death, he plunders graves to get the parts to make his monster, and has no compunction committing murder to cover his tracks. Defined by his utter separation from human morality after a point, Frankenstein begins to gain the parts by simply murdering people and harvesting them for resources. His worst moment is when in a later film in the series, he rapes a woman for nothing more than his own satisfaction, proving his only devotion is to his own desires above even science.
* ''Film/CutthroatIsland'': Douglas "Dawg" Brown is the BlackSheep of the Adams pirate brothers and the captain of the ship ''Reaper''. Each of the four brothers has a piece of a map to a fabulous treasure and Dawg wants it all to himself.

When his brother gives his map to his daughter Morgan, Dawg stops at nothing to kill his niece. He attacks his last brother Mordecai and threatens to run him through if Mordecai doesn't give up the map. When a luckless mook accidentally falls into Mordecai and impales him on Dawg's knife, Dawg kills the man growling [[HypocriticalHumor that he killed Dawg's brother]], though he's only angry Mordecai died ''before'' Dawg got the map.

[[folder:D - F]]
* ''Film/{{Daredevil}}'': [[ProfessionalKiller Bullseye]], a swaggering PsychoForHire who prides himself on his unerring aim and his total lack of regard for human life. [[TheDragon Retained]] by [[BigBad Wilson "The Kingpin" Fisk]] as a troubleshooter, Bullseye is a mess of [[HairTriggerTemper barely contained violence]], who regularly murders in his off time. Over the course of the film he [[DisproportionateRetribution kills a man for insulting him]] in a bar, chokes an elderly woman to death for talking too much on a plane, murders another man in order to steal his motorcycle, and stabs one of Fisk's guards to death [[ImprobableWeaponUser with pencils]] after deciding he'd rather not go through security. That's in addition to killing Nikolas and Elektra Natchios (and two of their bodyguards) on Fisk's orders, and trying to hunt down an already wounded Daredevil for the heinous crime of making him miss. An arrogant braggart who loves showing off against weaker opponents, and who is reduced to a sniveling wreck when beaten, Bullseye is completely void of redeeming qualities.
* ''Film/{{Darkman}}'': Durant is a crime boss turned PsychoForHire who is introduced having a potential obstacle's entire outfit executed before he tortures the boss by chopping off all his fingers with a cigar cutter. Durant later attacks Dr. Peyton Westlake, setting him on fire and ruining his life by turning him into the titular AntiHero Darkman.

* ''Film/DeathProof'': Stuntman Mike is a former stuntman and expert driver who becomes a SerialKiller of women by using his car as a murder weapon. He modifies the car to make it "100% Death Proof" to immunize himself from harm. Then he can use it for vehicular homicide by crashing into cars full of people and killing them in the process, or drive so dangerously that any passengers will die from the blunt force trauma caused by being thrown around in his car and hitting hard surfaces repeatedly. He extensively stalks his victims beforehand, and seems to derive sexual pleasure from his kills. He also toys with his prey, as he pursues a group of women attempting a stunt where one of them is on the hood of their car at high speed. He chases them down the road in a lengthy pursuit to see them terrified for their lives, getting kicks off the whole thing.
* ''Film/DeathRace'': The [[SmugSnake smug]], ruthless female prison warden Hennessey is [[EstablishingCharacterMoment introduced casually strolling through the yard unguarded to show how much even the worst inmates fear her]]. She rebuilt the Terminal Island prison to include a car race track where the prisoners perform death races with the promise of being released after winning five times, broadcasting the event to make a hefty profit. The racers and their female navigators die in the most brutal and graphic ways in the races, getting run over, blown up, or gutted by each other or Hennessey's armored trucks. She arranges to kill anyone close to making the quotum as she did with the original Frankenstein, a mask-wearing crowd favorite. She orders the innocent Jensen's wife killed and frames him for it, then once he's in her prison blackmails him with his daughter's well being to force him to take up Frankenstein's mantle. While the movie takes place in a CrapsackWorld, Hennessey simply uses her power to be as brutal as she can be to prove her superiority and butchers people for profit.
* ''Film/DeathWish'': Manny Fraker from the third film trumps all others in psychotic evil. Introduced in prison when he informs the hero Paul Kersey he's going to "kill a little old lady, just for you later," Fraker is soon out of prison and on to ruling the streets with an iron fist.

* ''Film/DemolitionMan'': [[AxCrazy Simon Phoenix]] hails from a {{dystopia}}n era of Los Angeles when the city was being overrun with violent criminals in the late 20th century, where he indulged in theft, kidnapping, rape, arson, and murder to his heart's content. He starts the movie by holding 30 people hostage and demanding a ransom, when in fact he already killed them all for his perverse amusement before the cops even arrived. He manipulates the CowboyCop John Spartan into making a misjudgment that makes him seem responsible for their deaths in the raid on Simon's compound, sending them both to a [[HumanPopsicle cryo-prison]] for decades. He's woken up in 2032, when the rebuilt megacity of San Angeles has been turned into a crimeless nanny state after a great calamity. Simon indulges in his freedom to be a maniac and spread chaos again, casually murdering almost everyone who gets in his way by beating people to death, [[EyeScream gouging out someone's eye]] to [[BorrowedBiometricBypass bypass a retinal scan]], hacking into a computer to [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impale someone to a wall]], or simply shooting them. He was unfrozen by the new society's [[WellIntentionedExtremist benevolent dictator]] Dr. Raymond Cocteau to assassinate Edgar Friendly, the major rebel leader trying to undo the oppressive system. Simon sets out on this task with murderous glee, killing many innocent bystanders in the process. He teams up with his old gang after they're unfrozen and eventually [[TheStarscream murders Cocteau]] to [[DystopiaJustifiesTheMeans start a new lawless dystopia]] where he and his minions can commit crimes all day. He starts by unfreezing every criminal locked up in the cryo-prison, including murderers, rapists, and serial killers, and gunning down all the technicians because [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness he no longer has any use for them]]. Phoenix is one of the poster boys for the malicious type of ChaoticEvil villain, inherently hating rules simply because they hold him back from being a murderous psycho.
* Some film incarnations of [[{{Satan}} The Devil]] have qualified due to their sheer monstrousness and lack of [[SatanIsGood sympathy in their portrayal]]:
** ''Film/TheDevilsAdvocate'': [[MeaningfulName John Milton]] runs an OccultLawFirm staffed by his demons and humans he corrupted, using the legal system to get violent criminals off the hook and spread corruption everywhere in the world, hoping that the Earth will become such a perversion that it will hurt Heaven and spite God. Having to work around the free will of humans, [[TheCorrupter he subtly manipulates them to give in to evil instead]]. He rapes multiple women over the years so he can find offspring good enough to mate with each other and further produce TheAntichrist. He drives [[spoiler:Kevin's wife Mary Ann]] to madness and suicide, and rapes her for half a day, leaving her with scratch and bite marks all over her body. He later taunts his son Kevin with this crime in an especially vile PostRapeTaunt. He brutally kills everyone within his company who tries to expose his crimes. When Kevin destroys his plan by killing himself, he [[OffingTheOffspring kills his daughter]] to vent his anger by turning her into a withered husk.
** ''Film/EndOfDays'': {{Satan}} is [[SealedEvilInACan released from Hell every 1000 years]] at the end of the millennium to impregnate a chosen women against her will so he can sire TheAntichrist. This will cause TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt by turning it into a nightmarish hellscape for eternity. Throughout the film he commits countless atrocities for his personal amusement or [[ForTheEvulz no reason at all]]. He [[DemonicPossession possesses a New York businessman]] to accomplish this and later leaves the damaged host to die when he finds that [[HealingFactor repairing it again]] will take too long. In his introductory scene he makes out with a woman in front of her husband in a crowded restaurant, then leaves and blows up the whole place as he walks away. He uses his powers to [[SexGod make himself sexually irresistible]] and take advantage of several women, but when it's no longer convenient for him he tries to rape the heroine kicking and screaming. He plagues his chosen concubine Christine York with vivid nightmares that he'll take her one day. He murders his own Satanist minions [[YouHaveFailedMe for the most minor failure or inconvenience]]. He burns someone alive for refusing to kill his best friend and vacating his side, kills a room full of priests trying to stop the world-ending union and earlier crucifies one to a ceiling for the awful crime of almost damaging his BadassLongcoat, and forces the hero Jericho Caine to [[MindRape relive his dead wife and child's murder]] after he refuses to help him in his plans.

* ''Film/DirtyHarry'': The Scorpio Killer (pictured above), with his nerve-screeching laugh, [[SmugSnake smug]], [[DirtyCoward cowardly]] demeanor (I have the right to a lawyer!) and sick [[ForTheEvulz sense of fun]] serves as a contrast for the loose cannon cop Harry Callahan, who still deep down cares for justice bureaucratic systems often fail to deliver while failing to give criminals apt punishments. The film starts with Scorpio sniping a swimming woman to death. His [[MoralEventHorizon actual defining moment of sinking low]] is when he kidnaps a 14-year-old girl, hides her in a well with a limited oxygen supply and sends the police a message that the girl will die if the ransom money doesn't drop in time. When Callahan delivers the money, Scorpio hits him from behind and proceeds to tell him that he changed his mind and is going to let the girl die anyway. When the girl is found, she's dead (and it's strongly implied Scorpio repeatedly raped her). Later, Scorpio captures a school bus full of children, planning to [[WouldHurtAChild kill them all]].

** [[BloodKnight Koobus Venter]] is a sadistic member of a special ops team who gets his jollies off murder, and relishes being able to kill without repercussion. Koobus guns down a prawn after it's been subdued and later leads a violent hunt for Wikus, with full willingness to kill whoever gets in the way. Koobus psychologically tortures the Prawn Christopher Johnson while beating him and threatens to kill him regardless of getting Wikus, gleefully saying he can't believe he's getting paid to do hat he loves: he just loves watching the Prawns die.
** Obesandjo, The EvilCripple wheelchair bound leader of the Nigerian gangsters, sets up his racket in District 9 and distributes cat food to the aliens, which is like a drug that keeps them hooked.

When he captures Wikus, he fully plans to cut off his Prawn parts and eat them himself.

When he gets his hands on his targets, he also wastes no time in giving them brutal deaths.
* ''Film/DollarsTrilogy'':
** ''Film/AFistfulOfDollars'': Ramon Rojo (portrayed by Gian Maria Valonte) just seems to [[ForTheEvulz enjoy being evil]].

He kidnaps a woman and forces her to live with him, claiming that her husband was cheating him at cards. He slaughters the rival Baxter family as they try to surrender to him, tortures [[TheHero Joe]] for helping the woman he kidnapped escape, and, towards the end, has [[OlderSidekick Silvanito]] tortured when he thinks he might be hiding Joe and is about to hang him when Joe interrupts. That's in addition to being an ArrogantKungFuGuy regarding his skill with the [[WeaponOfChoice rifle]], an extreme {{Jerkass}} in his interactions with everybody, and the [[EvilGenius brains]] of a gang of illegal rum-runners who keeps a stranglehold on the life of a [[DyingTown small town]].
** ''Film/ForAFewDollarsMore'': El Indio (also Gian Maria Valonte) is the classic Mexican {{Bandito}}, turned UpToEleven. He obtains a secret from his cellmate, and then kills his cellmate so that he can keep the information for himself. He forces a former member of his gang to listen to his wife and infant child being slaughtered, then forces him into a duel, which he rigs in his own favour. When he discovers that Colonel Mortimer and Monco are {{bounty hunter}}s, he has them tortured, then sets them free, killing one of his own men and framing them for it; his plan is to have his gang and the bounty hunters kill each other, leaving all the loot for him. When Nino, the one gang member he'd planned to keep around is killed in front of him, El Indio displays absolutely no reaction, and he's ultimately revealed to have killed Mortimer's brother-in-law and raped his sister, [[DrivenToSuicide driving her to suicide]]. An AxeCrazy drug-addict who parasites off those around him, El Indio shocked audiences at the time, and continues to do so now.
** ''Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly'': [[ProfessionalKiller Angel Eyes/Sentenza]] ("The Bad") (Creator/LeeVanCleef) from the original cut is a [[TheSociopath sociopathic]] [[HiredGuns mercenary]] whose only concern is [[OnlyInItForTheMoney making as much money as possible]]. In the opening scenes of the film, he tracks down and murders a man at another's behest. When his victim offers him money if he will spare his life, Angel Eyes replies, "Once I'm been paid, I always see my job through to the end." He kills the man and his son, takes the money, and reports to his employer...whom he promptly kills, since he wants to keep the gold he's found out about for himself. He proceeds to [[WouldHitAGirl beat the information about the location of the gold out of a hooker]]. Later on, he has [[ColdBloodedTorture Tuco tortured]] and watches with absolutely no emotion on his face. While this is going on, he has his men force the [=POW=]s to sing in order to cover up the sounds of their friends being tortured. He's less a character than he is {{Greed}} in a trench coat and cowboy hat. He's so bad that the other two main characters — [[BlackAndGreyMorality no saints themselves]] — [[EnemyMine both agree to shoot him]] in the three-way MexicanStandoff that ends the film, [[TeethClenchedTeamwork despite their extreme distaste for one another]]. [[TheStoic Cold-blooded]] and without remorse, Angel Eyes will cross any lines, and commit any crime as long as he can make a profit doing it.
* ''Film/{{Dragonheart}}'': King Einon. At the film's start, Einon seems a youth in need of guidance by his wise mentor, but it is revealed that any honor Einon has is just a front to learn swordsmanship from Sir Bowen. After Einon finds his dying father, he just tries to wrench the crown out of the man's hands, showing what he will become. When mortally wounded, Einon is saved only when a dragon shares his heart with him, linking their lives. As King, Einon taxes and woks the people without mercy and orders a man's eyes put out with hot pokers for no real reason. Einon tries to rape the man's daughter later and when his mother tries to kill the dragon to stop Einon, Einon kills her with no remorse. While Bowen initially blames the dragon for Einon's change, it turns out Einon was always a monster and the dragon shared his heart to try to change his nature.
* ''Film/{{Dredd}}'': Madeline "[[OneBadMother Ma-Ma]]" Madrigal is the de facto ruler of the Peach Trees apartment complex and [[TheAggressiveDrugDealer the biggest and most aggressive drug lord]] spreading the Slo-Mo drug throughout Mega City One, which slows the user's perception of time. Her meteoric ascent to power in Peach Trees is noted as unprecedented for its sheer senseless carnage and bloodshed, as she and her followers slaughtered their way to the top with a SlasherSmile on her face. She is introduced having several rival gangsters skinned alive, then thrown out a ''very'' long drop after being given Slo-Mo to draw out their deaths. When the Judges arrive to investigate and capture one of her chief lieutenants, Ma-Ma has the Peach Trees complex shut down to trap Dredd and his trainee inside to silence any witnesses. She has no compunction about any civilians getting caught in the crossfire, to the point that she opens fire into an apartment block with [[GatlingGood gatling guns]] to kill the two judges. Dredd, a trigger-happy KnightTemplar himself, notes [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill just how overkill this is]]. We later learn that she personally [[EyeScream carved out the eyes]] of her lead techie to forcefully give him [[ElectronicEyes cybernetic implants]] and playfully threatens to gut him while issuing orders. The captured lieutenant is later returned to her, and she only refrains from killing him [[CantKillYouStillNeedYou because she's running low on men at that point]]. She finally arranges to blow up half the complex, with a population of thousands, by detonating a bomb tied to her heartrate.
* ''Film/DriveAngry'': Jonah King is a satanic cult leader obsessed with his own power and leading a group of psychos slavishly devoted to him. He lured the criminal AntiHero [[MeaningfulName John Milton]]'s daughter into his cult. After Milton's sudden death, King kills her husband, takes her baby girl (Milton's granddaughter) to [[WouldHurtAChild use in a sacrifice]] and forces Milton's daughter to give him a blowjob at gunpoint. She bites his dick off, after which he personally cuts off her head and [[CreepySouvenir keeps her femur as part of a cane he uses]]. When the resurrected Milton reveals his status as a eunuch, King immediately shoots the only cultist who could confirm it. He also briefly kidnaps Piper, Milton's female companion on the ride, but when she proves too much trouble to convert, he decides to kill her and [[ILoveTheDead defile her corpse afterwards]]. It's later revealed by the Accountant that King isn't actually serving {{Satan}}. The Devil is really a PunchClockVillain who hates that evil acts are committed in his name, so the baby's sacrifice is actually meaningless and is only meant to fuel King's ego. Ultimately King is just a power-tripping cultist, rapist, and baby-killer whose outward image as a messiah is a sham.
* ''Film/EasternPromises'': Semyon, the leader of TheMafiya, at first seems [[BaitTheDog a nice old man]], but it's later revealed he is a domineering, abusive and violent man who has little but contempt for his unstable, AmbiguouslyGay son Kirill and also runs a sex-slave ring in addition to his usual criminal activities. He is also the rapist of a 14-year-old girl, having raped her out of disgust when Kirill couldn't do the deed.

After Frey scorns him, he declares he'll make sure her daughter is never healed. When his superior Delacourt chastises him for his failures, Kruger just kills her and then declares he'll take over Elysium itself to [[TheCaligula give it the ruler it deserves]].
* ''Film/TheExorcist'': Pazuzu, the foul-mouthed demon, was the evil spirit that possessed Regan [=MacNeil=] in the film. He used her to commit his evil deeds such as lashing out at others and shouting obscenities such as the (in)famous YourMom quote. When faced with the Catholic priests Merrin and Karras, he mockingly encouraged them to try to remove his influence from Regan. When Merrin was left in the room with the possessed girl, he has a heart attack, which was believed to have been caused by Pazuzu himself. This left Karras alone to fight the demon. When he successfully removed Pazuzu from Regan, Pazuzu immediately went into him and tried to force Karras to kill Regan since she was of [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness no further use to him]]. Pazuzu is called the most frightening creature in a horror film for a reason.
* ''Film/TheExpendables'': [[RogueAgent Rogue CIA agent]] James Munroe, the BigBad of the first film. A drug smuggler and [[HiredGuns mercenary]], Munroe is responsible for his partner, [[TheGeneralissimo General Garza]], transforming the island of [[BananaRepublic Vilena]] into a PoliceState, using the people as labor in their drug operation.

He contracts former Expendable, Gunnar, to kill the rest of the team, and when Garza turns on him following the Expendables' assault on Vilena, he shoots the General IntheBack, kills the rest of his security detail, and tries to make good his escape, though not before instructing [[TheDragon Paine]] and [[TortureTechnician The Brit]] to torture [[TheHero Barney Ross]], and taking Sandra hostage to use as a HumanShield.

Grimsrud later loses patience with the kidnapping victim and kills her simply because her crying is getting on his nerves. When he has a dispute with a fellow conspirator over a car, Grimsrud [[MurderIsTheBestSolution just kills him]] [[AxCrazy with an axe]] and feeds his body into a woodchipper. When he's finally caught by the police, the heroine Marge Gunderson is left stunned how a human being could do the things Grimsrud has done for just "a little bit of money."
* ''The First Power'': Patrick Channing is a satanic SerialKiller who makes a pact with the devil for supernatural power. With a huge string of corpses behind him, Channing offered the deaths to Satan by carving a pentagram into every villain, earning him the name "The Pentagram Killer." After being caught and executed, Channing [[BackFromTheDead revives]] and continues killing with the added twist that he now aims for revenge against the cop who caught him. His aim after that is simply to keep killing as many people as he can forever, with the added twist he can [[DemonicPossession possess others]] as well.
* ''Film/AFistfulOfDynamite'': [[ColonelBadass Colonel]] [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Günther]] "[[TheStoic Gutierez]]" [[TheHeavy Reza]] (Antoine Saint-John) is a [[SilentAntagonist silent villain]] who, throughout the movie, doesn't express a single emotion beyond self-satisfaction. He tortures Dr. Villega into identifying various members of a crowd as revolutionaries, then has them shot in front of him, smiling a little wider with each body that hits the ground. He's also the man responsible for [[spoiler:the deaths of Juan's children and father]], singlehandedly causes the film to shift from BlackComedy to serious drama, leads an army that seems intent on [[SociopathicSoldier killing or imprisoning everyone they meet]], and in the climax, guns down [[spoiler:Mallory]] from behind. This, coupled with his ImplacableMan status makes him utterly terrifying.
* ''Film/FlowersInTheAttic'': Corrinne and Olivia Foxworth. Olivia, Corrinne's mother, is a fanatic who tortures and abuses her family for what she perceives as "sinful." Corrinne, having lost her parents' favor by running away and marrying her own uncle, wants to inherit the family fortune, but cannot if she and her husband had children.

He keeps the seemingly normal infant, now named Martin, as a test subject until his mutations will reappear. He presents himself as a fatherly figure to Martin while manipulating him for his own ends. He uses a lab dog that Martin grew attached to for the telepod experiments, and when the experiment fails, he keeps the mutated creature alive in agony for years for further study.

* ''Frankenstein's Army'': [[MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate Dr.]] Viktor Frankenstein, the grandson of [[Literature/{{Frankenstein}} the more famous Frankenstein]], is a true MadDoctor working to make an army of [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot nightmarish cyborg zombies]], ostensibly for [[StupidJetpackHitler the Nazis]] but in reality to [[TheEvilsOfFreeWill purge the world (minus himself) of free will]]. To create his minions he massacres soldiers and civilians alike (even slaughtering a convent of nuns in order to convert their church into a zombie factory) and uses both dead and living subjects ([[WouldHurtAChild including children]]), though he feels fresh meat is more effective, and for no reason other than his own depravity extracts parts from his subjects while they're fully conscious. While he claims efficiency as a goal most if not all of his creations are just twisted amalgamations of flesh and machine parts with no apparent purpose beyond inducing terror and slaughtering all in their way.
* ''Film/{{Frenzy}}'': [[SerialKiller Bob Rusk]] is one of the most deranged villains in an Creator/AlfredHitchcock film. Known as the "Necktie Murderer," Rusk is implied to rape his victims, before graphically strangling them to death with his tie. Rusk displays his violent compulsions multiple times, but even frames one of the only supposed friends he has for the murders with a dead woman's item, perfectly willing to let innocents take the fall for him.
* ''Film/FrightNight2011'': Jerry Dandridge stands in stark contrast to the original film's [[AffablyEvil charming and likable monster]]. The film opens with Jerry having slaughtered a family, including the teenage son, out of suspicion the boy was spying on him. Jerry reveals himself as a savage predator who kidnaps and feeds on people, keeping them locked up in his private larder. When Charlie Brewster tries to rescue a woman Jerry held hostage, Jerry had been toying with them both and had already turned her, letting her die in the sunlight solely to mess with Charlie. He's more than happy to tear the throats out of innocent bystanders and turns Charlie's girlfriend into a vampire in front of a helpless Charlie, and later mocks him as he makes out with her. While Dandridge in the original held a certain elegance, the remake's version is nothing more than a savage, sadistic predator.

[[folder:G - J]]

In order to get the Omega 13, [[ColdBloodedTorture Sarris tortured the former Thermian commander for days]], only killing him when he [[LovesTheSoundOfScreaming "grew tired of the noises" the old commander made]]. In his pursuit of the device, Sarris wiped out the entire Thermian race save for a crew of hundreds, tortured Thermian leader Mathesar in front of lead actor, Jason Nesmith, and prepares to torture Nesmith's LoveInterest, Gwen, when Jason can't answer what the device does. Finding out the truth, Sarris forces Nesmith to tell Mathesar about the show in order to [[HopeCrusher crush Mathesar completely]], tries to have the actors thrown out the airlock, and tries to murder the last remnant of the Thermian race by slowly suffocating them to death precisely. Sarris also shows no empathy for the lives of those under his command, he [[OffWithHisHead decapitated his lieutenant]] for [[DisproportionateRetribution failing to get the ship's shields up in time]] and [[DecapitationPresentation carried his head around on a spike]], and doesn't care that his men on the Thermian ship will be killed in the upcoming core implosion so long as they kill the actors for him. His ship destroyed, Sarris disguises himself as a crewmember and teleports onto their ship, where he personally kills actor and Thermian alike, only failing due to the Omega 13 allowing for time travel. Throughout the movie, Sarris manages to be an [[KnightOfCerebus utterly horrifying villain]] despite being in [[VileVillainSaccharineShow an otherwise funny movie]].
* ''Film/{{Gamer}}'':
** [[BigBad Ken Castle]] is a billionaire technology designer in a dystopian future. He develops an artificial environment called "Society" where users can remote control other people (all of whom [[AndIMustScream have no control over their own body while inside]] and only volunteer because they need the money and feel disgusted by it) to do any depraved thing they want with their avatars short of plain murder. Then he indulges people in even that desire as well when he offers the government a solution to the prison overcrowding by creating a second game called "Slayers", in which prisoners have to fight to the death in an enclosed war zone under the control of more remote players. Any prisoner who can survive 30 rounds will supposedly be freed, but Castle [[ILied reneges on this arrangement]] when the hero Kable is close to winning, and sets him up to be killed. His ultimate goal, revealed late in the film, is his secret extension of the mind control nanotech they use on the "characters" in the games to the general population so he will be in personal control of 100 million people in short time, and eventually make everyone in the world his slave, robbing them of anything even resembling free will. He uses this power to control Kable's body and tries to force him to [[WouldHurtAChild slit his little girl's throat]]. He is utterly [[LackOfEmpathy bereft of empathy]], to the point he sees people only as things and laughs off every one of his minions who die for him.
** [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Hackman]] is an [[ScaryBlackMan enormous inmate]] in Kable's prison who went on a massive killing spree [[AxCrazy just to be locked up and personally enjoy the carnage in Slayers]]. He arranges with Castle to remove the mind control on himself so he has an advantage over the other prisoners and can kill Kable himself. He kills another prisoner for no reason than to show Kable the resulting blood on his hands, and threatens to pay a visit to the two "whores" Kable has on the outside, namely his wife and daughter. Through the rest of the film he just keeps murdering people (especially innocents) left and right, clearly [[PsychoForHire deriving sadistic joy]] from all the crimes he commits with his own hands.
* ''Film/GangsterSquad'': [[KosherNostra Mickey Cohen]] is an utterly psychotic mobster whose brutality terrifies even other hardened mobsters. Cohen opens by having a friendly emissary from the Chicago mob executed by being torn apart between two trucks, before throwing a group who are late in their protection money in their building, locking them inside and burning them with the building. A building he'd had women brought to in order to be hooked on drugs and turned out as prostitutes.

Now able to manipulate any electrical, Karl initiates electrical fires, causes explosions and uses electrical shocks to claim new victims with seemingly no way to escape him.
* ''Film/GhostRider'': In the extended cut, [[NamesToRunAwayFrom Blackheart]] is a [[TheEvilPrince prince of Hell]] and the [[AntiChrist son]] of [[{{Satan}} Mephistopheles]]. [[DrivenbyEnvy Jealous]] of his father's power and angered by the fact that Mephistopheles gave the power of Hellfire to a lowly human instead of him, Blackheart plans to obtain the contract of San Venganza. This contract would grant him the power of a thousand evil souls who made a Main/DealWithTheDevil. Through out the movie, Blackheart [[AxCrazy murders almost every human he comes into contact with]], only sparing those who can serve his plans later. Blackheart ultimately plans to use the power of the contract to create Hell on Earth and devour as many souls and then [[TheStarScream overthrow his father]].
* ''Film/GhostShip'': [[MeaningfulName Ferriman, aka the literal "Ferryman"]] is an infernal accountant working for Hell to collect souls. He was a bastard even before he became a demon, as he only got the job because he lived a gravely immoral life. He impersonates a human to [[TheCorrupter trick people into committing mortal sins]] and kill themselves so he can steal their souls. He goads the crew on the Italian cruise liner the ''Graza'' to butcher everyone on board to [[GoldFever get a crate of gold bars]] that he brought with him from a ship they salvaged. It turns into a complete massacre, with people being attacked all over the ship and cut open, poisoned, and machine gunned to death, including a child being hanged in her room. The instigators turn on each other after killing the passengers, and he kills the last one with a meat hook. He traps the souls on the ship in fear and torment until he can send them all to Hell. He lures multiple salvage crews to the derelict cruise liner to fix the ship, tricks them into staying to get the gold, and then kills them all one by one. Not even his job explains his excessive sadism in killing people to steal their souls, as there's no hint that there are others like him or that it's standard procedure. Worse yet, the end of the film implies he's about to do it all over again.
* ''Film/{{Gladiator}}'': The power-hungry, violent, [[VillainousIncest incestuous]] Emperor Commodus is the heir to the wise Emperor Marcus Aurelius, but when he learns that his father wants to [[GoodRepublicEvilEmpire make Rome a republic again]] and appoint the noble General Maximus as regent instead of him, he [[TheEvilPrince kills Aurelius]], frames Maximus, and orders the death of Maximus (who escapes) as well as Maximus's wife and son (who don't). He casts himself as an [[WellDoneSonGuy unworthy son to a father with high demands]], but his {{Patricide}} and subsequent [[TheCaligula megalomania]] show that his grievances with his father only reflect on [[ItsAllAboutMe his desire to become ultimate ruler]], not to make his father proud. He becomes Emperor, and marginalizes the Senate's authority while keeping the populace in line with food and games. When Maximus reappears in Rome and the possibility of revolution looms he goes completely off the rails. He tries to have Maximus killed in the arena, but this fails. He then lures his enemy into a trap and unfolds the insurrection, killing most of Maximus's sympathizers and planning to execute the rest after publicly killing Maximus himself in a spectacular showdown, which [[DirtyCoward he shifts in his favor by secretly wounding Maximus before the fight]]. His "love" for his sister Lucilla is later revealed to simply be [[BrotherSisterIncest lust]], and when he learns that she is working with Maximus, the "merciful" Commodus demands that the horrified Lucilla [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil provide him with an heir]] so his "blood pure" progeny can [[ThousandYearReign reign as tyrants for a thousand years to come]]. He threatens to kill his own nephew (Lucilla's son) if Lucilla doesn't consent to becoming his personal sex slave, or takes her life to defy him. Even the PraetorianGuard (his personal bodyguard, who are ''paid'' to protect him at all cost) are so disgusted by him by the end that they refuse to aid him when he loses his sword in the final fight.
* ''Film/TheGoodSon'': Henry Evans is the ultimate example of an EnfantTerrible in film. Having a disturbing attraction towards death and the idea of murder, Henry built a philosophy around himself that stated that if people were to rid themselves of their morals, [[ChaoticEvil then they are free to do any evil acts that they wanted to do without such concepts holding them back]]. Prior to the main plot, Henry murdered his own younger brother in the bathtub [[DisproportionateRetribution just because he had happened to be playing with a toy that belonged to him]]. He then goes on to convince his cousin, Mark, into helping him throw a dummy dubbed "Mr. Highway" off of a bridge, resulting in massive car accidents. He also [[KickTheDog shot and killed an innocent dog with a nail gun]] from a distance and he also attempted to drown his sister in a frozen lake when they were skating together. When Henry's mother was beginning to realize that her son was a remorseless [[TheSociopath sociopath]], she decided to send him to a mental institution so that he could get the help that he needed.

Walt initially scares him off, but he continues to harass Thao afterwards and puts out a cigarette in his face. In retaliation for Walt threatening one of his gang members at gunpoint, Spider performs a drive-by shooting on Thao's family and kidnaps his cousin Sue to subject her to a bloody gang rape. When Walt finally confronts them in the climax, he and his gang brutally murder him just for putting his hand in his pocket.

He and his men proceed to murder every one of the Mormons, with Loco smugly adding they'll collect the bounties nice and legally. His actions, in the end narration, are noted to have absolutely horrified society and precipitated the end of Bounty Hunting.
* Michael Myers in the original [[Film/{{Halloween 1978}} Halloween]] films is a cold-blooded SerialKiller with a hatred of teenage sexuality and a fondness for carving knives. After killing his sister at the [[EnfantTerrible age of six]], Michael breaks out of prison as an adult and goes on a killing spree through his hometown of Haddonfield, on his way to kill his [[CainAndAbel surviving sister]], murdering three of her friends before targeting her. He's stopped, but the horror doesn't end there. Michael returns repeatedly, making numerous attempts on Laurie, her [[RevengeByProxy daughter Jaime]], and anybody else who gets in his way. Incapable of feeling empathy, and driven by a loathing of seemingly everybody he encounters, the [[ImplacableMan unstoppable]] and [[SilentAntagonist perpetually silent]] Michael helped to define the SlasherMovie as we know it, and remains one of the most bone-chillingly evil.
* ''Film/HalloweenIIISeasonOfTheWitch'' has [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Conal Cochran]], the CEO of Silver Shamrock Novelties, a company known for its Halloween masks, which it shipped all over the United States. Cochran, had built these masks with a computer chip made from a fragment of Stonehenge.

Cochran is shown demonstrating how these masks work on an innocent family, laughing all the while as they are poisoned and eaten. His plan is to kill thousands of children all over the country, partially to bring back the darker aspects of the Celtic festival Samhain, which he connects to witchcraft, but also just because he considers this mass murder to be a fun joke, the best ever in fact, because it's a joke on the children.

He only gets worse from there, culminating in the hospital sequence where he kills patients for trying to escape the hospital, takes a room hostage, and fires on the SWAT team even as they try to evacuate the babies of the hospital's maternity ward. Johnny's most despicable act is firing his Uzi into a crowd of patients standing between him and Alan, and then killing his [[TheDragon Dragon]] Mad Dog when he blasts the gun out of his hands.

* ''Film/LordOfIllusions'': Nix, known [[IronicNickname as The Puritan]], is the leader of a fanatic cult and begins the movie by kidnapping a little girl to sacrifice for power, displaying a sadistic streak by letting his pet Mandrill baboon attack her. His former apprentice, Philip Swann, thankfully stops him and kills him. A monster while alive, Nix becomes far worse after [[BackFromTheDead his cultists resurrect him]]. Nix immediately kills his cultists out of disgust for their slavish devotion to him, sneering that while they've waited like lambs for him, "I'm not your shepherd." When he tries to lure Swann back to his side, Nix is so disgusted Swann feels love for beings who are "just flesh," that he brutalizes and fatally wounds Swann. Nix reveals his true intent is to [[OmnicidalManiac murder the world]] and show it the terror of the grave.
* ''Film/{{Machete}}'': Mexican drug lord [[BigBad Rogelio Torrez]]. Of all the villains, Torrez is the only one who doesn't get any redeeming qualities, motives, or hints of remorse, and does what he does only to line his own pockets and to satisfy his sadism. He rockets past the MoralEventHorizon in the first five minutes, kidnapping a girl who has info on his drug ring, brainwashing her so she'll turn on Machete when he tries to rescue her, and then blows her brains out for her loyalty. He brings in Machete's wife and chops her head off, and casually notes he also killed his school-age daughter on the way there. He doesn't want to give Machete an honourable death by cutting of his head, so instead he sets the building on fire and leaves him for dead to be burned alive. Later in the film he just chuckles at seeing Booth strangle one of his minions to death in front of a computer screen, and is revealed as the mastermind behind the EvilPlan to expel all the Mexican immigrants from the US, so he can get a monopoly on the drug trade by controlling the border. Even his death scene just manages to make him more disgusting rather than admirable; when Machete impales him he doesn't want to admit he lost and go out in a blaze of glory, so he just drives it in further so it can be said only he himself was able to kill him in the end. Even his female bodyguard walks off in disgust at that point. He used to be Machete's partner in the Federales, so he actually was a good guy at one point before he decided to go dark side of his own will.
* ''Film/TheManFromNowhere'': Jong-Seok, younger brother of drug-dealer Man-Seok, and junior partner in their BigBadDuumvirate. While his [[TheStoic icy older brother]] [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes might care about his well-being]], Jong-Seok cares about [[PsychoForHire nothing but having as good a time as possible.]] He's physically abusive of the women he sleeps with, tortures So-Mi's mother by burning her with a blow-dryer (then kidnaps So-Mi for their organ harvesting operation), tortures her mother's boyfriend by beating him and threatening to burn off his testicles, and sends [[TheDragon Ramrowan]] to sadistically murder their former boss, Mr. Oh. When a little girl involved in their drug operation passes out, Jong-Seok has her dragged off so her organs can be harvested and sold. A PsychopathicManchild at its worst, Jong-Seok uses his last moments alive to brag to Tae-Sik about how he has failed So-Mi as badly as the Seok brothers have.
* ''Film/ManOfTaiChi'': [[BigBad Donaka Mark]], a [[CorruptCorporateExecutive corrupt businessman]] and violence aficionado who runs an underground fight ring, and sells his audience, not on the fights themselves, but on the chance to watch a good person cross the MoralEventHorizon by killing. When Chi-Tak, one of his fighters, refuses to kill his defeated opponent, Donaka enters the ring and personally breaks the neck of the loser. He then stabs Chi-Tak to death in the locker room, as his refusal to murder makes him a rat in Donaka's eyes. Discovering Tai Chi specialist Tiger Chen, Donaka convinces the government to sell off his master's temple, to make Tiger desperate for money; he then offers him a job in his fight ring. Placing cameras throughout Tiger's home, Donaka gives his audience the opportunity to watch Tiger's mental disintegration as the fights take their toll on his psyche. When Tiger, driven to the brink, still refuses to kill mercenary Uri Romanoff, Donaka executes Uri. He sends Tiger into another fight, with an Indonesian fighter; when Tiger tries to back out, Donaka gives the Indonesian the kill order. He also sends assassins after Detective Sung Jinshi, when she closes in on his ring. Ultimately found out by the police, Donaka flees and leaves his men in the lurch, only to reappear at Tiger's temple and force him into a Duel to the Death, declaring, "You owe me a life!" [[spoiler: When Tiger is forced to kill him, Donaka displays only a sense of satisfaction at having made Tiger a murderer.]]
* ''Film/ManosTheHandsOfFate'': TheMaster is an undead occultist worshiping the [[JerkassGods evil god Manos]] who happily performs {{human sacrifice}}s for his deity. He keeps a harem of wives which he [[DomesticAbuser disposes of as he sees fit]], burning one alive after growing bored of her to appease Manos. When a small family is lured into his keep by his servant Torgo, he first kills the family dog. He tries to kill Torgo for touching his wives in their sleep, [[{{Fingore}} hacking off Torgo's hand]] in the process. He does this not because it disgusts him, but because he considers them his alone. Then he forces both Michael's wife Margaret and his little daughter Debbie to become his new brides. He finally turns Michael himself into another brainless servant like Torgo before him to lure in more victims.
* ''Film/MarathonMan'': Dr. Christian Szell is a psychotic [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazi]] [[DepravedDentist dentist]] who loves his torture methods, as it is shown in the infamous "''Is it safe?''" sequence where he tortures Babe Levy with his dental instruments, digging into one of his cavities. He also has the particular skill to kill his victims with a retractable blade, making them die slowly and painfully.
* ''Film/TheMaskOfZorro'': Captain Harrison Love, the PsychoForHire [[TheDragon Dragon]]. Keeps the dismembered body parts of Alejandro's brother pickled in alcohol, which he drinks "based on an Incan custom". When he learns Zorro has the means to expose Don Rafael's plan (buying California with stolen gold), he calmly suggests destroying the mine to hide evidence of the theft...with the slaves who did the mining still inside, "to destroy ''all'' the evidence".
* ''Film/MenInBlack3'': Boris the Animal is by far the most murderous and sadistic villain to appear in the movies. He is introduced being freed from prison by [[MonsterFangirl his girlfriend]], whom he leaves to die when she is blown out into space, as well as another prisoner whom he promised to take with him. He travels back in time to eliminate K as personal revenge for destroying his arm when he was captured, causing a present day invasion by his race of {{Planet Loot|ers}}ing Boglodites to consume everyone on Earth. He kills a number of targets in the past, only refrains from killing ''his past self'' because he would be erased from time, and [[spoiler:at the end murders J's father out of spite for being thwarted by K.]]
* ''Film/{{Mindhunters}}'': The SerialKiller plays cat and mouse games with his victims by infiltrating a group of FBI profilers during a field mission to a deserted island with a makeshift town used as a training ground by the bureau, where they must solve a case involving a fictional serial killer called "the Puppeteer" organized by their supervisor. He sets the island up with an array of booby traps and puzzles to kill them while watching from within the group to turn them against each other and [[HuntingTheMostDangerousGame give himself good sport]]. His more cruel murders include a victim being slowly killed with liquid nitrogen from the feet up, and another one burned to death from inside through acid-laced cigarettes. He kidnaps the supervisor (who had been monitoring the group in secret) to an abandoned warehouse on the other side of the island where he proceeds to torture him for days before [[DeadGuyPuppet preparing his corpse and hanging it up for the trainees as a sort of perverse puppet.]] It's only after his identity as [[spoiler:Sarah's best friend Lucas]] is revealed that the true level of his manipulation becomes apparent, and he frankly admits he started his string of murders by [[SelfMadeOrphan killing his parents as a child]] and now simply enjoys a good hunt for new and more intelligent victims.
* ''Film/MissionImpossible'': The actions of Owen Davian in the third film (selling weapons to terrorists, killing agents by bombs implanted in their heads, [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown brutally beating up]] the defenseless hero in front of his equally defenseless wife) are bad enough, but what really sets him apart are his complete lack of any redeeming qualities and incapability of showing any other emotion than annoyance, anger, and a creepy combination of DullSurprise and sadistic glee . Hearing him count to ten while holding Ethan's wife hostage execution-style is pants-shitting scary.
-->''"What I did to your friend was....fun. It was fun."''
* ''Mr. Accident'': Duxton Chevalier is a surprisingly [[KnightOfCerebus serious and evil villain for a comedy film]]. He forces his brother to hand over his egg company by threatening to chop the leg off of his beloved dog and gets more sinister as the film goes on. It's revealed that he ''murdered'' his own brother after already getting the company, [[StuffedInTheFridge stuffing his body in a refrigerator]] and sending it through a recycling machine. At least viewers can ''assume'' [[FridgeHorror the brother is already dead]]. He then spikes the chicken feed with nicotine in order to produce nicotine-spiked eggs to get people addicted to the eggs so he can bring in the cash. He does love his girlfriend, Sunday - in the way of the homicidal StalkerWithACrush -kind. As a result, when he discovers Roger is her new boyfriend, he stuffs him and his best friend in another refrigerator and tries to repeat what he did with his brother with them ''still alive''. He then moves on to try to murder Sunday with an ax (which, frighteningly, he has on him at all times) after her rebuking his affections one last time. After Roger confronts him on his plan, asking if baby food is next, Duxton reacts by saying: "We're working on it." In the end, Duxton gets his comeuppance when Roger sends him falling to a messy DisneyVillainDeath.
* ''Film/TheMusketeer'': Febre as played by Tim Roth is a sadistic BloodKnight who lives for combat and destruction. [[YouKilledMyFather Murdering D'Artagnan's parents in front of him as a child]], Febre becomes the [[TheDragon pet psychopath]] of Cardinal Richeliu and carries out his unsavory work. Febre murders many who cross his path and incites a riot to create political tension. Febre blackmails the queen by threatening a child's life to lure her and the Duke of Buckingham together to murder them both and frame the King of France. Febre then reveals his true goal: to start a giant war between France, Spain and Britain simply for the laughs of all the lives that will be lost. When Richelieu [[EvenEvilHasStandards calls him mad for this]], Febre remarks this is the third time he's been called insane in a night. [[InsultBackfire "It must be so!"]]
* ''Film/{{Nightbreed}}'': The human Dr. Philip Decker is far more evil than any of the actual monsters in the film are. He masquerades as a [[PsychoPsychologist renowned psychologist]], but is actually a [[MalevolentMaskedMen masked]], [[KnifeNut bayonet-wielding]] serial killer who butchers families along with their children, women he comes across, and anyone else he can get his hands on. He sees himself as a Grim Reaper and gives himself the mission to stop 'breeders' from spreading their "filth" generation after generation. Captain Eigerman's comments towards Aaron Boone suggest that Decker is a [[ImAHumanitarian cannibal]] as well. After his psychiatric patient, Aaron, tells Decker his dreams of the Nightbreed civilization he frames Aaron for his crimes and gets Aaron killed by the police. When he learns of Aaron's resurrection and the existence of the Tribes of the Moon, he tries to exterminate the civilization of DarkIsNotEvil magical creatures as the ultimate extension of his mission to cleanse the world. A depraved and hypocritical KnightTemplar with an [[MisanthropeSupreme utter contempt for humans]] and Nightbreed alike, he earns the fear and disgust of everyone who's unlucky enough to see his true face.
* ''Film/{{Nighthawks}}'': Heymar Reinhardt, alias "Wulfgar," is a terrorist who manipulates everyone around him and kills the people who help him. Even his employers don't like him, as evidenced by one of them [[EvenEvilHasStandards refusing to pay him because several children were killed by his last attack at the beginning of the movie]]. He doesn't care who his actions injure or kill, even if the victims are children. He takes a frail old woman hostage at a subway, and before that, he killed the flight attendant he was staying with after she looked in his briefcase, calmly telling her that everything was okay, before killing her offscreen. Later on, he takes more hostages, including an eight-month-old infant. The only reason that he lets the infant live is because he knows that doing so would make him seem more employable to future or potential terrorist organizations, provided he can escape his current predicament alive.
* ''Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet'': Freddy Krueger, known as the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast "Bastard-Son-Of-A-Hundred-Maniacs"]], is the dream-invading, SerialKiller antagonist of the franchise who was a [[WouldHurtAChild child killer]] before he became a ghost. He kept a scrapbook of the "Have you seen this..." pictures of his child victims [[{{Squick}} and licked them]]. After his death he makes a deal with demonic forces to become, in his own words, "the stuff nightmares are made of." He uses his newfound powers to find increasingly creative ways to torture and murder his dozens of victims for his own amusement by using their primal fears against them, all the while cracking sick jokes. Then he harvests the teenagers' souls and keeps them in a perpetual AndIMustScream state inside his body to drain them for energy. Even in the utterly {{Narm}}-filled ''Film/FreddysDeadTheFinalNightmare,'' he had his moments, like when he taunts Tracy by appearing as her [[ParentalIncest sexually abusive father]] ("Give daddy some honey...no one has to know..."). Freddy is one of the few SlasherMovie killers with a distinct and talkative personality, and has always simply been a sadistic monster that extends his victims' suffering [[ForTheEvulz for its own sake]].
* ''Film/TheNightOfTheHunter'': Harry Powell, a serial killer and self-appointed preacher, gets out of prison and marries a bank robber's widow, believing her children know where the stolen money is hidden. When she overhears him asking the children about the money, he slits her throat as she lies in bed. Then, to finally get the children to tell him where the money is, he [[WouldHurtAChild threatens]] to [[{{Fingore}} cut off the son's fingers]], one by one, in front of the very young daughter.
* ''Literature/NoCountryForOldMen'': [[ProfessionalKiller Anton]] [[PsychoForHire Chigurh]] strangles a cop to death with cuffs; shoots both his employers in cold blood because he wanted the money they were chasing after; shoots a crying, surrendering man hiding in a shower; and has absolutely no qualms about killing innocent people, including a random old man for his car and a motorist that did nothing except pick up the main character. In his most senselessly cruel act, he murders the dead protagonist's wife only to fulfill a pointless promise to him. Some consider Carla Jean's refusal to accept his offer as a SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome, calling out his bullshit of giving his victims a 50-50 chance. Even ''knowing'' Anton Chigurh puts you in mortal danger. Like one line by Carson Wells points out: "Even if you gave him the money, he would still kill you just for...inconveniencing him." The worst thing about him is how he subjects his victims to a bizarre form of MindRape and actually convinces them to accept their death. It's easy to see why his partner-in-crime Carson Wells compares him to [[TheBlackDeath the Bubonic Plague]]. He faces no repercussions, which goes chillingly well along with the nature of his character: an unstoppable force of nature personified in human flesh. He does not enjoy these acts; he is just an evil psychopath with utterly no regard for the lives of anyone.
* ''Film/{{Nosferatu}}'': [[LooksLikeOrlok Count Orlok]], the eponymous "Nosferatu," one of the earliest examples of vampires in cinema in the film and one of the most terrifying. When Thomas Hutter arrives in the Transylvanian Carpathian Mountains, the locals speak Orlok's name in hushed whispers and don't dare to venture out at dark. Upon meeting Orlok, Hutter is attacked and the count tries to feed from him fatally before being repulsed. Hutter witnesses Orlok loading up several coffins to be transported across the sea, and Orlok later kills the crew of the schooner transporting him. The other coffins are revealed to also contain plague-bearing rats, and Orlok's arrival spreads a deathly plague all over Europe. He uses the plague as cover to feed on the people of Hutter's home village of Wisborg without suspicion before Hutter's innocent wife Ellen catches his eye. Orlok attacks Ellen, draining her to death in her HeroicSacrifice to keep him distracted before the sun rises to destroy him. Orlok had spawned a legion of imitators and while later vampires were portrayed as sophisticated, urbane and charming, Orlok is nothing more than a cunning, evil and ravenous beast that can barely pass as a human being.
* ''Film/{{Novecento}}'': Atilla is a sadistic fascist who lords over the workers on his estate, killing and imprisoning them as he wishes. Atilla massacres peasants to confiscate their lands, murders a wealthy widow to steal her estate and in his most vile action, rapes and then murders a little boy who was the son of one of his most fervent supporters.

[[folder:O - Q]]
* ''Film/TheOmen'' series has TheAntichrist himself, [[VillainProtagonist Damien Thorn]]. What's interesting about him is that at first, [[AntiAntiChrist he was horrified when he discovered that he was the Antichrist]], but as he grew older, he came to terms with his destiny, and he set out to do [[{{Satan}} his father's]] wishes. In the second film, Damien revealed to his cousin Mark that he was the son of the Devil, and asked him [[WeCanRuleTogether to join him in his attempt at world conquest]]. When Mark refused his offer, Damien murders him by introducing an aneurysm into his brain and later set his aunt and uncle on fire at the end of the film. In the final Omen film, ''The Final Conflict'', we are introduced to a grown up Damien, and we also discover that he became the Ambassador of Great Britain. At this point in his life, he had fully come to terms with his role as the Antichrist, and any redeeming factors that he had in the previous films had vanished at this point in time. When he realized that the Second Coming was on the horizon, he makes a decree that every baby boy that was born on March 24, 1982, [[NiceJobBreakingItHerod be sentenced to death]] as a means of stopping the Christ child from being reborn. Along the way, he gets romantically involved with a female journalist, whom he then rapes, and he also manipulated her son into following him. He later uses said son as a [[HumanShield human shield]] when Father De Carlo attempted to use the Dagger of Megiddo against him. Damien then tries to strangle the priest to death. Damien also manipulated Barbara into killing her husband with an iron, and she unintentionally helps Damien in his attempt to kill the Christ child by killing her baby.
* ''Film/OnceUponATimeInTheWest'': [[TheDragon Frank]] (Creator/HenryFonda) is a former bandit turned enforcer for the railroad company. During the film's opening sequence, he and his men gun down the [=McBain=] family, with Frank shooting down the last survivor, [[WouldHurtAChild a small boy]], himself, before nailing a duster to the door so that local {{bandito}} chief [[AntiHero Cheyenne]] will be blamed for the crime. When he reports to his boss, [[EvilCripple Mr. Morton]], [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain Morton]] says that he only wanted the [=McBain=]s scared. Frank's response? "[[PsychoForHire People scare better when they're dying]]." When Morton tries to cut a deal with [=McBain=]'s newly arrived widow (ex-HookerWithAHeartOfGold Jill), [[DragonInChief Frank]] sabotages the plan, takes Jill hostage, [[RapeAsDrama has his way with her]], and forces her to sell her land at an auction, positioning his own men there to intimidate the bidders. The arrival of Harmonica, the film's protagonist, ruins this plan, and sets the stage for TheReveal of Frank's [[MoralEventHorizon worst crime]]. When Harmonica was a boy, Frank made his older brother stand on his shoulders, and put a noose around the brother's neck. When Harmonica collapsed from exhaustion, his brother was hanged. To add an appropriately sadistic touch, Frank placed a harmonica between the younger brother's lips and instructed him to "[[KickTheDog play your ever lovin' brother a tune]]." No reason is ever given for his actions, and Frank has ultimately gone down in film history as one of the most vicious villains of his era.
* ''Literature/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest'': While initially appearing as a caring figure, [[BattleaxeNurse Nurse Ratched]] is anything but. She would remorselessly and cruelly manipulate anyone to keep her control over the virtually harmless mental patients all while [[VillainWithGoodPublicity maintaining her motherly image to her superiors and the outsiders to the mental institution]]. She then [[MoralEventHorizon goes over the line]] when she convinces Billy that she'll tell his mother all about his "bad behavior," knowing full well what effect that would have on his mental health; he commits suicide. Nurse Ratched was also one of the employees who gave [=McMurphy=], the film's protagonist, a lobotomy; [[MercyKill Bromden later put him out of his misery]]. Ratched was so monstrously evil that Louise Fletcher (the actress who played her) herself was reported as being uncomfortable with watching the film because of her character's presence in it.
* ''Out Of the Furnace'': Harlan Degroat is a violent [[CorruptHick backwoods meth boss]] who begins the film at a drive-in movie with a date. When she thinks him having food poisoning is funny, Degroat chokes her and beats her before pummeling a good Samaritan coming to her aid nearly to death. Later, when Degroat is offered the chance to make money by a man who owes him named Petty via Petty's fighter buddy Rodney taking a dive in a bare-knuckle fight so Degroat can take the winnings, Degroat ambushes them and has them both killed simply out of spite, pride and because Rodney did a bit too well before he took the dive. When Rodney's brother Russ tries to trap Degroat later, Degroat executes the unarmed, helpless bartender in the area before trying to flee.
* ''Film/PanicRoom'': Raoul is one of three robbers who invade the new home of a mother and her daughter, from the start he proves himself far more cruel and murderous than both his comrades. He has no reservations about killing people or even children to get the bearer bonds stored in the safe room. He turns up the gas so Meg and Sarah almost suffocate and doesn't give a crap that his associate Junior almost burned to death as a result. When Junior tries to cut his losses and leave Raoul shoots him in the head, then shoots the corpse again just out of spite. He threatens to kill Burnham too if he doesn't go through with the job. He beats Meg's ex-husband Stephen almost to death to get them to leave the safe room, and then intends to kill her daughter if she tells the police. After they beat Raoul up it gets personal, as he prefers to murder the whole family rather than escape with the money.
* ''Film/PansLabyrinth'': Captain Vidal is far more terrifying than the fantastical monsters in the same work. Vidal first shows his nastiness when two poachers, a father and son, are brought to him in the dead of night, his men suspecting them of being rebels against the regime. He beats the younger man's face in with a bottle simply for defending his father against Vidal's accusations before shooting them both with a vague air of boredom and pleasure. When the men are proven not to be rebels, Vidal shows no remorse, only belittling his men to be more careful next time. At one point, Vidal captures a rebel with a horrible stutter and cheerfully shows the man his [[TortureTechnician torture instruments]] before offering to let him go if he can clearly count to three. He fails. Vidal is married to the young heroine's mother solely so she'll bear him an heir, and shows no concern over the possible death of his wife in childbirth. When the doctor attending her gives the aforementioned stuttering torture victim a mercy kill, Vidal coldly guns him down. At the film's end, [[spoiler: Vidal's stepdaughter Ofelia tries to rescue her baby brother, but Vidal catches her and [[WouldHurtAChild promptly shoots her fatally]].]] It's no accident that Vidal's place at the head of the table in the dinner scene parallels that of the Pale Man; each qualifies as a HumanoidAbomination in his own way, one literal, one figurative.
* ''Film/{{Passenger 57}}'': Charles Rane is a TerroristWithoutACause who enjoys causing mayhem ForTheEvulz. When being transported aboard a plane, Rane murders the agents guarding him to hijack the jet. When the hero, Cutter, tries to stop him, Rane takes a hostage, coaxing the man's name and the fact [[IHaveAFamily he has a daughter from him]]. Rane calmly informs Cutter: "This is Douglas.

Rane later tries to have all of the civilian hostages executed when the government won't comply with his demands.

He proceeds to take one messenger, TheHero Benjamin Martin's eldest son Gabriel, to be hanged, Gabriel's brother intervenes, for which Tavington callously guns him down and sneers "stupid boy" at his shell-shocked father. Tavington's savagery earns him furious rebukes from General Cornwallis, until Tavington convinces the general to allow him free reign, bargaining himself to be a new landowner as his methods will render him persona non grata back in Britain. Tavington corrals a town full of innocent people in a church when none of them will talk about the location of Martin's forces. When he gets his answer, Tavington has the town locked in the church and then [[MoralEventHorizon has it set afire]], adding the forgiveness of the people is between them and God. Tavington later kills Gabriel in combat and when facing Benjamin in a DuelToTheDeath mocks him for being a lesser man.

When Alice discovers the truth and rejects Mommy as her mother, Mommy tries to kill her, screaming at her to burn in hell.

The Tall Man roams from town to town, leaving death and destruction in his wake for the purpose of creating corpses that he can use in his undead army for eventual world domination. The Tall Man seems to fully understand human feeling as he murders the innocent family of Reggie Bannister [[ForTheEvulz for no real reason, solely to hurt him]]. He tortures the young hero Mike and killed his older brother, Jody, as well as Mike's girlfriend while transforming the former into one of his magic spheres and the latter into one of his undead servants. Sadistic, relentless and brutal, the Tall Man has remained an icon in horror for his monstrosity.

** Sgt. Bob Barnes, in one scene, believing that some villagers are aiding Viet Cong soldiers, he shoots a defiant woman (the village chief's wife) in the head. When the murdered woman's daughter cries out, Barnes takes the child at gunpoint, threatening to shoot her next if the villagers do not reveal the whereabouts of the Viet Cong. Worse yet, during a firefight with the enemy, he murders Sgt. Elias, the only one with the balls to do something about his atrocious acts all of the soldiers have witnessed.
** Bunny is a sadistic little psychopath who beats a crippled Vietnamese boy to death just for fun, and does the same to the victim's elderly mother, before leading the gang-rape of a young girl in the bushes (which is interrupted by Chris).
---> '''Bunny''': You know, Junior, some of the things we done, man, I don't feel like we done something wrong.
* ''Film/PlunkettAndMacleane'': Thief Taker General Chance is a sadistic, brutal thug of a law enforcement officer. Chance has a liking for a good EyeScream and gouges out the eyes of those he captures, just to amuse himself before he causes them more pain. Chance kills a wealthy man to get to the man's daughter and tries to force himself on her before deciding it isn't painful enough for her and resolves to wait until after he has her love interest hanged.
* ''Film/{{Pompeii}}'': [[CorruptPolitician Roman Senator Corvus]] is a [[SmugSnake sneering]], arrogant [[AristocratsAreEvil aristocrat]] who feels he can do whatever he wants. Starting the film with a brutal slaughter of a Celtic tribe, Corvus murders the mother of the young hero Milo, though the boy escapes and later becomes a slave at the city of Pompeii. When Milo becomes attached to the Roman noblewoman Cassia, whom Corvus lusts for, Corvus promises to spare him for Cassia's sake, but has him and another Gladiator named Atticus chained in the Arena to be slaughtered by Roman soldiers to recreate Corvus's victory over the Celts. When Cassia protests, Corvus tells her he simply wants her as a possession that he can break and that she will "stay broken," to beg and crawl as he demands. Corvus blackmails her family into agreeing to the marriage by threatening to accuse them of treason and murders Cassia's father when Mt. Vesuvius erupts. To get to safety, Corvus kills innocent civilians and even abandons his loyal [[TheDragon dragon]] Proculus while attempting to abduct Cassia and escape.
* ''Film/ThePoughkeepsieTapes'': The Water Street Butcher, AKA “Ed,” who is one of the most prolific and brutal {{Serial Killer}}s in the history of film. He is given no backstory, but as far as the police could tell, one day he just started killing people. Taking great pride in his murders, the Butcher had logged each one of them on camera, and by the time the police finally found out where he lived, he had already made 800 tapes showing the killings, with several thousand hours of film chronicling his sadism. Watching the tapes, the police soon learned that nothing appeared to be off-limits for the Butcher; he proves very early in the film that he WouldHurtAChild when he knocks an 8-year-old girl unconscious before abducting and killing her, and is implied to have raped her too. His sadistic streak continues when, posing as a hitchhiker, he kills a man who picks him up, drugs his wife, cuts the man's head off, gives the woman a C-section, puts the man's head inside of her womb, sews her back up, then wakes her up to film her reaction. Possibly the worst thing he does is to a young woman named Cheryl; he kidnaps her and keeps her as his prisoner and slave, physically and mentally tormenting her non-stop for his own amusement, and forcing her to commit some of the murders. When her mother gives a heart-felt plea for him to return Cheryl, he taunts her right to her face. Around this time, he decides to take up necrophilia. At one point, an innocent retired police officer is put to death under strong evidence that he was the Butcher, but it turns out that the real killer fabricated the evidence. He did it not to get away scot-free, but just to get the police to kill one of their own. Eventually, though the killer got away, Cheryl is found, a full 8-years after her original abduction, and is so broken that she can’t interact with the world around her. She is convinced that her “master” will one day come back for her, and kills herself soon after. Then the Butcher digs up her body and runs off with it. While the crimes listed are shown in the most detail, the killer is also shown committing many other murders on the tapes throughout the film. The Butcher appears to only kill for his own amusement and sadistic pleasure, and sees no reason to ever stop.
* ''Film/TheProfessional'': [[RabidCop Detective]] Norman [[AxCrazy Stansfield]] is a [[DirtyCop DEA Agent]] who takes advantage of his position to terrorize, extort and kill who he wants.

* ''Film/{{Rampage}}'': [[VillainProtagonist Bill Williamson]] takes sadistic pleasure in shooting up his small town. He offers some justification by speaking about overpopulation, and how we should kill people to help curb the consumption of resources, but his attitude toward his victims shows that this is merely a shallow pretext.

After he is finished, he murders his supposed best friend and frames him for the rampage, while he takes the thousands of dollars he stole during his attack and skips town with the intention of funding more rampages.
* ''Film/RedEye'': Jackson Rippner is an unscrupulous contractor [[PsychoForHire hiring himself out]] to terrorist networks to assist in toppling governments and [[ProfessionalKiller high-profile assassinations]]. He uses [[ManipulativeBastard his skills of manipulation]] instead of weapons because he's much better at it.

He needs Lisa, a Miami hotel manager, to change the official's room on her authority to make the kills possible. He stalks Lisa for weeks to learn everything about her, and then arranges to be on the same red eye flight with her and gain her confidence initially.

* ''Film/ReservoirDogs'': The psychopathic Mr. Blonde is hinted to be unequivocally callous throughout the first half of the movie, even though he seems calmer and more clear-headed than his partners-in-crime, who seem wary of him. Before the first scene, he has turned a simple robbery into a massacre and it's told in a flashback he had a history of raping "punks" in prison. Right before Mr. Blonde's infamous torture of the cop, we feel positively uneasy when the hardened criminal Mr. White dreads leaving the cop alone with him, which is completely justified, as the top page quote proves.

* ''Franchise/RoboCop'':
** ''Film/RoboCop1987'':
*** Clarence Boddicker has a blood-soaked criminal career. It's more play than work for him and his sadistically joyful gang of friends.

There are moments where he makes wisecracks like an evil version of VideoGame/DukeNukem, but these are usually followed by displays of brutality. For example, his most famous line among the ''[=RoboCop=]'' fandom comes when he breaks into a man's house to find him enjoying the company of several women, to which he comments, "Bitches, leave." He then proceeds to shoot the man in both knees, leave a live HE grenade next to him and calmly walks out.

** ''Film/RoboCop3'': [=McDagget=] killed Lewis without any reason. He convinces the public that the Rehabs give the people of Old Detroit new houses (actually putting them in death camps) and that [=RoboCop=] is a criminal.

* ''Film/RobRoy'': Archibald "Archie" Cunningham is a seemingly harmless, foppish dandy with a penchant for gambling and a desire to make his way in the world; [[BaitTheDog underneath that is a cunning, heartless and sadistic man]] stopping at nothing to feed his greed and vanity. Archibald demonstrates his nastier side [[NotSoHarmlessVillain proving his incredible sword talents]] and toying with his opponent throughout the fight. Archibald solves his money trouble by ambushing and murdering the man the honorable chief Rob Roy of the [=MacGregor=] Clan sent to deliver a sizable amount of money to Cunningham's patron, the Marquise of Montrose, stealing the money and framing Rob as a thief. Archibald leads an attack on Rob's home, slaughtering his friends, and brutally raping his wife, later commenting she was "far sweeter forced than most women are willing."

* ''Film/TheRock'': [[CoDragons Captains Frye and Darrow]] try to extort money by threatening San Francisco with DeadlyGas. While [[BigBad their superior]] AntiVillain [[WellIntentionedExtremist General Hummel]] wants to distribute the money to families of soldiers whose deaths went unrecognized and without compensation, they only [[{{Greed}} want it for themselves]]. When it becomes apparent Hummel is bluffing, they act swift to remove Hummel from command and eventually kill him while proceeding with the attack. Even when it becomes apparent they've lost, Frye and Darrow try to send a rocket at the city armed with poison gas to kill every civilian they possibly can and attempt to kill the 81 tourists they have locked in Alcatraz to ensure a lack of witnesses.

* From the live-action version of ''Film/RurouniKenshin'':
** Kanryu Takeda likes to pass himself off as a successful businessman and an example of what the Japanese can accomplish in the new era of the Meiji. However, below that he is a oppressive drug lord who takes glee in finding, then murdering, police informants and putting them in the open so people could find. He also directly murders through Jin-E a department of the police while chasing after [[DamselInDistress Megumi]] [[TheMedic Takani]] who he had forced to make his brand new opium. To test the new opium as well he kidnapped users off the street, locked them in his secret room in his office, and saw how far they degraded while under his new drug, all with a smile on his face. However his worst act is when he learns Megumi is taking shelter in the Kamiya Dojo and after Kenshin refused to be bought by him: he poisons a district all around the Kamiya Dojo. If it weren't for Megumi, there'd be hundreds, if not thousands of deaths directly on his hands.
** Jin-E Udo seems like a normal PsychoForHire, but he doesn't murder and kill for profit. He just likes to kill. When he pulled himself out of the mountain of corpses he accumulated in the Battle of Toba Fushimi, he took up Kenshin's killing sword as his own. For ten years, he's committed murders in Kenshin's name-calling himself Hitokiri Battosai to strike fear into people. When he storms the police department on the trail of Megumi Takani, he could have easily just evaded the officers. He didn't; he went and purposely started a horrific attack on the station and left a gory tapestry of death, even messing with one officer with his 'Shino Ippo' to force him to stand still as Jin-E [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impaled him slowly to savor it]]. In the last act of the film, he kidnapped Kaoru while Kenshin was saving Megumi from Kanryu. When Kenshin showed up, he first ''kicked'' Kaoru down a stone staircase to make sure she'd hit every step just to piss Kenshin off, and then using the Shino Ippo, he paralyzed her lungs. Again, just to piss Kenshin off. When Kaoru broke through it with her own spirit and after Kenshin had shattered his elbow, Jin-E has the last laugh by stabbing himself just to spite Kenshin and spit on his ThouShallNotKill code.
* ''Satan's Little Helper'': This [[SlidingScaleOfComedyAndHorror horror-comedy's]] [[NoNameGiven unnamed]], [[MalevolentMaskedMen masked]], [[SilentAntagonist silent]] killer dressed up as {{Satan}}, unlike most silent horror villains, has a clear personality, which he shows by communicating through various gestures and body language. "Satan" manipulates a boy named Dougie into aiding him in a killing spree, with Dougie thinking it's all make believe. Over the course of the film, he kills many people in creative and sadistic ways, even burning down an entire police station and poisoning the drinks at a Halloween party, all of this seemingly ForTheEvulz. At the end, he tricks Dougie’s sister Jenna and her mother into killing Jenna’s boyfriend Alex, who he had knocked out and placed in his costume.
* ''Savage Messiah'', a Canadian film, portrays Roch "Moses" Thériault as an utter sociopath who nevertheless has a harem of wives and children all begging to him. The DissonantSerenity when he casually dismembers one of his wives is eerie. Roch abuses all the members of his cult in horrific ways (AbusiveParents doesn't even begin to define it) and yet gets away with it because [[ManipulativeBastard he is just that manipulative]]. ''And'' he convinces the third-party researchers that come to view his cult that he's innocent.
* ''Film/{{Saw}}'': Detective Mark Hoffman is Jigsaw's second apprentice and surpasses both his WellIntentionedExtremist mentor and AxCrazy BrokenBird alumnus Amanda in evil how the lines he is willing to cross. Unlike Jigsaw's traps, which tended to give a chance for survival, Hoffman places his victims into traps simply to kill them to satisfy his own sadism and cruelty. He frames Agent Peter Strahm for his crimes and then arranges his horrible death by being crushed by compacting walls. To cover his tracks, Hoffman begins murdering innocent people and then goes on a rampage in the police station, killing every officer he finds before placing his rival and Jigsaw's wife Jill in a trap to kill her horribly.
* ''Film/ScannersIITheNewOrder'': [[TheDragon Peter Drak]] is one of the psychic "scanners" who is captured and enlisted by the DirtyCop Commander Forrester in the opening. He's a psychopath who just wants his drug fix and [[PsychoForHire enjoys killing people]].

He kills the police chief by [[PsychicAssistedSuicide compelling him]] to eat his own gun, kills the hero David's elderly mother [[ForTheEvulz just because]] and makes sure the sheriff's office hears him shooting her over the phone, needlessly kills Forrester's partner Gelson while the guy is mind-controlled by David by [[YourHeadAsplode blowing Gelson's head up]] and cackling with glee afterwards, and repeatedly tries to devour the hero's mind not out of any loyalty to his pusher but for pleasure. He doesn't even seem bothered that Forrester would throw him aside when he outlives his usefulness, as he just enjoys the power rush of mutilating and murdering people with his mind more.
* ''Film/{{Scarface}}'': [[BigBad Alejandro Sosa]] (also in [[VideoGame/ScarfaceTheWorldIsYours the game]]) demonstrates his monstrosity by ordering the killing of a man along with his wife and children, just so he wouldn't implicate him and his friends on national TV. Tony Montana, for all the drugs and killings he's involved in, [[EvenEvilHasStandards absolutely refuses to hurt innocents]] and blows the brains out of Sosa's assassin for trying to blow them up. Unfortunately for Tony, Sosa is not happy and Tony is killed in a firefight with Sosa's men during the movie's climax.
* ''Film/SchindlersList'': Amon Goeth is the AxCrazy Nazi Lieutenant in charge of the liquidation of the Krakow Jewish ghetto and is the overseer of the Plaszow concentration camp. Goeth's true nature is first exposed when he encounters a Jewish forewoman protesting that the foundation of the structure in the camp they're building is unsound, and this will lead to the building's eventual collapse. Goeth's response is for her to be killed in front of the other workers. [[KickTheDog He then orders his men to follow the dead woman's instructions anyway]]. This is merely the first instance in a long line of pointless and unpredictable violence from Goeth. Some of his most infamous crimes are shooting prisoners with a sniper rifle for sport, personally killing twenty-five men in a rage after one man from their barracks managed to escape from his work detail, and laughing at crying parents as he sends away trainloads of their children to be gassed. Every time a possible flicker of humanity is exposed in Goeth, it is quickly subverted then extinguished. When Oskar Schindler tries to convince Goeth that true power is mercy, Goeth briefly tries out being merciful, even sparing the life of a Jewish boy who was unable to clean the stains in Goeth's bathtub. Then, on a whim, he decides to kill the boy anyway. When he finds himself attracted to his Jewish maid, Helen, he attempts to clumsily come on to her, only to eventually blame her for his own sexual feelings and savagely beat her afterwards. Following the events of the film, the viewer gets an impression that Goeth is a pure sociopath driven only by his erratic whims. Ultimately Goeth's only able to ape the basic mannerisms of a human being and finds himself [[EvilCannotComprehendGood unable to understand basic compassion and human decency]] when confronted with it.

** [[spoiler:Sidney's cousin Jill Roberts]], Ghostface in the fourth film, is a deranged copycat killer who wipes out her own friends in a twisted attempt to become Sidney and hijack her fame and is easily the most AxCrazy of the Ghostfaces so far. She manipulates her lovestruck friend [[spoiler:Charlie]] into helping her, and [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness then kills him when he's no longer of use to her]] so she can be the sole survivor and the center of attention. She even has her own mother killed simply to better emulate Sidney's life with a dead mother. She kills [[spoiler:her boyfriend Trevor]] to take the blame for the massacre, and then tries to kill Sidney to complete her status as the new "valiant Ghostface survivor". When she realizes that Sidney survived after they've both been taken to the hospital, she goes on a final murder spree in a last attempt to secure her fame.

Even in his last, twisted moments on Earth at the hands of the protagonist, he revels in the violence surrounding him.

However, it's with his final murder that Doe proves just how completely hypocritical he really is when he murders a woman completely innocent of any sin, Detective Mills's wife. Feeling envious of Mills's "normal" life, Doe decapitated his wife then arranged for her head to be delivered to Mills outside of the city. Goading Mills with his crime and revealing that she was pregnant, Doe succeeded in getting Mills to murder him in revenge, making Mills the embodiment of Wrath and leading to Mills's arrest and the ruination of his life.

* ''Film/{{Wishmaster}}'': The first Djinn. We only see three members of his race (only the first two films share continuity, and the Djinn in the third film is killed at the end, so it seems that the last two films feature completely different ones)but comparing them together, the one in the first two films is by far the worst of them all, and especially evil even for his race.

[[DrivenToSuicide Oshino opts to kill herself first]] and when her beloved tries to avenge her, Asagoro simply has his throat cut without a hint of humanity. Suga and Asagoro deal with rivals on trumped up charges of treason while working to torture and brutalize anyone who might dare rebel. When Ichi goes to see Asagoro, Asagoro feigns friendship still...only to try to have Ichi shot as he leaves his home, knowing how deadly Ichi's sword skills are. Even at the end, Asagoro displays no loyalty to his own men and uses one as a HumanShield when Ichi comes for him.
** ''Zatoichi in Desperation'' has Boss Mangoro Kagiya, who also runs his territory with an iron fist. Mangoro has the populace cowed and his Yakuza kill as they will, even beating the village idiot to death for no real reason. He dispossesses the legitimate fishermen of their property and has his [[TheDragon bodyguard put them to the sword.]] When a little boy throws a pebble at him in a tiny display of defiance, Mangoro seizes him and [[WouldHurtAChild beats his skull in with the sheath of his sword.]] Working off indebted prostitution as well, Mangoro has a prostitute Ichi knows used as a hostage to get him to surrender by threatening to kill her, and then tortures Ichi by impaling his hands. When Ichi manages to fight back and kills most of Mangoro's men, Mangoro still tries to order his men to kill Ichi by [[BadBoss threatening their lives if they refuse]] and when this fails, rushes from house to house, threatening each peasant to give him shelter from Ichi's wrath.
* ''Film/{{Zwartboek}}'' ("Black Book"): In a movie about the SS and anti-Nazi resistance in [=WW2=], it's hard to pin down a single specific monster, but [[spoiler: Dr. Hans Akkermans]] sent, for a cut of their worldly belongings, hundreds, perhaps thousands of Jews, resistance fighters, anti-Nazis, and just plain unfortunate people to their deaths at the hands of resident SS attache Franken. Through a ruse conducted as an escape to freedom, [[spoiler:he and Van Gein secure safe passage for them into neutral or Allied territory, but step off before the boats leave, pledging to bring other refugees safe passage. Shortly after leaving the dock, the boats are machine-gunned by a Nazi patrol, their bodies looted, and the spoils divided between the conspirators]]. Towards the end of the movie, [[spoiler: Akkermans begins to kill off the conspirators, at first appearing to have had a heroic attack of conscience, only to later reveal he just didn't wish to share the wealth. Later on, he tries to kill the female protagonist to silence her knowledge of the goings-on and hold onto his status as a war hero]]. She escapes, gives the evidence to the sole surviving resistance member, and they kill him before he can escape, but his reputation escapes intact for an indeterminate amount of time afterwards. He seems caring and respectable, but it all was act which got innumerable amounts of people killed solely so he could [[{{Greed}} steal their heirlooms and melt them or sell them]].

* ''Film/EightMM'': We have TheSociopath and {{Sadist}} MalevolentMaskedMan Machine. Machine takes part in snuff films [[Monster/FilmAToE A to feed his depraved appetites and he is the one who rapes and murders an innocent woman on camera. When the tape is investigated, Machine is willing E]]

* [[Monster/FilmPToZ P
to kill the hero, he even gleefully whispers while strangling him how hard he's getting from the violence. Machine has no FreudianExcuse or reasoning for his action and he serves to show how a monster can come in the most innocuous of guises, particularly when you see under the mask [[spoiler: Machine is a bald, chubby, harmless looking man named George who asks "were you expecting a monster?"]]
* ''Film/TwelveYearsASlave'': Edwin Epps is a chilling, living example of the utter horrors of slavery and all that it entails. Epps runs his plantation with an iron fist and any slave who picks less than 200 pounds of cotton a day get [[ATasteOfTheLash the lash]]. Succeeding is no guarantee of safety, as Epps is liable to fly into violent furies when he's drunk, or [[ForTheEvulz just because he wants to hurt someone.]] Epps forces the slaves out of needed sleep to force them to dance for his amusement in a parody of a Gentleman's Ball and focuses especially on a beautiful slave named Patsey who he calls his Queen Of The Field for her talent with cotton-picking. Epps repeatedly rapes her, saying he can do what he wants with his property. He also flies into jealous furies over Patsey and later in the film forces TheHero Solomon to whip her by holding a gun to Solomon's head. Losing patience, Epps simply takes the whip from Solomon and lashes into Patsey until her back is cut to bloody shreds. When Solomon is revealed a free man, he can only think of the ''[[ItsAllAboutMe monetary loss]]'' this means to him.
* ''Film/ThirteenAssassins'': Lord Naritsugu is TheCaligula to an insane degree. His very first scene has him raping the daughter-in-law of a lord who's hosting him for the night, and then killing her husband for good measure. This isn't an isolated incident, either. Naritsugu has been doing this for so long, he threatens the very stability of the nation, and nobody can touch him, as he's the Shogun's brother. Later, we see him tie up a family for target practice ([[WouldHurtAChild including a little girl]]) and hear how he massacred a peasant revolt, taking the leader's daughter, after cutting out her tongue and chopping off her limbs, for his use as a sex slave. His only reaction to seeing the titular assassins mow down his loyal soldiers who die in defense of him is to contemplate how amazing the era of war must have been while deciding to return to such days.

[[folder:A - C]]
* ''Film/AlienResurrection'': Dr. Mason Wren is the head scientist of the covert military operation on the starship the USS Auriga, performing illegal experiments to bring back the Xenomorphs. He clones the deceased Ellen Ripley multiple times to extract the Queen hibernating in her. Most of the clones are born mutated and they die agonizing deaths, and he stores them for further study. He keeps the second-to-last one [[FateWorseThanDeath alive in constant pain and agony]]. He persuades General Perez to hire a bunch of space pirates to kidnap deep space travelers while they are still sleeping inside their stasis pods, and then implants them with facehuggers while looking on with smug satisfaction. He is ready to execute all of the pirates on the mere suspicion that one of them might be an infiltrator. When the Xenomorphs escape and they all try to get off the ship, [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder he betrays the others and murders Call as soon as he gets a weapon]] and leaves everyone else to be killed by the Xenomorphs so he can pilot the ship back to Earth himself. He later takes a hostage whom he threatens to kill in a last attempt to win.
* ''Film/AnAmericanWerewolfInParis'': Claude is the leader of a gang of SocialDarwinist werewolves and owner of the Club de la Luna. Claude made himself a werewolf by stealing the blood of the benevolent werewolf Serafina. Upon doing this, Claude uses his club to lure tourists and thrill seekers in before he and his pack transform and massacre them all. Claude uses his club to lure people to their deaths. When the hero, Andy, is bitten during a visit to the club, Claude tries to get Andy to join the Pack by forcing him to murder his friend Chris. When Claude learns Serafina's scientist father is working on a cure that ended up causing immediate transformation, he raids his lab to murder him and steal it to transform whenever he wants to kill innocent people.
* ''Film/{{Anaconda}}'': [[MagnificentBastard Paul Sarone]] is a former priest from Paraguay who decided to become a [[EvilPoacher snake poacher]] in the Amazon, catching them for rich clients. He arranged with his old hunting partner Matteo to lure a documentary film crew to a giant, man-eating Anaconda's home territory to use them as bait for the hunt. He incapacitates the team leader with a poisonous wasp before saving his life to win the crew's trust and offers them a "shortcut" that leads right into the snake's territory. The passengers are picked off one by one by the Anaconda, which crushes its prey in its coils before [[EatenAlive slowly digesting them alive]]. Sarone [[ManipulativeBastard manipulates one of them]] into becoming his "[[WeCanRuleTogether partner]]", but he sacrifices the guy without a second thought when he prevents the others from shooting the snake when it grabs his ally, because he can't make a profit off a dead animal. He strangles a woman to death with his thighs when she's come to get revenge for her dead boyfriend. He is ultimately overthrown but escapes, and captures two of the remaining people inside the Anaconda's feeding grounds. He douses them with monkey blood and tries to feed them to the snake so he can trap it, while mocking their impending deaths.
* ''Film/{{Apocalypto}}'': While all of the Mayan warriors are a particularly nasty lot, none stand out so much as the vicious [[TheDragon Dragon]] to the [[BigBad lead hunter Zero Wolf]] Middle-Eye. One of their best hunters and fighters, Middle-Eye is also the only rapist, who takes one of the women of a conquered village into a hut to violate her, and kills her after, as her husband Blunt struggles futilely to save her. When TheHero Jaguar Paw nearly kills Middle-Eye in a fight, Middle-Eye vengefully slits his father's throat in front of him and names Jaguar Paw 'Almost' in response. When the new captives are being marched back to the capital city, Middle-Eye at one point decides to lighten the load by throwing an exhausted slave to his death. Middle-eye stands above his fellow slave hunters in depravity and the others consider him sick.
* ''Film/BadBoys'': The first movie gives us French drug dealing gangster Fouchet, who never had pity for anyone and orchestrated several murders pretty unnecessary. He masterminds the theft of millions of dollars worth of heroin from a police station evidence lock up. To that end, he has one of his men dress up as a police officer, and then kills him in order to create a distraction. He makes off with the drugs, which he plans to sell in four days. When Eddie, who helped him set the heist up, decides to party with some hookers and a tiny portion of the stash, Fouchet kills Eddie and Max (one of the hookers), then tries to kill Julie (Max's roommate). He sends one of his men to hack Max's madame to death with an axe, kidnaps Julie for use as leverage, tries to kill Mike and Marcus (our cops) several times over, kills his chemistry team for "fucking with my schedule", and murders his buyer when the police interrupt the deal. His last act is to try and force Mike to kill him, and when that fails, to pull out a hidden pistol and try to kill Mike.
* ''Bad Dreams'': Dr. Berrisford is a mild, unassuming man who runs a hospital for those with mental trauma. In reality, he is a sadist with a god-complex and wishes to test his theories on suicide on his patients. Berrisford manipulates his mentally fragile patients emotionally to make them snap, resulting in them killing themselves and others. He has one leap out her window to the street, and has another throw her head into a turbine. One patient he leads to the roof to manipulate her into jumping off before the hero of the movie rescues her. Berrisford simply tries to push them off himself, after having mentally tortured said patient the entire film by planting the idea in her head that the ghost of a cult leader who'd tried to kill her was haunting her.
* ''Literature/TheBadSeed'': Rhoda, the perfect [[EnfantTerrible little]] [[CreepyChild girl]], kills a classmate to get a medal he'd won, had earlier killed an old woman by "accidentally" bumping into her on the ice, sets a suspicious caretaker on fire and plots to kill a friendly neighbor to get her pet lovebirds.
* ''Film/{{Banlieue 13}}'' (''District 13''): Taha is a brutal Parisian drug lord who kills anyone he doesn't like, [[BadBoss especially his own minions]]. He controls the largest gang-run ghetto, which the government walled off from the rest of the city to stop the further spread of crime. He's largely responsible for the deterioration in the district, but unlike the government he takes an active hand in making things worse by terrorizing the population to submit to his rule and dumping his drugs there. When a group of his minions fails to recover a large stash kept by Leito, he shoots them in quick succession until one of them comes up with an idea. When Leito and his sister Lola almost have him arrested, he uses his power to makes a deal with the cops to imprison Leito instead. He takes Lola so he can keep her as a beaten, drug-addicted sex slave on a leash in his personal quarters. When a nuclear bomb goes missing and is found by his gang, he considers selling it to arms dealers before blackmailing the police and the government with the lives of 2 million people by aiming it at the city centre with a missile launcher. He chains up Lola to the missile for good measure so the launch will incinerate her.
* {{Franchise/Batman}}'s nemesis SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker qualifies for this trope in both live action incarnations:
** ''{{Film/Batman}}'': Though The Joker/Jack Napier may not have been quite as gritty in his approach, the sheer scope of his reign of terror puts him on more or less the same level as his counterpart in ''Film/TheDarkKnight''. Even before his transformation, Jack Napier was outright horrible: he was the one who murdered Bruce Wayne's parents, and if his accomplice hadn't yelled at him to get out of there, [[WouldHurtAChild the psycho would have killed young Bruce as well]]. In the present day, for starters, he intends to poison all the Gothamites with Smylex Gas for no other reason than his own amusement. He has three mob bosses killed (with him even joking about their deaths, at least one of which qualified under NightmareFuel, where he electrocutes him with enough voltage to turn him into a charred skeleton after claiming that shaking his hand will be the end of it if he refuses to agree with the Joker). He also horrifically disfigures his girlfriend Alicia Hunt and was implied to have thrown her off a building later on in the film under the guise of suicide to free himself for Vicki Vale ("You can't make an omelet without breaking some eggs."). Gasses an art gallery full of people to death just to have some "alone time" with Vicki Vale and puts the components of Smylex into different cosmetics to cause random city-wide deaths just to make the people panic. He even cold-bloodedly guns down his best and only friend, Bob the Goon, just to vent his anger over Batman ruining the above attempt to gas everyone at the parade.
** ''Film/TheDarkKnight'': The Joker manages to be both a CompleteMonster AND a MagnificentBastard. At the start of the film, he has several of his minions commit what seems to be your standard bank robbery - except he also has his minions [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness kill each other off to keep most of the money for themselves after their accomplices did their job]], also disguising himself as one of their comrades. Right after that, he kills the bus driver, who apparently wasn't even in on that part of the plan, leaving himself with all the money. [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even the bank manager implied to be part of the Mob is quite horrified at the complete decadence of this criminal behavior, remarking that most criminals before them at least had honor and respect for their comrades]]. The Joker proceeds to exploit the Mob’s desire to be rid of Franchise/{{Batman}}, casually murdering henchmen, politicians and police to force Batman to unmask himself. He explicitly states that this is just an excuse. Despite implying at first that he wants payment for his services from the mob, he doesn't care one bit for money, even going so far as to [[MoneyToBurn burn his half of the Mob's money]] that he earned by retrieving it (with a man-either the mob's accountant or a crime boss- tied to the top of the money pile), causing even the Chechen mafioso to be frightened at the implications of this, thus giving a strong impression that the Joker most likely instigated the backstab-chain earlier solely ForTheEvulz and [[ItAmusedMe amusement]] of watching his thugs kill each other for money. [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even the Mob finds this a]] ''[[EvenEvilHasStandards tad]]'' [[EvenEvilHasStandards overkill]]. All the while, the Joker states how [[ForTheEvulz he’s just out to give Gotham a “better class of criminal”]]. This being the Joker, he doesn’t stop there; he also makes the accountant attempting to unmask Batman a target, blows up a hospital and attempts a Prisoner’s Dilemma Scenario to get a boatload of civilians and prisoners to blow each other up, also being the driving force behind [[StartOfDarkness Harvey Dent’s transformation into Two-Face]]. The Joker's goal is really to show that anyone and everyone can and will become a CompleteMonster if pushed far enough (or even if just given the chance). He's proven wrong. Even so, he doesn't care; no VillainousBSOD, just an annoyed shrug and an attempt to blow the two boats sky high with his own detonator.
* ''Film/BattleRoyale'': Kazuo Kiriyama from TheFilmOfTheBook stands in contrast to his [[TheStoic emotionless counterpart]] from the book and manga versions. Kiriyama in the film is a ruthless and psychopathic BloodKnight who voluntarily signed up for 'The Program' to be able to [[HuntingTheMostDangerousGame hunt down teenagers]] [[ForTheEvulz for fun.]] Throughout the film, Kiriyama wracks up the highest kill count, not caring if his victims are helpless or not, and after gunning down one girl, he uses a megaphone so everyone around can hear her pain and his execution of her. While he [[SilentAntagonist never speaks a word]], his SlasherSmile throughout the film speaks volumes for how much he is relishing his murder of everyone around him.
* ''Film/BasicInstinct'': [[TheVamp Catherine Tramell]] is a multi-millionaire [[TheSociopath sociopathic]] FemmeFatale who [[ManipulativeBitch manipulates]] and kills people [[ForTheEvulz for thrills]]. Her only known source of joy is derived from taking increasingly bigger gambles to defy death, orchestrating complex schemes to assert her dominance. Catherine is a BlackWidow type of SerialKiller who seduces people to fall for her, [[DepravedBisexual both men and women]], before killing them [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness when she grows bored of them]]. As a published crime novelist she consorts with known murderers to get inspiration and writes RomanAClef books about her own crimes to prove that she can get away with it. She [[SelfMadeOrphan killed her parents]] in a [[MakeItLookLikeAnAccident mysterious boat explosion]], killed a professor at Berkeley, hacked her boyfriend Johnny Boz to death with [[WeaponOfChoice an icepick]] [[DeathBySex during coitus]], killed detective Gus Moran, and considered killing her new plaything Nick before deciding that she wanted him as a sex toy just a bit longer. She manipulates her lesbian girlfriend Roxy into getting herself killed in a jealous attack on Nick and sets up her old acquintance Beth to [[FrameUp take the blame]] for the series of murders and get shot by Nick. Years later in London, she's still doing this with no sign of stopping or regret. When Catherine is set up with a court-ordered psychologist named Dr. Glass after another "accident", she plays mind games with him until she kills Glass's ex-wife and manipulates him to kill a rival psychologist. She frames him for both crimes and gets him committed to a mental institution for life. Catherine [[EvilGloating smugly informs him]] that she's used him for another one of her novels and admits that she's always been pure evil and likes it that way.
* ''Film/TheBigHeat'': Vince Stone is TheDragon to gangster Mike Lagana. Stone is also far crueler and more vicious than his business-minded boss is. When a cop ends up dead and the cop's girlfriend looks like she may talk, Stone kidnaps her and tortures her to death. When TheHero, Homicide investigator Bannion, first meets Stone at a nightclub, Stone is punishing a dancer by burning her with a cigarette. When Stone thinks his girlfriend, Debby Marsh, has been meeting with Bannion, he disfigures her with hot coffee and throws her out on the streets. He later attempts to kidnap Bannion's young daughter and carries out the murder of another member of the organization. When Marsh confronts him later and repays the favor by throwing boiling coffee at him, Stone mortally wounds her with a gunshot, giving Bannion a murder to finally pin on him.
* ''Film/TheBlackCat'': Hjalmar Poelzig, who plumbed depths barely considered in films in 1934. Peolzig is a Satanist and ruler of a vicious cult who conspires and tries to sacrifice an innocent traveler to Satan. It's revealed that Poelzig, in UsefulNotes/WorldWarI betrayed his "friend," Dr. Werdegast and had him sent to a prison camp so Poelzig could marry his wife. He later killed her and kept her embalmed corpse as a trophy...before marrying her and Werdegast's young daughter...and later murdering her as well.
* ''Film/{{Blacula}}'': Although briefly seen, the first film's incarnation of {{Dracula}} manages to be even worse than most other depictions. Not only is he a blood-sucking monster, he's also involved in [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain the slave trade]]. When the African prince and his wife come seeking his help, he reveals his racism and love for the slave trade, turns the prince into a vampire, renames him "Blacula", imprisons him in a coffin to starve for all eternity (and because he was now an immortal vampire, his suffering would never stop), and starves his wife to death. Unlike Blacula himself, who is a tragic character and spends most of the second film searching for a cure for his vampirism, Dracula relishes in being a vampire, showing no remorse for anything he does.
* ''Film/BlackDeath'': Langiva, the [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane supposed witch]] in a small commune , conducts supposed miracles to keep control of the town, satiating her ego. When the traveling knights come across the town, she has them captured and puts them to death in horrific ways: one crucified, another disemboweled. She demands they renounce Christianity and she will spare them, but when one does, she has him hanged. Langiva also drugs the young monk Osmund's lover to make her appear dead, and that Langiva revived her from the dead to make Osmund renounce God, but taunts Osmund later that he had killed his lover for nothing. Her final act of monstrosity is to have the leader of the knights torn apart by horses when he refuses her offer. All her actions are to [[ItsAllAboutMe satiate her ego]] and keep an iron-fisted control of the town.
* ''Film/{{Blade}}'': The vampire leader Deacon Frost, the BigBad from the first movie, is the worst villain in a setting filled with sadistic predators who kill humans as much for fun as for sustenance. Unlike the older vampire hierarchy who prefer to [[TheMasquerade remain in the shadows and rule humanity behind the scenes]] to protect their interests, he wants to openly reduce all humans to cattle despite [[TranshumanTreachery originally having been one himself]] instead of a vampire pureblood. He murders a vampire elder in an exceptionally painful way by removing his teeth and letting him burn up in the sunrise, and kills all the other council members to complete a ritual sacrifice so he can rule supreme as a PhysicalGod. He [[BadBoss murders his human minions whenever he likes]], attacks Blade's mentor Whistler and then leaves him to die slowly, tries to feed a woman to a [[OurZombiesAreDifferent ghoul-type zombie]], and [[WouldHurtAChild tries to kill a little girl]] in front of Blade by first threatening to slit her throat and then throwing her in front of city traffic to make his escape. His worst crime isn't revealed until the end of the film, when Blade discovers that Frost was the vampire who attacked his pregnant human mother and turned Blade into a Dhampyr to begin with. Frost fully intended the unborn child to die and since then has kept Blade's mother as his private consort and facilitated her corruption into a remorseless monster.
* ''The Blind Menace'', starring Shintaro Katsu (or ''Shiranui Kengyo'' in Japan) before his role in the ''Film/{{Zatoichi}}'' series, has as its VillainProtagonist the blind would-be CorruptPolitician Suginoichi. A manipulative snake of a man, Suginoichi spends the film committing a series of atrocities, from extortion, blackmail, murder and rape, while framing others for his crimes. In such instance, a noblewoman comes to Suginoichi for a loan of 50 ryo to save her brother from debt. Suginoichi gives her the money, but rapes her as well. The next day, in front of her husband, Suginoichi asks Lady Namie to return the money he's given her "for safekeeping." He later informs her he'll return it to her in exchange for sex- 5 ryo at a time. Suginoichi engineers his master's fall and death to take his place and when another of his rape victims [[DrivenToSuicide kills herself out of shame]], he simply laughs. He manipulates Yakuza into murdering his master and takes his place, securing a high-class wife in the process. When he realizes her infidelity, he decides she'll never fully belong to him and murders her as well. At the end, when his fortunes collapse, Suginoichi spends his downfall ranting at all around him, issuing impotent threats while unable to believe his defeat.
* ''Film/TheBlob'': Dr. Meddows in the 1988 remake is a military scientist specializing in bioweapons. He's inadvertently responsible for developing the Blob by sending the satellite and the proto-Blob sample in space, where it mutated before it fell back down on Earth. He didn't expect it to develop into a ravenous, all-consuming monster, but he is [[JustThinkOfThePotential more than pleased at this development and the military potential]]. He cardons off the town where the Blob has started its spread so he can test its killing potential on all the inhabitants and to perform further experiments on the survivors. He's even willing to sacrifice his own men to further his goal, as he orders the sewers blocked off when two of the heroes and one of his men try to escape from the pursuing Blob.
* ''Film/BlowOut'': Burke is a [[ProfessionalKiller professional assassin]] who shoots out the tires on a Presidential candidate's car to send it into the water. While he succeeds in killing his intended target, a woman in the car with him survives. Deciding he needs to eliminate her as well, Burke devises a truly cruel plan to cover his tracks. So there won't be inconvenient questions, Burke becomes a SerialKiller by targeting women who look similar to his target, strangling them to death with a garrote. He finally attempts to kill the girl, Sally during a parade so her death will be passed off as the act of a random maniac. Burke is indicated to be nothing more than a sociopath using his job to hurt others.
* ''Film/BlueVelvet'': Frank Booth, a sadistic sociopath with a penchant for random acts of rape and violence, [[EstablishingCharacterMoment is introduced]] by savagely beating and raping an abused nightclub singer and then taunting her about her mutilated husband (by him no less). It later turns out that Booth kidnapped the poor woman's husband and son (killing the husband in the process) only in order to make the woman his sadomasochistic sex slave, even cutting off her dead husband's ear and presenting it to her, just to torment her.]] When he figured out that Jeffrey Beaumont warned the police, he, in act of reprisal, beats Dorothy nearly to death, strips her naked, and leaves her in front of Beaumont's house. During the ending, we also discovered he has also [[BadBoss brutally lobotomized one of his henchmen]] after having killed Dorothy's husband]]. Not to speak of raping the protagonist.
* ''Film/{{Braveheart}}'': King Edward I "Longshanks" is portrayed as [[HistoricalVillainUpgrade far more evil than his real life counterpart ever was]]. Introduced as a "cruel pagan" who has annexed Scotland to England and just returned from a war with France, he authorizes mass rape in Scotland by restoring the ancient law of ''[[DroitDuSeigneur Ius Primae Noctis]]'', giving English lords in Scotland the right to claim "first night" of any peasant girl in their domain upon their marriage. He's doing this to win support from the English lords necessary to solidify his rule in Scotland and to gradually end the Scottish as a nation by outbreeding them. He sees his effeminate son Edward II simply as the continuation of his legacy, throws his son's homosexual lover out of a window for daring to speak to him as an advisor and beats his son's face in afterwards. After William Wallace stages a Scottish rebellion against him, Longshanks announces his intent to reduce the country to ashes just out of petty spite at Wallace. During an engagement with the Scots he orders his archers to [[UnfriendlyFire fire on his own troops]] while they're busy fighting the Scots, justifying it by stating that [[WeHaveReserves his men are expendable]]. After Wallace is captured by the English due to a conspiracy among the Scottish lords, Longshanks has him slowly and painfully tortured to death in a public execution while listening on from his own death bed.
* ''Film/BrotherhoodOfTheWolf'': Jean-Francois de Morangias appears to be a foppish, [[EvilCripple crippled aristocrat]], but is in reality [[ObfuscatingDisability a deadly enforcer for an evil cult]]. After returning from Africa, Jean-Francois brought with him a lion that he [[TheBeastmaster controls]] and keeps in a state of constant agony, using it to slaughter people while the poor creature is in so much pain it can't control itself. He also reveals a rather [[BrotherSisterIncest perverse lust towards his sister Marianne]] and later rapes her. While Jean-Francois is merely TheDragon to the Cult's leader, he comes off as the far more evil, cruel, and deadly of the two and his mastery of the Beast indicates he might [[DragonInChief be the one really in charge.]]
* ''Film/BulletproofMonk'': Strucker is a staunch Nazi who seems to extend his racial prejudices to everyone who isn't a White Anglo-Saxon Protestant later in the film. He is ruthless in his goal for world domination, perhaps epitomized early in the film where he slaughters a temple-full of Tibetan monks, [[ActualPacifist who refuse to defend themselves]]. He also has the informant who'd been helping him brutally executed and threatens his own granddaughter [[YouHaveFailedMe when she continues to fail him]]. He has no redeeming qualities and no goals beyond orchestrating a Holocaust Times Ten. This all might just be in order to make the thief protagonist look a bit more amiable.
* Nacho from the Spanish film ''Bullying'' is a great example of how severe bullying can be. This is demonstrated by him forcing [[TheWoobie Jordi]] to wet himself on camera, forcing him to drink alcohol and smoke who-knows-what, subsequently pointing a gun at his head, [[KickTheDog fracturing his dog's leg]] and [[ManipulativeBastard manipulating him into dropping from the basketball team to do his bidding with the threat of more violence and humiliation]], a continuous chain of abuse. He goes on to try to [[AttemptedRape rape]] and [[AxCrazy kill]] Jordi. This culminates in [[spoiler: [[DrivenToSuicide Jordi committing suicide.]]]]
* From the unconventional vampire tale ''Film/{{Byzantium}}'' about an immortal mother and daughter pair, we have Captain Ruthven from their past. During the Napoleonic wars, Ruthven preys on young women by kidnapping them and forcing them into prostitution with a bit of rape as his own personal compensation. This fate befalls future vampire Clara. Ruthven considers her his 'favorite' prostitute, having her gang-raped by his upper class associates and regularly violating and beating her himself. After she gives birth to her daughter Eleanor, Clara later cheats Ruthven out of immortality by becoming a vampire in his stead. In retribution, Ruthven rapes the teenage Eleanor to spite Clara. Making this worse was Ruthven slowly rotting of an STD. After raping Eleanor, he coldly welcomes her to his world: a slow death. Even in a world of vampires, Ruthven stands apart as [[HumansAreBastards the worst the film has to offer.]]
* ''Film/CabinByTheLake'' and its sequel ''Return to Cabin by the Lake'': Stanley Caldwell is [[MostWritersAreWriters a horror movie writer]] who moonlights as a misogynistic SerialKiller. To get inspiration for his scripts, he kidnaps teenage girls and locks them up in a soundproof room for several days before he dresses them up and [[FalseReassurance promises to let them go]], but instead drowns them in the nearby Lake Summit by weighing them down. He collects the corpses to create a grotesque underwater graveyard, which he frequently visits with scuba gear to tend to the decaying corpses. When his final victim Mallory escapes and his crimes are discovered by the police, he kidnaps her again to kill her succesfully before stabbing a movie director to death and preparing to drown his agent as well. Only Mallory is saved, but they [[NeverFoundTheBody never find Stanley's body]] and he disappears to continue his kills in secret. When a movie is being made based on his story, he infiltrates the movie set to commandeer the production. He gradually starts killing off the crew, drowning several people, [[BuriedAlive burying the director alive]], decapitating the AD with a boat engine, and staging a live electrocution of one of the female leads. When his second murder spree is finally halted by Allison, a screenwriter who discovers his true identity, he kidnaps her to make her the centerpiece of his newest underwater graveyard. Allison at first theorizes that Stanley must have been driven insane due to not being recognized, but he explains that [[ForTheEvulz there's no real reason he became a serial killer]]. He just enjoys watching people beg for their lives and wants to share his crimes with the world to fuel his massive ego.

Despite their fanatical devotion to Schmidt, [[BadBoss he continually shows no concern for the welfare of his men]], having them chomp {{cyanide pill}}s when captured to avoid giving out information on him, [[YouHaveFailedMe executing one merely for surviving an attack on a HYDRA base]], and activating the self-destruct sequence at another [=HYDRA=] base when the Allied forces overrun it, not caring that hundreds of his troops will be killed in the blast.

Cross's secondary goal in the movie is to take possession of his "grandchild" with the intention of subjecting her to the same abuse he subjected Evelyn to.

He orchestrated the whole thing, gave weapons to the psychopath [=McStarley=], and obviously placed less value on human life than entertainment and money. During the sickening rape scene of Paco's wife by [=McStarley=], his only expressed concern to his crew is to zoom in to "give the viewers what they want".

He organizes Devil's Night, in which buildings are burned down all throughout the city. He orders people terrorized out of their homes, and one such couple includes Eric Draven and his fiance Shelley, who are both violently murdered and Shelley raped by his goons.

He eventually becomes tired of the profit reaped from the arson and other activities, and announces his plans at a criminal convention to burn down everything purely ForTheEvulz.

He floods the city with drugs so dangerous that they kill the users half the time. He executes one of his goons when the guy protests that there aren't enough return customers by dumping some of the drugs, as Judah would prefer to kill more people than make a profit. He orders the death of Ashe and his son because the boy happened to witness his operation, as well as any other innocents who do. When Ashe is resurrected and comes for him, Judah captures his crow and ritualistically impales it to steal its power.

Defined by his utter separation from human morality after a point, Frankenstein begins to gain the parts by simply murdering people and harvesting them for resources. His worst moment is when in a later film in the series, he rapes a woman for nothing more than his own satisfaction, proving his only devotion is to his own desires above even science.

When his brother gives his map to his daughter Morgan, Dawg stops at nothing to kill his niece. He attacks his last brother Mordecai and threatens to run him through if Mordecai doesn't give up the map. When a luckless mook accidentally falls into Mordecai and impales him on Dawg's knife, Dawg kills the man growling [[HypocriticalHumor that he killed Dawg's brother]], though he's only angry Mordecai died ''before'' Dawg got the map.

* ''Film/{{Daredevil}}'': [[ProfessionalKiller Bullseye]], a swaggering PsychoForHire who prides himself on his unerring aim and his total lack of regard for human life. [[TheDragon Retained]] by [[BigBad Wilson "The Kingpin" Fisk]] as a troubleshooter, Bullseye is a mess of [[HairTriggerTemper barely contained violence]], who regularly murders in his off time. Over the course of the film he [[DisproportionateRetribution kills a man for insulting him]] in a bar, chokes an elderly woman to death for talking too much on a plane, murders another man in order to steal his motorcycle, and stabs one of Fisk's guards to death [[ImprobableWeaponUser with pencils]] after deciding he'd rather not go through security. That's in addition to killing Nikolas and Elektra Natchios (and two of their bodyguards) on Fisk's orders, and trying to hunt down an already wounded Daredevil for the heinous crime of making him miss.

* ''Film/DeathProof'': Stuntman Mike is a former stuntman and expert driver who becomes a SerialKiller of women by using his car as a murder weapon. He modifies the car to make it "100% Death Proof" to immunize himself from harm. Then he can use it for vehicular homicide by crashing into cars full of people and killing them in the process, or drive so dangerously that any passengers will die from the blunt force trauma caused by being thrown around in his car and hitting hard surfaces repeatedly. He extensively stalks his victims beforehand, and seems to derive sexual pleasure from his kills. He also toys with his prey, as he pursues a group of women attempting a stunt where one of them is on the hood of their car at high speed. He chases them down the road in a lengthy pursuit to see them terrified for their lives, getting kicks off the whole thing.
* ''Film/DeathRace'': The [[SmugSnake smug]], ruthless female prison warden Hennessey is [[EstablishingCharacterMoment introduced casually strolling through the yard unguarded to show how much even the worst inmates fear her]]. She rebuilt the Terminal Island prison to include a car race track where the prisoners perform death races with the promise of being released after winning five times, broadcasting the event to make a hefty profit. The racers and their female navigators die in the most brutal and graphic ways in the races, getting run over, blown up, or gutted by each other or Hennessey's armored trucks. She arranges to kill anyone close to making the quotum as she did with the original Frankenstein, a mask-wearing crowd favorite. She orders the innocent Jensen's wife killed and frames him for it, then once he's in her prison blackmails him with his daughter's well being to force him to take up Frankenstein's mantle. While the movie takes place in a CrapsackWorld, Hennessey simply uses her power to be as brutal as she can be to prove her superiority and butchers people for profit.
* ''Film/DeathWish'': Manny Fraker from the third film trumps all others in psychotic evil. Introduced in prison when he informs the hero Paul Kersey he's going to "kill a little old lady, just for you later," Fraker is soon out of prison and on to ruling the streets with an iron fist.

* ''Film/DemolitionMan'': [[AxCrazy Simon Phoenix]] hails from a {{dystopia}}n era of Los Angeles when the city was being overrun with violent criminals in the late 20th century, where he indulged in theft, kidnapping, rape, arson, and murder to his heart's content. He starts the movie by holding 30 people hostage and demanding a ransom, when in fact he already killed them all for his perverse amusement before the cops even arrived. He manipulates the CowboyCop John Spartan into making a misjudgment that makes him seem responsible for their deaths in the raid on Simon's compound, sending them both to a [[HumanPopsicle cryo-prison]] for decades. He's woken up in 2032, when the rebuilt megacity of San Angeles has been turned into a crimeless nanny state after a great calamity. Simon indulges in his freedom to be a maniac and spread chaos again, casually murdering almost everyone who gets in his way by beating people to death, [[EyeScream gouging out someone's eye]] to [[BorrowedBiometricBypass bypass a retinal scan]], hacking into a computer to [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impale someone to a wall]], or simply shooting them.

He teams up with his old gang after they're unfrozen and eventually [[TheStarscream murders Cocteau]] to [[DystopiaJustifiesTheMeans start a new lawless dystopia]] where he and his minions can commit crimes all day. He starts by unfreezing every criminal locked up in the cryo-prison, including murderers, rapists, and serial killers, and gunning down all the technicians because [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness he no longer has any use for them]]. Phoenix is one of the poster boys for the malicious type of ChaoticEvil villain, inherently hating rules simply because they hold him back from being a murderous psycho.
* Some film incarnations of [[{{Satan}} The Devil]] have qualified due to their sheer monstrousness and lack of [[SatanIsGood sympathy in their portrayal]]:
** ''Film/TheDevilsAdvocate'': [[MeaningfulName John Milton]] runs an OccultLawFirm staffed by his demons and humans he corrupted, using the legal system to get violent criminals off the hook and spread corruption everywhere in the world, hoping that the Earth will become such a perversion that it will hurt Heaven and spite God. Having to work around the free will of humans, [[TheCorrupter he subtly manipulates them to give in to evil instead]]. He rapes multiple women over the years so he can find offspring good enough to mate with each other and further produce TheAntichrist. He drives [[spoiler:Kevin's wife Mary Ann]] to madness and suicide, and rapes her for half a day, leaving her with scratch and bite marks all over her body. He later taunts his son Kevin with this crime in an especially vile PostRapeTaunt. He brutally kills everyone within his company who tries to expose his crimes. When Kevin destroys his plan by killing himself, he [[OffingTheOffspring kills his daughter]] to vent his anger by turning her into a withered husk.
** ''Film/EndOfDays'': {{Satan}} is [[SealedEvilInACan released from Hell every 1000 years]] at the end of the millennium to impregnate a chosen women against her will so he can sire TheAntichrist. This will cause TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt by turning it into a nightmarish hellscape for eternity. Throughout the film he commits countless atrocities for his personal amusement or [[ForTheEvulz no reason at all]]. He [[DemonicPossession possesses a New York businessman]] to accomplish this and later leaves the damaged host to die when he finds that [[HealingFactor repairing it again]] will take too long. In his introductory scene he makes out with a woman in front of her husband in a crowded restaurant, then leaves and blows up the whole place as he walks away. He uses his powers to [[SexGod make himself sexually irresistible]] and take advantage of several women, but when it's no longer convenient for him he tries to rape the heroine kicking and screaming. He plagues his chosen concubine Christine York with vivid nightmares that he'll take her one day. He murders his own Satanist minions [[YouHaveFailedMe for the most minor failure or inconvenience]]. He burns someone alive for refusing to kill his best friend and vacating his side, kills a room full of priests trying to stop the world-ending union and earlier crucifies one to a ceiling for the awful crime of almost damaging his BadassLongcoat, and forces the hero Jericho Caine to [[MindRape relive his dead wife and child's murder]] after he refuses to help him in his plans.

* ''Film/DirtyHarry'': The Scorpio Killer (pictured above), with his nerve-screeching laugh, [[SmugSnake smug]], [[DirtyCoward cowardly]] demeanor (I have the right to a lawyer!) and sick [[ForTheEvulz sense of fun]] serves as a contrast for the loose cannon cop Harry Callahan, who still deep down cares for justice bureaucratic systems often fail to deliver while failing to give criminals apt punishments. The film starts with Scorpio sniping a swimming woman to death. His [[MoralEventHorizon actual defining moment of sinking low]] is when he kidnaps a 14-year-old girl, hides her in a well with a limited oxygen supply and sends the police a message that the girl will die if the ransom money doesn't drop in time. When Callahan delivers the money, Scorpio hits him from behind and proceeds to tell him that he changed his mind and is going to let the girl die anyway. When the girl is found, she's dead (and it's strongly implied Scorpio repeatedly raped her). Later, Scorpio captures a school bus full of children, planning to [[WouldHurtAChild kill them all]].

When he captures Wikus, he fully plans to cut off his Prawn parts and eat them himself.

When he gets his hands on his targets, he also wastes no time in giving them brutal deaths.
* ''Film/DollarsTrilogy'':
** ''Film/AFistfulOfDollars'': Ramon Rojo (portrayed by Gian Maria Valonte) just seems to [[ForTheEvulz enjoy being evil]].

He kidnaps a woman and forces her to live with him, claiming that her husband was cheating him at cards. He slaughters the rival Baxter family as they try to surrender to him, tortures [[TheHero Joe]] for helping the woman he kidnapped escape, and, towards the end, has [[OlderSidekick Silvanito]] tortured when he thinks he might be hiding Joe and is about to hang him when Joe interrupts. That's in addition to being an ArrogantKungFuGuy regarding his skill with the [[WeaponOfChoice rifle]], an extreme {{Jerkass}} in his interactions with everybody, and the [[EvilGenius brains]] of a gang of illegal rum-runners who keeps a stranglehold on the life of a [[DyingTown small town]].
** ''Film/ForAFewDollarsMore'': El Indio (also Gian Maria Valonte) is the classic Mexican {{Bandito}}, turned UpToEleven. He obtains a secret from his cellmate, and then kills his cellmate so that he can keep the information for himself. He forces a former member of his gang to listen to his wife and infant child being slaughtered, then forces him into a duel, which he rigs in his own favour. When he discovers that Colonel Mortimer and Monco are {{bounty hunter}}s, he has them tortured, then sets them free, killing one of his own men and framing them for it; his plan is to have his gang and the bounty hunters kill each other, leaving all the loot for him. When Nino, the one gang member he'd planned to keep around is killed in front of him, El Indio displays absolutely no reaction, and he's ultimately revealed to have killed Mortimer's brother-in-law and raped his sister, [[DrivenToSuicide driving her to suicide]]. An AxeCrazy drug-addict who parasites off those around him, El Indio shocked audiences at the time, and continues to do so now.

In the opening scenes of the film, he tracks down and murders a man at another's behest. When his victim offers him money if he will spare his life, Angel Eyes replies, "Once I'm been paid, I always see my job through to the end." He kills the man and his son, takes the money, and reports to his employer...whom he promptly kills, since he wants to keep the gold he's found out about for himself. He proceeds to [[WouldHitAGirl beat the information about the location of the gold out of a hooker]]. Later on, he has [[ColdBloodedTorture Tuco tortured]] and watches with absolutely no emotion on his face. While this is going on, he has his men force the [=POW=]s to sing in order to cover up the sounds of their friends being tortured. He's less a character than he is {{Greed}} in a trench coat and cowboy hat. He's so bad that the other two main characters — [[BlackAndGreyMorality no saints themselves]] — [[EnemyMine both agree to shoot him]] in the three-way MexicanStandoff that ends the film, [[TeethClenchedTeamwork despite their extreme distaste for one another]]. [[TheStoic Cold-blooded]] and without remorse, Angel Eyes will cross any lines, and commit any crime as long as he can make a profit doing it.
* ''Film/{{Dragonheart}}'': King Einon. At the film's start, Einon seems a youth in need of guidance by his wise mentor, but it is revealed that any honor Einon has is just a front to learn swordsmanship from Sir Bowen. After Einon finds his dying father, he just tries to wrench the crown out of the man's hands, showing what he will become. When mortally wounded, Einon is saved only when a dragon shares his heart with him, linking their lives. As King, Einon taxes and woks the people without mercy and orders a man's eyes put out with hot pokers for no real reason. Einon tries to rape the man's daughter later and when his mother tries to kill the dragon to stop Einon, Einon kills her with no remorse. While Bowen initially blames the dragon for Einon's change, it turns out Einon was always a monster and the dragon shared his heart to try to change his nature.
* ''Film/{{Dredd}}'': Madeline "[[OneBadMother Ma-Ma]]" Madrigal is the de facto ruler of the Peach Trees apartment complex and [[TheAggressiveDrugDealer the biggest and most aggressive drug lord]] spreading the Slo-Mo drug throughout Mega City One, which slows the user's perception of time. Her meteoric ascent to power in Peach Trees is noted as unprecedented for its sheer senseless carnage and bloodshed, as she and her followers slaughtered their way to the top with a SlasherSmile on her face. She is introduced having several rival gangsters skinned alive, then thrown out a ''very'' long drop after being given Slo-Mo to draw out their deaths. When the Judges arrive to investigate and capture one of her chief lieutenants, Ma-Ma has the Peach Trees complex shut down to trap Dredd and his trainee inside to silence any witnesses. She has no compunction about any civilians getting caught in the crossfire, to the point that she opens fire into an apartment block with [[GatlingGood gatling guns]] to kill the two judges. Dredd, a trigger-happy KnightTemplar himself, notes [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill just how overkill this is]]. We later learn that she personally [[EyeScream carved out the eyes]] of her lead techie to forcefully give him [[ElectronicEyes cybernetic implants]] and playfully threatens to gut him while issuing orders. The captured lieutenant is later returned to her, and she only refrains from killing him [[CantKillYouStillNeedYou because she's running low on men at that point]]. She finally arranges to blow up half the complex, with a population of thousands, by detonating a bomb tied to her heartrate.
* ''Film/DriveAngry'': Jonah King is a satanic cult leader obsessed with his own power and leading a group of psychos slavishly devoted to him. He lured the criminal AntiHero [[MeaningfulName John Milton]]'s daughter into his cult. After Milton's sudden death, King kills her husband, takes her baby girl (Milton's granddaughter) to [[WouldHurtAChild use in a sacrifice]] and forces Milton's daughter to give him a blowjob at gunpoint. She bites his dick off, after which he personally cuts off her head and [[CreepySouvenir keeps her femur as part of a cane he uses]]. When the resurrected Milton reveals his status as a eunuch, King immediately shoots the only cultist who could confirm it. He also briefly kidnaps Piper, Milton's female companion on the ride, but when she proves too much trouble to convert, he decides to kill her and [[ILoveTheDead defile her corpse afterwards]]. It's later revealed by the Accountant that King isn't actually serving {{Satan}}. The Devil is really a PunchClockVillain who hates that evil acts are committed in his name, so the baby's sacrifice is actually meaningless and is only meant to fuel King's ego. Ultimately King is just a power-tripping cultist, rapist, and baby-killer whose outward image as a messiah is a sham.
* ''Film/EasternPromises'': Semyon, the leader of TheMafiya, at first seems [[BaitTheDog a nice old man]], but it's later revealed he is a domineering, abusive and violent man who has little but contempt for his unstable, AmbiguouslyGay son Kirill and also runs a sex-slave ring in addition to his usual criminal activities. He is also the rapist of a 14-year-old girl, having raped her out of disgust when Kirill couldn't do the deed.

After Frey scorns him, he declares he'll make sure her daughter is never healed. When his superior Delacourt chastises him for his failures, Kruger just kills her and then declares he'll take over Elysium itself to [[TheCaligula give it the ruler it deserves]].
* ''Film/TheExorcist'': Pazuzu, the foul-mouthed demon, was the evil spirit that possessed Regan [=MacNeil=] in the film. He used her to commit his evil deeds such as lashing out at others and shouting obscenities such as the (in)famous YourMom quote. When faced with the Catholic priests Merrin and Karras, he mockingly encouraged them to try to remove his influence from Regan. When Merrin was left in the room with the possessed girl, he has a heart attack, which was believed to have been caused by Pazuzu himself. This left Karras alone to fight the demon. When he successfully removed Pazuzu from Regan, Pazuzu immediately went into him and tried to force Karras to kill Regan since she was of [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness no further use to him]]. Pazuzu is called the most frightening creature in a horror film for a reason.
* ''Film/TheExpendables'': [[RogueAgent Rogue CIA agent]] James Munroe, the BigBad of the first film. A drug smuggler and [[HiredGuns mercenary]], Munroe is responsible for his partner, [[TheGeneralissimo General Garza]], transforming the island of [[BananaRepublic Vilena]] into a PoliceState, using the people as labor in their drug operation.

Grimsrud later loses patience with the kidnapping victim and kills her simply because her crying is getting on his nerves. When he has a dispute with a fellow conspirator over a car, Grimsrud [[MurderIsTheBestSolution just kills him]] [[AxCrazy with an axe]] and feeds his body into a woodchipper. When he's finally caught by the police, the heroine Marge Gunderson is left stunned how a human being could do the things Grimsrud has done for just "a little bit of money."
* ''The First Power'': Patrick Channing is a satanic SerialKiller who makes a pact with the devil for supernatural power. With a huge string of corpses behind him, Channing offered the deaths to Satan by carving a pentagram into every villain, earning him the name "The Pentagram Killer." After being caught and executed, Channing [[BackFromTheDead revives]] and continues killing with the added twist that he now aims for revenge against the cop who caught him. His aim after that is simply to keep killing as many people as he can forever, with the added twist he can [[DemonicPossession possess others]] as well.
* ''Film/AFistfulOfDynamite'': [[ColonelBadass Colonel]] [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Günther]] "[[TheStoic Gutierez]]" [[TheHeavy Reza]] (Antoine Saint-John) is a [[SilentAntagonist silent villain]] who, throughout the movie, doesn't express a single emotion beyond self-satisfaction. He tortures Dr. Villega into identifying various members of a crowd as revolutionaries, then has them shot in front of him, smiling a little wider with each body that hits the ground. He's also the man responsible for [[spoiler:the deaths of Juan's children and father]], singlehandedly causes the film to shift from BlackComedy to serious drama, leads an army that seems intent on [[SociopathicSoldier killing or imprisoning everyone they meet]], and in the climax, guns down [[spoiler:Mallory]] from behind. This, coupled with his ImplacableMan status makes him utterly terrifying.
* ''Film/FlowersInTheAttic'': Corrinne and Olivia Foxworth. Olivia, Corrinne's mother, is a fanatic who tortures and abuses her family for what she perceives as "sinful." Corrinne, having lost her parents' favor by running away and marrying her own uncle, wants to inherit the family fortune, but cannot if she and her husband had children.

He keeps the seemingly normal infant, now named Martin, as a test subject until his mutations will reappear. He presents himself as a fatherly figure to Martin while manipulating him for his own ends. He uses a lab dog that Martin grew attached to for the telepod experiments, and when the experiment fails, he keeps the mutated creature alive in agony for years for further study.

* ''Frankenstein's Army'': [[MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate Dr.]] Viktor Frankenstein, the grandson of [[Literature/{{Frankenstein}} the more famous Frankenstein]], is a true MadDoctor working to make an army of [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot nightmarish cyborg zombies]], ostensibly for [[StupidJetpackHitler the Nazis]] but in reality to [[TheEvilsOfFreeWill purge the world (minus himself) of free will]]. To create his minions he massacres soldiers and civilians alike (even slaughtering a convent of nuns in order to convert their church into a zombie factory) and uses both dead and living subjects ([[WouldHurtAChild including children]]), though he feels fresh meat is more effective, and for no reason other than his own depravity extracts parts from his subjects while they're fully conscious. While he claims efficiency as a goal most if not all of his creations are just twisted amalgamations of flesh and machine parts with no apparent purpose beyond inducing terror and slaughtering all in their way.
* ''Film/{{Frenzy}}'': [[SerialKiller Bob Rusk]] is one of the most deranged villains in an Creator/AlfredHitchcock film. Known as the "Necktie Murderer," Rusk is implied to rape his victims, before graphically strangling them to death with his tie. Rusk displays his violent compulsions multiple times, but even frames one of the only supposed friends he has for the murders with a dead woman's item, perfectly willing to let innocents take the fall for him.
* ''Film/FrightNight2011'': Jerry Dandridge stands in stark contrast to the original film's [[AffablyEvil charming and likable monster]]. The film opens with Jerry having slaughtered a family, including the teenage son, out of suspicion the boy was spying on him. Jerry reveals himself as a savage predator who kidnaps and feeds on people, keeping them locked up in his private larder. When Charlie Brewster tries to rescue a woman Jerry held hostage, Jerry had been toying with them both and had already turned her, letting her die in the sunlight solely to mess with Charlie. He's more than happy to tear the throats out of innocent bystanders and turns Charlie's girlfriend into a vampire in front of a helpless Charlie, and later mocks him as he makes out with her. While Dandridge in the original held a certain elegance, the remake's version is nothing more than a savage, sadistic predator.

[[folder:G - J]]
* ''Film/GalaxyQuest'': The galactic warlord [[BigBad Sarris]] launches a campaign of genocide against the naïve and child-like Thermian race in order to get a powerful and mysterious device the Thermians have, the Omega 13, not knowing that the Omega 13, as well as the entire Thermian culture, is based on an old television show called "Galaxy Quest," and that the Thermians have recruited the actors from the show to save them. In order to get the Omega 13, [[ColdBloodedTorture Sarris tortured the former Thermian commander for days]], only killing him when he [[LovesTheSoundOfScreaming "grew tired of the noises" the old commander made]]. In his pursuit of the device, Sarris wiped out the entire Thermian race save for a crew of hundreds, tortured Thermian leader Mathesar in front of lead actor, Jason Nesmith, and prepares to torture Nesmith's LoveInterest, Gwen, when Jason can't answer what the device does. Finding out the truth, Sarris forces Nesmith to tell Mathesar about the show in order to [[HopeCrusher crush Mathesar completely]], tries to have the actors thrown out the airlock, and tries to murder the last remnant of the Thermian race by slowly suffocating them to death precisely. Sarris also shows no empathy for the lives of those under his command, he [[OffWithHisHead decapitated his lieutenant]] for [[DisproportionateRetribution failing to get the ship's shields up in time]] and [[DecapitationPresentation carried his head around on a spike]], and doesn't care that his men on the Thermian ship will be killed in the upcoming core implosion so long as they kill the actors for him. His ship destroyed, Sarris disguises himself as a crewmember and teleports onto their ship, where he personally kills actor and Thermian alike, only failing due to the Omega 13 allowing for time travel. Throughout the movie, Sarris manages to be an [[KnightOfCerebus utterly horrifying villain]] despite being in [[VileVillainSaccharineShow an otherwise funny movie]].
* ''Film/{{Gamer}}'':
** [[BigBad Ken Castle]] is a billionaire technology designer in a dystopian future. He develops an artificial environment called "Society" where users can remote control other people (all of whom [[AndIMustScream have no control over their own body while inside]] and only volunteer because they need the money and feel disgusted by it) to do any depraved thing they want with their avatars short of plain murder. Then he indulges people in even that desire as well when he offers the government a solution to the prison overcrowding by creating a second game called "Slayers", in which prisoners have to fight to the death in an enclosed war zone under the control of more remote players. Any prisoner who can survive 30 rounds will supposedly be freed, but Castle [[ILied reneges on this arrangement]] when the hero Kable is close to winning, and sets him up to be killed. His ultimate goal, revealed late in the film, is his secret extension of the mind control nanotech they use on the "characters" in the games to the general population so he will be in personal control of 100 million people in short time, and eventually make everyone in the world his slave, robbing them of anything even resembling free will. He uses this power to control Kable's body and tries to force him to [[WouldHurtAChild slit his little girl's throat]]. He is utterly [[LackOfEmpathy bereft of empathy]], to the point he sees people only as things and laughs off every one of his minions who die for him.
** [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Hackman]] is an [[ScaryBlackMan enormous inmate]] in Kable's prison who went on a massive killing spree [[AxCrazy just to be locked up and personally enjoy the carnage in Slayers]]. He arranges with Castle to remove the mind control on himself so he has an advantage over the other prisoners and can kill Kable himself. He kills another prisoner for no reason than to show Kable the resulting blood on his hands, and threatens to pay a visit to the two "whores" Kable has on the outside, namely his wife and daughter. Through the rest of the film he just keeps murdering people (especially innocents) left and right, clearly [[PsychoForHire deriving sadistic joy]] from all the crimes he commits with his own hands.
* ''Film/GangsterSquad'': [[KosherNostra Mickey Cohen]] is an utterly psychotic mobster whose brutality terrifies even other hardened mobsters. Cohen opens by having a friendly emissary from the Chicago mob executed by being torn apart between two trucks, before throwing a group who are late in their protection money in their building, locking them inside and burning them with the building. A building he'd had women brought to in order to be hooked on drugs and turned out as prostitutes. He furiously executes an underling with [[CruelAndUnusualDeath a power drill]] due to the man [[YouHaveFailedMe failing him]] and when his girlfriend opts to leave him, Cohen sends one of his men to throw acid in her face.
* ''The Ghost In The Machine'': Karl Hochman is known as [[SerialKiller The Address-Book Killer]] for his predilection of obtaining victims from stolen address books. While driving to kill a victim, Karl is injured in a car accident and a freak electrical surge when he is hooked up to machinery results in his soul becoming digitized. Now free to continue his spree, he uses his powers to scan address books digitally and murder everyone on the lists. Now able to manipulate any electrical, Karl initiates electrical fires, causes explosions and uses electrical shocks to claim new victims with seemingly no way to escape him.
* ''Film/GhostRider'': In the extended cut, [[NamesToRunAwayFrom Blackheart]] is a [[TheEvilPrince prince of Hell]] and the [[AntiChrist son]] of [[{{Satan}} Mephistopheles]]. [[DrivenbyEnvy Jealous]] of his father's power and angered by the fact that Mephistopheles gave the power of Hellfire to a lowly human instead of him, Blackheart plans to obtain the contract of San Venganza. This contract would grant him the power of a thousand evil souls who made a Main/DealWithTheDevil. Through out the movie, Blackheart [[AxCrazy murders almost every human he comes into contact with]], only sparing those who can serve his plans later. Blackheart ultimately plans to use the power of the contract to create Hell on Earth and devour as many souls and then [[TheStarScream overthrow his father]].
* ''Film/GhostShip'': [[MeaningfulName Ferriman, aka the literal "Ferryman"]] is an infernal accountant working for Hell to collect souls. He was a bastard even before he became a demon, as he only got the job because he lived a gravely immoral life. He impersonates a human to [[TheCorrupter trick people into committing mortal sins]] and kill themselves so he can steal their souls. He goads the crew on the Italian cruise liner the ''Graza'' to butcher everyone on board to [[GoldFever get a crate of gold bars]] that he brought with him from a ship they salvaged. It turns into a complete massacre, with people being attacked all over the ship and cut open, poisoned, and machine gunned to death, including a child being hanged in her room. The instigators turn on each other after killing the passengers, and he kills the last one with a meat hook. He traps the souls on the ship in fear and torment until he can send them all to Hell. He lures multiple salvage crews to the derelict cruise liner to fix the ship, tricks them into staying to get the gold, and then kills them all one by one. Not even his job explains his excessive sadism in killing people to steal their souls, as there's no hint that there are others like him or that it's standard procedure. Worse yet, the end of the film implies he's about to do it all over again.
* ''Film/{{Gladiator}}'': The power-hungry, violent, [[VillainousIncest incestuous]] Emperor Commodus is the heir to the wise Emperor Marcus Aurelius, but when he learns that his father wants to [[GoodRepublicEvilEmpire make Rome a republic again]] and appoint the noble General Maximus as regent instead of him, he [[TheEvilPrince kills Aurelius]], frames Maximus, and orders the death of Maximus (who escapes) as well as Maximus's wife and son (who don't). He casts himself as an [[WellDoneSonGuy unworthy son to a father with high demands]], but his {{Patricide}} and subsequent [[TheCaligula megalomania]] show that his grievances with his father only reflect on [[ItsAllAboutMe his desire to become ultimate ruler]], not to make his father proud. He becomes Emperor, and marginalizes the Senate's authority while keeping the populace in line with food and games. When Maximus reappears in Rome and the possibility of revolution looms he goes completely off the rails. He tries to have Maximus killed in the arena, but this fails. He then lures his enemy into a trap and unfolds the insurrection, killing most of Maximus's sympathizers and planning to execute the rest after publicly killing Maximus himself in a spectacular showdown, which [[DirtyCoward he shifts in his favor by secretly wounding Maximus before the fight]]. His "love" for his sister Lucilla is later revealed to simply be [[BrotherSisterIncest lust]], and when he learns that she is working with Maximus, the "merciful" Commodus demands that the horrified Lucilla [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil provide him with an heir]] so his "blood pure" progeny can [[ThousandYearReign reign as tyrants for a thousand years to come]]. He threatens to kill his own nephew (Lucilla's son) if Lucilla doesn't consent to becoming his personal sex slave, or takes her life to defy him. Even the PraetorianGuard (his personal bodyguard, who are ''paid'' to protect him at all cost) are so disgusted by him by the end that they refuse to aid him when he loses his sword in the final fight.
* ''Film/TheGoodSon'': Henry Evans is the ultimate example of an EnfantTerrible in film. Having a disturbing attraction towards death and the idea of murder, Henry built a philosophy around himself that stated that if people were to rid themselves of their morals, [[ChaoticEvil then they are free to do any evil acts that they wanted to do without such concepts holding them back]]. Prior to the main plot, Henry murdered his own younger brother in the bathtub [[DisproportionateRetribution just because he had happened to be playing with a toy that belonged to him]]. He then goes on to convince his cousin, Mark, into helping him throw a dummy dubbed "Mr. Highway" off of a bridge, resulting in massive car accidents. He also [[KickTheDog shot and killed an innocent dog with a nail gun]] from a distance and he also attempted to drown his sister in a frozen lake when they were skating together. When Henry's mother was beginning to realize that her son was a remorseless [[TheSociopath sociopath]], she decided to send him to a mental institution so that he could get the help that he needed. Unwilling to lose his freedom to do bad, Henry decided that his family [[SelfMadeOrphan needed to die]] so that he could be free to do whatever he wanted.
* ''Film/GranTorino'': Spider is a Hmong gangster who terrorizes his own neighbourhood with his gang. He starts off by pressuring his cousin Thao to steal his neighbor [[BadassGrandpa Walt Kowalski]]'s vintage Gran Torino. When he fails at this, Spider and his gang beat up Thao and continually harass his family. Walt initially scares him off, but he continues to harass Thao afterwards and puts out a cigarette in his face. In retaliation for Walt threatening one of his gang members at gunpoint, Spider performs a drive-by shooting on Thao's family and kidnaps his cousin Sue to subject her to a bloody gang rape. When Walt finally confronts them in the climax, he and his gang brutally murder him just for putting his hand in his pocket.

He and his men proceed to murder every one of the Mormons, with Loco smugly adding they'll collect the bounties nice and legally. His actions, in the end narration, are noted to have absolutely horrified society and precipitated the end of Bounty Hunting.
* Michael Myers in the original [[Film/{{Halloween 1978}} Halloween]] films is a cold-blooded SerialKiller with a hatred of teenage sexuality and a fondness for carving knives. After killing his sister at the [[EnfantTerrible age of six]], Michael breaks out of prison as an adult and goes on a killing spree through his hometown of Haddonfield, on his way to kill his [[CainAndAbel surviving sister]], murdering three of her friends before targeting her. He's stopped, but the horror doesn't end there. Michael returns repeatedly, making numerous attempts on Laurie, her [[RevengeByProxy daughter Jaime]], and anybody else who gets in his way. Incapable of feeling empathy, and driven by a loathing of seemingly everybody he encounters, the [[ImplacableMan unstoppable]] and [[SilentAntagonist perpetually silent]] Michael helped to define the SlasherMovie as we know it, and remains one of the most bone-chillingly evil.
* ''Film/HalloweenIIISeasonOfTheWitch'' has [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Conal Cochran]], the CEO of Silver Shamrock Novelties, a company known for its Halloween masks, which it shipped all over the United States. Cochran, had built these masks with a computer chip made from a fragment of Stonehenge. When Silver Shamrock's commercial would air on Halloween night, the chip was to unleash a lethal swarm of insects and snakes, killing the wearer and anyone in the immediate vicinity. Cochran is shown demonstrating how these masks work on an innocent family, laughing all the while as they are poisoned and eaten. His plan is to kill thousands of children all over the country, partially to bring back the darker aspects of the Celtic festival Samhain, which he connects to witchcraft, but also just because he considers this mass murder to be a fun joke, the best ever in fact, because it's a joke on the children.
* ''Film/HardBoiled'': [[BigBad Johnny Wong]] tops Creator/JohnWoo's other villains in terms of sheer nastiness. He has absolutely no qualms in blowing away innocent bystanders who are unfortunate enough to get in his way, as shown during the very first shootout of the movie.

Of all the villains, Torrez is the only one who doesn't get any redeeming qualities, motives, or hints of remorse, and does what he does only to line his own pockets and to satisfy his sadism. He rockets past the MoralEventHorizon in the first five minutes, kidnapping a girl who has info on his drug ring, brainwashing her so she'll turn on Machete when he tries to rescue her, and then blows her brains out for her loyalty. He brings in Machete's wife and chops her head off, and casually notes he also killed his school-age daughter on the way there. He doesn't want to give Machete an honourable death by cutting of his head, so instead he sets the building on fire and leaves him for dead to be burned alive. Later in the film he just chuckles at seeing Booth strangle one of his minions to death in front of a computer screen, and is revealed as the mastermind behind the EvilPlan to expel all the Mexican immigrants from the US, so he can get a monopoly on the drug trade by controlling the border. Even his death scene just manages to make him more disgusting rather than admirable; when Machete impales him he doesn't want to admit he lost and go out in a blaze of glory, so he just drives it in further so it can be said only he himself was able to kill him in the end. Even his female bodyguard walks off in disgust at that point. He used to be Machete's partner in the Federales, so he actually was a good guy at one point before he decided to go dark side of his own will.
* ''Film/TheManFromNowhere'': Jong-Seok, younger brother of drug-dealer Man-Seok, and junior partner in their BigBadDuumvirate. While his [[TheStoic icy older brother]] [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes might care about his well-being]], Jong-Seok cares about [[PsychoForHire nothing but having as good a time as possible.]] He's physically abusive of the women he sleeps with, tortures So-Mi's mother by burning her with a blow-dryer (then kidnaps So-Mi for their organ harvesting operation), tortures her mother's boyfriend by beating him and threatening to burn off his testicles, and sends [[TheDragon Ramrowan]] to sadistically murder their former boss, Mr. Oh. When a little girl involved in their drug operation passes out, Jong-Seok has her dragged off so her organs can be harvested and sold. A PsychopathicManchild at its worst, Jong-Seok uses his last moments alive to brag to Tae-Sik about how he has failed So-Mi as badly as the Seok brothers have.
* ''Film/ManOfTaiChi'': [[BigBad Donaka Mark]], a [[CorruptCorporateExecutive corrupt businessman]] and violence aficionado who runs an underground fight ring, and sells his audience, not on the fights themselves, but on the chance to watch a good person cross the MoralEventHorizon by killing. When Chi-Tak, one of his fighters, refuses to kill his defeated opponent, Donaka enters the ring and personally breaks the neck of the loser. He then stabs Chi-Tak to death in the locker room, as his refusal to murder makes him a rat in Donaka's eyes. Discovering Tai Chi specialist Tiger Chen, Donaka convinces the government to sell off his master's temple, to make Tiger desperate for money; he then offers him a job in his fight ring. Placing cameras throughout Tiger's home, Donaka gives his audience the opportunity to watch Tiger's mental disintegration as the fights take their toll on his psyche. When Tiger, driven to the brink, still refuses to kill mercenary Uri Romanoff, Donaka executes Uri. He sends Tiger into another fight, with an Indonesian fighter; when Tiger tries to back out, Donaka gives the Indonesian the kill order. He also sends assassins after Detective Sung Jinshi, when she closes in on his ring. Ultimately found out by the police, Donaka flees and leaves his men in the lurch, only to reappear at Tiger's temple and force him into a Duel to the Death, declaring, "You owe me a life!" [[spoiler: When Tiger is forced to kill him, Donaka displays only a sense of satisfaction at having made Tiger a murderer.]]
* ''Film/ManosTheHandsOfFate'': TheMaster is an undead occultist worshiping the [[JerkassGods evil god Manos]] who happily performs {{human sacrifice}}s for his deity. He keeps a harem of wives which he [[DomesticAbuser disposes of as he sees fit]], burning one alive after growing bored of her to appease Manos. When a small family is lured into his keep by his servant Torgo, he first kills the family dog. He tries to kill Torgo for touching his wives in their sleep, [[{{Fingore}} hacking off Torgo's hand]] in the process. He does this not because it disgusts him, but because he considers them his alone. Then he forces both Michael's wife Margaret and his little daughter Debbie to become his new brides. He finally turns Michael himself into another brainless servant like Torgo before him to lure in more victims.
* ''Film/MarathonMan'': Dr. Christian Szell is a psychotic [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazi]] [[DepravedDentist dentist]] who loves his torture methods, as it is shown in the infamous "''Is it safe?''" sequence where he tortures Babe Levy with his dental instruments, digging into one of his cavities. He also has the particular skill to kill his victims with a retractable blade, making them die slowly and painfully.
* ''Film/TheMaskOfZorro'': Captain Harrison Love, the PsychoForHire [[TheDragon Dragon]]. Keeps the dismembered body parts of Alejandro's brother pickled in alcohol, which he drinks "based on an Incan custom". When he learns Zorro has the means to expose Don Rafael's plan (buying California with stolen gold), he calmly suggests destroying the mine to hide evidence of the theft...with the slaves who did the mining still inside, "to destroy ''all'' the evidence".
* ''Film/MenInBlack3'': Boris the Animal is by far the most murderous and sadistic villain to appear in the movies. He is introduced being freed from prison by [[MonsterFangirl his girlfriend]], whom he leaves to die when she is blown out into space, as well as another prisoner whom he promised to take with him. He travels back in time to eliminate K as personal revenge for destroying his arm when he was captured, causing a present day invasion by his race of {{Planet Loot|ers}}ing Boglodites to consume everyone on Earth. He kills a number of targets in the past, only refrains from killing ''his past self'' because he would be erased from time, and [[spoiler:at the end murders J's father out of spite for being thwarted by K.]]
* ''Film/{{Mindhunters}}'': The SerialKiller plays cat and mouse games with his victims by infiltrating a group of FBI profilers during a field mission to a deserted island with a makeshift town used as a training ground by the bureau, where they must solve a case involving a fictional serial killer called "the Puppeteer" organized by their supervisor. He sets the island up with an array of booby traps and puzzles to kill them while watching from within the group to turn them against each other and [[HuntingTheMostDangerousGame give himself good sport]]. His more cruel murders include a victim being slowly killed with liquid nitrogen from the feet up, and another one burned to death from inside through acid-laced cigarettes. He kidnaps the supervisor (who had been monitoring the group in secret) to an abandoned warehouse on the other side of the island where he proceeds to torture him for days before [[DeadGuyPuppet preparing his corpse and hanging it up for the trainees as a sort of perverse puppet.]] It's only after his identity as [[spoiler:Sarah's best friend Lucas]] is revealed that the true level of his manipulation becomes apparent, and he frankly admits he started his string of murders by [[SelfMadeOrphan killing his parents as a child]] and now simply enjoys a good hunt for new and more intelligent victims.
* ''Film/MissionImpossible'': The actions of Owen Davian in the third film (selling weapons to terrorists, killing agents by bombs implanted in their heads, [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown brutally beating up]] the defenseless hero in front of his equally defenseless wife) are bad enough, but what really sets him apart are his complete lack of any redeeming qualities and incapability of showing any other emotion than annoyance, anger, and a creepy combination of DullSurprise and sadistic glee . Hearing him count to ten while holding Ethan's wife hostage execution-style is pants-shitting scary.
-->''"What I did to your friend was....fun. It was fun."''
* ''Mr. Accident'': Duxton Chevalier is a surprisingly [[KnightOfCerebus serious and evil villain for a comedy film]]. He forces his brother to hand over his egg company by threatening to chop the leg off of his beloved dog and gets more sinister as the film goes on. It's revealed that he ''murdered'' his own brother after already getting the company, [[StuffedInTheFridge stuffing his body in a refrigerator]] and sending it through a recycling machine. At least viewers can ''assume'' [[FridgeHorror the brother is already dead]]. He then spikes the chicken feed with nicotine in order to produce nicotine-spiked eggs to get people addicted to the eggs so he can bring in the cash. He does love his girlfriend, Sunday - in the way of the homicidal StalkerWithACrush -kind. As a result, when he discovers Roger is her new boyfriend, he stuffs him and his best friend in another refrigerator and tries to repeat what he did with his brother with them ''still alive''. He then moves on to try to murder Sunday with an ax (which, frighteningly, he has on him at all times) after her rebuking his affections one last time. After Roger confronts him on his plan, asking if baby food is next, Duxton reacts by saying: "We're working on it." In the end, Duxton gets his comeuppance when Roger sends him falling to a messy DisneyVillainDeath.
* ''Film/TheMusketeer'': Febre as played by Tim Roth is a sadistic BloodKnight who lives for combat and destruction. [[YouKilledMyFather Murdering D'Artagnan's parents in front of him as a child]], Febre becomes the [[TheDragon pet psychopath]] of Cardinal Richeliu and carries out his unsavory work. Febre murders many who cross his path and incites a riot to create political tension. Febre blackmails the queen by threatening a child's life to lure her and the Duke of Buckingham together to murder them both and frame the King of France. Febre then reveals his true goal: to start a giant war between France, Spain and Britain simply for the laughs of all the lives that will be lost. When Richelieu [[EvenEvilHasStandards calls him mad for this]], Febre remarks this is the third time he's been called insane in a night. [[InsultBackfire "It must be so!"]]
* ''Film/{{Nightbreed}}'': The human Dr. Philip Decker is far more evil than any of the actual monsters in the film are. He masquerades as a [[PsychoPsychologist renowned psychologist]], but is actually a [[MalevolentMaskedMen masked]], [[KnifeNut bayonet-wielding]] serial killer who butchers families along with their children, women he comes across, and anyone else he can get his hands on. He sees himself as a Grim Reaper and gives himself the mission to stop 'breeders' from spreading their "filth" generation after generation. Captain Eigerman's comments towards Aaron Boone suggest that Decker is a [[ImAHumanitarian cannibal]] as well. After his psychiatric patient, Aaron, tells Decker his dreams of the Nightbreed civilization he frames Aaron for his crimes and gets Aaron killed by the police. When he learns of Aaron's resurrection and the existence of the Tribes of the Moon, he tries to exterminate the civilization of DarkIsNotEvil magical creatures as the ultimate extension of his mission to cleanse the world. A depraved and hypocritical KnightTemplar with an [[MisanthropeSupreme utter contempt for humans]] and Nightbreed alike, he earns the fear and disgust of everyone who's unlucky enough to see his true face.
* ''Film/{{Nighthawks}}'': Heymar Reinhardt, alias "Wulfgar," is a terrorist who manipulates everyone around him and kills the people who help him. Even his employers don't like him, as evidenced by one of them [[EvenEvilHasStandards refusing to pay him because several children were killed by his last attack at the beginning of the movie]]. He doesn't care who his actions injure or kill, even if the victims are children. He takes a frail old woman hostage at a subway, and before that, he killed the flight attendant he was staying with after she looked in his briefcase, calmly telling her that everything was okay, before killing her offscreen. Later on, he takes more hostages, including an eight-month-old infant. The only reason that he lets the infant live is because he knows that doing so would make him seem more employable to future or potential terrorist organizations, provided he can escape his current predicament alive.
* ''Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet'': Freddy Krueger, known as the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast "Bastard-Son-Of-A-Hundred-Maniacs"]], is the dream-invading, SerialKiller antagonist of the franchise who was a [[WouldHurtAChild child killer]] before he became a ghost. He kept a scrapbook of the "Have you seen this..." pictures of his child victims [[{{Squick}} and licked them]]. After his death he makes a deal with demonic forces to become, in his own words, "the stuff nightmares are made of." He uses his newfound powers to find increasingly creative ways to torture and murder his dozens of victims for his own amusement by using their primal fears against them, all the while cracking sick jokes. Then he harvests the teenagers' souls and keeps them in a perpetual AndIMustScream state inside his body to drain them for energy. Even in the utterly {{Narm}}-filled ''Film/FreddysDeadTheFinalNightmare,'' he had his moments, like when he taunts Tracy by appearing as her [[ParentalIncest sexually abusive father]] ("Give daddy some honey...no one has to know..."). Freddy is one of the few SlasherMovie killers with a distinct and talkative personality, and has always simply been a sadistic monster that extends his victims' suffering [[ForTheEvulz for its own sake]].
* ''Film/TheNightOfTheHunter'': Harry Powell, a serial killer and self-appointed preacher, gets out of prison and marries a bank robber's widow, believing her children know where the stolen money is hidden. When she overhears him asking the children about the money, he slits her throat as she lies in bed. Then, to finally get the children to tell him where the money is, he [[WouldHurtAChild threatens]] to [[{{Fingore}} cut off the son's fingers]], one by one, in front of the very young daughter.
* ''Literature/NoCountryForOldMen'': [[ProfessionalKiller Anton]] [[PsychoForHire Chigurh]] strangles a cop to death with cuffs; shoots both his employers in cold blood because he wanted the money they were chasing after; shoots a crying, surrendering man hiding in a shower; and has absolutely no qualms about killing innocent people, including a random old man for his car and a motorist that did nothing except pick up the main character. In his most senselessly cruel act, he murders the dead protagonist's wife only to fulfill a pointless promise to him. Some consider Carla Jean's refusal to accept his offer as a SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome, calling out his bullshit of giving his victims a 50-50 chance. Even ''knowing'' Anton Chigurh puts you in mortal danger. Like one line by Carson Wells points out: "Even if you gave him the money, he would still kill you just for...inconveniencing him." The worst thing about him is how he subjects his victims to a bizarre form of MindRape and actually convinces them to accept their death. It's easy to see why his partner-in-crime Carson Wells compares him to [[TheBlackDeath the Bubonic Plague]]. He faces no repercussions, which goes chillingly well along with the nature of his character: an unstoppable force of nature personified in human flesh. He does not enjoy these acts; he is just an evil psychopath with utterly no regard for the lives of anyone.
* ''Film/{{Nosferatu}}'': [[LooksLikeOrlok Count Orlok]], the eponymous "Nosferatu," one of the earliest examples of vampires in cinema in the film and one of the most terrifying. When Thomas Hutter arrives in the Transylvanian Carpathian Mountains, the locals speak Orlok's name in hushed whispers and don't dare to venture out at dark. Upon meeting Orlok, Hutter is attacked and the count tries to feed from him fatally before being repulsed. Hutter witnesses Orlok loading up several coffins to be transported across the sea, and Orlok later kills the crew of the schooner transporting him. The other coffins are revealed to also contain plague-bearing rats, and Orlok's arrival spreads a deathly plague all over Europe. He uses the plague as cover to feed on the people of Hutter's home village of Wisborg without suspicion before Hutter's innocent wife Ellen catches his eye. Orlok attacks Ellen, draining her to death in her HeroicSacrifice to keep him distracted before the sun rises to destroy him. Orlok had spawned a legion of imitators and while later vampires were portrayed as sophisticated, urbane and charming, Orlok is nothing more than a cunning, evil and ravenous beast that can barely pass as a human being.
* ''Film/{{Novecento}}'': Atilla is a sadistic fascist who lords over the workers on his estate, killing and imprisoning them as he wishes. Atilla massacres peasants to confiscate their lands, murders a wealthy widow to steal her estate and in his most vile action, rapes and then murders a little boy who was the son of one of his most fervent supporters.

[[folder:O - Q]]
* ''Film/TheOmen'' series has TheAntichrist himself, [[VillainProtagonist Damien Thorn]]. What's interesting about him is that at first, [[AntiAntiChrist he was horrified when he discovered that he was the Antichrist]], but as he grew older, he came to terms with his destiny, and he set out to do [[{{Satan}} his father's]] wishes. In the second film, Damien revealed to his cousin Mark that he was the son of the Devil, and asked him [[WeCanRuleTogether to join him in his attempt at world conquest]]. When Mark refused his offer, Damien murders him by introducing an aneurysm into his brain and later set his aunt and uncle on fire at the end of the film. In the final Omen film, ''The Final Conflict'', we are introduced to a grown up Damien, and we also discover that he became the Ambassador of Great Britain. At this point in his life, he had fully come to terms with his role as the Antichrist, and any redeeming factors that he had in the previous films had vanished at this point in time. When he realized that the Second Coming was on the horizon, he makes a decree that every baby boy that was born on March 24, 1982, [[NiceJobBreakingItHerod be sentenced to death]] as a means of stopping the Christ child from being reborn. Along the way, he gets romantically involved with a female journalist, whom he then rapes, and he also manipulated her son into following him. He later uses said son as a [[HumanShield human shield]] when Father De Carlo attempted to use the Dagger of Megiddo against him. Damien then tries to strangle the priest to death. Damien also manipulated Barbara into killing her husband with an iron, and she unintentionally helps Damien in his attempt to kill the Christ child by killing her baby.
* ''Film/OnceUponATimeInTheWest'': [[TheDragon Frank]] (Creator/HenryFonda) is a former bandit turned enforcer for the railroad company. During the film's opening sequence, he and his men gun down the [=McBain=] family, with Frank shooting down the last survivor, [[WouldHurtAChild a small boy]], himself, before nailing a duster to the door so that local {{bandito}} chief [[AntiHero Cheyenne]] will be blamed for the crime. When he reports to his boss, [[EvilCripple Mr. Morton]], [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain Morton]] says that he only wanted the [=McBain=]s scared. Frank's response? "[[PsychoForHire People scare better when they're dying]]." When Morton tries to cut a deal with [=McBain=]'s newly arrived widow (ex-HookerWithAHeartOfGold Jill), [[DragonInChief Frank]] sabotages the plan, takes Jill hostage, [[RapeAsDrama has his way with her]], and forces her to sell her land at an auction, positioning his own men there to intimidate the bidders. The arrival of Harmonica, the film's protagonist, ruins this plan, and sets the stage for TheReveal of Frank's [[MoralEventHorizon worst crime]]. When Harmonica was a boy, Frank made his older brother stand on his shoulders, and put a noose around the brother's neck. When Harmonica collapsed from exhaustion, his brother was hanged. To add an appropriately sadistic touch, Frank placed a harmonica between the younger brother's lips and instructed him to "[[KickTheDog play your ever lovin' brother a tune]]." No reason is ever given for his actions, and Frank has ultimately gone down in film history as one of the most vicious villains of his era.
* ''Literature/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest'': While initially appearing as a caring figure, [[BattleaxeNurse Nurse Ratched]] is anything but. She would remorselessly and cruelly manipulate anyone to keep her control over the virtually harmless mental patients all while [[VillainWithGoodPublicity maintaining her motherly image to her superiors and the outsiders to the mental institution]]. She then [[MoralEventHorizon goes over the line]] when she convinces Billy that she'll tell his mother all about his "bad behavior," knowing full well what effect that would have on his mental health; he commits suicide. Nurse Ratched was also one of the employees who gave [=McMurphy=], the film's protagonist, a lobotomy; [[MercyKill Bromden later put him out of his misery]]. Ratched was so monstrously evil that Louise Fletcher (the actress who played her) herself was reported as being uncomfortable with watching the film because of her character's presence in it.
* ''Out Of the Furnace'': Harlan Degroat is a violent [[CorruptHick backwoods meth boss]] who begins the film at a drive-in movie with a date. When she thinks him having food poisoning is funny, Degroat chokes her and beats her before pummeling a good Samaritan coming to her aid nearly to death. Later, when Degroat is offered the chance to make money by a man who owes him named Petty via Petty's fighter buddy Rodney taking a dive in a bare-knuckle fight so Degroat can take the winnings, Degroat ambushes them and has them both killed simply out of spite, pride and because Rodney did a bit too well before he took the dive. When Rodney's brother Russ tries to trap Degroat later, Degroat executes the unarmed, helpless bartender in the area before trying to flee.
* ''Film/PanicRoom'': Raoul is one of three robbers who invade the new home of a mother and her daughter, from the start he proves himself far more cruel and murderous than both his comrades. He has no reservations about killing people or even children to get the bearer bonds stored in the safe room. He turns up the gas so Meg and Sarah almost suffocate and doesn't give a crap that his associate Junior almost burned to death as a result. When Junior tries to cut his losses and leave Raoul shoots him in the head, then shoots the corpse again just out of spite. He threatens to kill Burnham too if he doesn't go through with the job. He beats Meg's ex-husband Stephen almost to death to get them to leave the safe room, and then intends to kill her daughter if she tells the police. After they beat Raoul up it gets personal, as he prefers to murder the whole family rather than escape with the money.
* ''Film/PansLabyrinth'': Captain Vidal is far more terrifying than the fantastical monsters in the same work. Vidal first shows his nastiness when two poachers, a father and son, are brought to him in the dead of night, his men suspecting them of being rebels against the regime. He beats the younger man's face in with a bottle simply for defending his father against Vidal's accusations before shooting them both with a vague air of boredom and pleasure. When the men are proven not to be rebels, Vidal shows no remorse, only belittling his men to be more careful next time. At one point, Vidal captures a rebel with a horrible stutter and cheerfully shows the man his [[TortureTechnician torture instruments]] before offering to let him go if he can clearly count to three. He fails. Vidal is married to the young heroine's mother solely so she'll bear him an heir, and shows no concern over the possible death of his wife in childbirth. When the doctor attending her gives the aforementioned stuttering torture victim a mercy kill, Vidal coldly guns him down. At the film's end, [[spoiler: Vidal's stepdaughter Ofelia tries to rescue her baby brother, but Vidal catches her and [[WouldHurtAChild promptly shoots her fatally]].]] It's no accident that Vidal's place at the head of the table in the dinner scene parallels that of the Pale Man; each qualifies as a HumanoidAbomination in his own way, one literal, one figurative.
* ''Film/{{Passenger 57}}'': Charles Rane is a TerroristWithoutACause who enjoys causing mayhem ForTheEvulz. When being transported aboard a plane, Rane murders the agents guarding him to hijack the jet. When the hero, Cutter, tries to stop him, Rane takes a hostage, coaxing the man's name and the fact [[IHaveAFamily he has a daughter from him]]. Rane calmly informs Cutter: "This is Douglas. He has a daughter who loves him. and she until your interference, had a father." before executing the man simply to show his point. Rane later tries to have all of the civilian hostages executed when the government won't comply with his demands.

He proceeds to take one messenger, TheHero Benjamin Martin's eldest son Gabriel, to be hanged, Gabriel's brother intervenes, for which Tavington callously guns him down and sneers "stupid boy" at his shell-shocked father. Tavington's savagery earns him furious rebukes from General Cornwallis, until Tavington convinces the general to allow him free reign, bargaining himself to be a new landowner as his methods will render him persona non grata back in Britain. Tavington corrals a town full of innocent people in a church when none of them will talk about the location of Martin's forces. When he gets his answer, Tavington has the town locked in the church and then [[MoralEventHorizon has it set afire]], adding the forgiveness of the people is between them and God. Tavington later kills Gabriel in combat and when facing Benjamin in a DuelToTheDeath mocks him for being a lesser man.
* ''Film/ThePeopleUnderTheStairs'': Mommy and Daddy are a pair of [[BrotherSisterIncest incestuous siblings]] known as cutthroat landlords in a poor neighborhood, evicting tenants ruthlessly.

When Alice discovers the truth and rejects Mommy as her mother, Mommy tries to kill her, screaming at her to burn in hell.

The Tall Man roams from town to town, leaving death and destruction in his wake for the purpose of creating corpses that he can use in his undead army for eventual world domination. The Tall Man seems to fully understand human feeling as he murders the innocent family of Reggie Bannister [[ForTheEvulz for no real reason, solely to hurt him]]. He tortures the young hero Mike and killed his older brother, Jody, as well as Mike's girlfriend while transforming the former into one of his magic spheres and the latter into one of his undead servants. Sadistic, relentless and brutal, the Tall Man has remained an icon in horror for his monstrosity.

** Sgt. Bob Barnes, in one scene, believing that some villagers are aiding Viet Cong soldiers, he shoots a defiant woman (the village chief's wife) in the head. When the murdered woman's daughter cries out, Barnes takes the child at gunpoint, threatening to shoot her next if the villagers do not reveal the whereabouts of the Viet Cong. Worse yet, during a firefight with the enemy, he murders Sgt. Elias, the only one with the balls to do something about his atrocious acts all of the soldiers have witnessed.
** Bunny is a sadistic little psychopath who beats a crippled Vietnamese boy to death just for fun, and does the same to the victim's elderly mother, before leading the gang-rape of a young girl in the bushes (which is interrupted by Chris).
---> '''Bunny''': You know, Junior, some of the things we done, man, I don't feel like we done something wrong.
* ''Film/PlunkettAndMacleane'': Thief Taker General Chance is a sadistic, brutal thug of a law enforcement officer. Chance has a liking for a good EyeScream and gouges out the eyes of those he captures, just to amuse himself before he causes them more pain. Chance kills a wealthy man to get to the man's daughter and tries to force himself on her before deciding it isn't painful enough for her and resolves to wait until after he has her love interest hanged.
* ''Film/{{Pompeii}}'': [[CorruptPolitician Roman Senator Corvus]] is a [[SmugSnake sneering]], arrogant [[AristocratsAreEvil aristocrat]] who feels he can do whatever he wants. Starting the film with a brutal slaughter of a Celtic tribe, Corvus murders the mother of the young hero Milo, though the boy escapes and later becomes a slave at the city of Pompeii. When Milo becomes attached to the Roman noblewoman Cassia, whom Corvus lusts for, Corvus promises to spare him for Cassia's sake, but has him and another Gladiator named Atticus chained in the Arena to be slaughtered by Roman soldiers to recreate Corvus's victory over the Celts. When Cassia protests, Corvus tells her he simply wants her as a possession that he can break and that she will "stay broken," to beg and crawl as he demands. Corvus blackmails her family into agreeing to the marriage by threatening to accuse them of treason and murders Cassia's father when Mt. Vesuvius erupts. To get to safety, Corvus kills innocent civilians and even abandons his loyal [[TheDragon dragon]] Proculus while attempting to abduct Cassia and escape.
* ''Film/ThePoughkeepsieTapes'': The Water Street Butcher, AKA “Ed,” who is one of the most prolific and brutal {{Serial Killer}}s in the history of film. He is given no backstory, but as far as the police could tell, one day he just started killing people. Taking great pride in his murders, the Butcher had logged each one of them on camera, and by the time the police finally found out where he lived, he had already made 800 tapes showing the killings, with several thousand hours of film chronicling his sadism. Watching the tapes, the police soon learned that nothing appeared to be off-limits for the Butcher; he proves very early in the film that he WouldHurtAChild when he knocks an 8-year-old girl unconscious before abducting and killing her, and is implied to have raped her too. His sadistic streak continues when, posing as a hitchhiker, he kills a man who picks him up, drugs his wife, cuts the man's head off, gives the woman a C-section, puts the man's head inside of her womb, sews her back up, then wakes her up to film her reaction. Possibly the worst thing he does is to a young woman named Cheryl; he kidnaps her and keeps her as his prisoner and slave, physically and mentally tormenting her non-stop for his own amusement, and forcing her to commit some of the murders. When her mother gives a heart-felt plea for him to return Cheryl, he taunts her right to her face. Around this time, he decides to take up necrophilia. At one point, an innocent retired police officer is put to death under strong evidence that he was the Butcher, but it turns out that the real killer fabricated the evidence. He did it not to get away scot-free, but just to get the police to kill one of their own. Eventually, though the killer got away, Cheryl is found, a full 8-years after her original abduction, and is so broken that she can’t interact with the world around her. She is convinced that her “master” will one day come back for her, and kills herself soon after. Then the Butcher digs up her body and runs off with it. While the crimes listed are shown in the most detail, the killer is also shown committing many other murders on the tapes throughout the film. The Butcher appears to only kill for his own amusement and sadistic pleasure, and sees no reason to ever stop.
* ''Film/TheProfessional'': [[RabidCop Detective]] Norman [[AxCrazy Stansfield]] is a [[DirtyCop DEA Agent]] who takes advantage of his position to terrorize, extort and kill who he wants. On a drug bust, Stansfield decides to get high on drugs and, while [[WickedCultured playing classical music]], slaughters the whole family, including the couple's baby son. His only emotion over it is how he'll explain the death to his superiors. Stansfield, when confronted by the couple's 12-year-old daughter later, think that she's there to kill him, but when she can't bring herself to and breaks down crying, Stansfield asks her if she enjoys living. When she says she does, Stansfield makes clear [[WouldHurtAChild his intent to kill her]], saying he takes no pleasure in taking the life of someone who doesn't value their own.
* ''Film/PromNight'': Mary Lou Maloney from the second and third films was just an AlphaBitch in life, manipulating boys to her own ends. When she used two boys to become prom queen, one of them, Billy, decides to retaliate with a prank, but Mary gets killed in a freak accident. Thirty years later, her spirit awakens when a girl named Jess takes a gem out of her crown, and as a result gets killed by Mary's spirit.

As it turns out Vicki was dating Billy's son Craig, and Billy was the new principal, she uses this to plan to get revenge on Billy through his son and taunts him about it. Later she kills Vicki's other friend for Monica for suspecting something is going on with Vicki. While getting ready for prom, she tries to seduce Vicki's father and kills her mother. At the prom, Mary cheats the vote by killing a boy named Josh, who's running the prom votes. Billy is forced to shoot Vicki but that just gives Mary physical form.

When Alex rejects Mary again, she plans to kill Sarah at the prom. When Alex rushes to save her, Mary agrees to spare her, if he goes to hell with her and be her prom king for eternity.

She cares about nothing but her own gratification and is feared and hated by the other Ancient vampires (her closest relatives) for her indiscriminate slaughter of humans and vampires alike.

* ''Film/{{Rampage}}'': [[VillainProtagonist Bill Williamson]] takes sadistic pleasure in shooting up his small town. He offers some justification by speaking about overpopulation, and how we should kill people to help curb the consumption of resources, but his attitude toward his victims shows that this is merely a shallow pretext.

After he is finished, he murders his supposed best friend and frames him for the rampage, while he takes the thousands of dollars he stole during his attack and skips town with the intention of funding more rampages.
* ''Film/RedEye'': Jackson Rippner is an unscrupulous contractor [[PsychoForHire hiring himself out]] to terrorist networks to assist in toppling governments and [[ProfessionalKiller high-profile assassinations]]. He uses [[ManipulativeBastard his skills of manipulation]] instead of weapons because he's much better at it. His latest target is a renowned US official, whom he plans to blow up along with his wife and children because his bosses wanted to send a message. He needs Lisa, a Miami hotel manager, to change the official's room on her authority to make the kills possible. He stalks Lisa for weeks to learn everything about her, and then arranges to be on the same red eye flight with her and gain her confidence initially.

A greedy FatBastard whose only stated desire is to become rich, he casually abuses everyone around him, [[ChronicVillainy never passing up an opportunity to do bad]].

* ''Film/ReservoirDogs'': The psychopathic Mr. Blonde is hinted to be unequivocally callous throughout the first half of the movie, even though he seems calmer and more clear-headed than his partners-in-crime, who seem wary of him. Before the first scene, he has turned a simple robbery into a massacre and it's told in a flashback he had a history of raping "punks" in prison. Right before Mr. Blonde's infamous torture of the cop, we feel positively uneasy when the hardened criminal Mr. White dreads leaving the cop alone with him, which is completely justified, as the top page quote proves.

* ''Franchise/RoboCop'':
** ''Film/RoboCop1987'':
*** Clarence Boddicker has a blood-soaked criminal career. It's more play than work for him and his sadistically joyful gang of friends. [[CruelAndUnusualDeath The cruel way he and his men shoot up Murphy]] is only the tip of the iceberg. There are moments where he makes wisecracks like an evil version of VideoGame/DukeNukem, but these are usually followed by displays of brutality. For example, his most famous line among the ''[=RoboCop=]'' fandom comes when he breaks into a man's house to find him enjoying the company of several women, to which he comments, "Bitches, leave." He then proceeds to shoot the man in both knees, leave a live HE grenade next to him and calmly walks out.
*** Dick Jones is as bad as Boddicker. Not only is he a CorruptCorporateExecutive, but also it's revealed that Clarence Boddicker is working for him from the very beginning.

** ''Film/RoboCop3'': [=McDagget=] killed Lewis without any reason. He convinces the public that the Rehabs give the people of Old Detroit new houses (actually putting them in death camps) and that [=RoboCop=] is a criminal.

* ''Film/RobRoy'': Archibald "Archie" Cunningham is a seemingly harmless, foppish dandy with a penchant for gambling and a desire to make his way in the world; [[BaitTheDog underneath that is a cunning, heartless and sadistic man]] stopping at nothing to feed his greed and vanity. Archibald demonstrates his nastier side [[NotSoHarmlessVillain proving his incredible sword talents]] and toying with his opponent throughout the fight. Archibald solves his money trouble by ambushing and murdering the man the honorable chief Rob Roy of the [=MacGregor=] Clan sent to deliver a sizable amount of money to Cunningham's patron, the Marquise of Montrose, stealing the money and framing Rob as a thief. Archibald leads an attack on Rob's home, slaughtering his friends, and brutally raping his wife, later commenting she was "far sweeter forced than most women are willing."

* ''Film/TheRock'': [[CoDragons Captains Frye and Darrow]] try to extort money by threatening San Francisco with DeadlyGas. While [[BigBad their superior]] AntiVillain [[WellIntentionedExtremist General Hummel]] wants to distribute the money to families of soldiers whose deaths went unrecognized and without compensation, they only [[{{Greed}} want it for themselves]]. When it becomes apparent Hummel is bluffing, they act swift to remove Hummel from command and eventually kill him while proceeding with the attack. Even when it becomes apparent they've lost, Frye and Darrow try to send a rocket at the city armed with poison gas to kill every civilian they possibly can and attempt to kill the 81 tourists they have locked in Alcatraz to ensure a lack of witnesses.

* From the live-action version of ''Film/RurouniKenshin'':
** Kanryu Takeda likes to pass himself off as a successful businessman and an example of what the Japanese can accomplish in the new era of the Meiji. However, below that he is a oppressive drug lord who takes glee in finding, then murdering, police informants and putting them in the open so people could find. He also directly murders through Jin-E a department of the police while chasing after [[DamselInDistress Megumi]] [[TheMedic Takani]] who he had forced to make his brand new opium. To test the new opium as well he kidnapped users off the street, locked them in his secret room in his office, and saw how far they degraded while under his new drug, all with a smile on his face. However his worst act is when he learns Megumi is taking shelter in the Kamiya Dojo and after Kenshin refused to be bought by him: he poisons a district all around the Kamiya Dojo. If it weren't for Megumi, there'd be hundreds, if not thousands of deaths directly on his hands.
** Jin-E Udo seems like a normal PsychoForHire, but he doesn't murder and kill for profit. He just likes to kill. When he pulled himself out of the mountain of corpses he accumulated in the Battle of Toba Fushimi, he took up Kenshin's killing sword as his own. For ten years, he's committed murders in Kenshin's name-calling himself Hitokiri Battosai to strike fear into people. When he storms the police department on the trail of Megumi Takani, he could have easily just evaded the officers. He didn't; he went and purposely started a horrific attack on the station and left a gory tapestry of death, even messing with one officer with his 'Shino Ippo' to force him to stand still as Jin-E [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impaled him slowly to savor it]]. In the last act of the film, he kidnapped Kaoru while Kenshin was saving Megumi from Kanryu. When Kenshin showed up, he first ''kicked'' Kaoru down a stone staircase to make sure she'd hit every step just to piss Kenshin off, and then using the Shino Ippo, he paralyzed her lungs. Again, just to piss Kenshin off. When Kaoru broke through it with her own spirit and after Kenshin had shattered his elbow, Jin-E has the last laugh by stabbing himself just to spite Kenshin and spit on his ThouShallNotKill code.
* ''Satan's Little Helper'': This [[SlidingScaleOfComedyAndHorror horror-comedy's]] [[NoNameGiven unnamed]], [[MalevolentMaskedMen masked]], [[SilentAntagonist silent]] killer dressed up as {{Satan}}, unlike most silent horror villains, has a clear personality, which he shows by communicating through various gestures and body language. "Satan" manipulates a boy named Dougie into aiding him in a killing spree, with Dougie thinking it's all make believe. Over the course of the film, he kills many people in creative and sadistic ways, even burning down an entire police station and poisoning the drinks at a Halloween party, all of this seemingly ForTheEvulz. At the end, he tricks Dougie’s sister Jenna and her mother into killing Jenna’s boyfriend Alex, who he had knocked out and placed in his costume.
* ''Savage Messiah'', a Canadian film, portrays Roch "Moses" Thériault as an utter sociopath who nevertheless has a harem of wives and children all begging to him. The DissonantSerenity when he casually dismembers one of his wives is eerie. Roch abuses all the members of his cult in horrific ways (AbusiveParents doesn't even begin to define it) and yet gets away with it because [[ManipulativeBastard he is just that manipulative]]. ''And'' he convinces the third-party researchers that come to view his cult that he's innocent.
* ''Film/{{Saw}}'': Detective Mark Hoffman is Jigsaw's second apprentice and surpasses both his WellIntentionedExtremist mentor and AxCrazy BrokenBird alumnus Amanda in evil how the lines he is willing to cross. Unlike Jigsaw's traps, which tended to give a chance for survival, Hoffman places his victims into traps simply to kill them to satisfy his own sadism and cruelty. He frames Agent Peter Strahm for his crimes and then arranges his horrible death by being crushed by compacting walls. To cover his tracks, Hoffman begins murdering innocent people and then goes on a rampage in the police station, killing every officer he finds before placing his rival and Jigsaw's wife Jill in a trap to kill her horribly.
* ''Film/ScannersIITheNewOrder'': [[TheDragon Peter Drak]] is one of the psychic "scanners" who is captured and enlisted by the DirtyCop Commander Forrester in the opening. He's a psychopath who just wants his drug fix and [[PsychoForHire enjoys killing people]]. He starts the movie using his mind to blow up an arcade hall, the lack of victims only being due to everyone inside escaping in time. He kills the police chief by [[PsychicAssistedSuicide compelling him]] to eat his own gun, kills the hero David's elderly mother [[ForTheEvulz just because]] and makes sure the sheriff's office hears him shooting her over the phone, needlessly kills Forrester's partner Gelson while the guy is mind-controlled by David by [[YourHeadAsplode blowing Gelson's head up]] and cackling with glee afterwards, and repeatedly tries to devour the hero's mind not out of any loyalty to his pusher but for pleasure. He doesn't even seem bothered that Forrester would throw him aside when he outlives his usefulness, as he just enjoys the power rush of mutilating and murdering people with his mind more.
* ''Film/{{Scarface}}'': [[BigBad Alejandro Sosa]] (also in [[VideoGame/ScarfaceTheWorldIsYours the game]]) demonstrates his monstrosity by ordering the killing of a man along with his wife and children, just so he wouldn't implicate him and his friends on national TV. Tony Montana, for all the drugs and killings he's involved in, [[EvenEvilHasStandards absolutely refuses to hurt innocents]] and blows the brains out of Sosa's assassin for trying to blow them up. Unfortunately for Tony, Sosa is not happy and Tony is killed in a firefight with Sosa's men during the movie's climax.
* ''Film/SchindlersList'': Amon Goeth is the AxCrazy Nazi Lieutenant in charge of the liquidation of the Krakow Jewish ghetto and is the overseer of the Plaszow concentration camp. Goeth's true nature is first exposed when he encounters a Jewish forewoman protesting that the foundation of the structure in the camp they're building is unsound, and this will lead to the building's eventual collapse. Goeth's response is for her to be killed in front of the other workers. [[KickTheDog He then orders his men to follow the dead woman's instructions anyway]]. This is merely the first instance in a long line of pointless and unpredictable violence from Goeth. Some of his most infamous crimes are shooting prisoners with a sniper rifle for sport, personally killing twenty-five men in a rage after one man from their barracks managed to escape from his work detail, and laughing at crying parents as he sends away trainloads of their children to be gassed. Every time a possible flicker of humanity is exposed in Goeth, it is quickly subverted then extinguished. When Oskar Schindler tries to convince Goeth that true power is mercy, Goeth briefly tries out being merciful, even sparing the life of a Jewish boy who was unable to clean the stains in Goeth's bathtub. Then, on a whim, he decides to kill the boy anyway. When he finds himself attracted to his Jewish maid, Helen, he attempts to clumsily come on to her, only to eventually blame her for his own sexual feelings and savagely beat her afterwards. Following the events of the film, the viewer gets an impression that Goeth is a pure sociopath driven only by his erratic whims. Ultimately Goeth's only able to ape the basic mannerisms of a human being and finds himself [[EvilCannotComprehendGood unable to understand basic compassion and human decency]] when confronted with it.
* ''Franchise/{{Scream}}'':
** [[spoiler:Roman Bridger]], Ghostface in the third film is revealed as the instigator of the entire series. He's actually Sidney's half-brother, born of Maureen Prescott being raped during her Hollywood career. He decries his birth mother as a whore and stalks her extramarital liaisons in Woodboro. He uses the evidence to mastermind Billy and Stu's original killing spree in the first movie, killing Maureen and their own friends, and lets them take the fall. He grows jealous of Sidney's fame as a survivor and sets out to frame her for his own kills. He disguises himself as [[spoiler:a low-budget movie director]] and kills off the ''[[ShowWithinAShow Stab 3]]'' movie's crew while tormenting Sidney with mind games of her traumatic past. He tries to pass himself off as tragic victim who is lashing out at the world, but Sidney points out that he's self-deluding himself and simply enjoys killing people, prompting him to fly into a rage. [[spoiler:His sole attempt to connect with Sidney during his death is subverted when seconds later he gets up to try to kill them all again.]]
** [[spoiler:Sidney's cousin Jill Roberts]], Ghostface in the fourth film, is a deranged copycat killer who wipes out her own friends in a twisted attempt to become Sidney and hijack her fame and is easily the most AxCrazy of the Ghostfaces so far. She manipulates her lovestruck friend [[spoiler:Charlie]] into helping her, and [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness then kills him when he's no longer of use to her]] so she can be the sole survivor and the center of attention. She even has her own mother killed simply to better emulate Sidney's life with a dead mother. She kills [[spoiler:her boyfriend Trevor]] to take the blame for the massacre, and then tries to kill Sidney to complete her status as the new "valiant Ghostface survivor". When she realizes that Sidney survived after they've both been taken to the hospital, she goes on a final murder spree in a last attempt to secure her fame.
* ''Film/ASerbianFilm'': If you were to look up the term "Sexual sadist" in a dictionary, chances are Vukmir would be pictured right next to the definition.

Vukmir forces the hero to rape his wife and son, murders a bunch of people, has people raped, has a child raped and kills other people. Even in his last, twisted moments on Earth at the hands of the protagonist, he revels in the violence surrounding him.
* ''Film/{{Se7en}}'': John Doe is possibly the most twisted and disturbing SerialKiller in film. A KnightTemplar who believed himself to be TheScourgeOfGod, Doe targeted people whom he deemed to embody one of the SevenDeadlySins then [[PoeticSerialKiller horribly murdered them in a way that reflected their vice]]. He forced Gluttony at gunpoint to eat until he passed out then kicked him to make his stomach rupture; bound Sloth to a bed and kept him [[AndIMustScream alive and immobile for a year]], rendering him a mindless, emaciated husk; forced Greed to decide which body part is most expendable then had the victim cut it off himself; [[RapeByProxy forced a man at gunpoint to rape]] [[DeathBySex Lust to death with a bladed codpiece]]; and mutilated Pride's face, giving her the choice between calling the hospital and saving herself or committing suicide to avoid living her life disfigured, knowing that she'd chose the latter. However, it's with his final murder that Doe proves just how completely hypocritical he really is when he murders a woman completely innocent of any sin, Detective Mills's wife. Feeling envious of Mills's "normal" life, Doe decapitated his wife then arranged for her head to be delivered to Mills outside of the city. Goading Mills with his crime and revealing that she was pregnant, Doe succeeded in getting Mills to murder him in revenge, making Mills the embodiment of Wrath and leading to Mills's arrest and the ruination of his life. [[MisanthropeSupreme Disgusted by all of humanity and its excesses]], Doe tortured and murdered to show everyone just how awful [[CrapsackWorld the world they live in truly is]].

* ''Film/TheShawshankRedemption''

When Andy tries to fight off the latest attempt, Bogs threatens to shiv Andy through the skull if he doesn't give Bogs's buddy oral sex. When Andy bluffs him out of it by playing on his ignorance, he beats Andy straight into the infirmary instead.
** Warden Norton seems like a stern but affable prison bureaucrat before he reveals the true extent of his immorality and corruption. He sets up a scheme to underbid public construction projects with cheap prison labor and pockets the buy-off money from the desperate private contractors he blackmails, using Andy's financial knowledge to launder the illegal money. When a new inmate named Tommy has proof of Andy's innocence, Norton has him shot in the yard by the captain of the guard and the murder passed off as an escape attempt. He throws Andy in isolation for a month, then threatens to destroy everything Andy has built to improve Shawshank over the past 20 years in prison and make sure that he'll be handed over to the rapists again, before giving the half-mad Andy another month in isolation just to think about it.
* ''Film/SherlockHolmesAGameOfShadows'': Professor Moriarty, a criminal mastermind completely devoid of empathy, created an elaborate scheme of an even grander scale than Blackwood's--and he has a personal grudge against Holmes himself. He has no qualms about threatening two completely innocent people, Watson and his new wife Mary, over Holmes's interference in their plans, and destroyed a train in an attempt to kill them. He poisoned and killed Irene Adler when she tried to quit being his personal gopher, massacred a large number of Simza's gypsy tribe as they tried to escape an ill-fated raid on his compound, drove a prideful French revolutionary to suicide, and tortured Holmes (with the full intent to kill him) with a meat hook while humming Schubert. Though his plans to jump-start WW 1 are never fully enacted (due to a botched assassination attempt and his own death at the hands of Holmes), his sadism and complete sociopathy is more than enough to make him the most monstrous criminal Holmes has ever encountered.

He kills the main character Jonathan's mother, brother, and sister after his police detective father gets on Pinker's trail. He kills a handful of cops who try to capture him in his lair. He murders Jonathan's girlfriend in her bathroom.

Even she realizes toward the end that the doll is of secondary importance to Roat...he enjoys doing evil [[ForTheEvulz for evil's sake]] above all.

* ''Film/{{Wishmaster}}'': The first Djinn. We only see three members of his race (only the first two films share continuity, and the Djinn in the third film is killed at the end, so it seems that the last two films feature completely different ones)but comparing them together, the one in the first two films is by far the worst of them all, and especially evil even for his race. He sees people as nothing but vermin and toys for his sick amusement. Most of the wishes he grants result in people dying horrific BodyHorror-related deaths.

When Ichi manages to fight back and kills most of Mangoro's men, Mangoro still tries to order his men to kill Ichi by [[BadBoss threatening their lives if they refuse]] and when this fails, rushes from house to house, threatening each peasant to give him shelter from Ichi's wrath.
* ''Film/{{Zwartboek}}'' ("Black Book"): In a movie about the SS and anti-Nazi resistance in [=WW2=], it's hard to pin down a single specific monster, but [[spoiler: Dr. Hans Akkermans]] sent, for a cut of their worldly belongings, hundreds, perhaps thousands of Jews, resistance fighters, anti-Nazis, and just plain unfortunate people to their deaths at the hands of resident SS attache Franken. Through a ruse conducted as an escape to freedom, [[spoiler:he and Van Gein secure safe passage for them into neutral or Allied territory, but step off before the boats leave, pledging to bring other refugees safe passage. Shortly after leaving the dock, the boats are machine-gunned by a Nazi patrol, their bodies looted, and the spoils divided between the conspirators]]. Towards the end of the movie, [[spoiler: Akkermans begins to kill off the conspirators, at first appearing to have had a heroic attack of conscience, only to later reveal he just didn't wish to share the wealth. Later on, he tries to kill the female protagonist to silence her knowledge of the goings-on and hold onto his status as a war hero]]. She escapes, gives the evidence to the sole surviving resistance member, and they kill him before he can escape, but his reputation escapes intact for an indeterminate amount of time afterwards. He seems caring and respectable, but it all was act which got innumerable amounts of people killed solely so he could [[{{Greed}} steal their heirlooms and melt them or sell them]].
