Opinion: Underrated Villains

The movie villain.
Usually the best part of any story.
There’s been tons of great ones:

Darth Vader
The Joker
Hannibal Lector
The shark from Jaws
That husky man from misery

Let’s shine a light on some villains that, for whatever reason don’t get as much love.

THE BLUE MEANIES – YELLOW SUBMARINE
These music hating sons-a-bitches creeped me out when i was a kid.

ROMEO – PERDITA DURANGO
Whenever someone talks about Javier Bardem’s rogues gallery, they always mention Anton Chigurh or Silva but Romeo is 100% more terrifying than both of them combined.

THE CHILD SNATCHER – CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG
Nope.

THE PSYCHOPATH – ANGST
Erwin Leder gives one of the greatest performances in cinema history as the unnamed psychopath in angst
He makes Michael Rooker in Henry look like Mr. Rogers.

THE COLLECTOR – DEMON KNIGHT
Billy Zane is amazing. Nuff said.

POOH BEAR – THE SALTON SEA
The movie isn’t the greatest but the villain reenacts the JFK assassination with pigeons.

KOPFRKINGL–CREMATOR
This black (I’m talking pitch black) comedy is one of the greatest films you’ve probably never seen.
Rudolf Hrusínský gives an amazing performance as a cremator who believes cremation relieves earthly suffering and sets out to save the world.
