    And you call that a villan?
    This is supposed to be a happy occasion. Let's not argue about who killed who

    I'd like to throw in one more contestant that may outweigh Hopkins if it wasn't for the fact that he isn't really a 'villian'.

    The devil is never defeated.

    Vanity, my favourite sin...

    Pacino rules.

    Hannibal was overdoing it when serving brains to its owner, that's a lack of class.

    Pacino kills by sticking his finger in holy water. Now THAT is style!

    Hannibal Lecter, yes, Al Pacino's "Advocate" devil also... both good, and probably get my votes as well, on a serious note.
    However, I've always had a soft spot for Billy Zane's devil in "Demon Night" (Tales from the Crypt).

    "If it makes ya feel good, do it!"

    I don't believe hannibal was in "Red Dragon" Xev. they'll have to find some other actor to play the psychopath, otherwise it'll get a little samish.

    Best all round bad guy across several movies? Gary Oldman. He can do the cultured bit, too.

    for a long time not seen previously in sciforums we can all agree that overall

    Al Pacino and Hannibal are the two greatest movie villians of all time

    Squid - Hopkins plays Hannibal who was in Red Dragon, just he wasn't as key a character as in Silence or Hannibal. You can probably download the ad if you want.

    Oohhh I got it!

    Gary Oldman in True Romance. He even creeped me out, and I rarely get creeped out.

    Alan Rickman as the Interrogator

    Alan Rickman's Interrogator in Closet Land is among the finest evil performances ever. Anyone who has seen this film recalls Rickman sliding around the floor, hopping around the room, playing two roles at once to confuse his blindfolded victim. And a scene in which the Interrogator seems to mourn his own past ... a near-perfect performance overall.

    Photos of German stage production of Closet Land, ca. 1999.

    Set designs by T. Lefevre dated 5/2000, for stage production of Closet Land.

    (Note: Theatre links are merely for the heck of it; Rickman did not perform onstage, as far as I know.)

    AVI clip of Rickman and Stowe--"The Interrogator's Creed". (Note: AVI link is unstable; I've gotten it once out of three requests.)

    Closet Land page from which the above was taken.

    Thespian Net, 3 images of Rickman from Closet Land.

    Review of Closet Land at Cybamuse's Alan Rickman pages.

    It's a truly classic performance.

    thanx,
    Tiassa

    Also Tim Curry

    It hit me as I was finishing the Rickman post that Tim Curry has a couple of classic villains on his resume:

    Frank N. Furter in the Rocky Horror Picture Show was among the most unique villains ever filmed.

    •_Darkness in the Ridley Scott film Legend ... Tim Curry as the Devil? Ya, sure, you betcha!

    thanx,
    Tiassa
