Batman‘s Joker and Psycho‘s Norman Bates Rank as the Scariest Movie Villains

You’ve heard that there’s no light without dark, right? Well, in the movies, there’s definitely not good without evil. Here’s the rub: sometimes, the villains are a lot more fun than the protagonists they’re up against. The Caped Crusader is great and all, but it’s Jack Nicholson’s Joker who makes Batman go. Sarah Connor is heroic, but, when you watch The Terminator, it’s to see the menacing, muscular cyborg played to perfection by Arnold Schwarzenegger. Ditto for Anthony Perkins as Norman Bates in Psycho. And while Jodie Foster’s memorable in The Silence of the Lambs, don’t pretend you’re watching that movie for anything other than Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter. So which of these monstrous villains is the antagonist of your dreams — or nightmares, really?
