I second that. Bruce was frightening because he wasn't evil, just an exceptionally skilled instinctive eating machine.

The Sheriff of Notingham in that Kevin Costner Robin Hood movie. Yeah, Kevy kinda sucked in it, but Alan Rickman (sp?) was deliciously nasty.

We only got a glimpse of him in the last HP movie, but Voldemort has the potential to be one of the all time great screen baddies.

I'd second Rutger Hauer's Roy Batty in Blade Runner.
John Hurt's Chancellor Sutler in V for Vendetta
Joe Pilato's Captain Rhodes in Day of the Dead
Patrick Stewart's Karla in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and Smiley's People. (Never has a character said so much without saying anything.
The Captain (who's name I forget, and couldn't spell even if I remember it) in Pan's Labyrinth. A slicked-down, meticulous Nut-Job.
Jack Nicholson in The Departed. Simply nuts
El Indio in A Few Dollars More. I think it's the dead eyes.

Vincent d'Onofrio, as Pooh Bear, the psychotic drug dealer in Salton Sea. Not a terribly well-known movie, but dark, sometimes almost surreal noir, and very well done. Val Kilmer is the star, but Vince completely steals it from him. Doug Hutchison (the sadistic guard Percy in Green Mile) has a good role, too.

BK's mascot, the creepy ass King. I HATE that commercial where the guy looks out the window, sees nothing, turns around, turns back, and BAM that creepy m^th$rf&ck$r is RIGHT THERE! Do you know how LONG I had nightmares for after that? My dad knew how badly it creeped me out, so he went out and got a cardboard cutout of him and put it next to my bed. I still get shivers thinking about that morning.... I've never screamed so much in my life....

(This is coming from the same chick who enjoys poking at dead bodies and searching for monstrous-looking things, thinks a dead-looking guy is really, really irresistable when covered in blood and chunks of skin, and makes insects her friends. Go figure.)

Darth Vader

The Nothing from The Neverending Story

Sauron from LOTR

General Bethlehem from The Postman (I don't care that the movie's cheesy and has Kevin Costner in it. He's still a good villain, I say)

The Bad (from TG,TB,TU)

Shredder from the second live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie (his gauntleted hand jutting up from the wreckage at the end OMG, scary)

Lupus or Legionella, from House (judging from how many cases the teams assigns this initial diagnosis to, these diseases have to be @%!#$%ing scary).

LOL! That dude freaks my wife out too. She swears she'll never set foot inside another Burger King after seeing those commercials. Now that's what you call a good advertising campaign. ;)

Cilian Murphy in whatever he plays - Redeye, Batman etc.
But he was such a nice boy in 28 days Later.

I nominate Pluto in 'One False Move'. He is such a cold, calm pyschopath, no over-the-top mannerisms or catch-phrases, just totally, scarily believable.

Absolute opposite, but nevertheless a psycho, Linda Fiorentino in 'The Last Seduction'.
