The 10 best evil "villainesses" from the movies

Updated on November 23, 2012

The Wickedest women ever!

I had a lot of fun listing my favorite bad guys, and the best actors and actresses that play the evil ...well, you know what, from the movies. There is something endearing about the tinsel town villain, that makes us like to watch them. As crazy as that sounds, its true!

Those that came close-

Gozer- from Ghostbusters- Ya know "this chick is toast". That Prehistoric....

Medussa- She was terrifying when played right.

Cruella Deville- If this were a list of the 101 best wicked women, she would be in.

Mommy Dearest- Couldn't do it!

Norma Bates- She came so, so, close. I hated how she treated Norman in Psycho 4!

Here are those that I thought were the best and why. Sorry, no cartoons made it.


13. Jennifer from Jennifer's Body Meghan Fox played her very well! The movie was quite flawed, but the character was not!

12. Amanda Young from Saw. This wench was flat out nuts! I am not a Saw fan, but she was creepy and excellent!

11.Mystique from The X-men She was a walking nightmare who used her special powers for all of the wrong reasons. Then when she lost her power, she turned on her "friends"

10. Samara Morgan from The Ring This girl wanted to be loved. Don't worry she will love you you to death that is!

9. Esther from the Orphan- A cute young girl that was as evil as sin. That is pretty evil.

8. Jezzie Flanagan from Along came a Spider Monica Potter was awesome as a rotten, evil, murderer, disguised as'll just have to watch!

7. Baby Jane Hudson- What ever Happened to Baby Jane- Betty Davis was great in this role, and she inspired other evil characters over the years.

6. Pamela Voorhees from Friday the 13th. Did you think that Jason was the killer in F13? Think again! Before he came back for vengeance, his mommy bloodied everything at Camp Chrystal lake.

5. Jadis, The White Whitch of Narnia- This evil dictator ruled with a mighty fist, fear, and her magic. She was so bad, they had to kill her twice!

4. Annie Wilkes from Misery- Kathy Bates was terrifying in this role. She was a relentlessly obsessed sicko, but hey, we loved her!

3. Cat Woman from Batman. The hot lady with the cold heart. She seduced the Dark Knight, and almost took an even darker city.

2. Alex Forrest from Fatal Attraction- Glenn Close could seem so sweet and innocent, and then, watch out, if you are still alive!

Since you have not seen her, you should know who comes next. The one and only, the old one we loath, the wickedest of the wicked...

1. The Wicked Witch of The West from The Wizard of Oz.- Even her guards hated her as they chanted "Oh we loath the old one" when patrolling the castle of Margaret Hamilton.The green witch that we all loved to hate!

      I've got to go along with the wicked witch of the west as the best of the big screen bad girls.I grew up with that film and the witch was wonderfully evil and deserved to be melted.(Unless you saw 'Wicked' which gives you the story from the Witch's side, and she doesn't seem so evil.) Who else could be number one?
