Usually the antagonists in films are men. But every so often, a women comes along in a film who’s so cruel, nasty, and just plain evil that you can’t help but say, “Wow, what a b****!” Anyways, here’s my pick for the best (worst) villainesses of all time.
4. Rossa Klebb – ‘From Russia With Love’ (1963)
By far the single most troublesome (and ugly) woman in James Bond’s life, she spends most of the film trying to kill him. Kuddos to the poison-tipped shoes though.
3. The Alien Queen – ‘Aliens’ (1986)
One ugly, disgusting creature. She’s got two mouths, a fifty-foot egg sack, and the ability to summon other aliens at her whim. Not only that, but she tries to kill the film’s little girl (gasp!). Thank goodness Ripley (and a military-grade power suit) was there to save the day.
1. Mrs. Robinson – ‘The Graduate’ (1967)
She’s manipulative, creepy, and slightly insane. She seduces Dustin Hoffman only to turn psycho on him when he starts dating her daughter. She’s as deranged and frightening as they come, and there’s a look in her eyes that keeps me awake at night. No villainess has been more disturbing, conniving, or just plain evil.
