Technically, you could include his scene from the DVD edition of Empire.

The fact that he didn't even make that original list makes the whole thing invalid.

SWEET.

Personally I'd go with Gary Oldman in Coppola's version. Muthafucka was creepy as all hell, and played him at two different ages.

Bill the Butcher is not a villain. He's a saint.

The lack of Nurse Ratched and HAL 9000 is frustrating. Not a horrible list, but the placement is pretty bad. #1 is hilarious.

Voldemort at no. 1 is a joke. I wouldn't even rate him that high if this was a book poll; I love Harry Potter series but Voldemort IMO is just your standard bogeyman.

Off the top of my head, some of my personal picks would be:

1. Darth Vader - Star Wars
2. Anton Chigurgh - No Country for Old Men
3. HAL 9000 - 2001: A Space Odyssey
4. The Borg Queen - Star Trek: First Contact
5. Annie Wilkes - Misery
6. Scar - The Lion King
7. Marquise de Merteuil - Dangerous Liaisons (played by Glenn Close)
8. Nurse Ratched - One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
9. Morgana - Excalibur (played by Helen Mirren)
10. Agent Smith - The Matrix
11. Dr. Hannibal Lector - The Silence of the Lambs
12. Amon Goeth - Schindler's List
13. Magneto - X-Men series
14. Miranda Priestly - The Devil Wears Prada
15. Cruella de Vil - One Hundred and One Dalmatians

Also, Rebecca from Hitchcock's "Rebecca" deserves a special mention, despite the fact that the character never actually appears in the film.

I would also like to point out the glaring ommisions of both Keyser Soze from The Usual Suspects and Stansfield from Leon: The Professional as well...

I thought about them, they'd be in the Top 25-30, fo' sho'. We need to bring back the Heroes/Villains tourney!

Stansfield... forgot about him.

That and when he sniffs the guy... fucking classic.

Laz, I haven't seen Coppola's Dracula in a long time, so I can't say much about Oldman's Dracula against Lugosi's.

Here are my personal favorites (in no particular order):

Darth Vadar/Anakin Skywalker - Hayden Christiansen/James Earl Jones/David Prouse - I don't count Jake Lloyd because he was still an innocent baby....lol.

Amon Geoth - Played to perfection by Ralph Fiennes in Shindler's List. The fact that he was REAL makes his evil even more terrifying.

Bruce the shark - the star of JAWS. Well, ok, he's not a real villian because he's an animal who just follows his natural instincts...lol.

Dr. Zell - Lawrence Olivier is incredible in Marathon Man and I swear that to this day I can't hear the sound of a dentist's drill without thinking of that scene....OUCH!

Meowrice - voiced by Paul Frees in the animated movie "Gay Puree". He's a slimey conniving sleaze who plots to take poor little Mewsette (voiced by Judy Garland) away from her boyfriend Jean Tom (voiced by Robert Goulet) and to ship her overseas to marry a wealthy old man...*shudder*.

Max Cady - Robert De Niro is so evil you just wait for him to get what he deserves.

Travis Dane - Eric Begosian in "Under Seige 2". So cute, so sexy, so BAD!!

No. It's not safe, it's... very dangerous, be careful.
