Halloween is fast approaching and people are looking for films that they could watch on the scariest night of the year. People are in for movies with villains that would be remarkable and unforgettable for the rest of their lives. But, there are still some characters you wish you didn't know all along.
Here are some of the most feared villains in films. Villains that you would be thankful for because they are not in fact real:
1. The Joker
This character was shown in the hit movie "The Dark Knight". He is the worst enemy of the DC superhero, Batman. Heath Ledger, the actor who gave life to the role, won different awards after his portrayal of the character. The character was the main reason for countless homicides and killing of Bruce Wayne's parents.
You wouldn't want to see the character in real life because of his clown-looking features. A physique, you wouldn't want to see even in your dreams.
His famous statement after killing a victim is an added factor why people are scared of him:
"You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?"
The character portrayed by Angelina Jolie in the hit movie "Girl, Interrupted" released 1999. Jolie was popular for her versatility and brilliance in her acting, but playing Lisa was over the top. As a matter of fact, the actress won the Best Supporting Actress due to her great performance. Lisa Rowe, described as sociopathic, is a mental patient who is rebellious, dangerous and manipulative.
Just the fact that she need to go an asylum, makes viewers thrilled and scared to meet her in real life.
3. Don Logan
