Unless you happen to be a geography buff or a resident of the extreme Pacific Northwest, it’s safe to say you never heard of a tiny town called Forks until the Twilight Saga made it famous. The town has a population of less than four thousand, but it now might get that many visitors in a single month. Visitors to Forks can go on a full-out Twilight tour, visiting everything from Bella Swan’s pick-up truck to the officers where Dr. Cullen works. The tiny logging town has …for better or for worse.

Before we found out about a town called Forks in the west, horror buffs had a smaller Mecca toward which to flock in the east: Burkittsville, Maryland. Anybody remember a little movie called ?

Heath Ledger: Legendary Villain

Heath Ledger as the Joker

The Dark Knight has yet to hit theaters, yet it’s already shaping up to be ’s greatest flick. Critics are raving, the trailers primarily feature him in grotesque make-up, and Moviefone has added him to their list of great on-screen villains. There’s only one problem: I don’t agree with Moviefone’s list.

The list of Top 25 movie villains includes old favorites like Khan (Star Trek II), Cruella de Ville (101 Dalmations), Faye Dunaway as Joan Crawford (Mommie Dearest), Jimmy Cagney as the Public Enemy (love, love, love Cagney), Freddy Krueger and Michael Myers. On Moviefone’s list, Heath’s Joker comes in at Number 5, trumped by Hannibal Lecter, the Wicked Witch of the West (The Wizard of Oz), Darth Vader and Lord Voldemort.

And I think Moviefone is wrong. While there were some on the list who were truly chilling - as Annie Wilkes in Misery, for instance - others were left off the countdown completely. So with no further delay I will name the on-screen villains I found the most frightening and fearsome in big-screen flicks. None of my villains made it to Moviefone’s list and I can’t imagine why.
