Movie Villains We Love To Hate: 11 On-Screen Bad Guys And Girls We Absolutely Couldn’t Stand

March 26, 2013 ‐ By Clarke Gail Baines

While some people watch movies and quietly root for the villain (no lie, I thought Bane in The Dark Knight Rises was bad a**!), many of us do the complete opposite–we watch these cocky, disrespectful, distasteful and often violent characters with disgust. Some are so good at being bad that we equate the actors with these characters for a long time, and some are eerily effective, to the point that you watch the character, act like you know them, and scoff at the fact that you dislike them so much. If you ever say, “UGH!” when you watch these movies, or shake your head at these characters a few times, then you’ll probably agree that they were villains you loved to hate.

Sanaa Lathan

Sanaa Lathan in The Family That Preys

If you watched just 30 minutes of The Family That Preys and viewed Lathan as Andrea, you were probably just as sick of her as we were. She was a conniving cheater, dogging out her hard-working and fine man (Rockmond Dunbar) for the town’s stuck-up socialite and trust-fund baby. And in the end, she revealed that *SPOILER* the son her husband thought was his blood was a product of her affair. She didn’t even look remorseful at all! Who else wanted to reach through the screen and shake her real good???

    I’m taking it waaay back but my ultimate antagonist and villain (even though she turned it around at the end) for me was the daughter in Imitation of Life. That movie brings me to tears everytime. On a lighter note but still deserving of a evil nod is Shadow Man from the Princess and the Frog :)

    Tank. When he played Devlin on “The Preacher’a Kid.” I wanted to go through the screen and bash his head in. That’s how brutal he was.

      Did you not see Madea’s Family Reunion, or Why Did I Get Married, or Diary of a Mad Black Woman? The villians in those movies weren’t lightskinned.

    What about Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs as Joseph Jackson in The Jacksons: An American Dream?

    • DinaLineth

      Yesssss! I was going to mention him. Till this day, whenever I see him in other acting roles, I get a little spooked.

    I think Sanaa Lathan played that part so well because she’s kind of like that. I saw a video of her on YouTube, where a woman was standing in front of a restaurant door that Sanaa Lathan was exiting. Without even pausing, Ms. Lathan used her forearm to shove the woman aside and kept going. The way she did it was the way you would push aside clothing on a rack to get to something you want to see. The woman who had been shoved aside, commented about it to the person videotaping it, and SL never even acknowledged her.

      I’m telling you, if you get Google Chrome and get AdBlock Plus, you’ll never have to worry about the annoying ads ever again. It even blocks the ads on YouTube.
