Once again, I’m joining the weekly blog challenge at Long and Short Reviews. Check out some of the other authors too.
The Wicked Witch of the West: I know this sounds a little strange but this was the first character that really frightened me. Even though the movie was an old classic by the time I was a child, I have distinct memories of how much the witch’s laugh and her army of flying monkeys gave me nightmares. I can deal with it now-of course-but I can’t forget that childhood thrill /fear factor of the original Wicked Witch of the West.
Kai Winn: There are all kinds of villains and foes in the Star Trek universe, but Kai Winn is the worst. She pretends to be your friend, but undercuts you at every turn. She’s so convinced of her own self-righteous that nothing matters. She never kills anyone herself but doesn’t seem concerned about the result of her actions. Louise Fletcher did an outstanding job in that role and one of the many reasons it’s one of my favorite Treks.
Pennywise: From Stephen King’s It. Clowns have always frightened me, and this only made it worse.
Euron Greyjoy: GoT is full of people you’d never want to meet but I’ll only talk about one. I loathe Euron Greyjoy. He’s vile, disgusting, creepy, and he looks like he never bathes and smells like fish. The only person worst than him (still alive as of this season) is Cersei herself.
This was a tough topic for me, because even when villains are awful, if the writer writes it well, or the actor shines in the role, I want to meet them.
