Mr. Gold/Rumple is my new favorite bad guy! I love his demonic cackle and his complex storyline! My hat goes off to the Once Upon A Time writers!
From The Once Upon A Time Wiki
Rumplestiltskin is a major character on Once Upon a Time. He débuts in the first episode of the first season. He is portrayed by starring cast member Robert Carlyle, and is the fairytale identity of Mr. Gold. Rumplestiltskin is one of the most feared beings in Fairytale Land and is notorious for his deals.
Rumplestiltskin is based on the titular character from the fairytale "Rumpelstiltskin", and takes the place of the Beast from the story, Beauty and the Beast.
I love Lestat in both book and film forms. He's bold, arrogant, and so deserves the name "The Brat Prince"!
The townspeople of Lestat's village request his help with a pack of wolves that are terrorizing the town. He rides into the mountains and kills the entire pack of eight, losing his horse, dogs, and nearly his own life in the process. Although his bravery wins him the respect and admiration of the villagers, who present him with a lush red velvet cloak and boots made from the pelts of the wolves, he goes into a deep depression.
Prodded by Gabrielle, he eventually leaves Auvergne with friend and lover Nicolas and heads for Paris, intending to become an actor. During performances, he attracts the attention of an ancient vampire named Magnus, who later abducts him and transforms him into a vampire.
After turning Lestat, Magnus commits suicide, leaving Lestat to fend for himself without any kind of guidance. Lestat finds himself heir to a nearly inexhaustible wealth, and begins an adventure that leads him all around the world.
Dracula is just the end all be all for villains. In both the book and film versions, the story is haunting and actually makes you sympathize with him as he tries to reclaim his lost love.
In 1462, Vlad Dracula, a member of the Order of the Dragon, returns from a victory against the Turks to find his wife, Elisabeta, has committed suicide after receiving a false report of his death. Enraged that his wife is now damned for committing suicide, Dracula desecrates his chapel and renounces God, declaring that he will rise from the grave to avenge Elisabeta with all the powers of darkness. In a fit of rage, he stabs the cross with his sword and drinks the blood which is pouring out of the cross.
Because I'm a child of the 80's, no list would be complete without the wise cracking Freddy. While he doesn't have the good looks or charm of the other bad guys listed above, he is a true villain. He has no redeeming qualities and other than a laugh now and then, he is pure horror movie fodder. It was always fun to try and figure out just how he was going to kill each person.
Freddy Krueger is a fictional character and the primary antagonist of A Nightmare on Elm Street film series. He appears in Wes Craven's A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) as a disfigured serial killer who uses a glove armed with razors to kill his victims in their dreams, causing their deaths in the waking world as well. However, whenever he is put into the real world, he has normal human vulnerability. Krueger was created by Wes Craven, and had been consistently portrayed by Robert Englund since his first appearance. In the 2010 remake he was portrayed by Academy Award-nominee Jackie Earle Haley.
