It can be just as thrilling to love a villain just as much as any character, whether they’re human or inhuman. Antagonists can be impressively clever, creative, and can undeniably add to the fight for survival for their poor, unsuspecting victims! Here’s five I really wouldn’t want to meet, they certainly left a memorable impression.
(I want to preface this by stating that my reading of the genre is by no means extensive, not by a long shot. I still have a lot to discover!)
He was a truly an excellent villain, one of the best as far as I’m concerned. He implemented himself into people’s lives, and quickly became integral; as far as they were aware, he took their best interests at heart. It was his expertly woven manipulation, as well as his cool demeanour, that struck me as quite fascinating.Read my review here.

The monster design in particular was phenomenal, I’m a huge fan of the disgusting and the twisted, and Sodergren didn’t disappoint. In fact, his creativity went beyond any and all expectations. Read my review here.
Domineus and Sanikus were tremendously entertaining, and not only because of their violent and sexual endeavours. They had history, and they had each other; an intriguing aspect considering they were evil fiends. Read my review here.
