Poll: And the vilest villain from a Best Picture winner ...

I started with 'And' because this poll is a continuation to the previous Inspiring Hero from a Best Picture Winner poll. Indeed, as indispensable as the heroic figure is for a Best Picture, it can't do without a proper enemy to defeat, a memorable incarnation of the darkest sides of human nature to triumph over, or at least to try ... although some of the following villains are so larger-than-life characters, they happen to be the main protagonists of the story and in most cases, the first victims of their own vileness.

So, which of these villains from Best Picture Winners, do you think, is the least redeemable or the closest to your PERSONAL definition of the word 'monster'. In other words, which one did you want to strangle with your own hands or scared you so much you didn't even dare to think about it?
