Anyone else think Robert Helpmann as The Child Catcher in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was/is one of the most disturbing characters ever portrayed on film??? Cripes it's 40 years since I first saw it at the pictures as a nipper and he still gives me the creeps.
Have to agree with Joachim Phoenix in Gladiator too.. the scene where he finally moves in on his sister is beyond evil..
There are moments in Fatal Attraction where the sheer maniacal persistence of Glenn Close's character should put the fear of God into any red blooded male haha
It's often the subtle suggestions of evil that I find the most scary.. like Rosemary's satanic neighbours in Rosemary's Baby, the nurse in Exorcist 3 with the slightly badly applied lipstick, when Pacino's tongue keeps flicking across his lips lizard style in Devil's Advocate ... stuff like that eh?
