TV villains are meant to be bad, but some of them have crossed the line and are just downright scary!
These are the ones that stay with us long after we turn off our TV. They haunt our waking thoughts and terrorize us as we try to sleep! If we even can!
Don't turn off the lights, because that bad guy or gal or being might be waiting for you in the dark!
Check out our list of 25 TV Villains who give us nightmares!
Negan - The Walking Dead
Anyone who gives a name to a barbed-wire covered bat is the stuff of nightmares. Eenie-Meanie-Miney-Mo will never sound so innocent again.
The Salesman - The Exorcist
The evil only exists in your mind...or does it? It's a scary thought knowing that something only you can see can torture you until you give in to its evil, but that's exactly what The Salesman is doing to Casey Rance. Shudder!
The Monster - Stranger Things
Imagine a being like this so close you could almost touch it, but who would want to? The Monster or demogorgon lives in another dimension called the Upside Down, but was able to enter our world through tears in the fabric of reality. It was attracted to the smell of blood and would cpature victims and bring them back to its world, sometimes killing them, sometimes not! Let's hope there are no tears in the fabric of our reality!
Jervis Tetch (The Mad Hatter) - Gotham
Hypnotism is scary under normal circumstances. Who knows what happens when you're put under? But, imagine if it was a madman doing the deed? Oh, my! Time to run!!
Sidney - Outcast
Sidney just looks like evil incarnate, yet many people in Rome are welcoming him into their lives. Probably not a good idea, but that's exactly what the man-in-charge of demons or whatever they are wants. So, beware of the new guy in town. Never know who he might be.
The Master - The Strain
Vampires are some of the scariest beings, but imagine being running into one of the original vampires? Even worse? Getting infected by a virus that automatically turns you into a vampire and not even knowing what happened. It's the stuff of nightmares!
