Some movie villians are scary but they're way too over the top so they aren't really creepy.
I saw a bit of a movie the other day called "Intensity" and that guy was creepy. He'd sniff things and make these little satisfied noises in the back of his throat. He'd tell people awful things just to freak them out. Otherwise, he seemed pretty normal and that's what made him so creepy, creepy to me, anyway.
Because I didn't get to see much of the movie I looked it up today and it sounds like he was even creepier than what I saw.
Who do you think is the creepiest (not scariest) bad guy in the movies? What makes him (or her) so creepy?
The only one that ever really gave me the creeps (although it was pretty scary as well) was the original Terminator.
From the film: "Listen, and understand. That terminator is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead."

The veterinarian/surgeon named Dr. Heiter in the revolting horror film The Human Centipede (2009).
Not only is his career goals and his hobbies are insane, it's his demeanor as he carries it out. Quite antisocial indeed!
Beyond his sick and revolting fetish, his mannerisms, his facial expressions, his inability to read other's emotions make him ubercreepy.

Ohhhh. The Terminator. Good choice!
I haven't had the nerve to watch The Human Centipede. I'm not sure I could make it through. I wasn't sure I could make it through that preview!
I can't recommend the movie in the first place. However the lead actor who plays the doctor does it too convincingly.

I'm not sure why you got all that voting down flack farmerman... perhaps some people didn't like the possible spoiler? That doesn' seem right as it's obviously the Anton character is the nemesis of the film.
True. Maybe that's why I'm the only person on the planet that likes it.

I enjoyed Herbert's first three books, but after that it got out of hand. The problem with all of that is that you could have made three movies just out of the first book. That voice-over narrative thing just didn't work. As a science fiction novel, it was great. As a movie, it was doomed to commercial failure.
Oh I know it's deeply flawed, even by director Alan Smithee's standards, but I love it still. Yeah I read all the books, but I tend to do that (completist?) the last book was the second best of all, so worth it in the end. (quick howl for lack of Noddy input here)
