Another Top 10 Over-the-Top Villain Deaths


When a movie sets up a really good villain, you want to see him go down in a big bad way. Join WatchMojo.com as we count down our picks for another Top 10 Over-The- Top Villain Deaths.

For this list, we’re taking a look at more big screen baddies that bite the dust in the most insane fashions possible. If you think we’re missing a few, be sure to check out our original list for the Top 10 Over the Top Villain Deaths. Also, and this is probably really obvious but, a SPOILER ALERT is definitely in order.

#10: Mrs. Pamela Voorhees
“Friday the 13th” (1980)

There aren’t many things as strong as a mother’s love for her son. That’s why when Pamela Voorhees’ boy drowned in a lake while camp counselors were off screwing around, she vowed to take revenge on sexy teens. And she’s mostly successful in terrorizing the youths of Crystal Lake. However, when a camp worker named Alice decides she’s had enough of seeing her friends murdered, the tables are turned. After an epic beachside battle, Alice gets the upper hand and subdues Jason’s mom, machete-style by lopping off her head. Cue bad ‘80s slow motion and wacky music!

#9: Major Pa Tee Tint
“Rambo” (2008)

After a lifetime of doling out mindless and oftentimes extremely entertaining murders, John Rambo decides to retire to the forests of Thailand where he catches snakes and gives people boat rides for a living. When evil military officer, Major Tint, pillages his way into the picture, Rambo knows what he must do and starts shooting his way through the jungle and Tint’s army. After he somehow singlehandedly takes out many of Tint’s troops – some in gruesome fashion – Tint himself decides it’s time for a change, turns tail, runs and tries to escape being brutally killed by Rambo. Sadly, Tint is Hara-Kiried before he can get too far and Rambo saves the day.

#8: Ernst Stavro Blofeld
“For Your Eyes Only” (1981)

Since the filmmakers were in a dispute about the rights to the character of Ernst Stavro Blofeld, they decided to send him off in style – albeit without naming him outright. After entering a remote controlled helicopter, Bond is nearly killed by the cat-stroking baldie we assume to be his arch-nemesis, but soon wrests control of the vehicle by using some of that MI6 knowhow. 007 chases down his wheelchair-bound adversary and steers him wildly through the air with the ‘copter. After a brief exchange where Blofeld pleads for his life with some bizarre bargains, our hero unceremoniously drops him down an industrial chimney. And that’s all before the opening credits.

#7: Mola Ram
“Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” (1984)

As he’s wont to do, Indy stumbles upon a fiendish world domination plot concocted by the evil high priest, Mola Ram. Jones and his sidekicks attempt to stop Mola Ram and escape his evil lair when they are cornered on a precarious bridge. Indy uses that patented no-nonsense logic and cuts the bridge in half, sending them all tumbling to the side of a cliff where Indy and Mola faceoff some more. After some clumsy kicking and slapping, Mola Ram gets his hands on artifacts that are a little too hot to handle and plummets straight into the jaws of waiting crocodiles. Still, it’s better than having the life sucked outta you.

#6: Stuntman Mike McKay
“Death Proof” (2007)

Quentin Tarantino is all about girl power, and this throwback to grindhouse classics is packed with it. When the homicidal Stuntman Mike McKay tries to continue his killing binge by targeting three adrenaline junkies with his “death-proof” car, they fight back and a chase ensues where Mike’s car is thoroughly pummeled. The pursuit ends with the would-be killer’s ride upside-down and him being beaten maybe to death by the three heroines. It just goes to show that high-octane murder sprees never end well.

#5: Steve Hadley
“The Cabin in the Woods” (2012)

If you work at a compound full of nightmare creatures, serial killers and horrifying beasts, you’re going to run into a snag every now and then. When the nice people at the Facility encounter some technical problems with their teenage slaughter ritual, the monsters are set free and the result is a fiasco. As everyone in the Facility is brutally torn to shreds by mythical monsters, one senior technician is cornered by the creature that fascinates him most: the dreaded Merman. While calling Steve Hadley a villain may be a stretch depending on your interpretation of the movie, the beast doesn’t seem to care as he summarily slays him. Hey, at least he got to see one up close.

#4: Alfred
“Hudson Hawk” (1991)

After a confusing series of events leads Bruce Willis’ Hudson Hawk into a final showdown between the mafia, the CIA, the heads of a giant corporation, and who knows what else, Willis ends up facing off with the bad guys in a castle – obviously. One of the villains in question, a blade-happy butler named Alfred, attacks Bruce and the two do battle. Our protagonist gains the upper hand and beheads the butler with his own blades. Of course, there’s always time for an awkward, if not completely tasteless, one-liner. Oh, and Hudson Hawk is not above dog murder either… Don’t worry: the dog was an asshole.

#3: Captain Darrow
“The Rock” (1996)

Rule #1: don’t bring a knife to a rocket fight. When Nicolas Cage’s Dr. Stanley Goodspeed is cornered by a homicidal rogue Marine, he must improvise to save himself and countless others. The marine pulls a knife so Goodspeed looks around for the nearest weapon, which happens to be the controls to a big old rocket. With an over-the-top sendoff line to send him on his way, Cage sends Captain Darrow flying through the air and right down onto a busted fencepost. It’s a helluva lot cooler and more dignified way to go out than being force-fed a powerful nerve poison, which Cage also does to another of the film’s main baddies, Captain Frye.

#2: Howard Saint
“The Punisher” (2004)

Revenge is never the answer – well, unless your loved ones are killed and you have a lot of guns. The villainous Howard Saint murders Frank Castle’s family, and thinks he’s killed Castle as well. But the guy survives to become the homicidal Punisher, fighting crime one bullet at a time. He sets his murderous sites on Saint and systematically plots his revenge by seeing to the murders of his friends and loved ones. He then puts the final subtle touch on his spree by shooting Saint, tying him to the back of a car and sending him through a parking lot filled with exploding automobiles which, when seen from high above, forms the Punisher’s logo. Frank Castle is nothing if not brand conscious.

Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions:
- Frank D’Amico
“Kick-Ass” (2010)
- Kim Jong-un
“The Interview” (2014)
- Alex Forrest
“Fatal Attraction” (1987)
- Rome
“The Marine” (2006)
- Sebastian Caine
“Hollow Man” (2000)
- Clarence Boddicker
“RoboCop” (1987)

#1: Cyrus ‘The Virus’ Grissom
“Con Air” (1997)

As the big baddie in this classic ‘90s action romp, Cyrus’ death is a multi-part process starting with a broken spear through the leg. This is followed by a sound beating at the hands of an accented Nic Cage, after which he’s cuffed to the ladder of a fire truck and raised high into the air. Still somehow alive, Cyrus is then thrown through a glass window and into some high-tension power lines, where he is electrocuted and then falls onto a conveyor belt. STILL somehow alive, the belt leads him into a crushing machine where his head is turned to peanut butter. Still somehow miraculously alive…nah, we’re just kidding; he’s finally dead.
