    I totally agree! I thought he was more appalling that Henry. He was an imbecile and a slob. Somehow that cold calculation of Henry made him seem more admirable in a perverse way.

    Kandyse McClure as Vicki Stanton in the terrible remake of "Children of the Corn". In fact the entire cast suck.

    Allyce Beasley (Deputy Becka Paulson) in The Tommyknockers

    Adrienne Barbeau (Wilma Northrup) in Creepshow (segment "The Crate")

    Pretty much any character that uses religion to justify their outrageous actions ie Marcia Gay Harden in the Mist, Piper Laurie in Carrie, and John Lithgow in Footloose (haha)

    Yeah, good call by all for Marcia Gay in The Mist. I usually revel in detestable characters like Krug or John Doe in Seven, but yeah, never have I been so vehemently hoping for a character's demise than Harden's in The Mist. That said, great performance!

    Marcia Gay Harden is super underrated, in my opinion. She also had a part in a couple of episodes of Law and Order: SVU a couple of years back playing a white supremacist. I wanted to kill her then too.

    the older sister in Poltergeist. Completely useless character and annoying to boot. I was hoping the tree would drop the boy and eat her instead.

    Every single character in Buio Omega...holy shit, definitely the most depraved, sleazy, unlikeable cast of characters in any film I can think of. And that's exactly why I love it :p

    She plays the character who says "I'm seriously beginning to doubt your commitment to Sparkle Motion!" in Donnie Darko, right? Great delivery.

    No, that's not her. Though I haven't seen Donnie Darko in ages, she isn't listed on the IMDB page for the film.

    Busta Rhymes single-handedly turned a bad movie into and awful movie, and Yeardley Smith's hysteria was nothing short of nails on a chalkboard...

    I also really hate the grumpy, fat sheriffs from Honeymoon Horror and Death Screams.

    DF9's correct. I must associate all creepy ladies with poor Ms. Grant.
     
  14. Whoever said Otis from Henry Portrait of the Serial Killer is dead wrong-- not many drug dealers would be so kind to rub your leg after selling you an 1/8th ;-) wink wink Just kidding, he's one of the most vile characters ever.

    In terms of pure sliminess, I don't think the Castle Freak has been mentioned-- that titty eater is fucking vile.

    I have to go with Busta Rhymes from Halloween Resurrection as well...God,what a loathsome character,with his ugly mouth hanging open while he's desperately trying to emote, (for that matter,I would have also slapped Katee Sackhoff's character for the stupid facial expressions that stand in for acting).

    Brainscan-Eddie Furlong's hideous,freckle-faced friend Kyle,(Jamie Marsh?)..that kid is supremely tough to look at,let alone listen to.

    Troll 2-Elliott's talent-less friend with the glasses.."They're eating her.And they're gonna eat me. Oh my Goooooddd." 'Nuff said.

    the black guy in the new Friday The 13th..God,what an imbecile.Not funny,not cool,and the 'why you gotta be racist' deal was never funny...while we're at it, Chewie can go sit on Jason's machete, too.If they were supposed to be annoying enough for us to want to see them get wasted,the writer succeeded.And then some.

    The clown who played Duncan in Slumber Party Massacre 3.He lived waaay too long.

    That's all for now.

    Tom Towles as Otis in Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer

    The scene where he watches the tape of the home invasion over and over again creeps me the hell out, and he even tries to bang his sister! He makes Henry (the serial killer!) look like an ok guy through most of the movie!

    Not that these films have much redeeming quality...

    Sheri Moon Zombie and Daeg Faerch (young Michael Myers) from Halloween.
    Hands down they were the worst part of this film and made me hate these characters.

    I have a hard time hearing Mrs. Zombie talk in anything with out wanting to shoot her. Not that I condone violence towards kids, I want to kick young Michael every time he is on screen. Just looking at him makes me angry.

    Daeg (perfect name) is one ugly kid.He looks like the Chucky model Playpal Toys would have scrapped for being too ugly.

    And Sheri is just ass.A stripper who caught a break,as far as I'm concerned,yet her films never let her stray too far from her roots.

    Zombie himself makes me want to throw things.Bob and Judith's boyfriend from the Halloween remake anger me with their dirty hippie hair,and make me hit fast forward on the remote.

    Does every one of Zombie's characters have to look like his scuzzy hermit self??
