It's that time of year. People all over are paying gobs of money so people can try and scare the pee out of them. Meanwhile, in Sunshine-Rainbows-LaLaLand where I live, I'm avoiding all movie trailers and watching fall themed movies and Hocus Pocus and calling it awesome. To get in the Halloween spirit, I've compiled a list of what I think are the scariest Disney villains.
Now of course these photos don't belong to me, but they truly depict the horror with which these Disney villains reign. So here they are!
10. Shan-Yu, Mulan
Anyone who smiles while thinking about murdering children makes the list. We see illusions to his brutality, like having his men kill all of the Emperor's army, and we see him battle Mulan. His defeat is quite enjoyable, as he didn't expect a woman to best him. HA!
9. Mother Gothel, Tangled
8. Cruella DeVil, 101 Dalmatians
7. Ursula, The Little Mermaid
6. Scar, The Lion King
The lengths that Scar will go to to be king of Pride Rock are truly terrifying. Killing your brother? Severe. Killing you nephew, a mere child? Extremely severe. Killing your brother in front of your nephew, convincing the nephew it was his fault, and then ordering his execution? Deeply disturbing.
4. Maleficent, Sleeping Beauty
Oh, just a woman who can become a fire-breathing dragon at the drop of a hat and curses an entire kingdom because she wasn't invited to something she probably didn't want to go to anyway.
3. Dr. Facilier, The Princess and the Frog
2. Chernabog, Fantasia
Ugh. Chernabog. Walt himself referred to this character as the devil. He's a combination of the minotaur and a Mayan demon. He may only be a small part of Fantasia, but he's certainly memorable. In an evil, terror inducing way.
1. The Horned King, The Black Cauldron
I'm not sure he needs an introduction, because you can see that picture, yes? Just a cloaked skeleton with hot-coal eyes trying to summon an army of zombies. No big deal. I won't have nightmares just thinking about him or anything.
What do you think? Did I miss any scary villains?
