Maybe they're villains, maybe they mistakenly wound up on a dark path or maybe they're just misunderstood. In any case, here are 10 creeps everyone should know and love.
1. Walter White aka Heisenberg.
He starts out as a harmless old man who teaches high school chemistry. He gets diagnosed with cancer, so the most logical solution in his mind is to become a world-class meth cook. By the end of the Breaking Bad, any sympathy you may have had for Walt is replaced by utter fear.
2. Michael Scott.
The most harmless of all the creeps. Let's be real, we love him dearly—creepy/inappropriate comments and all.
3. The Wicked Witch of the West.
She's an old school creep whose minion of choice is a monkey—with wings. Just some food for thought, chimpanzees are about four times as strong as humans. So, just imagine one that can fly. Sheer terror.
The hair. The eyeliner. The clothes. The voice. That is all.
5. Johnny Depp. In anything. Ever.
Edward Scissorhands, Sweeney Todd, Captain Jack Sparrow (although he was kind of hot, still creepy,) Willy Wonka, The Mad Hatter. Must I go on?
6. And Helena Bonham Carter. In anything, ever...
You can usually find her alongside her creepy partner-in-crime, Johnny Depp. Bellatrix Lestrange and Marla Singer are probably her creepiest roles of all time.
7. Dr. Frank-N-Furter.
For those of you who haven't seen Rocky Horror Picture Show, let me just warn you, you may have to acquire a taste for this film. You either love it or hate it. It's impossible to be lukewarm. Regardless, Tim Curry is incredibly entertaining in this role and perfectly creepy in every way. Just look at those eyebrows. And his lipstick is flawless.
8. Rumpelstiltskin AKA Rumpel AKA The Beast.
ABC's Once Upon a Time depicts the beast from Beauty and the Beast as anything but the endearing, furry, wolf/bear/man in the Disney movie. Rumpel is a slimy, old, reptile that kind of resembles Old Gregg. He somehow pulls off dating Belle who is young enough to be his daughter. Even creepier.
And here's a link in case you're too young to know who Old Gregg is:
9. Cruella Deville.
I'm not sure who is creepier, Glenn Close or Disney's cartoon version, but this lady is nuts. She has a blood lust for puppies that is unparalleled. However, some might say she has a great sense of style. Personally, I dig the hair.
10. Frank Underwood.
Lastly, my current favorite, the one and only, President Francis Underwood from House of Cards. He's power-hungry, terrifying, completely self-absorbed, occasionally murderous, and yet, you have to appreciate him for his mind-blowing brilliance. Francis Underwood always gets what he wants, no matter the cost. I can respect that.
