We all know that given a proper script and apt direction even the antagonist or a side kick in a negative role can outshine the protagonists of a film. But there are very few actors who can be both bad and devilishly hot and good looking at the same time. Here is a list of such actors who inspired desire in us while playing killers on-screen. Note: This article is not meant to celebrate murderers or killers. It is meant to celebrate the actors who portrayed killers on-screen.
10. Amber Heard in ‘All the Boys Love Mandy Lane’ (2006)
Mandy Lane is a high school outcast who suddenly turns hot one summer, thanks to puberty, and naturally starts attracting all the boys in her school. However she has a devious plan in her mind as she has not forgotten those bullying and taunting when she was a geek not so long ago and the general humiliation that her ilk has to go through on the hands of the popular high school kids. Mandy feels enough is enough and takes matter into her own hands. There is a calm to her madness in the film and doesn’t for once gives us a hint of what’s going on in her mind, that is, until the very end. With her good looks and skimpy outfits, she is in your face and dangerous as well.
9. Skeet Ulrich in ‘Scream’ (1996)
The ‘Scream’ series by Wes Craven revolutionized the slasher movie genre so much so that it has become a staple mainstay of horror films in the 21st century. The basic premise is simple – a serial killer is on the loose murdering mostly young beautiful women and sometimes men too if they act too smart in order to protect a potential victim. But eventually the killer’s identity is revealed in the end. That’s a given. The character of Billy Loomis (the killer), in the first and undoubtedly the best installment in the series, played by actor Skeet Ulrich is one of a kind. He is a product of horror cinema. As someone who is obviously not stable due to personal problems in his life found a perfect way to vent out his anger by going on a killing spree and his source of inspiration is the horror movies that he is so clinically obsessed with. His best line in the film is – “Movies don’t create psychos. Movies make psychos more creative!”
