Science fiction films are responsible for some of the most memorable movie villains of all time. But for every Darth Vader and Predator, there are other villains who do not get the recognition they deserve. These are memorable characters that are often left in the shadow of more prominent baddies. Whether a memorable side kick or the villain in a sequel, many science fiction villains are criminally underrated. And we feel that needs to change. So here then are 10 underrated sci-fi movie villains that deserve some recognition.
10. Gozer – Ghostbusters (1984)
When people think of the classic 1984 movie Ghostbusters, they tend to remember the performances of Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis. And when they think of a villain in the movie, people’s minds tend to wander back to the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. And all of that is fine, but let’s not forget the real villain in the movie—Gozer. The evil spirit that takes over the body of actress Sigourney Weaver and threatens to take control of the world. While Gozer was not as funny as the other characters in the movie, the villain provided some narrative heft to the movie and a sense of menace that the film sorely needed. And who can forget the voice of Gozer? Probably the most underrated sci-fi villain in a horror/comedy/action movie ever.http://www.fanpop.com/clubs/ghostbusters/images/33868582/title/gozer-photo Source: Fanpop.com
