While evil in most of the films is carried out without any word being sad. But a mighty and mean one liner makes the scene more interesting. Here are the best devious lines ever uttered in movies. We don’t recommend trying any of them out.

“I visited your home this morning after you’d left. I tried to play husband. I tried to taste the life of a simple man. It didn’t work out, so I took a souvenir… her pretty head.” – John Doe (Kevin Spacey)

“Oh, yes, there will be blood.” – Jigsaw (Tobin Bell) in Saw II

“You underestimate the power of the Dark Side. If you will not fight, then you will meet your destiny!” – Darth Vader (James Earl Jones) in The return of the Jedi


“Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You’re a plague and we are the cure.” – Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving) in The Matrix

“Don’t you turn your back on me, Harry Potter! I want you to look at me when I kill you! I want to see the light leave your eyes!” – Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) in Harry Potter and Goblet of Fire

“A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.” – Hannibal Lector (Anthony Hopkins) in The Silence of the Lambs


“Your mother’s in here, Karras. Would you like to leave a message? I’ll see that she gets it.” – Pazuzu (Linda Blair) in The Exorcist

“And the library? Gone… sealed off, brick-by-brick. We’ll have us a little book barbecue in the yard. They’ll see the flames for miles. We’ll dance around it like wild Injuns! You understand me?” – Warden Norton (Bob Gunton) in The Shawshank Redemption

“I don’t give a good f*** what you know, or don’t know, but I’m gonna torture you anyway, regardless. Not to get information. It’s amusing, to me, to torture a cop.” – Mr. Blonde (Michael Madsen) in Reservoir Dogs


“I take no pleasure in taking life if it’s from a person who doesn’t care about it.” – Stansfield (Gary Oldman) in Leon

“You didn’t let me finish my sentence. I said I’m not gonna hurt ya. I’m just gonna bash your brains in.” – Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) in The Shining

“Hunt them down. Do not stop until they are found. You do not know pain, you do not know fear. You will taste man-flesh.” – Saruman (Christopher Lee) in Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring

“Do you want to know why I use a knife? Guns are too quick. You can’t savour all the… little emotions. In… you see, in their last moments, people show you who they really are.” – The Joker (Heath Ledger) in The Dark Knight


“I’m a killer, a murdering bastard. And there are consequences to breaking the heart of a murdering bastard.” – Bill (David Carradine) in Kill Bill

“Imagine what horrible fate awaits my enemies when I would gladly kill any of my own men for victory.” – Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) in 300
