Needless to repeat it, gingers have always fascinated or intrigued people and it is for that reason that you’ll find many characters with red hair in literature and films. What is interesting is that the gingers are almost never a second character, in general they either have the main character, the hero, or the main bad guy role.Therefor, here is the TOP 5 of the scariest gingers in the history of cinema.
Madame Medusa (The rescuers, 1977)
This greedy, redheaded wicked pawnshop owner, kidnaps young orphan Penny in order to to pursue her hunt of the Devil’s Eye diamond. She is helped in her quest by Mr Snoops and her two scary crocodiles. Totally hysterical and a crazy driver, Madame Medusa is also very girly as you can tell by her fake eye lashes, red lipstick and fur coat.
Poison Ivy (Batman #181, 1966 et Batman & Robin, 1997)
Poison Ivy is a DC Comics supervillainess who is primarily an enemy of Batman. She is depicted as one of the most prominent eco-terrorists. He is obsessed with plants, botany and the environment. Capable of creating the deadliest potions, she sometimes spreads them on her lips so she can poison her victims as she kisses them (hey, is that why she’s called Poison Ivy??). She uses toxins from plants and mind controlling pheromones for her criminal activities (although she cannot control Batman’s mind – I mean, common, he’s Batman). In 1997 she was portrayed by Uma Thurman as a very feminine character, wearing nylon stockings and a dress made of leaves, always green. When I tell you green is our color, I’m not lying!
Syndrome (The Incredibles, 2004)
AKA Buddy Pine, this angry little red haired man was not always that evil. Little, he worshiped M. Incredible and would have given to become his side kick, but failed. He has no natural superpowers altough is genius intelligence and engineering skills have enabled him to build weapons and rocketboots which make him a formidable foe. And when you think that with just a little bit of therapy we could have avoided all of that…
The Riddler (Batman, 1966 and Batman Forever, 1995)
Played by Jim Carrey the Riddler is just another one of Batman’s foes. Obsessed by riddles and enigmas from a very young age, he delights in forewarning both Batman and the police of his capers by sending them complex clues. With this self conscious use of gimmick, the Riddler’s crimes are flamboyant and ostentatious. He stands out thanks to his red hair and his hat and green onesie with black question marks on it. He often jokes and plays around which was highly criticized because this character is originally very different than the one of the Joker.
Chucky (Child’s play, 1988)
Here is, in my opinion, the scariest ginger in History! Obvioulsy ones who have not seen the film and would decide to watch it now would be in danger of pissing themselves of laughter. But in the 80′s it was chilling! Here’s a proof with that video : VIDEO. Charles Lee Ray is a notorious serial killer whose spirit inhabits a Good Guy doll and continuously tries to transfer his soul from the doll to a human body.
