30. Jane Hudson (What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?)
She wasn’t a mass murderer, a vicious gangster, or a supernatural sorceress. However, Baby Jane Hudson still ranks as one of cinema’s most sinister villains. Bette Davis throws subtlety to the wind in the flamboyant title role of this aging-starlet standard. Her psycho former child actor persona sticks in your mind not only for her memorably schizoid outbursts (parakeets beware), but for the ferocious way Davis battles costar and real-life archenemy Joan Crawford for the spotlight.
