One of the best things about watching a movie is that it allows us to suspend our disbelief and to encounter weird and bizarre characters that we’re unlikely to know in our everyday lives. Granted, a few of the characters on this list are downright terrifying, but they’d certainly make the world a more interesting place.

1.

Pussy Galore - Goldfinger

Pussy Galore was played by Honor Blackman in James Bond flick “Goldfinger”. The Judo-fighting blonde bombshell is the ringleader of a criminal all-female syndicate of pilots called Pussy Galore’s Flying Circus. The character was originally written as a lesbian in the Goldfinger novel, and Honor Blackman has since commented that she tried to play the role as if the character had been abused in the past.

Lee Geum-Ja (Lee Young Ae) is the femme fatale in Chan-Wook Park’s Sympathy for Lady Vengeance. Having falsely confessed to the murder of a small child, Geum-Ja fakes a religious conversion in prison while she is, in fact, actively killing another inmate. When released, she methodically and terrifyingly seeks vengeance on the man who actually committed the crime, later enlisting the parents of other children he’s killed to help with his brutal execution.

Max Cohen - Pi

Max Cohen (Sean Gullett) is a number theory expert who believes that graphic natural phenomena results in predictable patterns. He is attempting to find a pattern in the fluctuations of the stock market. Additionally, he suffers from crippling cluster headaches as a result of staring into the sun as a child, and suffers from extreme paranoia. Arguably driven insane by his own genius, he ultimately lobotomizes himself with an electric drill.
