9 Female Villains With Cool, Calm Exteriors That Totally Creep Us Out

Everybody loves a bad guy. But to be honest, there’s something about the evil genius of a great lady villain that we love (to hate) even more. Lurking beneath her poised facade is an eerie ability to scare our socks off when we least expect it. In fact, the more polished and fabulous her exterior, the scarier it is when she loses her cool and bares her claws.

We’ve teamed up with Investigation Discovery’s “Secret Lives Of Stepford Wives” to bring you 9 of the most unexpectedly terrifying female characters to ever appear on the big screen.

Brace yourself: These ladies are as mad as hell ... and as cold as ice.
