The Great Villain Blogathon Schedule


Mwahahaha! The Great Villain Blogathon is almost here!

Starting next Monday (April 13), we’ll be focusing on the Bad Guys in film and why we love (or love to hate) these scoundrels.

Below is the schedule of miscreants. Because some of these dastardly folks are so popular, there were some duplicate choices. In that case, we went with your second choice if your first selection was already taken. (In other words, “We are altering the deal. Pray we don’t alter it any further.”)

Just let us know if there are any oversights in the schedule below.

    • Hi Kristina! I couldn’t locate a copy of Born To Be Bad so I’m going to do Stanley Timberlake from In This Our Life instead. I had her listed as an alternate just in case. I’ll do Christobel next time. I hope this is ok with you. I don’t believe it’s already been chosen. This sort of threw me off. If I could have an extra day, that would be great. If not, no biggie. You’ll have it on the 15th.



  1. Reblogged this on shadowsandsatin and commented:
    According to author John Hodgman, “The villain of any story is often the most compelling character.”

    In keeping with that belief, we are pleased to announce that the countdown to the 2015 Great Villain Blogathon is ON!! From Monday, April 13th through Friday, April 17th, I will join with Ruth from Silver Screenings and Kristina from Speakeasy to host this event about some of the most villainous villains in all of screendom!

    Below is the lineup of posts — if you see yours and your second choice is listed, it’s because your first choice was so darned dastardly that he/she was already taken. (And if you see any oversights, just let us know!)

    Meanwhile, lock your doors and set your alarms — the villains are coming!

    This starts on Monday, and is obviously not to be missed — as you’d expect, a good number of the villains/villainesses are of noirish interest. Click below for the full lineup.

  3. Ruth, we’re looking forward to crushing the evil, sadist Nick Ferraro from VS His Kind of Woman! We’re looking forward to get the bad guys, as well as Vincent Price helping Robert Mitchum when things get really crazy! Thanks for including we of Team Bartilucci ! 😀


  4. Just finished my post! Hope it wasn’t too late for the 14th, WordPress’s timezone is cray! Thanks for setting this up 😀 I’ll add links to post to your sites ASAP as well


  5. Darn! I had completely forgotten to write the second post ( You’re Never Too Young ). I was busy preparing for the CMBA Films of the 1930s blogathon and it completely slipped my mind. I’m so sorry about that. 😦 – Constance Metzinger


  6. BRAVA to you all for your great Blogathon, chock-full of great Villains, including some that even I didn’t know! Also, we of Team Bartilcci give oodles of thanks for your kind kudos for HIS KIND OF WOMAN! You go, girls! 😀 This time next year? 😀


Start Singin', Mac!
