Horror Villains Who Aren't As Bad As They Seem

Most horror movie villains epitomize evil, becoming the living embodiment of hatred, bloodlust, vengeance, anger or sheer psychopathia, but believe it or not there are some villains who simply don’t deserve all the hate.

These misunderstood monsters are simply acting on instinct, following their primal urges to devour primates who get in their way, or they’re simply searching for some existential thrills in their painful afterlife.

Cracked has put together a philosophically (and biologically) compelling article about 5 Horror Villains Who Aren't As Bad As They Seem, which may make you rethink your position on what makes a horror villain tick.

I'll give Predator credit for strictly only killing people who are armed, giving an easy-out to folks who don't want to play the most dangerous game... But as for the rest, who cares WHY they are motivated to kill you? A tiger may just be doing what comes naturally to it, but I'd still curse it, try my damnedest to survive, and kill it if possible.
