When you see Hitler, you know it's a rom-com.

Want a movie villain audiences can instantly hate? Pin a swastika on them! Nobody likes a Nazi! Quentin Tarantino certainly doesn't. Inglourious Basterds, his new "spaghetti western" disguised as a World War II movie, follows a group of pissed-off Jewish American soldiers on a bloody hunt for Nazis. You might feel uncomfortable and ugly watching somebody else get scalped, but Hitler's boys in blue eyes? Fuck 'em. Pass the popcorn.

Not all Nazis are created equally loathsome, mind you. Some are even more vile, which is why Complex brings you a look back at the most heinous movie Nazis. If it ain't rough, it ain't Reich...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DR. CHRISTEN SZELL (MARATHON MAN, 1976)
• Laurence Olivier plays a Nazi war criminal hiding in the U.S. with diamonds he stole from the Jews he exterminated at Auschwitz. If that doesn't leave a bad taste in your mouth, his dental torture techniques will.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

nazi_apt_pupil

KURT DUSSANDER (APT PUPIL, 1998)
• When the boy next door, who recognizes him as a fugitive Nazi war criminal, blackmails him into discussing the death camps, he sates his reawakened jones for sadism by stabbing a hobo and putting animals in his gas oven. Curiosity is not what kills the cat.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

nazi_schindlers_list

COMMANDANT AMON GOETH (SCHINDLER'S LIST, 1993)
• At the suggestion of businessman Oskar Schindler, who says that showing mercy, pardoning Jews for minor infractions rather than summarily executing them, is real power, the head of the Plaszów concentration camp pardons a 14-year-old boy. In the end, he prefers the high-power of his rifle and shoots the boy in the back while he's walking away.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

nazi_ilsa

ILSA (ILSA, SHE WOLF OF THE SS, 1974)
• The voluptuous blond nympho head of a Nazi-run P.O.W. camp, she rapes prisoners at night, castrating those who bust off and fail to please her. So...dome is out of the question?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

nazi_glass_cage

KLAUS (IN A GLASS CAGE, 1987)
• The most heinous act attempted by this self-loathing former Nazi doctor, pedophile, and child murderer is suicide. Fortunately his sky dive only paralyzes him from the neck down and we get to watch a disturbed local boy torture him. Another Hollywood happy ending—bah!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

nazi_night_porter1

MAXIMILIAN THEO ALDORFER (THE NIGHT PORTER, 1974)
• When a former Nazi SS officer working as a porter runs into the female concentration camp survivor he had a "relationship" with, it brings back fond memories, like that time he sexually dominated her, or that other time he presented her with the decapitated head of a guard who was harassing her. Some guys are just suckers for love.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

nazi_downfall

ADOLPH HITLER (DOWNFALL, 2004)
• He's Adolph motherfuckin' Hitler, the most high-anus of them all.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

nazi_frontiers_21

LE VON GEISLER, GOETZ, GILBERTE (FRONTIER(S), 2007)
• Hey, you know what's more evil than torture-loving Nazis? Torture-loving Nazi cannibals. Plain hard to stomach.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

nazi_shock_waves

Commander (SHOCK WAVES, 1977)
• Jaws? Pussy. Orca? Straight bitch. Underwater Nazi zombies? Now that's a reason to stay on dry land.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

nazi_boys_brazil

JOSEF MENGELE (THE BOYS FROM BRAZIL, 1978)
• While hiding in South America, the infamous Nazi death-camp doctor uses Hitler's DNA to create Adolph clones that he hopes will rule the world. Personally, we would have started with Gisele, but that's just us.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BONUS: HEINOUS MOVIE NEO-NAZIS
nazi_american_history_x

DEREK VINYARD (AMERICAN HISTORY X)
• When three black men attempt to steal his car, this Skinhead shoots and kills one, then wounds another and smashes his head open with a vicious curb-stomping. That's what you call taking it to the streets too far.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

nazi_the_believer

DANNY BALINT (THE BELIEVER, 2001)
• A self-hating Jew who believes Jewish people are weak hides his true identity and rolls with neo-Nazis, defiling synagogues and assaulting his own people. Somebody should've told him that self-love is always in palm's reach.
