On horror and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest has been poking at my mind since I watched it a week ago. As much as I try to distance myself from it, that movie keeps on returning.
I’ve been thinking about what makes a horrific villain.
Nurse Ratched is one of the top.
Her quiet nature is disquieting, especially the way that she has all of the characters enthralled. They’re so afraid of her and what she will do to them. She drives one character to suicide, makes everyone miserable…such a good villain.
I’ll need to watch this one again.
