It’s the final day of the Great Villain Blogathon 2016. Before you peruse today’s huge and diverse group of movie nasties, your hosts, Ruth of Silver Screenings, Karen of Shadows & Satin, and Kristina of Speakeasy want to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part, visited the participating blogs, and helped spread the word via #Villains2016. A blogathon is only as good as the people who join in, and you all made this a great 3rd year of the event!
The #Villains2016 main page has been updated to archive all 6 daily recaps so you can revisit the posts anytime. Bloggers who post after this, just let us know and you will be added to this recap.
