I was going to suggest Bomb Voyage from The Incredibles. Just Kidding.
Although I think you'll find film villains more close to what Antonio was asking about, since the medium tends to cartoonize literary villains for cinematic effect.
Hannibal Lecter springs to mind, amongst others. Buffalo Bill in that same film for that matter. Jack Torance in The Shining, although the spirits haunting the grounds probably the true villain there.
