In contrast to the other thread that drifted from its original query, what did you think were truly chilling villains? Are they so rare? I thought Sauron was pretty evil but not chilling. He was too much of a background characters for that. Some of the Nazgul were chilling, as was the Balrog, but none of them were truly "badass". I'm not necessarily thinking of villains that were powerful, although any input there would be appreciated as well. Perhaps there are characters that really gave you the creeps and/or had some truly nefarious intentions. I haven't really read much of Donaldson but I thought that Lord Foul might be a candidate...?
