20 best American Horror Story villains to grace our screens

1 of 11

American Horror Story: Apocalypse will be here before we know it. As we get ready for the Antichrist to return, it’s time to look back over previous seasons. Who were the greatest American Horror Story villains in the last seven seasons?

The Antichrist is back on American Horror Story. The last time we saw him was in the very first season and he was certainly the character we wanted to see the minute we were told this season would be the highly anticipated Coven and Murder House crossover.

A trailer has now been released to give us the first glimpse of this villain, but he doesn’t seem like the only one. Sarah Paulson is taking on the role of Venable, who enjoys enacting punishment to those seeking sanctuary in her home after the apocalypse. She may be a foe to be reckoned with.

Then there’s Kathy Bates, who also looks to be taking on another villainous role. These three characters have a lot to live up to. There have been some dastardly, evil, horrible people over the years; some of them the best villains on the whole of TV.

With that in mind and to get ready for the American Horror Story: Apocalypse premiere next week, it’s time to look back over all the villains over the year. Here are the 20 best villains throughout the series so far.
