The Mistress Of All Evil

Ready for a sneak preview of today's show? I am!

Today is the first day of our 2009 summer movie festival (check out past years of favorite films here) with Murray Horwitz, and we're kicking it off with the on-screen villains we love. My absolute, hands-down favorite is Maleficent from Disney's Sleeping Beauty, the self-proclaimed "Mistress of All Evil." She's terrifying, awe-inspiring, and as villainous as they come. I dare you to watch the clip above and not get the willies!
