It's almost Halloween, the season for horror films, but some horror villains have become the victims themselves....... of their outdated tech! These movie bad guys once had it all, hapless victims to terrorize, a dastardly plot to do it with and a shiny new gimmick powered by the joys of modern tech. Sorry Bad Guys, but movie villains of today must be able to outsmart any teen with a smartphone and a penchant for outing plot holes on twitter, systematically smashing plot lines and narrative ploys like a google sponsored Godzilla. This list of villains can currently be found vacantly haunting the graveyard of obsolete nasty rotter's, hoping for a remake to come and resurrect them.
