In any self-respecting adventure story, there is always a nasty antagonist. Whether he is human or not, whether he has superpowers or not, one thing is for sure: he is fearsome because he is hiding, planning sinister and evil deeds in mysterious and impenetrable places.

These are indeed recurring mechanisms in the stories, even if, in the reality that surrounds us, it is not impossible to find something real and tangible that transports us to these atmospheres. Ask the members of the Reddit group for Evil Buildings , a space where thousands of users share photos of the most disturbing and dystopian buildings that exist, the ones that would be perfect for making a movie and housing the villain. Skyscrapers without windows, dark and mysterious pyramids, “bewitched” buildings with strange reflections: there is something for everyone. Are you ready to discover these “evil” buildings?

It’s located in Kuwait, and whoever designed it certainly didn’t think of a pleasing aesthetic sense …

More than in the real world, this building seems like something out of science fiction, with its vapor, colors, lights and shadows.

Who knows who designed it and who lives there, but it certainly makes up for it with a beautiful, well-kept lawn!

Did this building come to life? He doesn’t sound very friendly, does he?

With all this fog and gray, the last place we want to be is this bridge.

Impossible not to immediately think of a scene from a movie, looking at this skyscraper!

It looks like it, but it actually exists. It is located in Rome, Italy, and is the headquarters of a bank.

#13. The skyscraper is watching you. And that is not reassuring.

#14. If you immediately thought of a James Bond movie, you are not alone!

In reality, it is just a fire station in the province of Bolzano, Italy.

#15. It might be better not to get too close, right?

image credit: Ayo-Glam/reddit

A rather disturbing house, it could be populated by super-villains!

#16. Spaceship or real building?

image credit: reddit

It is indeed a real building, located in Belgrade. With this fog, everything is definitely terrifying, isn’t it?

#17. This tower does not seem very quiet …

Maybe it’s time to go into hiding!

#18. Osaka’s mysterious Umeda Sky Tower, seen from below, can only fascinate and worry at the same time.

Have you ever seen buildings like this? Sometimes, in the right light and at the right angle, they look like the headquarters of a shady character, don’t you think?
