7 Movie Characters Who Snapped

Senator Trent – Hard to Kill


Senator Trent is an exception to this list. He didn’t snap and turn bad, the man was bad even before taking office. Working with unsavory thugs and holding shady meets on the docks, the politician even went so far as to order the murder of police officers and their families. You’re supposed to be kissing babies, Trent. Not murdering them in their cribs.

HAL 9000 – 2001: A Space Odyssey

The Heuristically programmed ALgorithmic computer is an artificial intelligence that interacts with the astronaut crew of the Discovery One spacecraft in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. When HAL experiences a few subtle malfunctions it is decided to shut the system down to prevent something cataclysmic from happening. That doesn’t sit too well with HAL who decides to murder his astronaut oppressors instead. I’ve feared technology ever since seeing this film. That’s why I use a French press.
