Satan, Lucifer, the prince of darkness, the prince of light, a fallen angel, the devil himself. This legendary figure is the true king of evil, and any actor portraying Satan in a movie has big shoes to fill. 

They're important and highly theatrical shoes, however, which is why performances of him tend to be legendary, over the top, or both. Not just anyone can do it.

Some notable actors have made the character so deeply their own that it's easy to believe Hell is real. It certainly seems plausible when Jack Nicholson is playing a version of Satan who retains the actor's signature dangerous charm.

Which portrayal of Satan do you think would impress the Prince of Darkness himself? Watch this video to discover the top three cinematic versions of Satan from a trio of wildly different films.
