In science fiction, there's nothing more horrifying than the hive mind, simply because this fairly common trope doesn't involve just a singular terror, but an entire (sometimes practically ubiquitous) network. There are nuances to the hive mind that make audiences cringe, regardless of the era. There's obviously the overwhelming horror of facing an army full of people thinking and acting as one flock of creeps, but the idea that you can be living your life and suddenly your body is being used to carry out what some other entity wants is genuinely upsetting.
Which of the villainous hive minds from cinema are the most ruthless and aggressive? Some of the most famous cinematic hive minds want to envelop everyone and everything, but there are others that just want to destroy. Not all hive minds are created equally, so it's up to you to decide which are the most efficient in their single-minded journey for the success of the hive.
