    1. I don’t necessarily think there has to be a long back story but soluhd we accept in fiction that villains are mere killing machines with no reason to kill except for love of money or sadism. I blame this on Steven Spielberg who began this trend with that story about the driverless truck or with Jaws. It may make a good thriller but does it really make a good story. Shouldn’t we want well-developed villains? Shouldn’t we require of them what we require of our protagonist?
