Dr. Carl Hill is the main villain of Re-Animator, with Herbert West acting as the secondary antagonist - unlike the true neutral West Carl is an outright villain with very little redeeming values who acts as an actual force of evil in the world, while West simply acts as a force of misguided good that produces horror as a result.
Dr. Carl Hill began life as an arrogant and lustful brain doctor but did not show signs of becoming the truly monstrous figure he was until Herbert West arrived and challenged his work, claiming he was little more than a copycat and that his work on brain death was "outdated".
At first enraged by West's apparent upstart nature he would become fascinated when Herbert's work actually proved to work and blackmailed West into handing over his work, however West decapitated Hill.
Yet, due to his insanity, West would reanimate West's body and head separately, unfortunately Hill proved to be a unique case and could control his body - which allowed him to use it to sneak up on West and escape.
At this point Hill's true, evil nature is exposed in full as he uses mind-control to force Hasley's reanimated corpse into kidnapping his own daughter, who Hill ties to a table and rapes - by the time West and Dan arrive at the morgue Hill has managed to amass an army of lobotomized zombies by which to attack the group, planning on doing the same to everyone in the world (and effectively become a mad "god" among the dead).
Ultimately Hill was defeated when Hasley's love for his daughter broke through even Hill's mind-control and he went on a berserk fury, attacking Hill's minions and ultimately crushing Hill's skull with his bare hands in vengeance for his rape of Megan.
This did not end Hill entirely however as his now headless body remained, which West killed via overdosing on the reanimator serum - mutating it horrifically but also destroying it as the zombies, now free of Hill's mental control, went on a bloody rampage.
