    Vic Van Wrinkle is the hidden later true main antagonist and strict headmaster who appears in Horrid Henry: The Movie. He is possibly based on Mr. Nerdon. He owns Brick House School. He wants children's parents to be paying him a lot of money for their children to go there. In the end, Vic Van Wrinkle and his partners are sent to jail.

    He was played by Richard E. Grant.

    Why He's Intentionally a Greedy Headmaster

    1. He isn't even very threatening as he mostly just brags about his evil plan while getting a duo of corrupt school inspectors to try and frame Henry.
    2. He fails to notice Peter tying his shoelaces together which causes him to fall out the window while trying to run away.
    3. He is greedy.
    4. He is mean-spirited.
    5. He is a generic doomsday villain.

    Redeeming Qualities

    1. He gets his comeuppance at the end.
    2. Richard E. Grant did a passable job portraying him.
