Stepfather 3 - Into the Chipper

First off, let me apologize for my absence. I've been working on a new website...wait for it....PLUG (the website is dead now) and Shmoogle Adsense has forced me to remove their ads from here. The passion for Greatest Movie Deaths is still there, but as you can imagine it's not what it used to be. But we shall press on! There's still Great Movie Deaths that need to be seen!

Our first entry into the Wood Chipper Movie Death Hall of Fame goes to the 1992 film Stepfather III. It's the worst film of the trilogy, but it just might have the best death scene of the three. You may remember the first Stepfather film starred Terry O'Quinn, who played John Locke on the TV series Lost. Terry O'Quinn actually was great in the role in the original Stepfather. The sequels on the other hand.... well let's just say they deserve the same fate as our victim here.

In this scene little Andy is being chased through plant nursery by his evil stepfather. When the stepfather climbs a ladder to look for him, Andy knocks him off it and into a wood chipper. The guy's hamburger meat right? Nope, he pops out of the wood chipper and almost drags Andy in. But mom comes just in time to pull Andy out of the bad guy's grasp before he's chewed up(very violently I may add) and splattered against the wall.

More Wood Chipper death scenes coming soon and check out the new site, WVG, we cover everything from Film, TV, and Video Games.

Greatest Deaths by Wood Chipper

You can never get enough wood chipper deaths. They're just so damn entertaining. Problem is that there just aren't very many GREAT ones. Perhaps the most famous death-by-chipper is from the 1996 Coen brothers film Fargo, but that's a big misconception. Carl (played by Steve Buscemi)is murdered by Gaear (Peter Stormare) with an axe, not a wood chipper. So unfortunately it doesn't count. That's why this week we'll be exploring some of the best deaths by wood chipper in cinema history.

Drive - Elevator Face Stomp

“The best kind of cinema is the one where action is long and dialogue short.” – John Ford

Drive isn’t your typical high-energy heist movie with explosions everywhere or witty one-liners every other line of conversation. The dialogue is actually quite sparse, as is the feel for the rest of the movie. Long moments of silence and little action are punctuated by moments of really brutal action that are emphasized by really on-point sound effects. It makes for an almost dreamlike experience.

The film also has an amazing 80s-esque synth soundtrack impeccably integrated into the film along with really solid acting all around. The story itself isn’t anything overly original, but they way it’s all put together is brilliant. The movie is easily one of the best films of the year and the hero may very well be one of the most badass characters in years. This scene simply doesn't do the film justice. Go watch and support this movie!

The Good the Bad and the Ugly - Shoot! Don't Talk

Don't you just hate it when the bad guy has the hero in his sights, but instead of killing him immediately he rambles on about his plans for world domination? It just may be the biggest movie cliche ever and Sergio Leone knew it....

Shark Night 3D (2011) - Jet Ski Escape

Poor Blake thought he could get away on a jet ski, but he didn't account for a giant great white shark to breach from the lake and pluck him off the jet ski. One of the highlight from the disappointing Shark Night 3D.

Final Destination 5 - Bridge Collapse Scene

Say what you will about the Final Destination films, but there is never a lack of great death scenes in those movies. The newest is no exception. The bridge scene was surprisingly well done, better than the previous two film's "vision disasters." One highlight is the death of Peter(Miles Fisher). As he's hanging onto a railing of the collapsing bridge, a truck full of construction materials rolls backwards above him. Suddenly a jolt from the bridge causes some rebar to fall out of the truck impaling Peter before he splatters onto the concrete substructure below.

Final Destination 5 - Death Scene

And the first of the crappy cam recordings have arrived. The horrible quality and bad camera work shouldn't stop you from spoiling yourself with another Final Destination 5 death scene.
