Cube - Cubed

If there's one movie you want to see with movie deaths galore, it's Cube. This scene is the first of many deadly traps in the movie. Our victim walks into a room, the trap sets off and a swinging wire mesh slices him into small convenient cubes of flesh.

Jurassic Park - T-rex eats Lawyer

It's strange, Donald Gennaro was the only character to get eaten by the T-rex in Jurassic Park. The first big screen movie death by a computer generated dinosaur is a good one. After he freaks out and ditches the kids in the jeep, our lawyer friend hides in the bathroom. Only to have it collapse around him, leaving him out in the open......on the toilet.

Hellraiser 3: Hell on Earth - Skin Rip +++++plus New Hellraiser Remake Coming Out Soon

Since I was a kid, I've loved horror movies. Non-stop I would watch one after the other, none of them really frightened me, until I saw three movies that scarred me for life. The first being The Exorcist(I still haven't outgrown that one). The second film was Night of the Living Dead, although now I have a fetish for Zombie movies, thank you George A. Romero. The third film was Hellraiser, let me tell you my brothers, I slept with the night lite on for a long time fearing a Cenobite was lurking in the dark just waiting to shoot razor sharp chains at me and rip off my skin. Yeah, it was like that. The Hellraiser films actually featured a ton of sequels, not worthy enough to compete with the likes of Jason and Freddy though. The good news is that Clive Barker is remaking the original Hellraiser for 2008. "There are some areas of the first movie where I think we can be a lot more intense and a lot more scary," he said. "It will not be simply a reworking or re-shooting of the first picture." And he’s also hoping for an increased budget would allow for more special effects as the original was made for less than $1 million.

Here's a list of the Hellraiser movies in order, haven't seen all of them? That's probably because the latter ones were straight to video releases
Hellraiser (1987)
Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988)
Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth (1992)
Hellraiser IV: Bloodline (1996)
Hellraiser V: Inferno (2000)
Hellraiser VI: Hellseeker (2002)
Hellraiser VII: Deader (2005)
Hellraiser VIII: Hellworld (2005)

New Rambo Movie - A Gorefest?

Now, I'm not a critic or anything, but I doubt the new Rambo movie is gonna win any Oscars. That doesn't mean it isn't going to be entertaining as hell and by "entertaining as hell," you know what I mean my fellow movie death lovers. If you haven't watched the new Rambo promo, then you've missed out on probably the most violent movie trailer ever. Here's a clip from Rambo called "never give up." In it you'll see why this movie is rated R for strong graphic bloody violence and grisly images. The movie comes out today, so if any of you see it, leave a comment and spoil us with your favorite death scene.

Apocalypto - Deleted Panther Mauling

Ever seen a panther chew a man's face off? Well then, you obviously haven't seen Apocalypto yet. If it's one thing about Mel Gibson movies, it's that they are chock-full of great movie deaths. Braveheart, The Road Warrior, We Were Soldiers, The Patriot, and let's not forget Passion of the Christ. I don't know, Mel must have some raging anger inside his psyche or something. The first clip is the original cougar mauling in the film, but if thats not gory enough for you, check out this deleted scene.

Psycho - The Shower Scene

Before the Nightmares, before Friday the 13th, before Holloween, there was Psycho. Thanks to Hitchcock, the slasher movie lives on. This scene shocked movie audiences in more ways than one. Seeing Janet Leigh taking a shower was atypical by 1960 standards. Killing off the star of the movie was unimaginable by Hollywood standards. In fact, this might actually be one of the most important scenes in movie history. Hitchcock was a genius, but he was also crazy and obsessive about his films. Alfred Hitchcock bought the rights to the novel anonymously from Robert Bloch for only $9,000. He then bought up as many copies of the novel as he could to keep the ending a secret(good thing the internet didn't exist back then).

Forget about the rumors you heard or read on Wikipedia: No, Hitchcock did not arrange for the water to suddenly go ice-cold when the attack started.

The stabbing scene in the shower is reported to have taken seven days to shoot using 70 different camera angles

Hitchcock originally envisioned the shower sequence as completely silent, but Bernard Herrmann went ahead and scored it anyway and after Hitchcock heard it, he immediately changed his mind.

Yes, the blood was Bosco chocolate syrup.

Contrary to popular belief, the knife does penetrate flesh, albiet for only 3 frames.

As you may know, there's going to be a remake of a couple Hitchcock films, mainly The Birds. The film is in pre-production and is being directed by Martin Campbell, the same guy who directed Casino Royale and Vertical Limit. Lets hope it's a little different than the Psycho remake.
