Marked for Death - Overkill!

As far as the fight scenes go, Marked for Death is arguably Seagal's best film where Aikido is on display in full view. You'll see Seagal stab, shoot, throw, cut, and even decapitate the bad guys. In this scene, Seagal goes mano-a-mano with one of the Screwface twins. He first pushes his eyeballs back into his brain. Then Seagal snaps Screwface’s spine over his knee and throws him down an elevator shaft. I’m pretty sure he died.

The Untouchables - Baseball

As Capone speaks, his lieutenants, sitting around the table smoking cigars, smile in agreement to what he is saying.
"I get nowhere unless the team wins. Team! Team!"
After the second lieutenant repeats,“team,” Capone, who has come up behind him with the baseball bat, starts whacking him repeatedly on the head, presumably for not being a team player. The scene ends with the lieutenant lying on the table, as blood from his head spreads out across the white table cloth. The best part is after the second wack, if you look closely, blood spurts on the table like a water fountain. Classic!

Commando - Tool Shed Scene

In this scene from Commando, Arnold goes on a rampage with some tool shed items. First he drops down from the ceiling and stabs a guy with a pitch fork. He then throws some saw blades at one guy's head taking off his scalp, and one into another guy's chest. He then grabs the axe and a machete. He uppercuts a guy in the yarbles with an axe and uses the machete to chop another guys arm off. If you haven't seen Commmando, then you've missed quite the body count.

Day of the Dead - Greatest Death by Zombie Ever

I'm not quite sure how to say this, but I love zombies. I love anything related to zombies, in fact from now on I'm going to capitalize the word "Zombie" because I love them so much. I try to avoid posting the Zombie-eats-guy death scenes, because if it was up to me, the top 10 best movie deaths would all involve Zombies. But I can't contain myself any longer, which is why I'm posting my first Zombie movie death scene. In this clip from Day of the Dead, the malicious Capt. Rhodes flees from "Bub" who has aquired a handgun. Rhodes tries to escape through a door, but is ambushed by a group of zombies that tear him to pieces. But not before Bub shoots him. So let's recap: guy gets shot by Zombie, then gets eaten by a group of Zombies. Yeah, best Zombie death ever.

Final Destination 3 - Alternate Death Scenes?

I hate it when the only special features on a DVD is the damn trailer. So, for extra feature freaks like me there's the Final Destination 3 DVD. The best part is the "choose your fate" option which brings up a new screen at key points, asking the viewer to make a choice for the character onscreen. Depending on that choice, the viewer will either see the event as shown in the theatrical version, or an alternate scene that could change the rest of the movie. The director, James Wong had this feature in mind as he was filming the movie, and he deliberately filmed different versions for each death scene. The first clip is the alternate version of Lewis' death without the suspense of "how is he gonna die." Isn't it funny how the blood always sprays all over the friends face? Is that a written horror movie rule?

Eraser - Alligator Rampage

Eraser is what you expect from an Arnold Schwarzenegger film, two hours of mindless nonstop CGI action with preposterous situations, a body count in the dozens, and epic Arnold one-liners. My kind of movie.

In this scene, Arnie shoots the Alligator tank in the middle of a shootout at the New York City Zoo. The Gators must have been pissed because they go on a rampage. Not Industrial Light & Magic's best work, but decent, I've seen worse. One guy gets his arm ripped off, another gets his head crushed by the Gators. After the appetizers, the gator goes after Arnie. After a short scuffle, he shoots the alligator through the head, and gives the classic line, "your luggage."

Starship Troopers - "They Sucked his Brains Out!"

It's official, I am a Paul Verhoeven nuthugger. I don't know what it is, maybe it's the amount of extreme violence in his movies or the fact that he has directed two of my all-time favorite action films ever, Robocop and Total Recall. This guy was the first nominee ever to actually show up at the Razzie Awards, when he personally accepted his Worst Director "award" for Showgirls. Now that's class.
Paul also directed the CGI movie death extravaganza Starship Troopers. In this scene, Zander(Patrick Muldoon) gives his last words to the brain bug before it stabs him in the head and sucks his brains out.

Michael Ironside is also in this movie, in fact he gets his legs ripped off and in the film Total Recall(also directed by Verhoeven) both his arms get severed.

Anybody else notice the Millenium Falcon on the backside of the starship, Rodger Youngs' bridge? Look for it the next time you watch Starship Troopers.

Hostel II - Lost Manhood

Now technically I'm not sure this counts as a death, but I'm sure he died a little bit on the inside. Our victim broke the cardinal rule: Never piss off a woman holding a pair of scissors to your manhood. I don't usually warn people about videos on this site, but I'm gonna have to for this one.
