This notorious scene stands out as one of the most gruesome of the 80's slasher films. Tom Savini was in top form when he created this famous massacre in The Burning. An underrated classic that luckily did not go down the road in having 7 sequels and a remake(even though it is itself considered a "ripoff" of Friday the 13th). The scene is not dark or shadowy, it's a straight up mass murder in the daytime aided and abetted by the gore FX of Tom Savini.

In this scene, our helpless female victim is wading waste deep in Crystal Lake after dropping a wallet in the water. The girl spots Jason from afar and mistakes him for her prankster friend Shelly. Making excellent use of the film's 3-D gimmickry, Jason shoots a harpoon straight at the camera — and into Vera's left eye socket.

It's a pretty overused formula now, but always good for a great movie death:
Child is in imminent danger, hero saves child, but hero is suddenly killed in the process, child screams.
In this scene from Jaws 2, after the giant shark brings down a helicopter, everybody panics and little Sean falls into the water. Our hero Marge(Martha Swatek) quickly goes into the water and heaves him onto a floating hull, but the shark devours her before she can pull herself up.
Marge has joined the many characters throughout cinematic history know as the "Sacrificial Hero"

In the film's conclusion, as a resurrected Frank Cotton tries to kill Kirsty for setting him up, dozens of hooks on chains fly through the air and hook into his flesh. Facing death and eternal damnation, Frank looks at his niece Kirsty Cotton one last time and says "Jesus wept", and then is pulled apart and torn to shreds.

Dr. Cox tries to pull a fast one on Steven Seagal in this scene from the 1994 film On Deadly Ground. MacGruder(John C. McGinley) tries the old "you can't kill me, you need need me" trick, but Steven Seagal doesn't need anybody, he's Steven fucking Seagal. So he Akidos his face into the tail rotor of helicopter.

Scene from the not-so-popular 1986 film King Kong Lives. I don't know why it wasn't as popular as the classic?(Well maybe I do, but for the sake of argument just go with me). Maybe it was the plot, King Kong getting a computer-monitored artificial heart IS a little far fetched. Maybe it was the way Kong looked......
Or maybe it was because of scenes like this....

Astinos, son of Captain Artemis meets his glorious demise. Actually it wasn't that glorious since it doesn't occur during battle, but like 5 minutes afterward. As you can guess Artemis wasn't too happy about it.

The Towering Inferno was a well done(no pun intended) disaster film from 1974. The movie puts two big fears together, fire and heights. That combination is always good for a movie death or two. The Towering Inferno has plenty. Oh, and OJ Simpson is in it too, so yeah, epic.
In this scene, as guests try to flee down the scenic elevator, an explosion blows the lift off track. One unlucky heroine falls to her death.
In this scene, Dan Bigelow(Robert Wagner) and his secretary(Susan Flannery) are both killed. Poor Lorrie breaks a window and gets blown out by a fireball.
SKIP TO 7:30 IF YOU HAVE A.D.D.

One of the originals, Jack's death was one of the most brutal deaths in the franchise. His peaceful joint smoking session gets interrupted when a drop of blood lands on his head. As he picks it off, he gasps and then a large spike is shoved through his neck splattering blood everywhere.

The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc is full of violent battles with graphic movie deaths, but a few unique ones stood out the most. In one scene, soldiers drop boulder-sized balls down chutes that lead outside of their fort, smashing into soldiers. One poor bastard goes head-on with one and gets blasted backwards.
Another great death comes to an unsuspecting soldier climbing a ladder. As the soldier gets to the top, a giant rotating defensive apparatus decapitates him in a bloody mess.
As Sheriff Tupper and Deputy Bob are about to take the Collector(Billy Zane) into custody, he punches the sheriff in the face, driving his fist right through his head. Never mess with a high-level demon that looks like Billy Zane wearing a cowboy hat. They're dangerous.

This scene is from the climax of the 1991 film The Last Boy Scout. Bruce Willis fights Milo atop the stadium catwalks in an attempt to stop the Senator's assassination. Bruce kicks Milo towards the edge of the catwalk where he is blasted by a barrage of bullets that sends him plummeting onto a helicopter's rotor blades.
So lets recap, crazy Milo gets beat up by Bruce, shot two dozen times, falls on a helicopter and is sliced to pieces. What a way to go

-Mommy, I love youuuuuuuu--SPLAT!
Happy Mothers Day! What better way to celebrate than a Great Movie Death? Child stars Macaulay Culkin and Elijah Wood go head-to-head in the 1993 film The Good Son. The little evil bastard Henry(Culkin) and his good moral cousin Mark(Wood) wrestle dangerously on the edge of a cliff and end up rolling over the edge. Mom comes just in time to grab each kid with an arm and tries to pull them up, but can't. As both of them are slipping, Mommy has to make a choice to save only one. Her evil son or good nephew. Happy Mothers Day Bitch!

Scene from the Johnnie To film Fulltime Killer. Hotshot hitman Tok, played by the always cooler than you Andy Lau,
blasts his way to the target a'la The Terminator. Once he finds the mark he tosses a bag full of grenades into his jail cell, taking the pin out of only one of them. Our victim searches frantically for the cooked grenade, but with little hope.

This scene from the Nicholas Cage film Knowing almost makes up for having to sit through the whole thing. A nearly 3 minute continuous single tracking shot that will keep your eyes glued to the screen. Truly one of the greatest plane crashes ever filmed.
While our couple is engaging in premarital sex, Jason ruins the moment by thrusting a tent stake through Debbie's chest and slicing her up the middle. What's funny is that before having sex our couple decided not to use a condom. IRONY!

Ending to the 1973 film The Wicker Man, where we find out that Sergeant Neil Howie IS the sacrifice. The revelation that the whole film had been building up to this final scene makes it one of the greatest deaths, quite shocking on first viewing.
Nicholas Cage was also sacrificed in the 2006 version.

In the climax of 1991 film The Rocketeer, our antagonist Neville Sinclair(Timothy Dalton) tries to escape with the rocket pack, but not before our hero removes the chewing gum patch plugging the leaky fuel tank. Sinclair is unaware of the device's oil combust, the rocket bursts into flames and Sinclair explodes upon crashing into the giant letters of the "Hollywoodland" sign.
