In the Christmas spirit, we celebrate a cinematic masterpiece that has changed the face of film forever. That's right, the 2005 film Santa's Slay. Where else can you watch Bill Goldberg dressed as Santa set Fran Drescher's head on fire and drown her in eggnog? huh? Please tell me where, because I will buy tickets my friend.

Oh look, another reboot of an old horror franchise. Way to go Hollywood, way to stir the pot of originality. What's next, a Leprechaun in the Hood 2 remake? No, how about we remake Howard the fucking Duck? Yeah that's it, produced by Michael Bay, and filmed in 3D. All I can say is thank god for foreign cinema. Have you seen the new Kim Ji-woon film?
A Nightmare on Elm Street is a "reboot" of the original, that's a nice way of saying it's the same fucking movie they made 30 years ago, only with a bigger budget and better visual effects. On a plus note, Jackie Earle Haley plays as Freddy Krueger. He's the kind of guy you'd let your wife have sex with and feel damn proud of it after. Rorschach fucked my wife, Fuck yeah. Anyway, here is a conveniently edited video of all the death scenes from A Nightmare on Elm Street for your viewing pleasure. CLICK HERE TO WATCH
Watch classic death scenes from the Nightmare on Elm Street films:

Remember when Michael Bay was good? Yeah, me neither, but The Rock was pretty entertaining huh?. Filled with an endless supply of ridiculous dialog and one-liners that have become inside jokes in many circles since 1996. I mean really, just go to the IMDB memorable quotes page and check out all the hilarious quotes. Pretty soon you'll be repeating lines in your best Sean Connery impression. In this scene we get the trifecta: Funny dialog, movie death, one-liner. "How do ya like how that shit works?"

One of the best-known scenes of the entire Monty Python film series. We might not see the Black Knight actually die, but it's just too good to pass up. What really makes this scene funny is how King Arthur becomes increasingly annoyed, his dialogue lapses from medieval ("You are indeed brave, Sir Knight, but the fight is mine.") to modern ("Look, you stupid bastard, you've got no arms left!"), and finally to just plain sarcastic ("What are you gonna do, bleed on me?!").

It seems as if you grew up in the 80's and 90's you might fear a lot of things due to movies: Jaws ruined swimming at the beach, Clowns will never be the same after Stephen King's It, and Hellraiser ruined pretty much everything else. But it was Cujo that made a whole generation fear the St. Bernard, one of the friendliest breed of dogs in the world.

Skyline comes out November 12th. What's unusual about the film is that the physical production only cost $500,000. The final budget came out to about $10 million, that leaves around $9.5 million for visual effects..........gotta love Hollywood.
In this first clip, our group of survivors run away from a giant alien. Unfortunately one lady can't run faster than the fat dude from Dexter, so she gets eaten.....I think.
In this clip, our survivors see their rescue chopper destroyed by a giant alien.
In this last clip, that guy from Scrubs somehow narrowly escapes getting crushed by a giant alien foot.

Now I'm not sure any of these guys actually died, but a couple of them wont be eating solid foods for a while. In this clip, Ip man(pronounced YIP) completely destroys 10 Japanese black belts all on his own, a great fight scene. This movie reminds me of the amazing choreography of classic Shaw Brothers films, add a little war, and sprinkle on a some violence and you get Ip Man.

Either you've already seen The Host and loved it, or you've never even heard of the movie and are wondering what language they're speaking.....well, it's Korean. The Host is directed by one of my favorite Korean directors, Bong Joon-ho, who wrote and directed Memories of Murder, one of the best Korean films ever. The movie stars one of the most talented actors in the world, Song Kang-ho. But you know what sets this monster movie apart from the others? The monster itself. Unlike many other monster-themed films, the creature is fully visible from early on in the film, sometimes for large stretches of time and even in broad daylight. Yeah, take some freaking notes Cloverfield...
In this scene, the monster attacks some innocent people near the Wonhyo Bridge in the daytime.

You don't see too many characters standing up to their horror movie villains. Although Julius from Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan comes to mind. It's usually just a lot of running and screaming. But in this clip from Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers, Mikey loses his cool when Myers scratches his car and we learn why the tough guy routine doesn't work in horror films....

Jabba Desilijic Tiure, better known as Jabba the Hutt sentences Luke and Han to be fed to the monstrous Sarlacc. As he is about to be put to death, Luke breaks free, receives a new lightsaber from R2-D2, and a large battle erupts. During the distraction, Leia jumps over Jabba's tail, wraps her slave chain around the Hutt, and proceeds to strangle him to death.

With a title like Sharktopus, how can it NOT be good? Sharktopus has everything a Saturday-night Sci-fi TV-movie should have: Bad acting, buckets of blood, and a giant half-shark half-octopus. In this scene, a bungee jumper becomes Sharktopus food.
The funniest death scene from the movie has to go to this poor bastard. "Not like this! Nooooooo"
In this clip we get a glimpse of the Oscar caliber performances in this film. "Oh my God!"
But the best death scene of the movie goes to this guy who gets his head ripped off by the Sharktopus. SCENE IS AT THE 7:45 MARK

"Fuck You Dude!"
MacGruber gives Dieter Von Cunth the ultimate send off. During his wedding, MacGruber spots a disfigured Cunth (who was believed to have died in the film's final explosion). The two battle it out before MacGruber finally pushes Cunth off a cliff. As Cunth is falling, MacGruber grabs a machine gun and pumps a whole clip into him before he lands onto the rocks below. Then for good measure he shoots Cunth with a grenade launcher and urinates on his corpse. So let's review. Thrown off a cliff, shot in midair, blown up, and urinated on .....yeah, that's epic.

Sometimes a movie death comes along that will be etched into cinema history. A movie death that will change the way you see life forever. This, my friends, is not that movie death. But it's pretty damn funny. Behold.......the best scene from The Snake King. Shark Attack 3: Megalodon just did a facepalm.

Damn you Disney, you sure know how to invoke emotion into people. At least you used to......Bambi's mom wasn't enough, so you had to go and pull something like this. Leaving children everywhere traumatized and extremely sad. The death of Mufasa.

--That's gotta hurt
As many zombie fans know, the death of Capt. Rhodes in the original Day of the Dead is the greatest "death by Zombie" in the history of cinema. But there were many other great death scenes from Day of the Dead that have been overshadowed and deserve some recognition....
Although Day of the Dead had fewer zombie kills than Dawn of the Dead, the scenes of gore are much more intense and convincing. Which brings us to the deaths of Pvt. Torrez(Taso N. Stavrakis) and Pvt. Rickles(Ralph Marrero), two of the most brutal Zombie "feasting" scenes ever and two of Tom Savini's greatest moments....
In this scene, the Zombies descend into the underground facility and wreck havoc on the remaining soldiers. Our first victim is Pvt. Torrez, who is literally ripped apart by the zombies, head first! Shortly after, our second victim, Pvt. Rickles is attacked and eaten as a Zombie rips off some of his face. Play close attention to the gruesome detail that Savini gives us. Some of the effects are so well done, it makes you wonder how he did that.

-You were late for your own fuckin' funeral
Boardwalk Empire premiered on Sunday and it was everything you could expect from the great Martin Scorsese. The sets, the acting, and the cinematography were all very impressive. But when it comes to the gratuitous mob violence, Martin Scorsese shines. Boardwalk Empire delivers, as the death scenes were very violent-one scene in particular involving a shotgun to the face, but there was something a little off. Something that I have noticed Scorsese has been doing ever since The Departed in 2006, a remake of the 2002 Hong Kong film Infernal Affairs. The CGI headshot.
Not sure what the hell I'm talking about? Take a look at the final scene from The Departed. Pay close attention, because once you see it you can't unsee....
But it wasn't always like this, before CGI took over Scorsese was the master of the unconventional headshot. From the goon that gets his face shot up by Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver to this scene great scene from Goodfellas, where Stacks(Samuel L. Jackson) gets a visit from Tommy(Joe Pesci). Scorsese loves to show us the blood splatter and we get plenty of that here. Notice the difference between this scene and the computer generated one from The Departed. Does the CGI take anything away from the story? No, but it does seem to diminish some of the gritty realism. Almost to the point where it screams out: Look! I'm animated!

Mak and Nak, a young newlywed couple in Bangkok, acquire an antique brooch and an old abandoned house that soon bring them into contact with the ghost of Mae Nak, a figure of horror from one of Thailand's most enduring ghost legends....and the fun begins
Ghost of Mae Nak does have some really cool death scenes that are reminiscent of the Final Destination movies, but much like the Final Destination movies....Ghost of Mae Nak just isn't very good, but that's not why we watch these films, is it? No.....It's the Movie Deaths yo.
Just check out this scene and tell me it doesn't ooze Final Destination. In this clip Mae Nak's ghost "protects" the couple from an unscrupulous real estate agent.......
Ouch! Pretty good for a low budget Thai film huh? Too bad the movie itself isn't very good. Want to watch an awesome, entertaining Thai film? 13 Beloved aka 13: Game of Death.......hell yeah.
The film is about a about a guy who is led through 13 progressively challenging, degrading, and dangerous tasks by a mysterious caller....The tasks? Well, for example, #3 is to make three children cry, #5? Eat a plate of feces served in a Chinese restaurant......yummy! Remake rights for the film were purchased by The Weinstein Company. Of course they were...

"Oh hai! You came back"
A lot of remakes rarely live up to their predecessors, but the 1990 colorized adaption of Night of the Living Dead does the original justice. Sure, the remake was just made because most Americans can't sit down and watch a black-and-white movie anymore, but it was made well. The film is basically a faithful retelling of the original Romero story with the benefit of better special effects, cameras, and lighting. There are a few subtle differences, particularly the ending. While the original ending was very dark and full of meaning, the remake ends on a slightly more positive note, with some ham-fisted social commentary for good measure. But watching Barbara shoot that asshole Harry in the head was the most satisfying part of the film. A great death.

Die Hard is the epitome of action films. The everyday guy, caught in a not-so-everyday situation blows everything up and saves the day. This movie made Bruce Willis immortal, as Detective John "Yippee kai yay" McClane. The film had everything: Action, humor, a memorable villain, and of course......great movie deaths. Who could forget Alan Rickman falling to his death from the top of Nakatomi Plaza. A classic. But there was one death scene that really set the tone for the rest of the film, the execution of Mr. Takagi. Not only does it set the tone of violence, but it shows us that Hans Gruber really means business.......

Oh those Final Destination movies, there's only one reason we watch them......Movie Deaths. The bloodier and messier, the better. Who can forget the car crash from part 2 or that bitch getting run over by a bus in the first one. Sure, the movies have been getting worse and worse by each sequel, but the movie deaths are as bloody as ever....
In this scene, some dumb broad gets her foot stuck in an escalator. Shortly she gets sucked into the machine and crushed. Blood and guts get sprayed everywhere as she is ground up inside the escalator.
Next time.......take the stairs
What is your favorite death scene from the Final Destination series?
Saturday, September 11, 2010
Chuck Norris is dangerous enough, but Chuck Norris with a mullet? That's instant death. In The Hitman, Chuck Norris plays an undercover hit-man for the mafia. The movie is full of bad stereotypes, hilariously awful dialog, and a horrible soundtrack. Not the best Chuck Norris movie, but your eyes will still explode from the awesomeness. This video is a compilation of all his kills. Pay close attention to number 13, one of his victims is hung from a meat hook and then exploded into pieces. The best kill of the movie.......
But the most entertaining death goes to number 2, the video below is the whole hilarious scene where Norris shows a group of Iranians who's boss. Ending with a bad stereotype(whose only line is "you, fuck, motherfuck") getting blown away by Norris. Classic.....

Jimmy decides to celebrate scoring with Tina with a carefree bottle of wine. While searching for a corkscrew, little does he know Jason freakin' Voorhees is lurking in the shadows, emerging to slam the corkscrew into Jimmy's hand and then driving a meat cleaver in his face....
But this fantastic death scene is totally overshadowed by Jimmy awesome dance......
What is your favorite Friday the 13th death?
Lee(Bruce Lee) goes up against Oharra(Robert Wall), the man responsible for the death of his sister. With revenge on his mind, Lee makes his opponent look foolish as Oharra never lands a single blow. Han declares the bout over, but Oharra tries to continue when Lee's back is turned. Lee drops Oharra to the ground then leaps into the air and with all his weight, crushes Oharra's chest as he lets out his trademark death cry. The most one-sided fight in cinema history, a great finishing move, and a classic scene...
Want to watch Bruce Lee go head-to-head with Chuck Norris? Of course you do.....click HERE to watch the classic fight

The Tripper is a throwback to the old school slasher flicks of the 70's, full of horror clichés and buckets of red paint. The movie is about a psychopath in a Ronald Reagan mask who has a strong dislike for dirty hippies. Our psycho killer is in luck because the "Free Love Festival" is in town, a dirty hippie haven. There are a few off-screen deaths that would’ve been nice to see, but the best scene goes to the demise of Paul Reubens. Bisected vertically with a chainsaw by our Ronald Reagan killer.
Check out this great promotional poster for the movie, the release date of the film was on April 20, or 4/20.

Not since Friday the 13th: Part VI: Jason Lives have we seen a TRIPLE decapitation. But when Machete is surrounded by a group of thugs, he performs a deadly spin attack, slicing all three of their heads clean off.

It's actually happening, my dreams are coming true. Hobo with a Shotgun is currently being made into a full-length feature film and Rutger Hauer is playing the Hobo with a Shotgun. The original fake trailer from Grindhouse was released mainly in Canada, so American audiences missed out. Judging from the Red Band Trailer, the film doesn't hold back on the movie deaths. But there was one scene that caught my attention. At 1:38 we see a man decapitated when a truck pulls a rope attached to razor wire wrapped around his neck. The man is Robb Wells, better known as Ricky from the comedy TV series Trailer Park Boys....
Mike Jackson, best known for his role as Trevor in Trailer Park Boys is in the original Hobo with a Shotgun trailer.

Sometimes a movie will come along that will make you think, then there's Caché, a movie that will drive you fucking nuts. The director, Michael Haneke, deliberately confuses the audience by not resolving the story. Instead, he ends the film with a long static shot that leaves the viewer searching for answers. No.....literally rewinding the movie and searching for answers. Haneke is known to be a critic of "mainstream cinema", especially the way it always has a simple and superficial solution to complex problems. Haneke also uses graphic-shocking-violent scenes to jolt the audience when they least expect it. Much like this clip from Caché.....
Majid invites our protagonist to his home and states he wants Georges to be present for what follows.....
bonus points for the gurgling noises....

Another great Bond death from a list of many. GoldenEye also gave us the fall of Alec Trevelyan and Xenia Onatopp putting the squeeze on the happiest man in the world. But the death of the most epic nerd of all time tops them all....
Boris Grishenko is an overly confident hacker that often shouts his favorite catchphrase, "I am invincible!" whenever he succeeds. After emerging from the destruction of the satellite control room, Boris shouts his catchphrase. "I am Invincible!" Suddenly, a tank of liquid nitrogen explodes behind him, freezing him instantly. And we learn that Boris wasn't invincible after all.
Can't wait till the GoldenEye remake comes out for the Wii on November 2nd.
Headshots have become so cliché, there I said it. Why does every headshot have to be in the middle of the forehead as if every shooter in the movies is a skilled marksman? And now with visual effects, all you need Adobe After Effects and a couple clicks of the mouse. Sure, it's still entertaining as hell, but where's the realism? Give me Martin Scorsese's headshot in Taxi Driver over the headshots in The Departed any day of the week. Take this scene from Lucio Fulci's The New York Ripper for example of how it's done right, a headshot that would make Dario Argento jealous.

A repo man comes for Remy, but falls through a covered hole in the floor. The ground then starts to crumble, as Beth also falls below. As the repo man comes to and prepares to shoot Beth, Remy grabs an old heavy typewriter and drops it on his head, crushing it. (with very bloody results)

A group of thugs enter a hospital where Machete is recovering from a wound. As the nurse calls to warn our hero that the men are on their way, Machete grabs a few hospital instruments and proceeds to dispatch the henchmen one by one. Slashing two thugs in the face and for the coup de grâce, Machete cuts open a guy's stomach with a skull scraper and pulls out his small intestine. He then uses the intestine as a rope to leap out of a window and crash into the floor below.
From the Unrated Director's Cut, this is one of the more gruesome traps from the Saw series. The Pendulum Trap consists of a giant pendulum blade that swings down from the ceiling and two hand crushing mechanisms with switches inside that could potentially release the victim. The guy does as the video tells him and crushes his hands, but the locks don't release him. The pendulum swings down and violently cuts him in half. Just before he dies, he sees an eye watching him through a hole in the wall and whispers "I did what I was supposed to do." Seconds later the locks release....
The video below is an interesting making-of featurette of the Pendulum Trap. See how they accomplished this gory scene using a little movie magic.

Private First Class "Stump" Locke decides to climb down a cliff in an attempt to reach safety. As Stump passes a cave opening, one of the hill people grabs his arm and slices it off, which he uses to wave to Stump as he falls to his death

Yin Yang(Jet Li) and Lee Christmas(Jason Statham) both take on our villain's secondary henchman, 'The Brit'(Gary Daniels). After an extended fight, the duo end it with a double team move. As Christmas holds the Brit's head back, Yang finishes him off with an axe kick to the face, snapping his neck backwards.

Piranha 3D comes out today, if you like porn stars and gore, you will definitely enjoy this movie. Pornographic actresses Ashlynn Brooke, Gianna Michaels, and Riley Steele make cameos in the movie as party-goers who meet extremely gruesome piranha related demises. Click HERE to see some of the great death scenes from Piranha 3D.
After the video are some photos of Ashlynn Brooke having fun with her awesome death scene....... at the 2:55 mark
Ashlynn and her mold
On the set of Piranha 3D
Gianna Michaels plays the role of a topless parasailer(I know, it's a stretch) who lands in the Piranha invested waters. The Piranha chow down on Gianna's lower half, when the boat accelerates, her half eaten torso ascends into the air.
Overall, the 3D scenes were just meh (it was converted from 2D to 3D in post production), but there was one scene that stood above the rest. Derrick Jones(Jerry O'Connell), a character loosely based on Girls Gone Wild creator Joe Francis, films an underwater lesbian ballet with Riley Steele and Kelly Brook set to "The Flower Duet" from Lakmé. All in glorious 3D. Also Kelly Brooks death scene.
Jerry O'Connell gets his at the end, I'm not going to say too much but let's just say the Piranha eat his penis......in 3D

---"Remember this shit at Christmas!"
This scene from The Expendables just might put a little extra hair on your chest. Outnumbered and overpowered, our team of heroes retreat and take cover from enemy fire. Just when you think the boys might be in trouble, Caesar(Terry Crews) enters with an AA-12 Shotgun and starts blasting away. The gun is loud and powerful, turning Garza's Soldiers into hamburger meat in less than a minute. The best part is seeing "Stone Cold" Steve Austin running away after he looks down the hallway and sees Caesar blasting through soldiers.
In an attempt to draw out rival mobster Virgil Sollozzo and the rest of the Don's enemies, Luca Brasi pretends to switch allegiances and meets with Bruno Tattaglia. Luca was always cautious, as he brought a bullet-proof vest with him everywhere, but it would not save him this time. Sollozzo stabs Luca's hand with a knife, pinning it to the bar as Tattaglia's henchmen garrottes him from behind. No easy task, as you can tell from the expression on the henchman's face. Luca is a big man and isn't going to go down without a fight. Another iconic death from a iconic film.....
Later on, a message is later sent to the Corleone family: a fish wrapped in Brasi's bulletproof vest. The meaning is made clear to the Corleones.
"It's a Sicilian message. It means Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes."

Shaun of the Dead is tribute to so many well loved Zombie classics, but at it's core the Zombies only play a small role in the main story. Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright use the symbolism of the Zombie invasion as Romero did his first films. It is a smartly written comedy filled with so many pop culture references, many are missed on the first viewing. Here are a few:
Throughout the film, we see references to a fictitious pizza chain called Bub’s Pizza. This is a reference to Bub, the smarter-than-average zombie from Day of the Dead
Ed yells over the phone to Shaun’s mom, "We’re coming to get you, Barbara." This is a take on the line, "They’re coming to get you, Barbara," from Night of the Living Dead.
Shaun tries to make reservations at an exclusive seafood restaurant called Fulci’s. This is a nod to Lucio Fulci, famed Italian horror director.
You can see more here
Even the death scenes pay homage to the classics.... In this clip, the gang take refuge from the Zombie attack in the Winchester, Shaun's favorite pub. Suddenly David(Dylan Moran) gets pulled through a window and torn apart by a crowd of Zombies, but in a very familiar way. The scene is almost identical to that of Captain Rhodes in Day of the Dead.

Deep Rising has everything a B-grade monster movie should have: Action, bad jokes, blood, guts and gore. Sure, you've seen the plot a dozen times and yes it is basically Aliens on a Cruise ship, but jesus christ is it ever fun.
In this scene, our heroes are attacked by the giant sea creature. As they shoot the monster, it bursts open dropping a partially digested Billy on the floor. Still alive, Billy gets up and screams in horror until finally dropping to the ground and succumbing to his wounds. An awesome visual effect and a great death from a very underrated movie.
