Remake to Herschell Gordon Lewis’ cult classic 2000 Maniacs. Back in the 1960s, Herschell Gordon Lewis, along with partner and frequent collaborator David Friedman, revolutionized horror by creating the "splatter film." Absurd plots, buckets of blood, and dismembered body parts pushed the subgenre into popularity. While not technically "good", Lewis' films were hits and have since taken their place in the pantheon of classic horror cinema. 2001 Maniacs tries to capture the "quality" of the original and succeeds. The blood, the boobs, the gore, and the comedy are all there. In this scene(a remake of a death from the original), our victim is tied at each limb to four separate horses. A man cracks a whip and each of her appendages are torn off at the chest, we see each rip as she screams and spits out blood in glorious B movie drive-in fashion.

His wife and infant son were run over, his best friend Goose was burned beyond recognition. To say the least, Max is pissed off and he's out for revenge. Max dons his police leathers and takes a supercharged black Pursuit Special to hunt down Toecutter and his ruthless motorcycle gang who are responsible. In this scene, Max is in high speed pursuit of the brutal and sadistic Toecutter who is on his Kawasaki Z1000. The Toecutter is briefly able to pull away from our hero, that is until Max hits the super charger and gets right on Toecutter's ass. Toecutter looks back as he gives it all he's got, suddenly a semi-truck appears and Toecutter is forced into its path. The bike is destroyed as Toecutter is violently crushed underneath the truck. The money shot comes right before impact when Toecutter takes off his goggles-not sure where he found the time to do that-and his eyes pop out of his head. Classic friggin' scene

It really is an art, the it's-so-bad-it's-good genre that Japan seems to have mastered. Hollywood can learn a thing or two...or three, but they're too busy making films that are so-bad-it's-not-even-funny. In comes Kataude mashin gâru, aka The Machine Girl. The acting is terrible, the story is terrible, and the CGI is terrible but god damn if the film doesn't shit out entertainment like it has a bad case of the runs. This movie has it all: Ninjas, flying guillotines, drill bras, and buckets of blood, did I mention drill bras? In this scene, we see the ridiculously over-the-top action at work when our protagonists get ambushed by the Mighty Morphin Power Ninjas. One unlucky character gets sliced to pieces by ninja stars then proceeds to explode in a geyser of blood. The fun doesn't stop there though, keep watching as Ami proceeds to annihilate the ninjas with a high-powered machine gun attached to her nub. One of the ninjas gets shot up to the point where his screaming flesh torn skull is all that remains. This movie will go down in history as one of the greatest fucking films ever made, right along Citizen Kane and The Godfather II. The Machine Girl, did I mention the drill bra?

The only man who could come up with a movie death as bizarre as this one is the legend himself, Takashi Miike. Fudoh is one of Miike's earlier films that looks like a typical Yakuza story on the outside, but is filled with so many wonderfully weird over-the-top moments that it breaks through cliché and goes into epic. Riki Fudoh (Shosuke Tanihara) is the youngest son of a Yakuza boss who murders Riki's older brother to settle a dispute between rival gangs. Riki is repulsed by the ways of the mob—particularly his fathers, so he vows revenge with the help of some recruits. One of them is Mika (played by porn star Miho Nomoto), who sports a blow gun and freakish muscle control in her nether regions to create the ultimate stripper assassin. In this scene we see her at work, taking out a mob boss using her um.......special talents.

The T-1000 calculates John Conner's next move and revisits his house in hope that the boy tries to contact his foster parents. He terminates Janelle, John's foster mom, and impersonates her. The T-1000 remains in this form until John calls to warn them, but his attempt to lure Conner home over the phone is thrown off when Todd yells at the dog to stop barking; Dogs are well known for their ability to detect Terminator units and frequently start barking when exposed to them. At this point, the T-1000 is annoyed at Todd for giving away the charade. The T-1000 switches hands and extends his left arm as we hear a thud off camera. After Arnold hangs up the phone, the camera pans from the T-1000's limb, to a pierced carton of milk, and finally, to Todd, who is impaled through the mouth and the back of the head.

Rookie director Damien Cockburn can't control his actors and after a $4 million special effects accident, the studio threatens to shut down production. Cockburn, in a desperate attempt to save the movie, drops the cast into the middle of the jungle to film them covertly, hoping to capture authentic emotions from a real jungle experience. Once they land, Cockburn gives a very inspirational speech to get the actors motivated. Just as Cockburn gains the actors' confidence, he steps on an old land mine and blows himself up.
The best part comes soon after when the actors think it's a stunt

Grimm(Robert LaSardo) aka 'The Grim Reaper' loses control of his Chrysler 300C after running over some caltrops and is then blasted off the road by 14K's(Robin Shou) missile launcher. He comes out of the wreckage practically unscathed, gloating about how indestructible he is, that is until he meets his sudden and gruesome demise. He's the Reaper. You can burn him, you can fucking shoot him, but you just can't motherfucking kill him. Well......maybe you can.
You may remember Robin Shou as Liu Kang from Mortal Kombat. He will reprise his role in the upcoming yet constantly delayed Mortal Kombat: Devastation.
