Tormented - Definitely Too Late

Tormented is the story of a fat unpopular student who was teased by all the cool kids in school. To escape the bullying he commits suicide and then comes back from the dead to exact revenge on the students who made his life hell. Real original eh? Who cares, people die in it right? Good enough for me...

In this scene, designated school bitch Tasha(April Pearson) is running away from the ghost(or zombie, I'm not really sure) of Mullet, the....ah geez 'Tormented' student who just castrated her boyfriend after having.....get sex. Kind of redundant now isn't it? Anyway, she falls into an open grave and in a desperate attempt to save her own ass confesses her love to him and says, "I would have gone out with you... maybe it's not too late?"........and queue the killer zombie ghost.

Tormented is like if Skins(UK version) and The Rage: Carrie 2 had a baby, then urinated on it. Not very good, but at least some of the death scenes were decent.

Tokyo Gore Police - Face Rip

Oh boy, where do I begin? First off, not all Japanese films are like this and not all Japanese people like these kind of movies. This is the same country that gave us Akira Kurosawa, Yasujiro Ozu, and Kenji Mizoguchi; Japanese directors who have created some of the most critically acclaimed films off all time. Just like in America, there are different subgenres of horror that deliberately focus on graphic portrayals of gore and violence. We here in the States call it a 'splatter' or 'gore film'. Not everyone's cup of tea(though this film is actually received well by critics), but it's right up Greatest Movie Death's alley and today we give praise to the Japanese Gore genre with a scene from Tokyo Gore Police.

The film is set in a futuristic and chaotic Japan where a virus that mutates humans into monstrous creatures called "Engineers" has been released. The virus causes bizarre weapons to sprout from any injury. Our heroine Ruka is helping the police force in order to find her father's killer. In this clip we see Riku take out a bad guy with her newly equipped claw-hand.

This clip is actually pretty tame compared to other classic scenes from the movie, like gator girl, Penis Cannon, amputee ninja, and many more to come...

Magadheera - A Long Way Down

Ok, I spoke too soon. Maybe declaring that Greatest Movie Deaths is back then not posting for two months was definitely NOT the right way to do things. But I just lost the will, with Google threatening to shut down the site if I didn't remove their precious ads because of the "mature content" and the constant removal of videos by Youtube for copyright infringement, it just wasn't worth it anymore. I lost the inspiration.....

.....That is until I saw our next Movie Death, my eyes lit up and the hairs on my testicles rose as if I found out my ex-girlfriend was hit by a bus. I was re-energized again, and I realized I never started this site for the money, sure the money DID help, but NO. It was for you people, my readers, all three of you...

So without further adieu, let's get to some movie deaths....

This is a scene from the Telugu film Magadheera, a historical drama about a warrior who protects the princess of his kingdom, only to be killed and reincarnated to get his revenge. In the climax of the film, as our protagonist is in danger of getting mowed down by the rotor blades of a helicopter, Telugu megastar Chiranjeevi arrives in a speeding jeep, drives it up a ramp while jumping out before it crashes into the helicopter in mid-air à la Die Hard 4. Our Villain, refusing to except defeat grabs the present day princess and prepares to jump off a cliff with her. Our hero saves the day when he throws a sword at the villain as he leaps, severing his arm and sending him plummeting to his death. All that's missing is a *splat*

To watch the whole fight scene click here.

Another great scene where our hero takes on 100 warriors by himself, lots of entertaining deaths, watch it here

Greatest Movie Deaths is back!(for real this time)....Fuck Yeah
