    What are some of your favorite death scenes in a horror movie?

    I'm not sure if a spoiler alert is necessary, but be aware that there just might be a spoiler involved. After all, some movies end with a death scene.

    Anyhow, here's a few of my favorites, with the movie listed first.

    1. The Beyond - The scene where the girl gets half her head shot off. The F/X artists even got detailed with her teeth. Talk about a labor of love.

    2. Phantasm - The guy that gets drilled by the ball. I'm surprised the MPAA allowed all that blood to spurt out. Although no movie has made me question the MPAA like Hellraiser.

    3. A Nightmare on Elm Street 3 - The part where the girl gets slammed head first into the t.v. while Freddy says, "Get ready for prime time bitch!"

    4. Tenebra - The guy getting his head split. That was just a wicked shot.

    5. Living Dead Girl - That throat munching scene made me think how scary it must be to watch Roger Ebert at an all you can eat buffet.

    6. Zombie - The eye gouging scene. Classic!

    I can go on, but I want to see which ones you can come up with. I'm sure there's some great ones out there. I haven't even scratched the surface. Let em rip.

    (1) MANIAC- Savini's shotgun death. Unbelievable!

    (2) CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD- Morghen gets drilled through the head.

    (3) THE GORE GORE GIRLS- Stripper gets her throat slit and her ass smashed to a bloody pulp by a meat tenderizer.

    (4) THE BURNING- Raft Massacre. IMO, one of the greatest moments in slasher film history.

    (5) GALAXY OF TERROR- Chick gets screwed to death by a giant worm.

    just a couple

    Death-by-whirlpool in Halloween 2 - ouch!

    The splinter to the eye in Zombie - double ouch!

    Hannibal vs. the two cops in SOTL (and the aftermath) - triple ouch!

    The camper girl in Jason Goes to Hell (unrated) - quadruple ouch!

    My new current fave, the Savini shotgun to the head in Maniac - quintuple ouch!

    Not sure what comes after quintuple, so that's enough. :)

    Nightmare on Elm Street 3, the puppet maker being turned into a puppet with his veins as strings.
    City of the LIving Dead, the girl who throws up her internal organs.
    Sleepaway Camp, Judy getting the hot curling iron in her...well you know.
    Dead Alive, it happens quick, the woman with the red dress on, a zombie puts his fist through her mouth from the back of her head.
    That actually scared me because it happened so quick.

    for me its any death scene where the asshole/bad guy dies. like in evil dead 2 where the redneck finally gets his ass in the ground!

    worst death scene is when a pretty girl dies very early in the beginning. Little to no chance of nudity.

    Oh, and the brain drill scene in City of the Living Dead for sure along with just about every Sleepaway Camp death.
