Best Death Scene from a Horror Movie Thread.

I think it's been done, but with Halloween in less than 2 weeks and many doing the challenge in the DVD Talk forum, i thought it ok to re-visit and update our lists.

So I was watching a horror movie last night and g-damn if the first kill scene didn't make me shutter just a bit. It was one of the most creative and inspired kill scenes i have seen in quite sometime.

The movie I speak of is "Wrong Turn 2" and the scene i speak of is the very first...
Spoiler:
when the inbred mutuant takes an axe and gorily slices a girls' body in half with entrails falling and the axe going through as if the body were made of butter. it was so nice and smooth and shocking that i simply adored it. and then when they take each half and drag it off was just so awesome!!!


with that one in mind...

what do you think is the most inspired and simply coolest death scene specifically from a horror movie?




7,500 and loved every minute of being here!

So many to choose from. I'd have to say, as shitty as the film is, the chick riding her man's stump in Jason Goes To Hell who gets the tent stake through the chest and is ripped in half is pretty damn awesome.

Runner up goes to Joe Pilato getting ripped to pieces in Day of the Dead.

Don't remember which one in the series it was, but Jason killing the guy in the wheelchair. The dead guy rolls down a long set of stairs.

I'll have to come back later 'cos I need to recall some - there were so many of them. But, scott1598, the one you're talking about, from Wrong Turn 2, it was really awesome and a bit over the top, so I started laughing like mad when I saw it Adored it too.

The basketball scene in "Deadly Friend" has always been a personal favorite.

Jason X was a crappy movie, but it did have one cool death. I like the scene where Jason shoves some girl's face into a sink of liquid nitrogen and then shatters her frozen face onto the table.

One of Tom Savini's best kills. Followed closely by the "eyeball scene" in Zombie 2.

That's the one I thought of when I read the thread title. Good scene.
