Let us know in the comments!
Final Destination 3 (2006)
Ashley and Ashlyn’s Death By Tanning Bed was hands down one of the most… creative ways to go ever shot.
The Omen (1976)
The demonic-influenced suicide got things started, but the sheet-glass decapitation was the pinnacle.
The infamous shower scene is infamous for a reason. And while it depicts an incredibly violent murder, it’s remarkably restrained with showing the violence…
Michael Myers’ murderous rampage pretty much defined the slasher film genre.
Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
Johnny Depp’s swallowed-into-the-bed, geyser of blood death is certainly one of the bloodiest of all time, and most creatively executed.
The early death of top-billed star Drew Barrymore took a page from Hitchcock’s book and added a heavy dose of slasher-film sensibilities, effectively reviving the genre for another go ‘round.
The reverse bear trap scene got the torture porn revolution started with, well, not so much a bang as a crunch.
The Cabin In The Woods (2012)
This movie overall wins for originality, but the elevator massacre wins for referential self-awareness.
The Chest-buster scene is famous now, but at the time no one - not the audience, not even the cast, could have known what was coming.
Let The Right One In (2008)
The pool scene from Låt den rätte komma in is not the most terrifying or the goriest death. Rather, it takes top prize on our list due to its artistry and restraint.
