Jonnys Cult films top 10 cult film deaths

Jonny and I are having a short but well earned break but before we take a day or two away from blogging. We thought it would be fun to share with you our favourite deaths from classic cult films...
Gav’s top 5 kills
1.     Paul McCrane playing Emile Antonowsky in Paul Verhoven’s classic Robocop.
I can’t tell you how many times I watched this scene when I was growing up. During a shoot out towards the films climax Robocop shoots the wind screen out of Emile’s van. In the distraction he drives head on into a conveniently located vat of toxic waste. Completely messed up and all melted from the acid he wanders around making this hideous groan before disappearing under the wheels of Clarence Boddicker’s 6000SUX.

2.     Duane Jones playing Ben Huss in George A. Romero’s sublime zombie flick Night of the living dead.
Wow! Who saw this one coming? After surviving the night from hell Ben is accidentally shot dead by his would be rescuers, suspecting that he is a zombie. A truly wicked and surprising finale to one of the best horror films ever made. Years ahead of its time!

3.     William Vail & Teri McMann playing Kirk & Pam in Tobe Hooper’s 1974 Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
After a slow and brooding opening the true horror of Leather face is finally introduced when he suddenly appears and smashes through Kirk’s skull with a mallet. To make the attack all the more visceral and realistic Kirk’s leg kicks out in uncontrollable spasms. Moments later his girlfriend Pam is rather unceremoniously hung from a meat hook while Kirk is chopped up for Texas style BBQ. And to think Tobe was pushing for a PG-13 rating... What a knob head!

4.     John Michael Graham playing Bob Simms in John Carpenters Halloween. Following a bout of pre-marital teen sex Bob is ordered by girlfriend Lynda to ‘go get me a beer’. Whilst in the kitchen he is attacked by Michael Myers and pinned to the kitchen wall with a knife. What makes this kill really cool is Michael’s slight head turn as he studies his dangling prey. Admiring his own work, it is the only point in the film when we see any kind of emotion from Michael.

5.     Kane Hodder Playing Jason Vorhees in Friday the 13th part vii The new blood. 
 Considering the amount of kills Jason has under his belt this is definitely my favourite. Grabbing an unsuspecting camper whilst still in her sleeping bag he swings her like a baseball bat into a nearby tree! A simple but ingenious fatality which just so happens to be Kane Hodder’s favourite kill to!  


Jonny's Top 5 Kills.

1-Zombie head chop from Dawn of the Dead

Well it's my all time favourite film and this scene and kill is a classic! Achieved by simply pulling a piece of string to remove the scalp but what a great effect, always loved it and still do!

2-Mass Infected slaughter from 28 weeks later.

The good old hero hellicopter pilot risks his life and tilts the copter forward to save his pals and slice up the infected on a mass scale! Not the greatest of films but what a fantastic idea for a kill!

3-Irreversible Fire Extinguisher Scene.

Now what an intense film, very harsh to watch but this kill is WOW out there, as Emma said "The most vicious fucking start to a film ever"
Apologies for the low quality of this video but it was unfortunately the only one i could find.

4-Jason X Frozen face kill

By no means the best of the Friday 13th franchise but what a kill!
Jason in space and still as deadly!!!

5-Dr Coopers death in The Thing.

Also in my top 5 movies of all time is The Thing, This scene just shows how incredible the practical FX are, still in my opinion not surpassed by anything!

So there you have it folks, our top 10 kills, but looking back on reflection there are so so many more, maybe we'll start making this a regular feature, and see below 3 great bonus videos from our favourite killers!
Thanks for taking the time to view and hope you enjoyed,
Jonny T and Big Man Gav.
