Horror movie fans everywhere can attest to the fact that they are capable of tolerating the gruesome killing of people on screen. Why else would they sit down to watch a slasher film?
These are the kind of deaths that make audiences gasp in absolute terror, turn their heads away or cover their eyes in disgust, and even send chills down their spines.
They are also considered spectacular. Kill scenes are the main reason people go and watch horror movies for in the first place.
In the video above, you’ll see 10 of the most gruesome and inventive horror movie kills of all time, including the frozen head smash in Jason X, a grisly death by basketball in Deadly Friend, and Johnny Depp getting sucked into his bed in A Nightmare on Elm Street.
Sit back and enjoy.
