The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #1 – A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (1984)

This is it....the moment we've all been waiting for! The cream of the scream! The (dream) master of disaster! The baron of burn! My 100th post on this blog and the culmination of a months long project all coincide for one momentous occasion. I hope you're all wearing your fedoras, razor gloves, and Christmas sweaters, … Continue reading The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #1 – A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (1984)

The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #2 – THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE (1974) – Plus a bonus kill!

On Monday I promised you two kills for my penultimate post on this list and, dammit, you're getting two kills! But first, I have to admit something: this is becoming increasingly bittersweet. On the one hand I'm thrilled and excited to write about these entries at the top of the list; scenes that have awed … Continue reading The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #2 – THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE (1974) – Plus a bonus kill!

The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #3 – HELLRAISER (1987)

Guys, I fucked up. Today I was writing this post and I inadvertently referenced a film that COMPLETELY SLIPPED MY FREAKING MIND! Dear God, you all deserve better than this. To make up for it, I'll be doing a #2A and #2B on Thursday. Thankfully, the scene I forgot was one I intended to rank … Continue reading The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #3 – HELLRAISER (1987)

The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #4 – THE THING (1982)

Now that we're down to the final four, things are getting tough. I've oscillated between two scenes for this spot for the better part of two weeks, and I'm sure once I hit "publish" I'll second-guess myself once again. But we're in the final weeks here and no pick is a bad pick. So, without … Continue reading The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #4 – THE THING (1982)

The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #5 – ZOMBIE (1979)

We've entered the Top 5! Repeat! Top 5, I am inside you! Whoops, didn't mean it that way (or did I? *ha-wink*) On an editorial side note, it occurred to me right around entry #10 that this countdown will conclude with my 100th post on this blog, which is totally cool and totally unplanned. It's … Continue reading The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #5 – ZOMBIE (1979)

The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #6 – PSYCHO (1960)

We're on the literal cusp of the top 5, ladies and gentlemen, and I have to say this has been pretty fun. Going into this project I basically knew which kills were going to be solidified in my top 5, but everything else was a crap-shoot. I made some additions I wasn't expecting, and I … Continue reading The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #6 – PSYCHO (1960)

The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #7 – SINISTER (2012)

Here I go again, breaking my own rules. Just as I did with Friday the 13th, I'm choosing two kills for this entry. However, this go-round the decision was not made based on the volume of films or kills, but rather on the style of the kill and the effectiveness of the scares they create. … Continue reading The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #7 – SINISTER (2012)
